Nourishing You and your Baby

Congratulations on the arrival of your bundle of joy!

As a new mum, it's important to prioritize your nutrition to support your postpartum recovery and provide optimal nourishment for both you and your baby. No matter how you gave birth, the first six weeks postpartum are considered a “recovery” period as your body and your hormones adjust again. Proper nutrition plays a crucial role in supporting your healing and recovery, energy levels, and overall health during this transformative phase. A nutrient-dense eating pattern full of smart carbs, colour, fibre, healthy fats and lean protein, plus adequate hydration, can speed your recovery post birth.

The Postpartum Recovery Period: Nurturing Yourself

The postpartum phase is a time of both joy and adjustment as you recover from childbirth and adjust to the new responsibilities of motherhood.
We understand that this is a time when you will be finding your new normal. We will give you simple steps and support for coping, planning and preparing quick and easy nutritious meals and snacks to help lay the foundation for nourishing the whole family.

Meeting Nutritional Needs for Postpartum Recovery

The demands on your body are high during this time, especially if you are breastfeeding. Ensuring adequate intake of key nutrients like iron, protein, calcium, and vitamins is crucial for your postpartum healing and overall well-being, as well as supporting breastmilk supply.

Supporting Mental Health

The postpartum period can also be emotionally challenging. It’s no wonder that 1 in 10 pregnant women and 1 in 7 mums experience some form of depression and anxiety. Nourishing your body and supporting your gut health with wholesome foods can positively impact your mood and mental health.

Managing Postpartum Weight

Your body is an amazing thing. It can take 6-12 months to return to pre-pregnancy weight and the focus should be on your health, and NOT your weight.

Nutrient needs will differ once you have had your baby. Understanding your unique situation, your goals for feeding your baby and returning to a healthy post-pregnancy weight will allow us to provide personalized nutrition support through food and nutrient supplements to ensure recovery and prevention of complications such as postpartum depression.

We can assist you in managing postpartum weight in a healthy and sustainable way, considering the unique requirements of the postpartum phase and breastfeeding.
