When I gave birth to my third child, Victoria, I was taking care of John Hamilton and America, while my husband, Thomas, was deployed. So not only did I have three kids for the first time in my life, but I was all alone. And of course, Victoria’s delivery was the hardest one yet. I don’t know why because she was the smallest out of the three of them, but it was really rough and took a lot out of my body. Afterwards, I felt really depleted and exhausted. I needed an extra oomph to get me through those first few weeks.
Postpartum can be such an exciting -- and challenging -- time! You have a new baby, a rush of hormones going in and out of your body, and you’re also doing things you’ve never done before in your life. You’re changing diapers, nursing, and trying to manage a whole new being. It can be even harder at times when you have so many other children relying on you. I wanted to be this amazing mom, and I knew that in order to do that I needed to rest and recover.
I created Postpartum Mood Support and Total Postnatal because of those experiences. There is no other time like postpartum. You’ll never need the same vitamins and minerals that you do right after having a baby. That’s why we took the hassle of finding the right mix of vitamins that your body needs and made complete vitamins for full mental and physical postpartum care!
