Alfalfa will greatly help her keeping weight on and getting the necessary protein for producing milk foto her baby.
Since the laminitis was induced by the retained placenta, I wouldn't worry too much about the diet( not saying that you should let her pig out on sweetfeed and grain, tho).
She needs nutrients to raise that foal, and beetpulp will not provide what she needs. Look into a mare& foal feed, which baby can share and later on keep eating. Maybe not Omolene, since it contains lots of grains, rather something like Nutrena Life Design Mare&Foal.
She will peak at milk production now, after baby is 3 months, it'll get less, but baby eats more solids also.
