The postnatal period refers to the six weeks directly following childbirth. After giving birth, it is prevalent for mothers to experience exhaustion and their health not be the same as before pregnancy. It is crucial for women to rebuild their health as this is the time when the mother’s body still recovering from pregnancy, giving birth and now becoming a new mother or a mother again.  Nourishing the body after childbirth is essential as the postnatal period can be the beginning of health problems which may persist for many years. After birth, most attention is placed on the new baby. Therefore mother’s health is often affected.
