The First Step in Postnatal Care You Should Be Taking

If you’re like most moms, you probably took your prenatal vitamin religiously during your pregnancy (well, when it didn’t make you gag during the throes of first-trimester morning sickness!).

Then after delivery, you were discharged from the hospital with a brand-new baby, super-sore, with a barely recognizable body — and an appointment to see your OB in 6 weeks. So, was your body just magically supposed to return to “normal” by then?

So what if we told you there was something that would help your beaten-up, postpartum body? Something that would give you more energy? That would help with healing, mood and even milk supply?

Postpartum vitamins, friends. These powerful pills are just as important as your prenatals — and here’s why.
