New Mama Questions:

Simply add one stick pack of New Mama drink mix to your water (at least 20 ounces) twice a day, any time of day, and enjoy! The vitamin and mineral blend in New Mama is designed to replace a prenatal vitamin/mineral supplement after you have a baby.

The amounts and forms of vitamins and minerals included were tailored to meet the needs of a postpartum mother - to help her body recover, balance moods, hormones and energy levels, and replenish all the nutrients depleted throughout pregnancy & breastfeeding. In a period of life when meeting nutrition needs through an optimal diet is likely pretty low on her probability/priority list, nutritional support is a necessity for most moms.

The botanicals included in New Mama provide additional support from nature to help calm and soothe the nerves, hormone fluctuations, and anxieties associated with being a new mama, to support lactation if a mother chooses to breast or bottle feed, and to help her settle into more restful sleep...even in the few hours she does get.

As soon as you give birth! Most doctors recommend to continue taking your prenatal vitamins for the first year after birth, and as long as you are considering growing your family. However, prenatal vitamins are designed for a woman growing and supporting life. I Am Nurtured’s Postnatal Supplement Drink Mix, New Mama, is designed for a woman who is supporting life outside of her body, who also requires different nutrient levels tailored to a body healing from childbirth and re-adjusting to a new lifestyle with baby in tow.

Yes. The vitamin and mineral blend in New Mama is designed to replace a prenatal or postnatal vitamin/mineral supplement for the first year after you have a baby. The amounts and forms of vitamins and minerals included were tailored to meet the needs of a postpartum mother. The botanicals included in New Mama are an added bonus on top of what a normal postnatal supplement provides. They help calm and soothe the nerves, hormone fluctuations, and anxieties associated with being a new mama, support lactation if a mother chooses to breast or bottle feed, and help her settle into more restful sleep...in the very few hours she does get.

Along with the vitamins, minerals and botanicals listed on the ingredients facts panel, we use citric acid and natural flavors to get that wonderful citrus taste. We also use stevia and katemfe fruit extract - a natural sweetener derived from the katemfe fruit in West Africa.

Our proprietary blend of botanicals includes Red Raspberry Leaf and Moringa Olifera - two herbs known as galactogogues. Galactogogues are herbs that have been shown in research and in anecdotal reports to increase a mother’s milk production.

B-Vitamins, including B1, B2, B3, B6, B9, and B12, are involved in so many of the body’s processes, and when they are plentiful in the body, aid your body in converting the nutrients from food into energy your body can use. Getting adequate amounts of B vitamins from your diet and supplement helps counteract the fatigue that comes along with being a new mama.
