About This Event

  • Event Type:Classes

This class is offered by BCH's The Birth Center of Boulder.

Good nutrition should continue into the 4th trimester after you have given birth. Sometimes eating well can be the first thing sacrificed when a new baby arrives. This is unfortunate because proper nutrition and nutrient-dense foods are a preventive and health-boosting measure against emotional distress and exhaustion. It is also crucial in proper healing of the body and offering optimal nutrition to your little one!

Too often new mamas come home from the hospital with little support and no real focus on nutrition and how to properly replenish their nutrient stores. In this 90-minute session, holistic nutrition consultant Katie Braswell will discuss the importance of postpartum nutrition and supplementation, including how to meal prep for postpartum success, supplementation recommendations, nutritional needs, and more!

This can be taken by itself or as a series with the Prenatal Nutrition/Supplementation Session on 1/12.
