Welcome to my messy, joyful, and perfectly imperfect version of motherhood. I’m a nutritional therapy practitioner and certified pre & postnatal coach. I’m here to help you move through motherhood with ease!
Welcome to the Beyond the Birth Podcast. Co-hosted each week by Liz Winters ( Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, certified pre and post-natal coach, and mama) and Jenny Anderson (doula, Birthfit Regional Director, certified yoga instructor, and mama). Our hope is to inspire, educate, and empower women as they navigate pregnancy, postpartum, and parenthood with evidence based guidance, informative interviews, and entertaining anecdotes from our perspectives as moms, entrepreneurs, and birth professionals.
Today we are reviewing our first Beyond Birth Book Club selection: Period Repair Manual by Dr. Lara Briden. Per Lara:“Period Repair Manual is every woman’s guide to better periods using natural treatments such as diet, nutritional supplements, herbal medicine, and body-identical hormones. It contains advice and tips for every age and situation.”
This fantastic book can be used for anyone as an information resource for personal use and/or client support, trouble-shooting specific period issues, and understanding the hormones behind a menstrual cycle (which is so fascinating and wonderfully laid out). The book is full of information about the benefits and risks of the various forms of birth control. It also provides a section with questions to ask your healthcare provider that is pure GOLD. This is all part of the period revolution.
“Wherever your progesterone is at, you probably want more of it.” – Lara Briden
