Holistic Postpartum Planning Guide
I'm Melissa Danielle. As an Integrative Nutrition & Women's Health Coach and Full-Spectrum Doula, I offer tools, support, and guidance to help families have the healthiest and most satisfying birth experience possible.
When we're being honest, the postpartum period is much longer than six weeks.
If you're breastfeeding, healing from surgery, trauma, and/or birth injuries, your postpartum can last for up to two years. In some spaces, postpartum is up to 7 years, as your child assumes more bodily and emotional autonomy.
How you recover during your postpartum period will not only impact your role as a parent, but your intimate relationship and even your transition to menopause.
But the first three months, the fourth trimester, is a critical time, as it lays the foundation for the rest of parenthood. Shaped by your birth experience, the level of support you receive during this time will determine your well-being and overall views on parenting and your relationship with your body and sense of self.
