Why we do this
Food is a cornerstone of a New Mummas well-being. The way she is treated and cared for after giving birth requires the same reverence of that when she is pregnant, yet our western society doesn't do postpartum well.
Meals 4 Mummas was born out of the need to take better care of our Mummas and make this service affordable for all Mummas to help her recovery after going through undoubtedly the biggest natural physical transformation possible.
“After birth there’s a sacred window of time. A time for complete rejuvenation of a woman’s physical, mental and spiritual health. A time for deep, extended bonding with her newborn. The first 42 days after birth set the stage for her next 42 years.”

Jenna is a birth, postpartum and end of life doula and runs The Seed Collective, a holistic well-being consultancy specialising in in-home support services when going through a life transition. It has been throughout her experience of working with families that her love and passion for the postpartum space really took shape and of course her own very different experiences for each postpartum and the complexities that come with the adjustment period with more babies but then who is caring for the Mother when there is so many other little people that need to be cared for? Jenna has studied nutrition for fertility, pregnancy, breastfeeding and postpartum and uses all of this knowledge along with combining various traditional postpartum methods and foods into designing the menu for Meals 4 Mummas. Jenna has made it her mission to educate and share knowledge on what the postpartum period brings and how to optimise healing, bonding and breastfeeding after giving birth. Jenna is married to Allister who grew up in Country, NSW before attending boarding school in Sydney and together they have Willow, Riley and Micah.

ABOUT OUR FOOD
Meals 4 Mummas gives time and energy back by making nutritious meals delivered to your door. A new Mummas time is precious, she needs meals that support her healing after giving birth, breastfeeding journey and bonding with her precious newborn. Our menu has been created with an Ayurvedic approach of supporting a postpartum woman.
Our food is made with love on the Central Coast, NSW. We use organic produce where we can and make our own bone broths, vegetable stock. We source our produce from local farmers on Central Coast, NSW. We care about what goes into our Mummas bodies. Our packaging is recyclable and BPA free.
Ayurveda considers not just what is nutritious but was is digestible and sustainable. This is the first principle of Ayurveda. If you are eating nutritious food but are unable to digest what you are eating it is not benefiting you and a newborn Mummas digestion is sluggish from pregnancy and giving birth. She needs specific ingredients to support her healing after giving birth, breastfeeding journey and bonding with her baby.
It is our mission to make our meals accessible to all postpartum women. We know the reality is that this is not always possible which is why we have our 'giving back' program. Please fill in the form below and we will get back to you in 7 working days.
