I’m often asked by expecting mummas… when is the best time to stock up on postpartum foods ?
Whilst there is no one-size fits all in any part of pregnancy, there’s a few things to take into consideration when planning the delivery of your postpartum nourishment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Feeling organised brings with it personal support and a sense of calm
- Postpartum can last a long time so an initial collection of nourishing foods is worth preparing in advance
- Babies don’t always arrive on time, and sometimes can come into the world earlier than expected
- Consider what you plan on eating and drinking during labour as this can make a huge difference to your energy levels and physical comfort
I would recommend you have a clear plan of what foods you would like to include postpartum at the start of your third trimester. With delivery and a stocked freezer around 35 weeks.
