Mom Health and Postnatal Depletion - Mindful Moms Movement Podcast EP006

Hi Friends, 

On today's episode, I have the pleasure of talking to my good friend and health coach, Harper Guerra about just one area she speaks about with Moms, which is the challenge of postnatal depletion. This issue is one that affects many of us who have had children much deeper and for a much longer time than we may think and can be an area of health that, if addressed, can create a significant and positive ripple effect in all other areas of our life.

About Harper:

Harper’s health journey originates from a time early in her marriage when she was the boxed pasta master chef. (not a good thing!) Since then she’s grown from unhealthy to healthy and for over the last decade has been empowering and equipping women, moms in particular, to do the same so they can show up strong, healthy and with clarity to their callings in life. Whether working with a person one-on-one or speaking to a crowd of thousands, Harper has been able to multiply the change she loves to see in the world by coaching others to build health based businesses and integrating that passion to create an impactful business into her priority of being a wife and mom. She partners with a 63 year old company named Shaklee to provide health resources that she can be confident to recommend to meet the needs of anyone at any point in their health journey. Harper has become well-respected in her field as she has been educated by nutritionists, naturopaths, medical professors, chiropractors and more. She and her husband Ryan live in Chicago with their three children and work together to continue to build a life that is integrated as best as it can be between their faith, family and business. It’s a journey not a destination! They love to spend time being active in their communities and the gym, the places they find give them life and energy.
 

Today Harper will share with us just one area she speaks about with women in particular, which is the challenge of postnatal depletion. This issue is one that effects any of us who have had children much deeper and for a much longer time than we may think and can be an area of health that, if addressed, can create a significant and positive ripple effect in all other areas of our life.

Some of the key nutrients in which women experience postnatal depletion:
  • Omega 3/DHA: Key for mental health from anxiety to “baby fog” as well as key for baby’s brain development while nursing. Side benefits: better skin, healthier eyes, healthier hair, healthier heart (blood pressure/cholesterol)
  • Calcium/Magnesium: Helps with quality of sleep, leg cramps, and long-term helps to prevent osteoporosis.
These next four are also the key nutrients women need for energy:
  • Iron: Key for energy
  • B Vitamins: Crucial energy, mood, focus, stress—also helps hair re-growth, nerves, anxiety, and more.
  • Vitamin D: Crucial not only for energy, but mood, immunity & long-term health
  • Protein: Critical for our brain cells to function and also for healthy weight loss
  • Surprised by these four? Listen to the podcast!
