Publisher's Summary

While postpartum depression has become a recognizable condition, The Postnatal Depletion Cure is the first book to treat the nutrient depletion, sleep loss, and emotional shifts that afflict women up to a decade after giving birth.

Most mothers have experienced exhaustion, pain, forgetfulness, indecision, low energy levels, moodiness, or some form of baby brain. And it's no wonder: The process of growing a baby depletes a mother's body in substantial ways - on average, a mother's brain shrinks 5 percent during pregnancy, and the placenta saps her of essential nutrients that she needs to be healthy and contented. But with postnatal care ending after six weeks, most women never learn how to rebuild their strength and care for their bodies after childbirth. As a result, they can suffer from the effects of depletion for many years, without knowing what's wrong as well as getting the support and treatments that they need.

Any woman who has heard What to Expect When You're Expecting needs a copy of The Postnatal Depletion Cure. Filled with trustworthy advice and protocols for successful recovery from a compassionate expert in women's health, The Postnatal Depletion Cure will help every mother restore her energy, replenish her body, and reclaim her sense of self.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"The best programs and solutions for health issues are born of doctors that want to help themselves or their loved ones. That is how Dr. Serrallach arrived at his understanding of postnatal depletion, and what makes this book so helpful to women with the same issue, which is a world epidemic. His book is a guide to reclaiming optimal health that any mother who has given birth in the last seven years should read." (Alejandro Junger, MD, The New York Times best-selling author of Clean, Clean Eats, and Clean Gut and founder of the acclaimed Clean Program)

"Moms, let's be real: having a baby is hard. It can wreak havoc on your energy, your body, and even your concentration. Post-baby, women need to practice self-care more than ever before, yet have less time than ever before. With great compassion and creativity, Dr. Serrallach proposes an answer - we can make little changes to our sleep habits, our eating habits, the way we talk to our loved ones, and to our expectations for ourselves to protect and fortify ourselves every day. Every woman deserves good health, and The Postnatal Depletion Cure will show you how to reclaim yours." (Dawn Dais, author of The Sh!t No One Tells You: A Guide to Surviving Your Baby's First Year)

"Thank you Dr. Serrallach for writing this very eye opening and super important book! Postnatal depletion effects all moms, new or years out. It's so important to properly take the time and space to heal from your pregnancy and birth especially, in a culture where "getting back to normal quickly " is applauded. We all know it takes time for the new normal to work itself out, and you can't rush a process if you want it to have lasting, good and healthy results. I'm literally making all my clients and their partners read this as part of my pregnancy, doula and new mom coaching!" (Lori Bregman, celebrity doula, pregnancy and new mom coach; author of The Mindful Mom To Be)

Every mom should read

As a mom and HG survivor I wish all doctors were this knowledgeable. I thought he did a wonderful job breaking down complex subjects into a tangible action plan while still taking into account the whole body, environmental stressors and life in general. I especially liked his real life examples of what it’s really like to be a mom and why it’s happening. “Flow state” and returning to it from a moms perspective and his own experiences as a father I really enjoyed.
I would love to see another book with more info on prenatal depletion and or the role it plays on embryo development and or microbiome when depleted.

Feeling understood

I haven’t implemented the plan yet, but I will starting this week after grocery shopping. Already it has made me feel better though. Was tired of feeling like I’m just not up for the job of being a mother. Also tired of being asked about Postpartum depression and when they realize that’s not it, I’m dismissed. Just reading something that lets me know that there is something that many mothers feel and I am not alone is amazing. Can’t wait to start this process.

Inspiring and provides necessary support for any struggling mom

This book has helped me through a hard time in motherhood, as a mom to a second baby in a crazy time with a toddler at home. My body has been struggling to recover from the birth and i was feeling drained and hopeless. This book has provided me much needed support, answers to why this is how I feel, and what can I do to help my self out of it and to a much happier me. A truly life changing book. Would recommend any mom who wants to understand what has happened to her mind and body post babies, and how to get back to being healthy and happy.

great info

This book is a great starting point for anyone struggling with their body postpartum. It offers some good insights and talking points to begin the discussion with your healthcare providers about tests to run, lifestyle changes to make etc. I bought a hard copy to keep as a reference source when working with my own pre and post natal clients (certified pre/post natal personal trainer and health coach).
