I can’t believe I actually get to say it: “Welcome to Vital Mamas!” The inspiration for Vital Mamas came in June 2015 with the birth of my second child, Stellan. My personal and professional journeys prepared me for balanced, robust health with Stellan in a way I didn’t experience with my daughter Linnaea four years before. I decided it was time to dedicate myself to mamas like me–driven women with big goals, burning to make our marks in the world.
And now Vital Mamas is here to help working moms suffering from exhaustion and adrenal fatigue regain their health and vitality so they have energy to pursue their passions.
I am grateful and humbled that you are here to check us out.
I’m a mama and a doctor of natural medicine. I’m passionate about health and whole-body wellness: they define my career and my personal lifestyle. If you’re like me, you love having the best of both worlds: a career and children. Even though we get to “have it all,” the stress of modern life often has a steep cost on our health. Many women are so overtaxed that they wind up developing a collection of symptoms such as exhaustion, brain fog, chronic infections, low libido, and mild mood disorders that are classic markers of adrenal fatigue.
I understand adrenal fatigue because I’ve recovered from it, and I’ve created Vital Mamas to help other women recover, too.
It’s hard to imagine that we deserve better for ourselves and our bodies, but we do! The fatigue, exhaustion, and other symptoms of adrenal fatigue do not have to be a normal part of motherhood.
That is why I created Vital Mamas.
When I think about the potential for Vital Mamas–the power behind a community of mamas motivated by the freedom that health and vitality provide–I get shivers!
Now THAT is a force to be reckoned with.
Happy Mother’s Day!
