Nourishment For Every
Stage of Motherhood

Pregnancy and postpartum are some of the most exciting phases of life. Most exciting, and most exhausting! So much is happening physically, hormonally, emotionally, and mentally and what you eat can really impact how you feel. Nutrient-dense foods are essential for supporting the whole perinatal process, from growing a baby, to healing after birth and promoting milk production if you are breastfeeding. And partners need nourishment too, which is why most of our menu items are at least 2 servings so everyone in the family can feel well cared for. The foods to focus on during postpartum include:

  • Soft, easy-to-digest foods like soups and stews

  • Protein and iron to rebuild your strength (blood, tissue) from grass-fed and pasture-raised meat (organ meats are especially good), beans (ideally soaked and cooked with kombu to increase digestibility!), and dark leafy greens

  • Collagen from bone broths and braised meats to rebuild skin elasticity and joint health

  • Warming spices like turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon

  • Ingredients that promote milk production like oats, Brewers yeast, flaxseed, almonds, and apricots
