Kitchen Doula was founded in 2015 and has helped nourish thousands of families as they navigate postpartum, healing, or just the general busyness of life. While the ingredients used in every dish are of the utmost importance, Kitchen Doula also believes that the act of having homemade food brought to you feeds your soul, as well as your body.

Meet Our Founder

Tali is a mom, prenatal yoga teacher, chef, and farmer. She believes that wholesome, delicious food prepared simply, using fresh, high quality ingredients has the power not just to feed the body, but truly to nourish the heart and soul too. After working as a chef at Union Square Cafe in Manhattan and then on various farms in the Northeast, Tali knows the ins and outs of food, from seed to plate. Tali started Kitchen Doula in 2015 after hearing from friends that the food she cooked for them after their babies were born was the best gift they received. Tali had a feeling that other families could benefit from nourishing food during postpartum.

When Tali had her son in December 2021, she experienced this first-hand. Tali still remembers the goulash her mom made her the day she came home from the hospital—the same recipe her grandma had made for her mom when Tali was born. She could feel the hearty stew nourish her body and could feel the love it was prepared with nourish her too. Tali feels honored to help take care of families, whether in postpartum, or in moments of healing, with delicious and wholesome food.
