It is no surprise that carrying a baby to term, giving birth and the early natal requirements of a baby are taxing on the mother. Not only is it physically and nutritionally challenging, but the process from conception right through to the postnatal period is also a time of substantial hormonal variations. Some women are able to cope well with these demands but for some, it is extremely difficult and depleting.

For those who do not fare well, they can experience many and sometimes severe postnatal depletion symptoms. This may manifest as crushing fatigue, mood changes, memory and cognitive difficulties, fat gain, bone loss, libido loss, and many other frustrating symptoms that may even extend through their lives to a turbulent menopause.

Dr Oscar Serrallach is a GP that has specialised in supporting women through this most demanding part of their lives. He is presenting this fascinating three-part, webinar series on Postnatal Depletion Syndrome. This has been the focus of Oscar’s clinical practice for several years and is also the topic of his recent book on the subject.

Oscar looks at the specific metabolic and hormonal challenges that mothers face throughout their pregnancies and beyond. He discusses in-depth how these factors affect a women’s physiology and also give you a solid understanding of how to create a prevention and a care plan for your patients that are to become pregnant, are pregnant, or who have become depleted from their previous pregnancies.

Dr Oscar Serrallach MBChB, FRACGP graduated with a medical degree (MBChB) from the Auckland School of Medicine, New Zealand in 1996. He received his fellowship of Family Medicine and General Practice in 2008.

Dr Serrallach is well-known in the field of postnatal health. Through a personal family experience and the lens of functional medicine, he came to realise the huge impact that nutrition, lifestyle and the environment have on the postnatal period. Dr Serrallach has spent the past eight years devoted to the identification and treatment of postnatal depletion.

“I so deeply believe that mothers are the fabric of our society – a healthy society needs healthy families, and healthy families rely on healthy mothers. And yet I see so many women at my clinic who are chronically depleted, and only come to see me after years of being this way, at the point of desperation.”

Dr Serrallach has developed a process that addresses the requirements of fourth-trimester healing and provides personalised treatment plans for patients experiencing postnatal depletion.

“I have seen mothers not only return to a vibrant state of health but also transformed and enlightened by the journey.  It is my wish that Mothers be fully supported in their physical and emotional wellbeing to fully experience the joy and fulfilment of motherhood once more.”
