Inspired by one of the most viewed GOOP articles ever, this groundbreaking book explores a never-before-named syndrome - 'postnatal depletion' - and offers ad easy-to-follow program for mothers to reclaim their health and energy after giving birth.
It's all too common to hear new mums talk about 'baby brain' and extreme fatigue. But what if the physical toll of giving birth, breastfeeding or chasing a toddler that was sapping your strength? What if it was something deeper?
Dr Oscar Serrallach has spent his medical career witnessing women fail hormonally, nutritionally and emotionally to get back on their feet after having a baby. The true cause? A syndrome he calls Postnatal Depletion.
THE POSTNATAL DEPLETION CURE is the first book to name the syndrome and offer a practical program to help mothers replenish their bodies after having a baby. The book includes a comprehensive guide to the nutrients women need to enhance organ function and balance hormones, along with advice on how to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine and get necessary rest, despite the demands of motherhood. Filled with practical takeaways and many success stories, THE POSTNATAL DEPLETION CURE will help mothers to be the best they can be physically and emotionally.

When Dr. Serrallach first wrote about postnatal depletion on goop, he hit a nerve - particularly with the revelation that some women in his practice experience the after-effects of having a child for seven to ten years later. It shouldn't be this way, nor does it have to be: this is the comprehensive guide to women's health for every mother - new, or years out - who has ever felt tired, rundown, or just not like herself. With great empathy and wisdom, Dr. Serrallach explains how to restore your health and vitality using nutrition, gentle exercises, and simple strategies to get you to finally feel like yourself again. - Gwyneth Paltrow
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 practise 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 who want to help themselves or their loved ones. That is how Dr. Serrallach arrived at his understanding of postnatal depletion, and what makes this book so helpful to women with the same issue, which is a world epidemic. His book is a guide to reclaiming optimal health that any mother who has given birth in the last seven years should read. - Alejandro Junger, M.D., New York Times bestselling author of CLEAN, CLEAN EATS, and CLEAN GUT and founder of the acclaimed Clean Program
Dr Oscar Serrallach, MBChB FRACGP, is a dedicated practitioner 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 and integrative medicine, to provide hope and innovative 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 well-being 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. Visit oscarserrallach.com
