Fuel for the Fourth Trimester

We all know there are three trimesters to pregnancy, and, thankfully, there is beginning to be broader
awareness of the all-important – yet little-discussed – fourth trimester. These post-birth months are
both a time of continued newborn growth and development and an incredibly important time of
healing, adjustment and regeneration for new postpartum parents. Your postpartum diet is a key part

nurturing the birthing parent with emotional support and nourishing meals, all in the name of helping
the new parent replenish their strength and heal from the hugely physical accomplishment that is
pregnancy and birth.
