How does postpartum nutrition affect the healing process after specific birth practices and interventions? What about foods that are reported to improve milk supply? Are there some “big picture” strategies that can be used to promote evidence-based, simple-to-prepare, delicious meals during the postnatal period? Join Marie and her guest, Jaren Soloff, RD IBCLC, author of The Postnatal Cookbook, to learn the answers to these and other perplexing questions!
