Nourishing and Nurturing Mama

The Nutrients and Practices Needed for Postpartum Wellness

We’re diving deep into the intersection of nutrition, motherhood, postpartum wellness and holistic well-being. I had a fun and enriching conversation with our special guest expert, Brooke Harmer.

Brooke isn’t just your average nutritionist and women’s health coach—she’s a warrior mama who’s walked the challenging path of postpartum struggles herself. After facing postpartum anxiety, autoimmune illness, and gut issues following the birth of her first child, Brooke refused to accept a life without answers. Fueled by determination, she dove into the realm of holistic nutrition, seeking to understand and address the root causes of her health struggles.

And let me tell you, mama, what Brooke has to say is nothing short of inspiring. She believes there’s an intricate dance between a mother’s well-being and her child’s health. It’s a connection so profound that when we optimize our routines and meals, not only does it accelerate our child’s healing journey, but it also frees up space for us as mothers to truly thrive.

Brooke puts it perfectly when she says, “You cannot be the best mom if you can’t be the best you.” And she’s absolutely right. So, let’s delve into some essential tips and insights that Brooke has to offer to help you nourish your body, mind, and soul for postpartum wellness.

Nutrients All Postpartum Mamas Need

Nourishment is a big part of postpartum wellness. Postnatal moms are in a delicate position, having just gone through the incredible journey of pregnancy and childbirth. It’s essential to replenish your body with warm, nourishing foods like soup, kitchari, and oatmeal. Cold, raw foods might sound refreshing and light, but they’re hard to digest and won’t provide the comfort and healing your body truly needs. That baby weight will naturally start to shed as you breastfeed and properly nourish your postpartum body.

But it’s not just about what you eat—it’s about replenishing those essential nutrients like B vitamins, iron, potassium, and magnesium. Water alone won’t cut it, mama. Incorporate whole grains, fatty fish, animal products, cooked spinach, root vegetables, and fruits into your diet to ensure you’re giving your body the support it needs to heal and thrive.

Your skin, being the body’s largest organ, deserves proper care and nourishment. Harness its potential as a gateway to deliver essential nutrients with our Skin Comfort System. Our Eczema Relief Oil serves as a dual-action solution, alleviating inflammation both internally and externally. Meanwhile, our Anti-Itch Spray offers a refreshing and hydrating burst, enriched with healing herbs. Additionally, our Eczema-Soothing Cream is fortified with vital vitamins A, D, E, and K, addressing nutritional deficiencies commonly experienced during the postpartum period. With these products, you can provide holistic support for your skin’s health and overall well-being.

Postpartum Wellness Needs to Be a Focus Immediately

Now, let’s talk about time. Did you know that research shows it takes about seven years for your body to fully heal from pregnancy and childbirth? That’s right, mama. Seven years. So, give yourself grace and time to heal. Those first twelve weeks after giving birth are crucial. Be as “selfish” as you need to be—prioritize your healing journey above all else. This will save so much time, aches and pains if you address this huge body event those first twelve weeks after it happened.

Self Compassion

And mama, let’s not forget about self-compassion. Embrace your scars, stretch marks, and all the physical evidence of the incredible journey you’ve been through. Acceptance is key to healing on an emotional level. It’s okay to prioritize your own needs and indulge in self-care guilt-free.

Joy When Your Child Does Not Feel Joyful

Speaking of guilt, let’s address the infamous mom guilt. We’ve all been there, feeling guilty for prioritizing our own needs. As cliche as it is, self-care isn’t selfish—it’s essential. Remember the airplane analogy: put your mask on before assisting others. You can’t pour from an empty cup, so prioritize your needs without guilt. Whether it’s eating a nourishing meal, staying hydrated, or indulging in some much-needed me-time, you deserve it.

And let’s not forget to make time for joy! It’s one of the most vital things you can do to ensure your family’s wellness. Schedule it if you have to. Treat it like an appointment because your happiness matters. Whether it’s a skincare routine, a leisurely walk, or lunch with girlfriends, prioritize activities that bring you joy and rejuvenate your spirit. It makes you much more fun to be around and your family will thank you for it.
