Why Take a Postnatal Vitamin?
It is essential during postpartum to maintain optimal nutrient intake to feel your best and have the energy to take care of yourself and your new baby. It is recommended that Postnatal Supplements be taken right after delivery and continue usage throughout breastfeeding (if that is what you choose to do) or six months.
There are key ingredients a good Postnatal Supplement should have.
It Includes Iron
After birth, you continue to lose blood (Iron) via lochia (the normal postpartum bleeding that most experience for about a month after delivery). Blood loss during delivery can further deplete blood levels which can exacerbate already existing amenia. Postpartum iron deficiency and anemia are extremely common and can have downstream effects on things like thyroid function and risk for postpartum depression. Having a Postnatal Supplement with Iron in it will boost up your Iron after delivery in 6 to 8 weeks. In infants, iron supports brain development. Data from the CDC suggest that most infants have enough iron stores for the first 4 months of life, but breastfed babies are often lacking after that. Once they begin solids, however, babies can meet their nutritional needs with iron-rich foods.
It Includes DHA
DHA is an essential fatty acid, meaning we can't make it ourselves. Research shows that infants have enhanced motor, cognitive and visual development if their mom consumes DHA. So really, DHA is imperative for baby’s brain and cognitive development. Taking a Postnatal Supplement with DHA will enhance your mental focus, reduce inflammation, and lower the risk of postpartum depression for you as well.
It Includes Vitamin C
After giving birth, your body needs to do some serious healing. Vitamin C will help support this, no matter if baby arrived vaginally or via c-section. Vitamin C contributes to producing breast milk as well if you decide to nurse your baby. Some women experience hair loss during the postpartum stage due to hormonal changes. Having a Postnatal Supplement with Vitamin C in it will help aid the loss of hair and help the change in your hormones not be so drastic.
