It takes a village
The birth of a baby is the birth of a mother! What a postpartum Mommy needs the most is feeling security. A well-supported, comfortable body leads to a peaceful, calm mind in the fourth trimester. This is achieved through a meal train (usually setup by a friend) of warm, nutrient-dense, organic postpartum meals based on traditional standards for healing her spirit and body. The Ayurvedic and Oriental cultures and their grounding meals quell vata dosha, preventing dryness and a cold chill that is hard to leave the body and causes lasting issues through aging if it’s not nourished in postpartum.
Not many people know foods that help – or harm – a postpartum body & spirit
How you nourish yourself in postpartum – especially in the first forty days – impacts how you will age for the next 40 years. Eating nutrient-dense, anti-inflammatory meals during your 4th trimester can boost your metabolism, spark vitality and a better mood, ease digestion, and speed your healing all while jump-starting your milk supply. Or, the food you eat can bring lethargy, low milk supply, constipation, slow healing, and even postpartum depression.
As a woman, we feel guilty spending money on ourselves
This is the time to heal from a major life transition. After growing another human being for almost 10 months, what will you allow yourself to have, to become a strong mother for your family? Many people want to celebrate your expecting baby, showering your family with gifts. Why not include healing and nourishment for yourself one of them? A meal train, also known as a meal calendar, can be a lifesaver for your healing, and your partner will benefit too!
