Supporting yourself through the fourth trimester
Practicing self-care during this time is so important and still often overlooked when the priority suddenly shifts gears. It’s so important to remember to ‘put your oxygen mask on first’ so we can avoid post-natal depletion and ensure we can look after the new family as best as we can.
Nourishing with the right foods and plenty of it is at the very top of that list, so enlisting anyone who can cook for you is a lifesaver or signing up for any of the growing number of prepared meal delivery services that are available now is worth the investment.
The body during this time needs so much extra love and attention and when choosing what to consume there should be particular focus on:
- Lactation support
- Calming for nervous system and adrenals
- Immune boosting
