Admit it.

You’re frustrated and distracted by your stress and anxiety.

Wouldn’t it be great..

  • If you didn’t have to worry your anxiety would get worse?
  • If you didn’t have to worry, that your children would get this?
  • If you didn’t have anxiety before your period, each and every month?
  • If you could sleep?

Picture this.

Knowing exactly how to soothe your anxiety so you can manage it every day. So you can sleep better and not worry so much.

Let me show you how I’ve overcome anxiety with holistic practices.

Approximately 6% of pregnant women and 10% of postpartum women develop anxiety. Sometimes they experience anxiety alone, and sometimes they experience it in addition to depression.

And… after a certain time, we no longer call it postpartum.  We just say ” you have anxiety”.

Want to get started?

In this post, I’ll share how you can overcome postpartum anxiety with holistic practices; including herbal medicine.

So, what does postpartum anxiety feel like?

Postpartum anxiety feels like a cloud hanging over your head.  There are waves of irritation and you may have a panic attack once in a while, due to this anxiety.

More commonly, moms may say they have …

  • constant worry about their children or others
  • they need to move or work and keep busy to avoid the anxiety
  • they may get sick more often
  • they also have PMS and PMS rage
  • they’re not mentally there and crave to be more present with their family

Why does postpartum anxiety happen?

Postpartum anxiety attacks

There could be many reasons postpartum anxiety happens.  As a women’s herbal educator, I help moms identify why this is happening and how to fix it.

Here are some of the reasons postpartum anxiety happens:
  • Low vitamins; particularly Vitamin D, Vitamin A, Iron, Vitamin B12 & DHA
  • Lack of sleep
  • Inflammation in your gut; specifically gut dysbiosis ² Gut-brain axis
  • Your hormones.  Are you in peri-menopause or have too much estrogen in your diet?
  • Your thyroid is off-hypo or hyperthyroid
  • Your nervous system is overreacting due to stress
  • Your body is not healed postpartum
  • Post-traumatic stress; unresolved anger from past events

5 holistic practices to reduce postpartum anxiety

#1 Identify your triggers

  • When you’re “triggered” you’ll feel an intense overwhelming sensation take over your body.
  • You may sweat, shake, go numb, cry, or feel like you can’t breathe.
  • Sometimes you smell, hear, think, or see something that reminds you of a traumatic event – even if you don’t remember that traumatic event!
  • For example; when I hear ambulance sirens it reminds me of my husband’s death.
  • Your goal when triggered is to calm your nervous system.

#3 Get tested for the MTHFR gene

  • I’m noticing more and more of my clients have one or two of these SNAPs of the MTHFR gene.
  • When you have this, you want to avoid folic acid AND take methylated vitamins.
  • Plus, you’ll want to eat your greens every day.
  • Read the Dirty Genes book by Dr. Lynch for complete details on thriving with this gene.

Plus, have your doctor check:

  • your thyroid levels – it can go from hypo to hyperthyroid in three months!
  • Vitamins D, B6, B12, iron & DHA
  • consider healing your gut with the 4R approach

#5 Writing to release anxiety

What are you going to do with this one life?

  • Have you ever wondered if you have anxiety because you are suppressing something? Something that you want to say something or do?
  • Do you feel like you’re always worried about the future?
  • Writing can help you release anxiety and overcome what is bothering you.
  • 👉Action step: Begin writing.  Write 100 things that you want right now.  Write down 3 places you want to go.  Write down what you want to do for work.  Then write your perfect day out in complete detail.
  • It may seem silly, but when these dreams come true… you feel amazed.


Holistic practices can help soothe your nervous system and stop panic attacks. When you begin soothing your nervous system daily, you’ll notice your panic attacks decrease.
