During pregnancy there are some key nutrients your body needs. You’re creating a tiny human, cell-by-cell, so naturally that takes a lot of effort and foundational material to ensure all the right pieces are in place for a healthy, happy little bug.
Birth is also a pretty darn traumatic event for your body. So making sure you’re fueling your tissues with the right key ingredients post-birth can go a long way to ensuring your body recovers well during the fourth trimester (the first 3 months after birth) and beyond.
And if you’re breastfeeding you need to ensure you’re taking in enough nutrients to pass along to your baby because you can’t give what you don’t have.
For these 3 key reasons – pregnancy, the fourth trimester, and breastfeeding – we need to talk about the best nutrients for your body (and your baby’s body) and what supplements you may want to consider taking throughout all 3 stages.
