In the episode today we are talking about approaching postpartum from a natural and holistic perspective. Dr. Christy Matusiak is a holistically-driven chiropractic physician practicing in Wilmette, IL. She is writing a book, to be published by July 2021. This is for the newly postpartum mother, struggling with finding herself and gaining the mental clarity to be present for her growing family.

In this episode we discuss:

The seven best “doctors” you can implement today to support your health:

  • Sunlight

Make a “Wellness Toolbox”

  • Write down a list of things that you enjoy doing or that bring you joy
  • Divide this list by time and by things that you can do by yourself or with others

  • "Normal" vs "Common"
  • PMS, PPD, Anxiety...etc.
  • Placenta encapsulation
