Postpartum Doula Recommended:

Every morning, after giving birth to my son. My postpartum doula would kindly cook me this for breakfast.

Yes, I had a postpartum doula and it was the best decision that we made! 

She greatly assisted our family during this transition from 1-2 children and it allowed my body to recovery both physically and mentally.

(I plan on writing a post about this in the future, because having a postpartum doula was life changing. Especially, for someone who had a very difficult time the first time around with recovery and postpartum depression.)

My postpartum doula said this oatmeal recipe has helped moms recover from delivery, and  increase breastmilk supply 

How Does this Oatmeal Help?

STEEL OATS:

Steel Oats provide nutrition, energy, and it can naturally aid mother’s lactation. Note: if you are trying to boost your milk supply, DO NOT use instant oats.  

CHIA SEEDS:

Chia Seeds are a great way to add protein, help muscle recovery, and more!

GINGER:

Ginger helps aid digestion, which is a must after pregnancy! Ginger also helps soothe sore muscles and reduces any nausea you may have. Ginger is like a powerhouse!

FLAXSEEDS:

This is optional. The flaxseeds are mainly for breastfeeding mamas. Flaxseeds have estrogenic properties that can help nursing moms make more milk

BREWERS YEAST:

This is another optional ingredient. It is very beneficial for breastfeeding mamas!

For breastfeeding moms, these ingredients are a must!

Not just for this recipe, but for all of your meals throughout the day.
