As you are growing your baby, your own health needs to be nourished so your postpartum recovery can be as smooth as possible. Often mamas focus solely on preparing for the birth during pregnancy (reasonably so!), but the postpartum time lasts far longer than birth and you will need lots of resources and support for a smooth recovery.
Adjunctive prenatal care
You are seeing your midwife or OBGyn for your prenatal care, but you still have more questions. Dr. Potter will help you navigate pregnancy and help with common symptoms like:
- Leg cramps
- Mood swings
- Learning what herbs and supplements are okay in pregnancy
- Cold and flu
Mama-thrive postpartum prep
This is one of the most important things you can do for yourself while being pregnant. So often mamas plan for the birth and put aside their plans for postpartum.
Stepping in to motherhood is the most profound transition in your life and should be taken with lots of nurturing and support.
Work with Dr. Potter to set up a postpartum sanctuary plan so when the time comes, you will be ready to rest and recuperate with your baby.
