Episode 146: Food, Body, and Mental Health in Pregnancy, Postpartum, and Breastfeeding

Kathryn talks to Nicole Longmire, MPH, MEd, IBCLC about some of the eating and body-image issues that come up surrounding pregnancy and the birth of a child, as well as during breastfeeding. You’ll learn strategies for managing mental and emotional challenges during the postpartum period and receive guidance on factors like appetite fluctuations, extreme schedule changes, and dietary needs during lactation.

Even if the topics don’t apply directly to you, there are so many lessons to be learned from this particular phase of life that can also apply to other life challenges. As you listen, you can think about any time in your life that brings increased physical, mental, and emotional demands.
