A revolutionary postnatal care handbook which shows mothers how to reclaim their health and energy up to ten years after giving birth.

It's all too common to hear new mums talk about 'baby brain' and extreme fatigue. But what if it isn't the physical toll of giving birth, breastfeeding or chasing a toddler that is sapping your strength - what it if is something deeper? The true cause? A syndrome called postnatal depletion.

While postpartum depression has become a recognisable condition, The Postnatal Depletion Cure is the first book to treat the nutrient depletion, sleep loss, and emotional shifts that afflict women up to a decade after giving birth.

Most mothers have experienced exhaustion, 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. But with postnatal care ending after six weeks, most women never learn how to rebuild their strength and care for their bodies after childbirth. As a result, they can suffer from the effects of depletion for many years, without knowing what's wrong or getting the support and treatments that they need.

Any woman who has read What to Expect When You're Expecting needs a copy of The Postnatal Depletion Cure. Filled with trustworthy advice, protocols for successful recovery, and written by a compassionate expert in women's health, THE The Postnatal Depletion Cure will help every mother restore her energy, replenish her body, and reclaim her sense of self.

Dr Oscar Serrallach, MBChB FRACGP, is a leading doctor in the field of maternal care. After training at Auckland Medical School he explored emergency medicine, psychiatry, Aboriginal men's health, addiction, nutritional medicine, herbalism and home birth, before setting up his groundbreaking health clinic near Byron Bay in New South Wales. Since 2010, Oscar has dedicated his work to the condition that he has identified as postnatal depletion. He has been championing the cause ever since, using the latest science in postnatal care, as well as traditional practices, to provide hope and innovative medical advice for mothers who are feeling depleted months or years after childbirth. Oscar's initial studies in this field coincided with starting a family, which led him to consider the science through the particular lens of pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period, observing his own partner and many other mothers through his clinical work. Oscar's firmly held belief is that there is nothing more important than the health and wellbeing of mothers - when mothers are happy, healthy and rested, our families benefit, our communities benefit and society benefits. Oscar lives in Australia with his wife and three children. THE POSTNATAL DEPLETION CURE is his first book.


The world can celebrate in relief and gratitude that this vitally important book has been written. And not just written by anyone, but a medical doctor with an extraordinary brain, an enormous heart and decades of experience in guiding women in their treatment of and recovery from Postnatal Depletion. There is not a woman on the planet - mother or not - who wouldn't benefit from what Oscar has to share. Prepare to be educated, enlightened and supported in your physical and emotional wellbeing, to be able to fully experience the joy and fulfilment of motherhood. - Libby Weaver, PhD, Nutritional Biochemist and author of DR LIBBY'S WELLNESS WISDOM and ACCIDENTALLY OVERWEIGHT? Mums, let's be real: having a baby is hard. It can wreak havoc on your energy, your body, and even your concentration. Women need to practice self-care more than ever before, yet have less time than ever before. With great compassion and creativity, Dr Serrallach proposes an answer - we can make little changes to our sleep habits, our eating habits, the way we talk to our loved ones, and to our expectations for ourselves to protect and fortify ourselves every day. - Dawn Dais, author of THE SH!T NO ONE TELLS YOU: A GUIDE TO SURVIVING YOUR BABY S FIRST YEAR The best programs and solutions for health issues are born of doctors that want to help themselves or their loved ones. That is how Dr Serrall
