    Gluten-and major allergen-free
    Optimal doses

    All the benefits

    Brain Development—Times Two!
    Choline improves immune and cognitive function, and if you are chest/breastfeeding, the Choline concentration in your milk supports baby’s memory, too. It can also help if you’re experiencing decreased focus and memory after delivery.
    Milk-Making Support
    You need more Calcium during pregnancy, and for the first year after delivery. If you’re chest/breastfeeding, Calcium is critical in supporting milk composition and volume. Your calcium stores also influence your blood pressure, muscle strength and function, blood clotting, nervous system and hormone production.
    Energy Boosting
    It’s hard to get enough Vitamin B12, especially when our diets fall short. It converts fat and protein to energy—something you need tons of postpartum. B12 gets used up fast in pregnancy, and a deficiency in a chest/breastfeeding parent can be passed on to the child. It’s recommended to get well above the suggested daily intake of B12, as we only absorb a small amount of it from supplements.
    Support Hair Regrowth
    Unfortunately, postpartum hair loss is very common (but not permanent!) thanks to hormone changes after birth. The Postpartum supplement includes all the right ingredients to support hair regrowth including Biotin, Vitamin C, Zinc, Vitamin D and Iron.

    All the good stuff in it

    Daily Essentials for females (x2)
    This comprehensive blend includes Vitamin D for Calcium absorption and immune aid, along with Iodine, Zinc and Selenium for thyroid support. Meanwhile, easy-to-absorb Iron helps your blood transport oxygen, reducing the risk of postpartum anemia and associated fatigue. Pregnancy go-tos Folic Acid and Methylated Folate (5-MTHF, the active form of Folic Acid) are still important postnatal because Folate is needed for red blood cell development, energy creation, and DNA and RNA production, and it can be shared with an infant via chest/breastfeeding. Choline improves immune and cognitive function for the birthing parent and eases symptoms of decreased focus after delivery. If you’re chest/breastfeeding, the Choline concentration in your mik supports baby’s memory, too. For a much-needed energy boost in those early days, turn to Vitamin B12. It converts fat and protein into energy. Our B12 stock gets used up in pregnancy, and a vitamin deficiency in a chest/breastfeeding parent can be passed onto the child, so it’s important to get tons of B12, especially when our diets fall short.
    Algae Oil DHA (x1)
    Every cell in your body needs this omega-3 fatty acid, but it’s not something you produce naturally and many diets fall short. Postpartum, DHA is passed to the baby via chest/breastmilk to support cognitive, visual and immune system development. The DHA levels in milk can vary widely—it depends entirely on how much the chest/breastfeeding person consumes. To make it easier on you, our vegan DHA comes from algae oil so there’s no fishy aftertaste.
    Optional Add-On: Lactation Boost (x2)
    The top reason parents stop chest/breastfeeding is low milk supply—but we’ve got you covered if that’s your preferred feeding method. There are several plants that research has shown can increase breast milk production and stimulate flow. Blessed Thistle is a Mediterranean herb that stimulates blood circulation to the mammary glands to improve milk flow. Fenugreek Seeds are a source of phytoestrogens, which play a role in the making of prolactin, the milk production hormone. Moringa Leaf, a highly valued food crop in its native South Asia, has been shown to increase prolactin levels and milk production.

    What you may be asking yourself right now

    I gave birth awhile ago, can I still take The Postpartum?
    Yes! At its core, The Postpartum is a fantastic daily multivitamin, giving people with eggs a lot of support with essential nutrients. A high dose of B12 is great for energy, plus it supports the replication of DNA. (Reminder: DNA is like the instruction manual found in all your cells that tells your body how to make proteins.) Replicating DNA takes a lot of energy, so we need our daily doses of Folic Acid and 5-MTHF, Zinc, Magnesium and Iron to lend their support. We also need to bring in the big guns like Selenium, Vitamin C and Vitamin E to help prevent damage to our DNA and keep our body running smoothly.
    Why do I need extra Calcium and Magnesium after I give birth?
    You need more calcium during pregnancy, and for the first year after delivery. If you’re chest/breastfeeding, calcium is critical in supporting milk composition and volume. Your calcium stores also influence your blood pressure, muscle strength and function, blood clotting, nervous system and hormone production. As we age, our body’s ability to absorb calcium from food declines, so a top-up when our body needs it most is recommended.

    Mangenisum is commonly depleted, and the low can be amplified by stress and hormone swings (hello postpartum life!). It acts an anxiety reducer and muscle relaxant—super helpful during the postnatal days of adjusting to a new normal, which often involves a lack of sleep.
    Is the Postpartum suitable for vegetarians and vegans?
    Yes! This formula is vegan!

    I highly recommend Bird&Be prenatal supplements to all my patients who are trying to conceive. They provide a personalized and convenient approach, which makes their prenatals more efficient and enhances patient compliance.

    I'm thrilled for patients to be able to access higher and more effective doses of key ingredients than I've seen in other prenatals - three cheers for choline and CoQ10!

    Having an evidence-based approach to fertility-focused supplements is a key component to optimizing success, and it’s great that Bird&Be’s scientifically-backed prenatals are accessible to everyone, regardless of whether they’re seeing a fertility specialist.

    Bird&Be has hit all the right marks for prenatal and preconception care. They’ve removed the guesswork from patients' supplement regimes, while emphasizing dose education and including usable, active ingredient forms.

    Personalizing the formulas based on the individual's needs makes Bird&Be's supplements much more effective, especially for those who require a much more intensive regimen to support conception.

    Love it!

    Easy to remember, love the packaging (feels very premium) and lactation boost has had a positive impact on my milk supply. Would highly recommend to all new mamas.

    Awful. Completely wasted nearly 28 oz of my milk.
    My poor newborn is so gassy & has abdominal pain. Can’t even drink my milk now. The “boost” in this contains fenugreek. This is NOT listed in the main list but instead listed in the separate page. This feels more like deception from Bird & Be and i no longer feel its right to recommend this as a “safe” vitamin.

    Hi Kaitlyn,

    We're sorry to hear about your experience and want to address your concerns. Our ingredients are displayed on all product pages, and you can find the full list by clicking the "full list of ingredients" button, which is prominently featured on all product pages. We aim to be 100% clear and accessible to our customers.

    Regarding fenugreek, it has long been used for breastfeeding support. While in very high doses it can sometimes cause side effects, our dose is not very high. It's important to note that there are rare cases of infants having an allergy to fenugreek. In such cases, a different lactation support product may be more suitable. We suggest trying our lactation boost free formula, as not all herbs work the same for everyone, similar to medications.

    We understand that this was not a great experience, and our customer service team will email you shortly to make it right. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

    Amazing

    This is my 6th baby and first time using the postnatal with lactation support. My baby girl is 10 weeks old and I can’t say enough amazing things about these supplements. I went 2 days without due to not ordering in time to be shipped, and I could tell a huge difference in my milk supply and energy level. I feel amazing, and have been able to exclusively breast-feed since day one.

    Saved Me

    I was unknowingly struggling with PPD and PPA which often manifested as rage, zero motivation to self care, clean, cook. I was happy to do everything for my baby but that was all I had to give. 2 weeks into taking these and I was myself again. Up before baby getting ready, cooking and cleaning, calmer and genuinely happier. I stopped taking them for a month and went right back to where I started, so for now I’m back on them and feeling amazing again.
