Vegan and Vegetarian Postpartum: What you need to know
Show Notes

You’ve likely heard me talk about how raw vegetables and salads are not an ideal food for you in postpartum, and if you’re a vegan or vegetarian you may be wondering how on earth you’re supposed to get what you need in postpartum if those foods aren’t suitable for your body during that time. I’m going to break all of this down for you in this episode. To continue a vegan or vegetarian diet, especially in postpartum, you will need extra support to fully heal. Through supplements, and possibly some modifications to your diet.

Disclaimer, I will not be pushing either diet on you or go into the differences between the two. I am here to explain the most up-to-date scientific data about these diets and my recommendations.
