The postnatal depletion cure book review

I actually read this book not long after having my son. It was recommended to me by a friend. She too had read the book. It reminded me of so many things that mums think aren't normal but are. I remember I had times in the first couple of weeks of being a mother where I thought I was going crazy. I was so sleep deprived. This book answered such a wide range of questions. It explains the difference in postnatal depression and postnatal depletion and how both can affect you and the signs. What I can do to ensure I am looking after myself as well as my child. Different therapies, recipes, how to handle your emotions and what I should be looking for. I like its natural therapies. As I have always been into using more natural avenues. Who can look after a child if they are not healthy physically and mentally themselves?


The book made me realize it was ok to also focus on my needs as well as my childs. It's ok to take a shower, to make sure I eat, to make sure I'm having water. I was still me. Just a different version. I was reborn alongside my child. Although my whole world now revolved around my baby. Which I loved so much. It was a good feeling to know someone understood my feelings and explain what was happening to me post birth. From being sleep deprived, to hormone levels.


My son is one and I still struggle with motivation and being sleep deprived. I use to find myself getting frustrated some days with my son and think there was something wrong with me. Why do I feel this way? I knew I loved my child so much but I still at times would feel frustration when he would winge all day or wouldn't sleep. I was exhausted. Mentally, physically, emotionally. Something I wish I learned to do was ask for help. Which is something I am still learning to do.


This book will be highly recommended to my clients, pregnant or postpartum. It's so important to know that you are not alone in this. It's ok to ask for help. It's ok to be exhausted. It's ok to focus on you and your baby rather than the piles of washing. It's ok to need a time out. It's ok. This too shall pass. I hope I can support mothers through this time. This book will be of huge benefit to all mothers.


“Having a baby is one of the greatest joys a woman can experience. Making a new life is miraculous, life changing, and monumental. Seeing your baby's face for the first time is a wonderfully loving moment like no other. Yet this magical life changing event can also create a perfect storm to destabilize a woman's psyche”.


How amazing are mothers. We truly are. We got this. We stand together. We matter.
