PCOS is NOT just a period problem. PCOS is a metabolic condition leading to increased risk of diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease later in life. When we diagnose PCOS, give birth control and forget about the rest, we are missing YEARS where diet, lifestyle and proper supplementation could have been extremely impactful in preventing this.

Okay, so you just had a baby and you are feeling worn out, sleep deprived, and maybe even overwhelmed. Becoming a #mom is HARD, whether you are a first time mom or a mom of three, each #pregnancy, #labour, #delivery (& child) comes with its unique challenges. All too often I see new moms come into my practice. They are tired, they have #hair falling out, they feel overwhelmed on the best of days and they don’t remember the last time they had ten minutes completely to themselves.
