En­ergy and hor­mone bal­ance for new mums

Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - REGIONAL EXTRA - /dc­den­tal­clinic

TIRED­NESS, ex­haus­tion and some­times even be­ing over­whelmed can be a reg­u­lar part of par­ent­ing as you learn to ad­just to your new role as a mother, or mother of a grow­ing fam­ily.

The first 4-6 weeks post birth are when most women present with the most se­ri­ous short term is­sues, such as re­cov­ery from tears, bruis­ing and blood loss along­side is­sues with milk sup­ply, feed­ing at­tach­ment and breast health is­sues (nip­ple thrush, mas­ti­tis).

At this early time, we of­fer our pa­tients the op­tion of a quick 15 minute check in or phone con­sult to get on top of any of these is­sues.

We also make sure you are linked into avail­able ser­vices such as lac­ta­tion clinic, phys­io­ther­apy, Early Moth­er­hood Ser­vice etc.

The com­bi­na­tion of nat­u­ral medicines and these ser­vices help the ma­jor­ity of our pa­tients get on top of al­most ev­ery­thing that can hap­pen in the first 4-6 weeks.

How­ever, we also no­tice a huge vol­ume of new mothers pre­sent­ing from 6-12 months post par­tum.

This seems to be when most of the fa­tigue, hor­monal im­bal­ances and un­der­ly­ing health is­sues rear their ugly heads.

Not to men­tion, that by then, new mums have now had 6-12 months of in­ter­rupted sleep!

Pe­ri­ods can re­turn, breast feed­ing can be­come com­pro­mised due to in­fec­tions, back to work, busy sched­ules and de­mands of moth­er­hood, fa­tigue, aches, acne and low mood can make you feel like you are not cop­ing any more.

Mak­ing time to care for your­self is vi­tally im­por­tant even though it feels im­pos­si­ble.

Rest as­sured there are many av­enues of sup­port avail­able, but when there just doesn’t seem like you have any time in the day (or night) for you to get what you need, the best ap­proach is to be­gin e: info@dc­den­tal­clinic.com.au with so­lu­tions for your well­be­ing that don’t take time.

Tend­ing to your nu­tri­tional needs (which are the high­est com­pared to any other stage of life) through sup­ple­men­ta­tion is a great start.

Util­is­ing very safe and ef­fec­tive reme­dies, your natur­opath can help with sleep de­pri­va­tion, re­cov­ery and heal­ing, mood, en­ergy lev­els, breast­feed­ing and more.

One of the most won­der­ful reme­dies for post birth re­cov­ery and re­gain­ing en­ergy lev­els is a per­son­alised herbal mix.

Belinda and So­phie can tai­lor your mix with calm­ing, re­ju­ve­nat­ing and restor­ing herbs to stim­u­late heal­ing of tis­sues, re­duce in­flam­ma­tion and re­store en­ergy.

Whether an acute in­fec­tion (mas­ti­tis, cold, flu, ear in­fec­tion, si­nus) or more chronic health is­sue (in­som­nia, stress, mood, acne, hor­mone im­bal­ance, prepa­ra­tion for your next baby, breast feed­ing changes) we are here to help with safe, ef­fec­tive medicines and ad­vice.
