Nutrition for Natal Care
This post is sponsored by Rainbow Light. I only work with brands I love, so thank you for helping me to support them.
October is Non-GMO Awareness Month, which aims to bring awareness to Non-GMO issues and to help people transition towards a safe, healthy food supply for future generations. One brand that is helping lead the way in the Non-GMO space is Rainbow Light.
I have always been a big proponent of supplement usage. Our diets nowadays just don’t give our bodies all of the nutrition that we need. That being said, our bodies need different nutrition during different stages of life. Now that we’re looking to try for our third (!!!) I want to make sure my body is in peak performance mode to create a tiny human. When I heard that Rainbow Light’s Vibrance For The First Thousand Days line was Non-GMO, I had to try it!
Rainbow Light is an all-natural supplement company that you can find in many of your natural food stores country-wide. They’re known for their clean and high quality ingredients, and put every product through rigorous testing to provide the safest and most natural supplements for your body. I was already excited about working with this company, but when I realized their passion for maternal and neonatal health, it took my excitement to a whole new level. Rainbow Light has created the first multivitamin line customized for each stage of pregnancy, supporting a mother and baby from pre-conception to toddlerhood, Vibrance For The First Thousand Days. The first thousand days between a mother’s pregnancy and her child’s second birthday offers a unique window of opportunity to shape a healthier and brighter future. Here’s a breakdown of the importance of each:
- Preconception: supports moms’ immune health with zinc and vitamin c.
- Trimester 1: eases moms’ nausea with a unique ginger extract, and provides an absorbable form of folate to support babies’ neural tube health.
- Trimester 2: constipation relief for mom with magnesium, and support for healthy brain development for baby.
- Trimester 3: more digestion support with calcium for mom, as well as support for healthy brain and neural tube development for baby.
- Post-natal: support for breastfeeding with natural ingredients like organic fenugreek, as well as lutein for eye strength and brain development for baby.
- Nutristart Plus: for baby 0-24 months. This supports healthy nervous system growth.
If ALL of that isn’t enough to share my excitement over this brand, then you’ll love to learn about their extracurriculars. So far, since 1994, they’ve donated 40 million prenatal tablets worldwide, including to programs in Haiti, Kenya, and other areas of the developing world. Rainbow Light has also partnered with other companies like Vitamin Angels to bring infant and child nutrition to impoverished communities. If that doesn’t show their heart for maternal and infant care, I don’t know what does! Have you tried Rainbow Light?
Yep! I have been taking my prenatals religiously, however this back pain that I have now (insanely excruciating)… Has actually distracted me so much that I haven’t taken all of them in the last 2-3 days but I need to get back on it ASAP as I am 32 (almost 33) weeks!
So excited for you that you’re planning to expand your family! You guys are already soo cute, congrats!
So excited for this happy announcement! Now, are you up for the challenge of creating a third baby as friggen cute as Henley or Hudson?!
This is such an awesome idea! I love that it changes throughout the pregnancy and after because your needs change, too. I had such a hard time taking prenatal vitamins, they made me so sick that I didn’t take anything. I wish I had known about Rainbow Light!
I LOVE this idea so much. I has quite the hard time with my prenatals and im glad they are different ways to take them now.
We reallly try to stay away from anything GMO related and these sound like such a great option for our family!
Though I am certainly way past this stage of my life, I have many friends who are becoming first-time moms and are looking for the best way to keep both themselves and their babies healthy! I will definitely recommend Rainbow Light to them!
I remember those days, I did stick to my prenatal vits. I am glad I did, my kids are doing well 22 and 13.
It’s so important to monitor your vitamin I take at every stage of life. These look like such a wonderful product!
Interesting that it is a powder. I take gummy multi vitamins and a b12 and they have definitely made a huge difference.
awesome idea to get on a natal care multivitamin. I like that they are non gmo. I will be sharing this with my wife.
I love how many options there are with these vitamins!! And that they are giving back to those who may not have access to them
I love natural products. I do not see myself needing any pre-natal vitamins in the future, but I will for sure check out the brand to see what else they have to offer.
Always good to be self aware when it comes to nutrition and self care. Also, like that fact that products are natural too – a big plus for sure xx
These sound like great products for pregnancy! I will pass this info along to a few friends of mine that are expecting!!
Rainbow light sounds amazing! I definitely don’t take good enough care of myself as I should when it comes to taking supplements and things of that nature! Maybe I’ll add this to my list!
I know vitamin supplements can be very useful. I haven’t seen these available locally though. I will have to see if I can find them at my health food store.
