A mother’s body has unique nutritional needs postpartum, especially if she is breastfeeding. That’s why New Chapter’s Perfect Postnatal multivitamin is formulated specifically for new and nursing moms. Whole-food cultured B Vitamins, Vitamin D, and Iodine are included to support breast milk composition as well as whole foods and botanicals traditionally used by breastfeeding women, including organic Oats, Indian Turmeric and Egyptian Chamomile.
According to Gail Bowman, owner of Heath Food Emporium, “We are very excited about New Chapter’s new Post-Natal vitamin! Most women just continue to take their prenatal after the baby is born, but a prenatal really isn’t built for new moms who may be breast feeding. This new vitamin supports the changes that a woman’s body is undergoing after the baby is born, as well as actually being formulated for breast feeding! What a great concept!”
In a recent post, NGALA suggests, “Folate (folic acid) is involved in many chemical reactions in the body. It is essential for normal growth of all cells including blood and nerve tissue. Your folate stores may be low after the demands of pregnancy and birth, therefore adequate postnatal intake is essential for your good health and sufficient transfer into your breast milk. Folate is essential for normal growth of your baby after birth and your diet is the only source if your baby is fully breastfed.
“Adequate vitamin B12 is essential during pregnancy and breastfeeding for healthy development of your baby’s nervous system and red blood cells.
“Your iron requirements after pregnancy depend on a couple of things – whether you are breastfeeding and whether menstruation has returned.
“Calcium is an important mineral to keep your bones healthy and strong. During lactation, calcium is especially important. Insufficient calcium intake will result in calcium being taken from your bones leaving you at an increased risk of osteoporosis (brittle bones and fractures later in life).
“Iodine is a mineral that is needed in small amounts but is very important especially in pregnancy and lactation for the normal growth and brain development of your baby.
“Vitamin D is important to build and maintain bone and muscle strength.”
