This week’s guest, Dr. Jolene Brighten, is the doctor who talks about the things no one is comfortable talking about! She is the author of the bestselling book, Healing Your Body Naturally After Childbirth— The New Mom’s Guide to Navigating the Fourth Trimester.

She is a strong advocate for the Hashimoto’s community, with special emphasis in fertility, pregnancy, and postpartum thyroiditis. Dr, Brighten is launching a new program aimed to support fertility and healthy pregnancies for the Hashimoto’s community.
