Taking dietary supplements
after
pregnancy1,2

After giving birth, your
body will undergo another
radical transformation
as it reverts back to its pre-
pregnancy state. It is important to eat healthy and supplement your diet in the same way you did during the prenatal period. So don’t stop, continue to take your prenatal vitamin!

Holding baby icon.

If you are breastfeeding, know that your body is continuing to provide vitamins, proteins, and fats that your growing baby needs.

Baby bottle icon.

If you’re going the formula route, talk to your pediatrician about how to pick the best formula for you and your baby.

Hormones icon.

Your hormones are all over the place, and your body is reverting back to its pre-pregnancy “normal.” These fluctuations can be detrimental to your health and well-being. With all these changes, it’s important to stay consistent with your dietary supplements.

Getting your health back on track can be challenging because hormones and nutrients have been fluctuating over the last 9+ months, and you need to be there for your new baby.

That’s why OB Complete® nutrition is here to support you.
