Vegan New Mother Postpartum Wellness
Congratulations on your new bundle of joy! This is such an important time for
you and your new baby and in order to make sure your baby is well, you need
to be well too! Whether you are breast-feeding or bottle feeding we can make
sure you are getting the best natural health care to support your recovery from
labour and your transition to motherhood.
• Breastfeeding vegan mum? Make sure you are getting all the nutrients you
need from plant based diet while breastfeeding your baby.
• Having trouble breastfeeding? Naturopathy and herbal medicine can offer
wonderful support for breastfeeding. Whether your supply is too low or too
high, if you experience mastitis or thrush, herbal medicine can be powerful
tool to help you and your baby on your breastfeeding journey.
• Herbal and nutritional protocols can be very helpful for breastfeeding mothers.
I often work alongside lactation consultants to make sure breastfeeding gets
off to a good start.
Please note: If your baby is having difficulty latching, if your nipples are sore, cracked or
bleeding, please get in touch with a lactation consultant or a breastfeeding counsellor
from La Leche League or Cuidiú to seek more support.
