Food is symbolic of love when words are inadequate. ~Alan D. Wolfelt

For healing to occur after birth, a mother must be able to rest and recover. Staying nourished is an integral and important part of that process. I find that preparation of healthy, nourishing food is one of the first things to fall off the list of priorities for many families. It’s a lot to manage with a new baby in the house! My perspective is that food is not only nourishing, it also creates a sense of community and nurturing. Most other cultures have systems built into their social structures that naturally supports this time of recovery. In China for instance, the first forty days after birth are referred to as confinement, or Zuo Yue, which translates to “sitting month”. Grandmothers, mothers, and sisters care for the new mother by cooking for her and taking care of her responsibilities, allowing her to focus only on resting and caring for her baby. This slower pace and time with her baby allow her to ease into who she is as a mother in a more organic way. It would be an honor to have the opportunity to nourish and nurture you during your own time of Zuo Yue.


The Food

I have thoughtfully crafted a menu that offers a variety of options to satisfy any palate. When possible, I love to incorporate fresh produce from my home garden.

The Process

When I come to your home, I want you to feel nourished, nurtured and cared for. I will work with you to create menus based on your dietary preferences. I can either batch cook meals for the week, or just make food for the day I’m there.
