Prenatal Supplements Postpartum

“Absolutely! You should definitely continue whatever program you were on while you were pregnant as far as supplements and prenatals because when you are pregnant the baby is getting all that nutrition first. Then after you have your baby, you are getting all your nutrition and your milk as you are trying to build up that milk supply. If you do choose to breastfeed, you’re passing on that nutrition to the baby, and it’s really important to take care of ourselves so that we can recover and that we can take care of someone else. We have to make sure that we are completely filled up emotionally, physically, (and) nutritionally. If we want to give to someone else (it is) so important for us to care for ourselves.”
