Why do I feel so depleted?
After you have given birth to your beautiful baby, it is common to feel extremely depleted as you adjust to your new role as a mother. Growing a human takes a lot of resources! Pregnancy places a huge demand on the body and often results in multiple nutrient deficiencies post-birth. With a new baby on the scene, lack of sleep and complete lifestyle reversal, it's common to feel run down and overwhelmed.
How does Nutritional Medicine help postpartum?
Nutritional Medicine can help by replenishing nutrients lost during pregnancy and birth to get your energy levels back up. Specific nutritional strategies can be used to encourage milk supply if you are breastfeeding as well as assist with healing post birth.
I can help you with lifestyle strategies to manage lack of sleep and the huge adjustments of becoming a parent or expanding your family.
Issues I can help you with:
- low energy
- healing post-birth
- low milk supply
- weight management
- stress and overwhelm
- unsettled baby

Can I get a health fund rebate?
Certain Australian private health funds offer rebates for nutrition consults, at varying levels of cover. Please see Health Fund Rebates to determine if you fund may offer you a rebate.
How many sessions will I need?
If you have had a healthy pregnancy and birth, you many only need 1 or 2 sessions to help replenish nutrients lost during pregnancy and get you back on track to balanced health. If you suffered a more difficult pregnancy or birth, you may need a few more sessions.
