We do our homework. See the research behind our Postnatal Vitamins.
Postnatal Vitamins were thoughtfully formulated by experts (who are also moms).
Our high-quality postnatal multivitamins were carefully developed using peer-reviewed studies that reflect the latest research in postnatal nutrition. The formula development was led by our Medical Advisor and board-certified OBGYN, Dr. Kenosha Gleaton, and an award-winning registered dietitian-nutritionist and specialist in fertility, Lauren Manaker, RD.
Our postpartum supplement was formulated to meet increased needs during lactation and support baby’s development.‡
Our postpartum multivitamin formula was formulated to fill key postpartum dietary needs and can help meet the the higher daily values of choline, selenium, and iodine needed for breastfeeding moms post-pregnancy and during lactation.
Natalist Postnatal Vitamins were specifically formulated to support breast milk quality and help meet the nutritional needs of breastfeeding babies:
- A great deal of the brain’s capacity is shaped before the age of three years. Natalist Postnatal Vitamin was formulated with key nutrients to help support baby’s brain development and brain function.‡
- With 400 mg of choline bitartrate, Natalist Postnatal Vitamin helps support normal and healthy brain development in babies when taken during the first 1,000 days of life.‡
- Includes 200mg of plant-based DHA to support baby's brain development.‡
Formulated to support and nourish breastfeeding moms during their postpartum journey.
We are committed to manufacturing excellence. Every batch of vitamins is tested for product integrity.
All of our vitamins are made in an FDA Registered and Inspected Facility, which meets or exceeds FDA 21 CFR 111 guidelines.
In addition to testing the raw material components of our vitamins to ensure their purity and accuracy, we also test each batch after it is produced to ensure final product integrity and quality. Testing includes a chemical analysis to ensure accuracy, a microbial analysis (salmonella, E. coli, yeast, and mold) and a heavy metals test (including arsenic, cadmium, and lead).
Our postnatal vitamins are free of artificial and synthetic dyes. Additionally, our postnatal vitamins are manufactured under strict procedures to ensure there is no cross-contamination during manufacturing and storage.
Non-GMO, but that doesn’t really matter.
Along with 88% of polled scientists, Natalist believes that the majority of genetically modified foods are safe. That said, we also believe that bioengineered ingredients should be clearly labeled so that consumers can make an informed purchase decision. Transparency is essential in building trust between brands and consumers. Our products clearly state if they do or do not contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
Here’s some of the research that went into making Postnatal Vitamins.

Why should I take a postnatal supplement instead of your prenatal vitamin after delivery?
Our postnatal multivitamin is specifically formulated with choline bitartrate, DHA, selenium, iodine, vitamin D, and vitamin A to support both mother’s breast milk quality and baby’s development, whereas our prenatal vitamin is formulated with key nutrients support specific nutritional needs during pregnancy.‡
Should I take the Postnatal Vitamin if I’m not breastfeeding?
We specifically formulated this multivitamin to support the nutritional needs of breastfeeding women and their babies. If you are not breastfeeding, speak with your healthcare provider within the first three weeks postpartum and discuss continuing your prenatal vitamin routine.
Why is magnesium not included in this formula?
A board-certified OBGYN and a registered dietitian-nutritionist assisted in the development of our postnatal multi formula; because we were unable to fit magnesium into the formula while keeping a daily intake at three capsules, we made room for key ingredients. However, we offer magnesium in our Magnesium Plus drink mix.
