Nutrition for postpartum first 6 weeks after birth

Prevent postnatal exhaustion

You gave away your essential micronutrients to a growing baby when you were pregnant. You would need to restore and reproduce them for positive energy and healthy breastfeeding: Omega 3, vitamins of group B, Iron and Zinc, and Calcium.

Heal your body

After vaginal or C-section birth, your tissues heal naturally, support this process with collagen-rich proteins: lean meat, fish, tofu and pulses.

Protect your mental health

Inflammation is a most frequent root cause of postpartum anxiety. Include anti-inflammatory foods in your diet: colourful vegetables, fatty fish, whole grains and probiotics-rich fermented foods.
