Postnatal depletion – do you have it?

Most of us are familiar with postnatal depression, even if we are lucky enough never to experience it for ourselves. But there is another condition that is very prevalent among mothers of young children, and can be almost as debilitating over the longer term – postnatal depletion.

Postnatal depletion is a syndrome with physical and mental symptoms, brought on by the stresses of modern parenthood, with symptoms including deep fatigue and hypervigilance.

This feeling over being constantly overwhelmed can take a toll on our physical and mental wellbeing, including long-term effects on immune function and gut health. As we know, gut issues can lead to a variety of further health issues.

Our injectable nutrient clinic supports patients with a variety of health conditions. Click here to learn more.
