    3 Tips for Healthy Eating While Breastfeeding

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Many woman find that the bonding experience of nursing your child is beyond compare. While you are taking care of your baby, it is important to take care of yourself as well, so here are three tips for healthy eating while you are breastfeeding.

    1. Stay Hydrated

    Drink plenty of fluids so you don't get dehydrated and so your body can produce the milk your child needs. Water is great, milk will add protein and calcium to your breast milk, and juices will give you vitamin C that you need to stay healthy. Look for 100% pure juice—no juice cocktails—and stick with 2% milk, unless your OBGYN or pediatrician advises you otherwise.

    2. Watch What You Eat

    Pack in the fruits, veggies, whole grains, and lean proteins. All the nutritious foods that you were eating during pregnancy are still vital to nourishing your baby now that you are breastfeeding, and remember that you are also feeding your body to help it recover from the experience of pregnancy and birth. Eat healthy meals and snacks throughout the day, and not only will your baby be happy, but you'll see your body return to normal soon too.

    3. Eat Healthy Snacks

    Low-fat or Greek yogurt, cheese cubes, cut up fruit or easy to eat fruits like apples, banana, and grapes, sliced veggies like bell peppers, cucumbers, carrots, and celery, and whole grain crackers or granola bars make for great grab-and-go snacks. If you can, spend a couple of hours during the weekend prepping and cooking, so that you'll always have healthy, nutritious food ready to go when you need it.

    If you need an OBGYN or a gynecologist, come to WomanCare. We offer prenatal care as well as care for other issues that affect women. Call us to schedule an appointment at (847) 221-4700.

    New review for WomanCare in Arlington Heights on Yelp

    Last updated 2 years ago

    You know how when you have a doctors appointment, you always go in expecting to be seen about 10-15 minutes after your appointment time?  Yeah, I'm always about 10-15 minutes early, and consistently leave BEFORE my appointment time because I was seen early! Every staff member there is great (there was one crotchety nurse, but I haven't seen her in... More

    Remedies for Helping with Menopause Symptoms

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Menopause, while a normal part of life, can be stressful for women. It changes almost everything that you’ve become accustomed to about your body in the last 30 to 40 years. But, there is help out there—here are some remedies for dealing with menopause symptoms.

    Medication

    You can try prescription medications, like bioidentical hormones or traditional hormone replacement therapies. These medications can counteract some of the symptoms that women find so frustrating, like hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, vaginal dryness, and decreased libido. You can get these medicines in several different forms, like pills, creams, gels, patches, and vaginal rings, and your gynecologist can help you decide what's best for you.

    Supplements

    Another option to try is herbal supplements. These natural products can alleviate some of the unpleasant side effects of menopause. Black cohosh, for example, can help improve your mood, including the depression that can set in after menopause, and can improve vaginal lubrication. Make sure to talk to your gynecologist about all herbal and natural remedies you use to combat your menopausal symptoms so that he or she has an accurate picture of your total health.

    Lifestyle Changes

    Exercise can help boost your mood and keep your body strong and healthy, massage can ease aches and pains and promote relaxation, and a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and soy can help you and your body cope with the new phase of life you have entered. Ask your gynecologist about things you can do to improve your quality of life.

    At WomanCare, our gynecologists can treat your menopausal symptoms with bioidentical hormones and other treatment options to help you achieve your maximum potential. We also offer prenatal care, so we can help you no matter what stage of life you are in. Call us at (847) 221-4700 today.
