Postpartum Toolkit 

Below are my favorite products for your postpartum toolkit!

 

Digestion and Nutrition

  • Bowel Health
    • Stool Softener: helps protect the pelvic floor from further damage after childbirth from strenuous pushing during a BM.
    • Foods that support digestion (prune juice, flax seed, apple sauce) 
  • Staying hydrated:
    • Simple Modern 32 oz cup – easy to track how much you’re drinking
    • NUUN or Ultima – alternate these electrolyte drinks with water
    • Shoot for 60-90 oz per day of water and/or electrolyte drink

Baby Tools (benefiting mama too!)
