Pears, kiwis, and figs

As if your body isn’t going through enough after having a baby, you might also deal with constipation. In fact, researchers have found that 40 percent of pregnant women and 52 percent of postpartum women struggle with constipation. That’s one reason that having fiber-rich fruits in your diet is especially important. There are a few that stand out as being particularly high in the stuff, with half a cup of dried figs offering over seven grams of fiber, over two grams in a small kiwi, and over five grams in a medium-sized pear. But of course, if you prefer other fruits, you can’t go wrong in this highly nutritious food group after having a baby.
