#126: Postpartum Depletion and Replenishing with Kim Perez

September 22, 2022



Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast! 


We’ve discussed nutrition on the podcast before, but one aspect of the conversation we’ve not explored is the subject of depletion.


Vitamin and mineral depletion is a very crucial piece to understanding our body’s needs, and unfortunately, in the hustle and bustle of bringing a baby into the world, is often overlooked. 


Helping us understand nutrient depletion is my guest, Kim Perez, a Functional Nutritionist who guides and supports women through the transition into motherhood and beyond. 


In this episode, she shares her personal journey that led to her passion for helping women in motherhood, we discuss the depletion problem most women face during pregnancy, the best foods to consume postpartum, and so much more!


 Some big takeaways are:

  1. Most women enter pregnancy already depleted of the proper nutrients.
  2. Each pregnancy takes about 10% of the body’s minerals.
  3. Respect that your body needs certain things and allow it to freely communicate. 


Improving your nutrition is a commitment best attained through intentional planning. Like most things in motherhood, if it’s not planned out, it probably won’t happen. This is why I encourage all moms to plan for their postpartum experience!
