We discuss a fascinating theory about why preconception/prenatal health is so important, the best superfoods, supplements, and nutrients before and during pregnancy, the benefits of baby-led weaning versus pureed foods, the controversy regarding introducing allergenic foods early to avoid allergies later in life, and why self-care is so important for moms!

From the baby blues to postpartum psychosis, Gail helps us all understand what postpartum mood and anxiety disorders are, signs/symptoms to look out for, how friends/families can best help new moms, why these conditions are so under-diagnosed and under-treated, treatment options (including those suitable for breastfeeding women), and a ton of valuable resources!
