Postpartum University® Podcast

This episode is a sneak peek into the Gut-Brain Axis training available inside the Pro Membership of Postpartum University.
Why are we having this conversation?
Maternal health care, infant health care, fetal health care are greatly impacted by the gut-brain axis and understanding this critical relationship allows us to provide effective and comprehensive care for mother and newborn, especially when symptoms of imbalance, such as depression and anxiety are present.

In this episode, we'll explore:
The significance of inflammation in the body, specifically within the gut, and how it's a precursor to depression and anxiety.
The role of the metabolism and how it impacts energy levels, insulin sensitivity, and nervous system regulation.
Why the gut is considered in the scientific community to be the second brain and the role toxins play in the dysregulation of the gut-brain axis and the nervous system.

We are really getting into the science and anatomy here that needs to be understood to get to the ROOT CAUSE of mood disorders and so much more!
Though it's just the tip of the iceberg, this information will really prepare you for the conversations and education that need to happen with new moms in supporting what's happening physiologically and psychologically in pregnancy and postpartum.
