Essential Foods and Herbs

Sesame Oil

Sesame oil is very nutrient dense and is packed with a combination of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. It is also rich in Vitamin E. Sesame oil is a key ingredient during your postpartum recovery period due to its warming effect on your body. It also improves your overall health and well-being by improving your blood circulation.

Nutrient Dense Foods

After childbirth, it is critical to replace lost nutrients and restore balance in your body by consuming only nutrient dense foods. You should avoid dieting and reducing your food consumption because your body is weak and it needs to be replenished with nutrient dense foods that can aid in your recovery and also build and enrich your breast milk.
