The MotherCare Project is the culmination of more than a decade’s work by Dr Oscar Serrallach, Author of The Postnatal Depletion Cure, published by Goop in 2018. 

 

What is postnatal depletion?

Postnatal depletion is a constellation of symptoms affecting all spheres of a woman’s life after she gives birth. These symptoms arise from changes in the way the brain works, physiological challenges, hormonal changes and interruption of the circadian day/night rhythm of her sleep cycle, layered with psychological, mental and emotional components.

It was during Dr Oscar’s own journey of starting a family with his partner Caroline - looking at Motherhood through the lens of Functional Medicine to try to understand why his own partner and so many of his patients were struggling with Motherhood - that he started to see a pattern emerge.  
After coining the phrase “Postnatal Depletion”  Oscar went on to write his groundbreaking book The Postnatal Depletion Cure which has now sold over 30,000 copies. This book has indeed helped thousands of Mothers to get back on track after having children.

'This is the comprehensive guide to health for every mother - new, or years out - who has ever felt tired, rundown, or just not like herself.'- Gwyneth Paltrow

'The Postnatal Depletion Cure is a groundbreaking perspective on women's health, which offers hope and practical information in equal measure for mothers who are beyond exhausted... I would recommend Dr Serrallach's book to all mothers.' - Penelope Cruz

Why am I Failing at Motherhood?

 

“In my clinic, I do not see Mothers who have failed or who are not trying hard enough. What I do see every day are Mothers who are physically and emotionally depleted, exhausted and stressed. They are at the end of their tether with no end in sight.”

Dr Oscar Serrallach

 

Through countless medical consultations with Mothers over many years, Dr Oscar has seen that fundamentally, there are a number of external factors which also contribute to a Mother’s struggles:

  • The lack of a “village” and genuine unconditional support.
  • The glorification of busyness.
  • The Myth of the Super Mum.
  • The lack of understanding about Matrescence (the becoming of a Mother) and Rites of Passage for this important transition in life.
  • The lack of understanding by medical professionals about the unique biology of Mothers.
  • The prevalence of capitalistic societies that are not set up to support families.
  • Mothers being alone at a time when they are meant to be most connected.

We are here to help...

Dr Oscar and partner Caroline Cowley are passionate about making real change happen. Having three children together they experienced years of struggle through the breakdown of health, lack of sleep, work pressures, the emergence of underlying health issues brought on by pregnancy and breastfeeding and lack of support.

Oscar and Caroline now dedicate their lives to speaking about Postnatal Depletion with the genuine desire to help others going through a similar journey.

Mothermorphosis - A Ten Moons Journey of Healing and Transformation for Mothers.  Starts 26 September 2022

 

It’s an exciting time as we launch our first online program - the Mothermorphosis Journey, created for Mothers seeking better health and improved energy.  Over 9  months (10 Moons), this program will walk our participants step by step on their own journey of postnatal recovery, looking at physiology, sleep, nutrition, exercise, relationships, spirituality, self-care and life goals. 

“Just as a caterpillar transforms into a butterfly, we hope to support you in your transformation from depletion into an empowered and thriving mother living her life fully aligned with her purpose. But as it takes time to enter a state of depletion, it takes time to recover - hence the 10 moons.” 

This program will be guided personally by Dr Oscar and Caroline. Spaces will be limited for this first program offered at an introductory price. 

 

Enrolments now open for Mothermorphosis.

His book is a guide to reclaiming optimal health that any mother who has given birth in the last seven years should read.
