Postnatal Nutrition – 15/16th September 2021
The early weeks after having a baby can be an emotional rollercoaster and eating to support yourself and your new baby can be far down the list!
After having a baby your body needs to recover, and prepare itself for the demands of a new-born, and your baby needs certain nutrients to support growth. Feeding a baby can be an emotionally challenging time for parents, and parents often look for advice and support.
In our 6 hour session, Nutritionist Katie Angotti shares her advice on foods and nutrients to support mums and babies in the early weeks after birth with increasing energy and recovery, as well as advice on milk for the baby, whether breastfeeding or bottle-fed.
This session also offers advice on the best nutrients to support a recovery from a C-section, the specific nutrient demands for breastfeeding, how to handle breastfeeding and allergies, lactation and milk supply and advice on formula milk amongst others.
The interactive session is online, with time for Q&As. All course attendees will be provided with a handout after the session.
