What is Postnatal Depletion?

An increasing number of women are having children later in life.  As a result, mothers may experience a higher rate of physical consequences such as lethargy, memory disturbances and poor energy levels.  This is a condition our resident GP, Dr Oscar Serrallach has coined "Postnatal Depletion". 

Recovery depends upon holistically addressing and attending to a mother's biology, psychology and life-purpose.  Dr Oscar's groundbreaking book for women "The Postnatal Depletion Cure" outlines a program that has been developed based on his observations and support to dozens of women with Postnatal Depletion.

Dr Oscar has developed a screening and treatment protocol that addresses the requirements of fourth trimester healing, which can be applied up to a decade after childbirth.  The treatment process utilises functional medicine, taking into consideration the multi-faced nature of a mother's health, environment and lifestyle and addressing needs on the physical, psychological, emotional, social and spiritual level.

Postnatal Depletion can be potentially devastating for relationships and for families if not addressed.  Using an integrated medical approach, Dr Oscar works exclusively with the Naturopathic and GP teams at The Health Lodge to provide personalised treatment plans for patients experiencing postnatal depletion.
