Fills postnatal nutrition gaps for hair growth and wellness.
Formulated just for you with the nourishment your hair and body need most right now.
Featuring Synergen Recovery Complex®—a nourishing blend of breastfeeding-friendly botanicals that are clinically shown to target root causes of postpartum shedding and thinning by supporting whole-body recovery.
Nutrafol Postpartum was formulated for women to take after childbirth through their first year postpartum. We recommend taking the product for 3-6 months and beyond to support your recovery and replenish your body to promote better hair growth. If you are still breastfeeding after the first year, we recommend continuing with Nutrafol Postpartum. Once you’ve stopped breastfeeding, you can switch to Nutrafol Women.
Every woman's postpartum hair journey is different. After giving birth, estrogen and progesterone decline abruptly, while cortisol starts to increase drastically igniting a shift in the hair growth cycle. Normally, the hair growth cycle resets after 6-15 months, but Nutrafol Postpartum was formulated to support recovery through this transition for better hair growth with natural ingredients during the first year after birth. These natural ingredients address and manage underlying imbalances in the body during the first three months of taking the product and beyond.*

Nutrafol Postpartum was developed with an OBGYN using whole-food-sourced ingredients known to support lactation and to target root causes of postpartum thinning hair. All of our ingredients were chosen to help support recovery from nutrient depletion and the physical and emotional stress that can lead to thinning hair in postpartum women during a time when they are likely breastfeeding. They’re used within FDA-set doses for postpartum women with no ingredients found to be contraindicated in breastfeeding.1-2
They’re also bioavailable and free of gluten, soy, dairy, artificial additives, and GMOs. Even our packaging is BPA-free. As always, we recommend that you check with your doctor before starting any supplements.

During pregnancy, higher levels of hormones like estrogen help keep hair in a prolonged growth phase that would have normally graduated to the natural shedding phase of the cycle otherwise. So women get to enjoy less hair shedding during pregnancy.
After giving birth, hormones including estrogen and progesterone decline while cortisol increases, which breaks that prolonged growth spell and causes all those hairs to enter their overdue shedding phase at once.1 Most women report noticing this peak hair shedding 2-3 months postpartum.2
So while more shedding after giving birth can be normal short-term, we also know that issues like nutrient deficiencies, cumulative stress, and lack of rest can delay the time it takes our hair to get back into the growth phase. Our goal is to help support your whole body, including your hair follicles, with healthy ingredients to smoothly transition through this stage and get you back to growing stronger, visibly thicker hair as soon as possible.
