Nursing Postnatal Breastfeeding Multivitamin from Fairhaven Health is a daily multi-vitamin WITHOUT additional enhancements for milk production. It's an ideal choice for new mothers seeking to restore their bodies' depleted nutrients post-pregnancy and to ensure optimal nutrition for themselves and their newborns.
While many women continue to take their prenatal vitamin after giving birth and while breastfeeding, or return to their pre-pregnancy multivitamin instead, the reality is that a new mother's needs are unique and may not be adequately met by either prenatal vitamins or basic multivitamins.
Lactating women require 200 more calories daily than pregnant and non-pregnant women, as well as additional nutrients to support milk production and adequate nutrition for her newborn. While getting those calories and nutrients from healthy foods is the ideal, many women are tired, low in iron (which is often depleted during pregnancy and after due to the high volume of blood flow and blood loss), and not able to consume all their nutrients from food alone, especially vitamin D, iron and B vitamins.
Nursing Postnatal Breastfeeding Multivitamin contains 100% of the RDA of iron, Vitamin C, Vitamin A and Vitamin E suggested for lactating women. The Vitamin C supports your immune system (and therefore baby's) along with helping your body absorb the iron. Vitamin A and E support your healthy skin and hair, possibly helping to minimize postpartum hair loss.
The 700% RDA amount of Vitamin D in Nursing Postnatal Breastfeeding Multivitamin supports your body's ability to absorb calcium from food along with strengthening immunity for you and your baby.
Calcium and magnesium aren't included in this multivitamin because they are best absorbed when consumed either in food or with food, therefore take with Pregnancy Plus Cal-Mag if you're unable to get 1000 mg of calcium daily through your diet.
