EASING YOUR TRANSITION INTO MOTHERHOOD
It’s just what we get told after having a baby… that it’s normal to feel anxious and exhausted.
But it’s not.
You don’t need to live with postnatal depletion, depression or anxiety.
You don’t need to struggle with a lack of energy and constant hormonal challenges.
If you’re feeling different than you did pre-baby, it is your body’s way of telling you that something is out of balance.
Well relax, mama. I’m here to help you work out what it is.

Postnatal depletion is a physical and mental deterioration caused not just by the process of giving birth and breastfeeding, but by the stresses and strains of modern parenthood.
It is a syndrome of accumulated issues including deep fatigue, hyper-vigilance and a feeling of being overwhelmed.
“Some days it really feels as no-one appreciates everything you do for them. It feels like a thankless job.” – said millions of mamas out there.
Postnatal depletion can carry on for almost a decade if not treated.

How does Naturopathic Postpartum Care Work?
I am like your clinical detective, I will draw upon my training (Bachelor in Health Science) and pull together information from your previous health history, current health issues, pathology test results and other sources to get to the root cause of why you’re unwell (yay, science!). But I also have a slightly woo-woo side – drawing upon my experience amongst healers in Brazil. So rest assured that I have all things covered.
Depending on your individual presentation I may utilise some of the following diagnostic assessment tools:
Nutritional deficiency checks
Hormonal balance tests
Detailed dietary assessment
Blood tests to assess your cellular health and tissue performance
Genetic testing regarding metabolism of specific nutrients
Diagnosed conditions such as autoimmune or thyroid conditions
Signs and symptoms in any system you reveal in your consultation
A detailed personal and family health history
Environmental toxin load from work or home
The information gathered during the investigation helps me put together a plan to improve your health with diet, lifestyle, herbs and nutrition, decreasing those annoying and nagging symptoms that are stopping you from reaching your full potential. So that you can enjoy life again.
Your plan is delivered in a Treatment plan Consultation (which is delivered 1-2 weeks after you initial consultation). The plan will always include very detailed diet and lifestyle interventions (food as medicine), specific to you, which is also appropriately augmented with nutritional supplementation, herbal medicine and sometimes lifestyle modifications.
I may also recommend support from other practitioners or be in communication with other carers to ensure comprehensive care and optimum results. The aim is to ensure you have sufficient energy and nutritional status to live life the way you dream of.
