A Taste Of Our Own Medicine: 3 Vital Keys To Ending Postnatal Depletion, Nurturing Mothers And Improving Communities
By Danett C Bean, DAAM
There is an epidemic that is going on. It is estimated that one out of every two mothers are affected by it. No one is talking about it, but a lot of women feel it. Intense fatigue, emotional fluctuations, memory issues, hormonal and other health complications, which for some, can be debilitating and even life threatening.
It's called Postnatal Depletion, being depleted after having a baby, and can extend from the first days of birth to more than ten years later, possibly predisposing the mother to later health complications. There is a different reality after giving birth than what is presented to us. All women don't just snap back into shape after having a baby and if they don't feel good, it's postpartum depression.
In this ground breaking book, Dr. Danett Bean (Doctor of Acupuncture & Asian Medicine), preventive care & women's health specialist, integrative medicine practitioner, and survivor of postnatal depletion, uncovers the roots to this phenomena as a societal issue and offers practical solutions to preventing and ending this condition. If you are an expectant or new mother, father or plan to be one someday, experienced parent, or you have parents that you care about in your life, you can't afford to not read this book. This book comes with helpful tools, including: Postnatal Care Template, Dr. Danett's personal list of things that helped her to recover, Directory of Resources and a list of Specifics Tips To Help Support Mothers, plus video contributions from maternal care experts.
