Postpartum – such a blissful, yet messy time, haha! Emotionally, physically – all of the things. My health & wellness has always been a priority in my life…I know that I can’t pour from an empty cup so taking care of myself is something that always comes first. Because I am this way, I was super anxious about postpartum & the fourth trimester. I didn’t know if I would have time (or the energy) to prioritize my health with my whole world now revolving around Charli. Well, I quickly learned that it’s more important than *ever* to take care of myself. And while it absolutely takes a little bit more energy & planning now – it is SO worth it. It’s a non-negotiable for me.
Before Charli made her debut, myself & Nick did a ton of research on what a postpartum women really needs. Diet, supplements, nutrients, etc. I think the most important factor in any wellness routine, is diet. I’ve made eating whole, nutrient-dense foods a priority in postpartum to give my body the fuel it needs for my new life! I got all of my postpartum vitamins & supplements ordered and ready to go the last couple weeks of pregnancy so that all I would have to do when we got home, is remember to take everything! I’m really proud and happy with the wellness routine that I’ve developed – and I truly think it’s been a huge factor in my easy recovery, my ability to drive through the day with energy (as much energy as I can have on little sleep, haha), stay balanced & overall feel *pretty* dang good so far. So today, that’s what I’m sharing with you! Read all about every I’m taking & why below – including links to everything!
Ritual Postnatal Vitamin // this is my multi-vitamin of choice for the postpartum period! It’s packed with nutrients for new mom’s and can be taken through 6 months postpartum, and throughout breastfeeding. Nutrients like Vitamin A, D, E, C & B12, folate, magnesium bison, iron & more! It has a minty aftertaste and now that I’m not pregnant, I have no issues with taking Ritual’s vitamins and feeling nauseous!
