Episode 17: Helping Moms Balance Hormones and Take Care of Themselves Holistically, with Dr. Angela Potter

In this week’s Episode 17 of the Confessions of a Working Mom Podcast, I am talking to Dr. Angela Potter.

Dr. Angela Potter is a mother of two babies and a functional medicine naturopathic doctor who specializes in the care and support of postpartum mothers. She helps pregnant women create postpartum healing plans and helps women heal optimally after birth.

Dr. Potter has worked in the healthcare field for over a decade. She is a nutritionist, herbalist and doctor using these unique and powerful therapies to help her patients find vibrant health.

In this episode we dive into all topics related to postpartum care for mothers, including physical, mental, emotional support and treating women’s hormones post-birth.

I know that after I had my daughter in 2015, there were a lot changes I experienced in my body, and no-one had necessarily tuned me into how some of these changes were “normal” for post-partum or ways in which I could treat them naturally.

This information is so great not only for new mamas, but those of us that still deal with severe mood swings, hormonal imbalances and other concerns that we may not know how we can start to heal in a way that supports our bodies holistically.

If you are ready to learn about ways in which you can start to better care for your body as a woman and mama post-partum, then listen in to this episode with Dr. Angela Potter!

Dr. Potter is a leading holistic doctor supporitng mothers in their healing process after birth. After the birth of her first baby she came face-to-face with the hardships mothers frequently experience after giving birth. She was amazed at how much pressure is put on mothers and how little support is given for whole-body wellness in this very unique time in a woman’s life. From there she developed her Postpartum Wellness Protocol that she uses with mothers nationally.

Dr. Potter has been interviewed for Healthline.com for postpartum-specific articles. She is a nutritionist as well as a doctor. Her office is located in Portland, Oregon, where she lives with her husband and two toddlers.

I had a dream after my daughter was born (she just turned 5!) to create a life and career that I love, while being present for my family.

I didn’t think that as working moms we should have to choose between having a career we love and an engaged and present family life.

The Working Mom Collective Blog was created out of my dream, and now I’ve taken it a step further and put the Confessions of a Working Mom Podcast out into the world!

My mission has become to help other working moms pursue their dreams, whatever they may look like (I’m not judging – You have to do what makes YOU happy mama!)

If I can reach just one other mama and show her there is a better way to pursue your career goals while raising your family, then I will consider myself successful.

Now let’s tackle this sometimes hectic, but AMAZING journey of working motherhood together!


RocketBook Smart Reusable Notebook – Organize all of your Goals for 2021!

I discovered the RocketBook Smart Reusable Notebook this year, after realizing I have a severe addiction to notebooks. I mean, I have notebooks of every shape, color and size lying around my house. The RocketBook smart erasable notebook solves a few problems: clutter and organization. I just write my notes in the notebook, scan them into the RocketBook app on my iPhone, then send them directly to my Google Drive, Email or Trello Board. My notes are then all in one place! Amazon has the RocketBook smart reusable notebook on special today for $27.66, down from $34.00. This is a great deal!

Also check out their Panda Planner version – That’s next on my list to try out! It’s just like the Panda Planner but erasable, so you can upload your planning notes straight to the cloud, organize then erase and start over again the next week.

Find both links below to purchase on Amazon. I do receive a small affiliate commission for these products, but I have personally used and love these smart notebooks from RocketBook, and I know you will too!
