A little preparation can go a long way! But the actual length of preparation depends on each individual’s health. The question of when to begin is best answered in a naturopathic visit but here is a general guideline I use when making recommendations.
You are a new mom, a few months past birth, and things don’t feel quite right. Sure, you are tired from sleepless nights, breastfeeding and balancing responsibilities of being a mom and a person BUT something still doesn’t feel right! You are experiencing anxiety, insomnia, fast heart rate, fatigue, weight loss, and irritability. Or you are experiencing absolute exhaustion, weight gain (not the loss expected after a few months), constipation, dry skin, and depression. You might have wondered if you suffer from postpartum depression or if this is just life as a mom.
