What nutrients and foods does my body need to restore after childbirth?
Rich nutrients like Iron, Calcium, Vitamin B, Proteins, Omega 3's and Fatty acids like Lauric acid are passed to the baby through the breastmilk which makes the baby stronger, while at the same time depleting the mothers body. This makes you often feel more tired and in some extreme cases has been linked to depression. Having a balanced nutrients-dense diet helps prevent ‘baby blues’ and postpartum depression. Eating fibre rich foods also helps ease constipation, a common side effect after birth.
