    Default Suggested food for intake after delivery at hospital (in India)

    Hi All,

    My due date is nearing and may be admitted in hospital anytime soon. Meanwhile, I've a query on what hospital foods are safe to take immediately after delivery. I'm not sure if my hospital provides any dish specific for post delivery wards and I would like to be prepared incase they dont.

    Since my mom is going to accompany me in the hospital, it is not possible for us to prepare food from home and take to hospital daily. I dont want her to take additional strain on top of taking care of me at the hospital.

    Is it ok to have just idly and rice with dhal for the whole period? Iam planning to avoid any form of oily food like dosai and spicy chutneys. Can I have a good course of milk and fruits to supplement the nutritional needs? Is it ok to take yogurt. Please help. I think on an average it would be 5-7 days of hospital stay and I would like to be prepared for this.

    Thanks in advance.

    hello Sasi,
    Congratulations on your preganancy.
    Well, you have a valid question. Yes, as moms usually accompany us during hospital stay, so can't really go home and cook food. Most of the maternity hospitals provide food as per post delivery demands.
    And you have to take food as per your gynic's advice. As for I know, there is no hard and fast rule any mode of delivery, you can have any foods but with less oil/spicy.
    Atleast in Normal delivery, you can have any food,
    But you need to be a bit cautious on foods which will impact baby's health like avoiding any cold items or heat generated items. As your mom will be there probably she will give you best guidence what to and what not to.

    Also in most of the hospitals, if its a normal delivery you can be discharged on 2nd day or max 3rd day.
    Dont be stressed thinking about it. Have a safe delivery And all the best!!!

    Hi Mrs.Sasi,

    All the best for your delivery. I asked my mom and she asked to avoid oily foods/spicy foods- As Priya mommy mentioned !!

    Soon after you deliver you will start to BF so take care of food items.




    Om Sai Namaha

    Dear Mrs Sasi,

    Congrats on your pregnancy. How is little one? He or she?

    If you are going to breast feed yr child thn its good to eat rice and cheese and drink milk. My midwife told me to eat rice cuz contain carbohydrate which will help you to produce more milk. Please avoid anything spices and oily.

    Enjoy yourself being new mum and take care.

    Cheers

    Hi Sasi,

    I second Priya Mommy. Your mother will be your best guide.

    If the delivery is normal you can have most of the items. Try and avoid potatoes and brinjal till your stitches heal. Also cold raw foods like salads and curds are best avoided. Mostly my mother told me that raw food will give you cold. I was advised to have apple. Usually we even avoid fermented food like idlis, dosas etc. but in my hospital they did serve all this and since I was nursing, I ate without bothering anything since I was very hungry and did not want to bother my mother like you mentioned for preparing food for me.

    I had a dietician and advised her about my diet in consultation with my mother. Its just four days you will be at the hospital there is no point making a fuss about it.

    There is no full stop to opportunities only commas!
