08 Feb 8: Re-defining Postpartum Healthcare with Dr. Angela Potter
Do you feel like there is a pressure on women to return to their body, mindset and routine quickly after childbirth? Most women feel this way.
Dr. Angela Potter is here to talk about some of the biggest struggles and myths of postpartum healing and recovery as well as review some of the best steps to take to stay balanced, healthy and happy postpartum.
Dr. Angela Potter is a women’s health naturopathic medicine doctor and leading expert in postpartum healing and recovery. After having her first child, she experienced the hardships that mothers frequently experience after giving birth. She was amazed at how much pressure is put on mothers and how little support is given for whole body wellness in this really unique time in a woman’s life. From there, she developed her postpartum wellness protocol that she uses with mothers nationally. Dr. Potter is a nutritionist as well as a doctor, and she practices in Portland, Oregon where she lives with her husband and two toddlers.
We are talking about the importance of allowing our bodies to have the time and the space to really develop and shift postpartum and the support you should have in order to do that.
In Today’s Episode We Discuss:
- The most common struggle of postpartum
- Some of the biggest myths when it comes to healing
- Why it is important to rest before getting back into regular exercise
- Hormones and nutrients to pay attention to postpartum
- Why you should have a female group to empathize with
