Pregnancy/Maternity

Post-partum care

Once we gave birth, we must take care of ourselves to recuperate quickly. Here is a short recap of the main steps.

Diet

Most women whether they breastfeed or not loose weight during the first month after delivery (10 to 14 pounds). After that, normal weight loss should amount to one to two pounds per week for women who don’t breastfeed and two to four pounds for women who do.

New mothers should adopt the diet recommended in Canada's Food Guide. It is no longer necessary to take iron supplements but you should prioritize foods that are rich in proteins and in fibres to avoid drops of energy.
