Apr 7 2023 • 32 mins

My guest is Carolyn LaPan, a Masters level psychologist and Certified Functional Nutrition & Lifestyle Practitioner. Carolyn and I connected in our local Holistic Networking Group and have been collaborating on ways to combine forces in support of women’s health. She is passionate about gut health, hormone health, and longevity, as well as eating for the seasons, with whole food, plant-based recipes. Carolyn has contributed her expertise to Breastfeeding Bootcamp and runs her own individual and group coaching programs @satori_cl.

In this episode, we cover a lot! Some topics include:

  • Tongue tie
  • Strategies for fitting in restorative rest when caring for a newborn
  • How to think about nutrition when breastfeeding
  • Importance of movement postpartum
  • Importance of mental health postpartum
  • Difference between carbs that spike blood sugar and those that provide longer-lasting energy
