Katie Bressack is an award-winning holistic health coach who specializes in women's hormonal health. With her support, the women she counsels prepare their bodies for pregnancy, postpartum, increase energy levels, get their periods back and on track, eat healthier and maintain a balanced mood.
Katie joins me to talk about the fourth trimester, which is the period of time immediately following the birth of a child. We don’t often talk about the reality of postpartum and I think it’s important to shed light on the huge hormonal changes that occur and the very specific needs of a new mother during that period after pregnancy.
In this episode, we talk about what happens to our hormones after delivery, the woefully inadequate care that most women receive after having a baby, how you can set yourself up for success in the postpartum period, the type of support we need during the fourth trimester, and so much more!
