Restorative Food

Food is medicine during your Blue Night.

A Mother’s diet is a very important part of her Postpartum recovery and crucial for successful breastfeeding. Nutrient dense, warming food and drink can help expel excess water retained in the body during pregnancy and from the hospital IVs, aids in hormonal balance, uterine contraction, and lactation. Not to mention, proper nourishment can be an immense source of comfort. Mother should stay well hydrated and will need to eat more frequently to replenish nutrients, iron, and minerals lost during the birth and from milk production.

I offer complete food kits as an add-on option to Mother Care packages. Recipes are tailored to your family’s tastes and inspired by your favorite comfort foods – this is not the time to try a new diet or put restrictions on what Mother and family can enjoy. All restorative food is sourced locally when possible, organic, seasonal, delicious, and beautiful on the plate. Think wonderful aromas, a rainbow of colors, and edible flowers on top! Even the smallest snack during a Blue Night should be a total pleasure!
