The Postpartum Shift

Postpartum doesn’t have to suck. Here’s why... If you’re here, you likely face similar frustrations as my students – frustration with your pre-baby clothes not fitting, chronic exhaustion, mood swings, brain fog, hair loss or seeing your body in the mirror that looks completely different... Maybe you don’t have the time or energy to nourish your body well. Or maybe you’ve tried several diets, counting calories or points, fasting, low carb... or maybe you were told ”just breastfeed & the weight will fly right off” but you’re still stuck wondering ”Why isn’t this working for me? What am I doing wrong?” It’s not that you’re not lazy or don’t have willpower. It’s just that you haven’t tried the right strategy yet. You need a customized nutrition program designed specifically for postpartum & breastfeeding moms so you can regulate hormones & reset your metabolism to boost energy, mood, milk supply, & maintain your healthiest weight long term. And no, you don’t have to count calories, spend hours in the kitchen, thousands at the grocery store or sacrifice your favorite foods or milk supply in the process to get results. Brooke Miller, RD, CLC is a Registered Dietitian and Certified Lactation Counselor who has helped hundreds of moms from all over the world boost energy, mood, metabolism and feel more confident in their bodies. Brooke’s mission is to help moms go from surviving to thriving postpartum. With some sarcasm, humor and guest experts along the way, you’ll feel prepared for & can have an enjoyable postpartum experience!
