Your guide to eating well after pregnancy
Congratulations on your new baby!
Delivering a baby, either naturally or by c-section, is hard on your body. You require extra calories and nutrients for proper healing and recovery, as well as for breastmilk production. Proper postpartum nutrition is key for both Mom and baby, yet many moms focus so much on their babies, it’s easy to neglect their own health and nutrition. This handout outlines key recommendations and strategies on how to eat well for recovery after giving birth.
This handout includes:
- Nutrition for healing
- Additional considerations on nutrition for breastfeeding
- Key nutrients to consider for healing and breastfeeding
- Drinks to limit
