I would like to talk to you about baseline+ and how it has helped me!

I started taking baseline+ a few weeks after I stopped breastfeeding my second baby.  I could feel that my hormones were out of whack and I was feeling extremely tired. Not as good as I used to feel, that’s for sure!

A lot changes with your hormones when you stop breastfeeding. Your prolactin, which is the milk-maker hormone, starts to decrease naturally. This hormone not only produces milk, but it also produces a feeling of calmness and well-being. When it lowers you can see how that can throw off the way you feel! 

Weaning effects on mothers include mild to severe depression. This is associated with hormonal changes in the body when the infant stops suckling, or milk is no longer being expressed. Prolactin, the hormone responsible for lactation, can also create a feeling of calmness and joy for the mother. With the reduction in prolactin levels, the mother may begin feeling sad, and she may associate this sadness with the end of the bond between her and her baby. 

Along with the change in Prolactin, progesterone and estrogen levels in the mother’s body try to rebalance after weaning, and this causes extreme tiredness and fatigue.

This is why I was feeling so tired all day. I began researching what I could do and what I could take to help me feel better again.  

That was when I discovered Baseline+ and it has been a game changer!!! Baseline+ was perfect and I loved that it was specifically designed to support healthy female hormone levels. Other benefits of Baseline+ include weight management, healthy complexion, increased energy and focus, reduced bloating and improved mood. An all around amazing supplement for balancing hormones postpartum!
