Foreword by General Practioner, Dr Preeya Alexander.
As a mother and general practitioner, I know how tricky the postpartum period can be. Knowing what to eat and how to support the body in the postpartum period can be very difficult, particularly when new mothers are swamped with information, and exhausted juggling their new child’s needs with their own.
Harriet has beautifully broken down what the body (both mum and baby’s) needs in the postpartum period. She gives you the nuts and bolts so that you can make informed choices when it comes to diet and food choices.
I connected with Harriet on Instagram and have always admired the way she breaks down complex information around nutrition and medicine to give people bite-sized easy to digest information.
I wish I had read this before doing the postpartum journey all over again quite recently. Whilst I know some of it, having what the body needs, broken down in a clear and concise manner, reminds the exhausted ‘mum brain’ how to best support the body when it comes to nutrition.
This is a really helpful guide for mothers – I just wish I had read it sooner!
