Balancing hormones after pregnancy consists mainly of a healthy diet, supplemented with some herbs to help regulate hormone production for breastfeeding, healing and recovering after being pregnant. Luckily, many foods have beneficial effects on balancing postpartum hormones, and I am going to go over them here because I believe in nutrient-dense foods. I created The Postpartum Cure as a program to help guide mamas into healing postpartum through food and patience. Many mamas end up craving sugar while breastfeeding, and find themselves dealing with cravings at certain times of the month.

I’ve been able to prevent stretchmarks during three pregnancies so far. Preventing stretch marks during pregnancy takes some special attention and care for yourself, so your skin can slowly stretch as baby grows. I am going to give a full run down on caring for your belly, so you can hopefully prevent as many stretch marks as possible during your pregnancy. Why do we get stretchmarks during pregnancy? Stretchmarks happen during pregnancy because our skin is forced to stretch too far too fast. Because this happens in a way that is difficult for the skin to adjust too, scars form. Basically the skin stretches so much, it can’t repair itself in the process, and a scar forms. The collagen and fibers in the skin tear as it stretches, which is what leaves a mark that you can see. During pregnancy, you are gaining weight and your body is getting bigger.…
