Crystal Karges, MS, RDN, IBCLC is sharing her personal story of dealing with postpartum depression after three of her five children. She then went on to use her professional skills to help and support other moms find balance with nutrition and breastfeeding.
Crystal touches on many aspects of her experience that so many moms can relate to:
-a past eating disorder of anorexia and worry that she wouldn't be able to get pregnant due to that history
-feeling disconnected from her children because of postpartum depression
-dealing with the pressure to be happy because she was able to have children
-breastfeeding difficulties, feeling the pressure to breastfeed and having the support of a lactation consultant
Crystal shares how her experiences shaped her work and passion to help mothers nourish themselves and nourish their new babies.
