I hope you’ve enjoyed ladies month on the podcast this February as much as I have! To round out the topics for the ladies, today will be about understanding female hormones with Dr. Carrie Jones. You guys, this one was so good and there was SO much I learned!
I was really interested in this topic because I know postpartum hormones can be a little wacky. Okay, a lot wacky. Mine definitely felt off this postpartum period as I shared about my postpartum depression I dealt with last year. The biggest take away I had in this conversation actually had to do with my multivitamin.
You see, after Holland was born my prenatal vitamin ran out around 2 months postpartum. I figured since I wasn’t having any more babies, I just kind of thought it was okay for me to not take it anymore. I totally thought it wasn’t a big deal. Well, then I dealt with emotions I had never had in a postpartum period. It was rough.
Eventually I picked up a simple multivitamin to add back in, just to see if it helped. Oh my goodness! It made such a huge impact on my mental well being. Well, then in my conversation with Dr. Jones she talked about the importance of vitamins and minerals and how they all affects your hormones and I was like DUH of course that makes a difference! Now I am religious about taking my multivitamin for my mental and hormonal health.
