APRIL

Old mums, new mums, lost mums, tired mums, grieving mums, TTC mums, pre-natal mums and post-natal mums, busy mums, stressed mums. I have seen them all in my clinic and for such a variety of reasons. In Chinese medicine, the first 42 days after giving birth, however that looks, is when you are closest to death and you’re looked after and nourished by the village around you. Up until recently in the Western world Aunts, Sisters, cousins would be cooking, cleaning, watching the kids, doing the laundry while you recovered.


We live in a society that doesn’t allow for this experience anymore. We do not all live in the same street as our family as we once did, many women haven’t got a village around them. We are now expected to be up and back to being the CEO of the house and family within a matter of hours. It is not normal and it is not heathy. It is not a way to lay down the foundations for a healthy, physically and emotionally motherhood journey. If the fundamental needs of the first 42 days are not met then, you can bet they’ll come back at some point. If you don’t make time for your wellness you’ll be forced to make time for illness.



In the Western world we underestimate how much becoming/ being a mum takes it out of you. The energy, your sleep, the changes in your body and mind, the stress. It is crucial that you look after your health first as you’ll be able to do a much better job when you’re firing on all cylinders, after all Health is Wealth.
