Postpartum Recovery & Nutrient Repletion

The miracle of growing and birthing a human being is arguably the most “nutritionally expensive” task in a woman’s lifetime. With so much attention placed on prenatal nutrition, there’s surprisingly little discussion of postpartum nutrient needs.

Nutrients are preferentially transferred to the baby throughout pregnancy and continue at a rapid pace in mothers who breastfeed. Even in mothers who do not breastfeed, ample nutrients are needed for healing from childbirth (particularly if there are perineal tears or surgical wounds), to account for blood loss (from birth and lochia), to support uterine remodeling as it shrinks back to its prepregnancy size, and to support connective tissue and skin elasticity.

For those who plan to have more children—particularly if they desire closely spaced pregnancies—repleting nutrient stores is of vital importance to ensure optimal pregnancy outcomes.

This webinar will explore the rationale for postpartum nutrient repletion and tie together what we know from both modern research and the postpartum practices of traditional cultures.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • Physiology of postpartum recovery
  • Nutrients and foods to emphasize to support recovery and replenish nutrient stores
  • Postpartum practices from across the globe with special emphasis on the nutritional rationale of recommended foods
  • Brief discussion of breastfeeding nutrition (this is the sole focus of a separate, in-depth webinar)
  • Lab tests to assess nutritional status & supplements to consider
  • Return to exercise/movement, including considerations for pelvic floor recovery
  • Postpartum weight loss and body image
  • Pregnancy spacing — considerations from research studies and traditional cultures
  • Role of nutritional status on mental & emotional health

Date: Thursday, March 28th at 10am PST/1pm EST

This is a live webinar. A recording will be available, however, it’s recommended you attend live to participate in the Q&A at the end of the webinar.

Registration to the LIVE webinar is limited and WILL SELL OUT.

Time: 90 minutes

Q&A: There will be 10-15 minutes set aside for questions at the end.

CEUs: This webinar is preapproved for 1.5 CEUs for registered dietitians via CDR.


 


Nutrition for Breastfeeding: Effects of Maternal Intake on the Nutrient Content of Breast Milk

Many health professionals and public health campaigns cite that “breast milk is the perfect food” for infants, which is sometimes interpreted to mean that breast milk composition is fixed and not influenced by external factors, such as a mother’s diet.

Yet, even with all of its well-documented benefits, a growing body of research indicates that the nutritional content of breast milk is impacted by a mother’s diet and nutrient stores. This is of particular importance for those who have inadequate nutrient intake before, during, or after pregnancy.

As one researcher explains: “Any nutrient deficiency existing in pregnancy will ultimately be carried forward via lactation. It is a biological impossibility for a lactating woman to transfer nutrients via breast milk she does not have!” – Miriam Erick, RD, CDE, Brigham and Women’s Hospital

This provides an opportunity for nutrition professionals to help mothers and their breastfed infants optimize nutrient intake and long term health.

This webinar will take a closer look at the research on the nutritional variation in breast milk, nutrients that are affected by maternal intake, and strategies to boost the nutritional value to ensure breastfed infants receive adequate intake. Specific discussion of traditional nutrient-dense foods and their use cross culturally will be highlighted.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • Nutritional benefits of breastfeeding
  • How maternal intake and nutrient status impacts the nutritional value of breastmilk (which nutrients are affected by diet/supplements and which nutrients are not)
  • Developmental risks for infants of exclusively breastfed mothers who are undernourished
  • Practical strategies to support breastfeeding mothers with nutrient-dense foods and/or appropriate supplementation
