Mothercare

Mothercare refers to the changing demands and requirements of our bodies both after giving birth in the post-partum period and ongoing as our children grow, through all stages of motherhood - 

  • Nutritional requirements

  • Sleep

  • Changing hormones

  • Mood

  • Energy

  • Coping with stress

  • Managing pre-existing health conditions - PCOS, endometriosis, etc

  • The need to prioritise relaxation

  • Movement

  • Environment

  • Organisation and time constraints

Why Mothercare?
 

During pregnancy, our physiology undergoes significant alteration.

 

Nutritional requirements change, our need for rest is greater and not only do our hormones enter a completely different state than we have ever experienced before, but our brains evolve to the point where we form entirely new neuronal connections and significant change to brain matter.

 

Recovery from pregnancy and birth also poses vastly different demands on nutrients, sleep and energy. Hormones will once again shift but will work in different patterns to our pre-pregnancy levels & those brain changes? It can take two years for changes to re-occur here and still, will never be the same as before. We are physiologically changed forever (you are incredible!).

 

Mothercare is understanding how to support ourselves as mothers. Understanding how to adapt to the changes of motherhood and what we need to prioritise to flourish & thrive. Sometimes, all we need is a plan.

  • Mothers who are struggling with the early years -sleep, energy and mood and need a plan

  • Working mothers who are struggling with work-life balance and need a plan

  • Mothers with pre- or postpartum hormonal and women's health conditions such as PCOS, endometriosis, thyroid conditions and more

  • Mothers who are experiencing changes to mood such as stress, anxiety, PMS and minor depression

Supplements

both herbal and nutritional can assist with energy, sleep, mood and stress. Motherhood is the ideal time to implement some extra support. 

Diet

Demands and nutritional requirements change after having babies, and so does the way we need to look at organising and making food choices - simply.

Movement

pushing your body too hard will often result in putting you a step backward. Likewise, too little will not give you the energy your body needs. Discover restorative movement options that are easy and perfect for you and your situation. 

Stress

sleep deprivation, the demands of being a carer, changes to our bodies and for those juggling a lot of balls, stress is inevitable and can be managed so that you feel clear and in control.

Testing and Tracking

We discuss testing options for nutritional deficiencies, hormones and more. I will often recommend DUTCH testing or saliva testing hormones for those struggling with mood or cycles in addition to any testing being carried out with your GP or specialist. Testing is entirely optional.
