Healing Postpartum Overwhelm, Birth Trauma, Breastfeeding Grief
When mothers cannot shake off feelings of loss, guilt, failure, shame, sadness, and similar feelings, we truly suffer.
Some of us feel as though permanently stuck in a deep state of grief or sorrow, which no one else understands.
In 2013, I certified in Mindfulness-based Hypnotherapy. I learned a set of tools that can help mothers recover their confidence and joy – quickly and lastingly.
This book takes the reader through the essential steps of this healing process.
The ORIGINAL Book about Milk-Supporting Foods and Herbs
In Mother Food, I aimed to include the entire range of information as far as how diet influences milk supply, digestion, energy, the immune system, and also influences our baby’s development.
I couldn’t imagine offering mothers less than what we actually need to know–that means everything I would have wanted and needed to know as a new mother.
Obviously, today, were I to create a new edition (I might), I would include much additional information. (Some of that information is in the Gardening Book.)
Yet, these many years later, Mother Food continues to be a rare resource and valued reference book. It continues to be recommended by lactation consultants and used by mothers to improve multiple parts of their health and mothering experience.
