Postpartum Do’s and Don’t

Malaysia is known for its delicious food but there are definitely a few types of food you should avoid, at least for the time being.

Fish – Fish is a good source of protein and you do not have to avoid it completely, just be selective of what type of seafood is in your intake. This is because fish can sometimes be high in mercury.

Coffee – We know caffeine seems like the perfect cure to those sleepless nights, but it can work its way into your breast milk.

Citrus – Although citrus is loaded with vitamin C, it is highly acidic and causes stomach discomfort.

Peppermint and parsley – These herbs are known as anti-galactagogues, which means that if consumed in high doses, can decrease breast milk production. You are all caught up about food to avoid, here is a list of food you SHOULD be eating!

Sesame seeds – Big things come in small packages and sesame seeds are a great resource of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, and copper. These are mineral your body will need to bounce back from your pregnancy.

Turmeric – A local favourite in terms of spices, it is full of healing properties to help you. Turmeric helps fight inflammation with vitamin B6, C, magnesium, potassium, and manganese.

Ginger – Instead of putting it in your food, try putting it in your tea! Ginger helps with muscle soreness after childbirth and has vitamins such as B6, E, selenium, manganese, potassium, fiber, and iron.
