Are you looking for science backed information on how to master eating for your health after you have a baby, and beyond to include starting weaning?

    Insightful book.
    Fantastic book full of insightful help on navigating a process that can be somewhat difficult. Helped me feel far more in control and help me understand the benefits of making the correct choices. Wonderful.

    My “go to” now book for nutrition after a baby.
    This is a really beautifully thought out and set out book. It’s refreshingly based in science yet really easy to read and take in. The author’s credentials in science, nutrition and having been through it all herself is impressive. It’s perfect for new mums looking to make informed choices whilst juggling all the demands of a baby. I love that it takes away any emotional burden from decisions about nutrition at this time, like whether to choose organic food or not? I especially liked the planner section which gives the portion sizes of certain foods and how often per week they’re needed to get the right nutritional balance. Highly recommend!

    Amazing postpartum resource for moms!
    This book is a perfect resource for someone who needs nutritional guidance but has little time, or like me, is severely sleep deprived. The fact that it’s supported by scientific research provides that extra layer of confidence I needed to be know I was making good eating choices during my postpartum journey.

    Accessible Reading for a healthy and relevant diet after a baby.
    Good to know that the author writes not only from medical knowledge but also from a personal point of view. I also appreciate that the texts are evidence-based, supported by scientific research. That is added value for me.

    An excellent publication.
    An excellent informative book. The presentation is superb and the advice is extremely helpful. The fact that it is backed up by a writer with serious professional and scientific credentials makes it stand out in a world of mediocracy.
    The writer has a clear understanding of her subject matter and is able to present it in a clear and intersting way.
    Highly recommended.

    Potentially life changing.
    Incredibly practical and applicable. I am not usually bothered by dieting, but after our first baby, whole family have experienced a nutritional challenge, didn’t yours? Same happened when number two arrived. Resulting in us putting on some thirty kilos of excess weight on, combined. All easily avoidable. Read it, ideally before starting family, but never too late

    Excellent and useful book.
    This book is very good, easy to read, and very helpful especially at a time that face-to-face visits with nutritionists and healthcare providers are limited. It has everything in one place. Well written and well laid out! Would highly recommend it to new parents!

    A crucial guide simple to follow inspired piece of work! Essential read for any mother. Read and be inspired! If you want to know what nutrition is good for you when you are a mother, you have to read this book. Thank you for sharing this, Dr Holme!

    An invaluable compendium of all you need to know about post partum nutrition.
    Delivers on exactly what the cover describes but also in an easily absorbable manner. A real gem of a book that should be on the bookshelf of every expecting mother to serve as a reference.

    Excellent resource.
    Found this an excellent resource, especially the chapter on cow’s milk protein allergy and reflux, a life threatening condition suffered by one of my twins. Will definitely suggest this to new parents.

    One of the best books I have seen on the subject.
    Since we are all aware these days how nutrition affects our longevity, our mental health as well as our physical well-being, it is so good to see a scientific as well as a practical approach.
