The first 42 days of postpartum can shape the next 42 years.
A key Ayurvedic principle.
All postpartum mothers/birth persons need extra support to fully heal from giving birth and preventing any issues from arising months to years later. Nutrition and lifestyle choices have a significant impact on recovery and establishing a healthy milk supply. I support all birth givers regardless if they are breastfeeding or not.
Post birth, you may be left feeling depleted and overwhelmed. This feeling may come on anytime in the first few years after giving birth. If you had complications during your pregnancy or if you had a complicated birth, your nutrient reserves might be further depleted.
Symptoms of nutrient deficiencies include excessive fatigue, mood swings, anxiety, depression, brain fog, unexplained aches and pains, skin issues, hair loss, and gut health issues. Women typically experience hypothyroidism six months after the birth of their first child and three months after the birth of their subsequent children. It is never too late to seek support to restore your sense of self, well-being and vitality.
If you are having trouble keeping your milk supply up, nutrition and lifestyle factors have a big impact on your milk supply. If you are concerned about your supply or simply want to increase your supply, adjustments in your diet and lifestyle can greatly help.
Babies observe everything we do- from the tone of our voice to what we put into our mouths. We influence our baby’s preferences and tastes by what we consume during pregnancy, by what we consume while nursing, and by simply eating in front of them.
You have the ability to set up lifelong healthy eating habits for your child from the very start of their life. In fact, the more healthy food you expose them to at a very young age, the less you will have to fight to get them to eat healthful meals as they grow older.
