The misconceptions around postpartum nutrition run deep.
The sad reality is that research has failed to consider the unique needs of the postpartum woman. As a result, you are given information that has failed you.
In today’s episode, I’m covering 5 of the top misconceptions around postpartum nutrition, and how you can get on a better path to whole body healing.
Whether you are in the postpartum period yourself or you are serving women who are - you cannot afford to miss this.
