RELEASED NOV 17, 2021
Dr. Lisa, Postdoctoral Research Fellow and owner of @playnourishthrive openly shares the ins and outs of her challenging first pregnancy to postpartum journey including her postpartum depression diagnosis. Like a true researcher, Dr.Lisa learnt as much as she could during and from this experience, which for her included the importance of the fourth trimester as a concept – and spurred her further research into “the perfect mother myth”.
Dr. Lisa’s top tips for doing Postpartum like a boss include:
- Strongly consider a postpartum planning session
- Take maternity leave earlier than you think you need to if you can
- Know the fourth trimester is important – prioritise learning about it to enable you to set realistic expectations.
