E-Book Postpartum Nutrition: An Expert’s Guide to Eating After A Baby


Imagine having the confidence that you are making the best possible choices to feed you and your baby? Credible, science backed information on how to master eating for your health after you have a baby, and beyond to include starting weaning.

With so much conflicting information available online about nutrition after you have had a baby, it can be difficult to sift the fact from fiction. As a mother herself, who breastfeed and had babies with cow’s milk protein allergy, Dr Harriet Holmes wrote this book to help other mums-to-be have easy access to all the information they need, without endless searching on the internet.

By the end of this book, you will understand all aspects of postpartum nutrition, including the nutrients you need while breastfeeding and how having kids affects your metabolism. It will also help you understand the best way to support your baby when it comes to weaning them, as well the vitamins and exercise your child will need as they grow.

Why we love it: The book is 114 pages of information based on the latest guidance and scientific evidence. Like having Dr Harriet Holmes on speed dial, this useful nutrition guide is packed with practical tips to help you and your baby eat for health.

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!
