Nourishing the New Mother: The Lost Art of Postpartum Care

Jennifer Grafiada

What are the consequences of neglecting the mother in this delicate time period? Some cultures believe that neglect during the immediate postpartum period can have detrimental effects lasting into the woman’s menopausal years and beyond. 

… It is no secret that raising a child requires a massive amount of “building block material,” which is why traditional cultures practiced child spacing of at least three years between each child. This practice allows women to rebuild their nutritional stores. 

… Nutrients that may be depleted include iron, folate, calcium, potassium, vitamin D, vitamin A and carotenoids, magnesium, iodine, omega-3, phosphorus, zinc, DHA and other essential fatty acids, B12 and selenium. Scarily enough, this can cause permanent changes to the mother’s brain and body.
