Postpartum Meal Delivery in Arizona
Have you considered the immense value of consuming good, clean food for your precious postpartum body? For the body of someone you love who has birthed and/or adopted a new miracle babe? Food is medicine in every single Postpartum Medicine Tradition around the world!
Postpartum bodies, lives and families matter.
Food as medicine
We have written about it countless times: the postpartum period can be challenging for new mothers, parents and partners too! It is especially tough when someone has just given birth and does not have the essential resources needed, like a good support system and accessible meals.
After carrying a baby for nine months and going through the demanding-yet-rewarding marathon that is childbirth, your body needs time to rest, recover, heal, and of course bond with your new baby. The emotional toll of waiting for baby as an adoptive parent? That is equally as valid a path. One that requires nuture and support from outside your home. Because holding, cuddling (skin to skin!) and simply being present can help foster a strong connection that will last a lifetime.
During this time, maintaining a healthy postpartum diet is crucial in order for the entire family to thrive. Traditional wisdom advises consuming warm, nutrient-rich, and easy-to-digest foods, such as soups, stews, and broths. These foods can help to warm the body and reignite the digestive system, which often slows or shuts down during childbirth.
For folks who haven’t given birth, these foods are so grounding for you too!
Are you prepared for postpartum?
In preparation for postpartum, it helps to cook and freeze a variety of meals in advance, using high-quality, whole-food ingredients. These postpartum freezer meals can be a lifesaver during the early days when exhaustion and fatigue are common. The last thing a new mom or family wants to worry about is cooking elaborate, time-consuming meals.
The best postpartum meals are:
- Warm, soft, easy-to-digest
- Clean, nutrient-dense
- Soups, stews, porridge, broths, congee.
There are also some foods we don’t recommend in postpartum.
Postpartum foods to avoid:
- Cold, hard, dry, crunchy, raw
- Highly-processed, non-organic
- Cold drinks/smoothies, chips, raw veggies
