The postpartum and lactation phase of life demand intake of high quality nutrition in order to replenish and restore the mother’s nutritional stores, but also to provide the highest quality of breastmilk production for her baby.
Eating a plant-based diet is not only provides the the postpartum body all that it needs in this phase of life, it also provides benefits for both the mother’s and babies health - one of the biggest benefits being the lower levels of environmental toxicity in the breastmilk of plant-based mothers.
The postpartum/lactation phase certainly still has its many special nutritional considerations and it’s essential for new mothers to ensure that they are eating ENOUGH.
