The Postnatal Depletion Cure
While postpartum depression has become a recognizable condition, THE POSTNATAL DEPLETION CURE is the first book to treat root causes of mommy brain, baby blues, and other symptoms that leave mothers feeling exhausted.Any woman who has read What to Expect When You're Expecting needs a copy of THE POSTNATAL DEPLETION CURE. Filled with trustworthy advice, protocols for successful recovery, and written by a compassionate expert in women's health, this book is a guide to help any mother restore her energy, replenish her body, and reclaim her sense of self.Most mothers have experienced 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% during pregnancy, and the placenta saps her of essential nutrients that she needs to be healthy and contented. But with postnatal care ending after 6 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.
If you're looking to reduce the drama, frustration, stress, and resentment that are all too common in our homes and lives today, this inspiring and inviting workbook will help you chart a new path - toward greater emotional awareness, clear communication, and even joyful moments in parenting (remember those?) This is a wonderful resource for anyone who wants to be a more positive and present parent.

Add in work-life balance, disconnection from friends and families, and a healthy dose of social media-induced anxiety and you've got a recipe for disaster. Being everything to everyone is just too much pressure and the cracks are starting to show. And the fallout goes beyond moms - it is affecting our husbands, partners, colleagues, and especially our kids. So how do we stop the burnout cycle?From years of personal and professional practice, Dr. Sheryl Ziegler, a Denver-based child psychotherapist who has counseled families and children for two decades, has devised a prescriptive program for addressing this epidemic - teaching moms that they can find ways to reenergize themselves and not get mired in guilt. Filled with real stories from real moms and empowering, proven solutions, Mommy Burnout offers the hope modern moms need to save marriages, keep kids happy, and most important, heal themselves.
