Today’s episode is a first for us, but as you may have figured out by now–we love talking about real life and keeping our content true to our hearts and lives! Postpartum health is not a topic you hear a whole lot about in mainstream health or media–at least not a lot of helpful information–yet it’s a chapter in life that can truly make or break your health journey and even your experience as a new mother.
Creating a human from scratch is a miraculous feat–one that demands an incredible amount of energy and nutrients and requires a period of time for healing afterwards. On today’s episode, we’re sharing our take on postpartum health (hint: it has nothing to do with getting your pre-pregnancy abs back), how to nourish your body and baby best during this time and a few super helpful tips for supporting your health through this chapter so you can truly thrive as “mommy”.
Motherhood is an incredible journey and our hope is that you can prioritize your wellbeing so that you can best serve your beautiful family. A healthy mama makes a healthy home!
