Maternity Leave episode 3: Mamma Qi

Food, glorious food! Am I right?

Next to getting enough rest, the most important way to heal and restore vitality during the postpartum period is eating really good food. Nourishing meals made of seasonal whole foods prepared specifically for a woman who has just given birth. When you’re breastfeeding, good quality nutrition becomes that much more vital.

As a mother and a postpartum doula I know first-hand how difficult it can be to eat well and regularly while caring for your new baby.

Often when I come to a client’s home and ask “When was the last time you ate?” I hear, “I can’t remember”.

I know, I’ve been there. The simple task of making toast can seem completely unmanageable between diaper changes, feeding and trying to figure out how the heck the hospital nurses got such a nice tight swaddle.

Enter Mamma Qi, a brand new postpartum meal delivery service. Nourishing meals inspired by the principles of traditional Chinese medicine delivered twice a week right to your door! Speaking as a mother it does not get better than this!

Not only are the founders of Mamma Qi skilled acupuncturists and doctors of Chinese medicine they’re also some of the nicest, sweetest women you will ever meet.

I hope you’ll enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed talking with them. If you are lucky enough to live on the west side of Los Angeles and are expecting a baby, do yourself a favor and call them!

You can find Mamma Qi here.
