Optimizing Perinatal Nutrition to Support Birth, Recovery, and Maternal Mental Health
The perinatal period, including pregnancy and postpartum, is a unique time in a woman's life that presents with increased nutritional needs. A majority of women may find it more challenging to meet increased nutritional needs due to the overwhelming demands and stressors that are associated with this time period. Risks of inadequate nutrition during the perinatal period can include prolonged healing and increased risk of maternal mental health disorders, including postpartum depression. Perinatal health professionals can play a crucial role in helping women optimize their nutritional needs during pregnancy and postpartum to support birth, recovery and improve maternal mental health outcomes.
