Dietary Support For Post Natal
Ideally mothers should be eating foods rich in prebiotics to improve maternal gut bacteria. Babies acquire their gut and skin bacteria during vaginal delivery and breast feeding within the first month of their lives. Research also indicates that eating a diverse range of foods may be important for allergy prevention.
While mothers will want to increase their hydration and calories because of breast feeding, they will want to look to complex carbohydrates for calories which also include fiber and prebiotics. Complex carbohydrates such as root vegetables also have phytonutrients which support detoxification and boost your immunity.
Post pregnancy, mothers will also want to be eating whole foods that are high in calcium and iron because these are minerals that are lost during pregnancy and are needed in increased amounts during lactation. Examples of foods rich in calcium – vegetables such as broccoli and mustard greens, tofu and nuts like almonds, dairy products. Iron – dark green leafy vegetables like kai lan, spinach, chye sim, meat – any kind of meat, organ meats if you are so inclined.
