Most mothers have experienced pain, forgetfulness, indecision, low energy levels, moodiness, or some form of baby brain. And it’s no wonder: The process of growing a baby depletes a mother’s body in substantial ways–on average, a mother’s brain shrinks 5% during pregnancy, and the placenta saps her of essential nutrients that she needs to be healthy and contented.

As a result, they can suffer from the effects of depletion for many years, without knowing what’s wrong as well as getting the support and treatments that they need. –Amazon
