What is ayurveda and why are your meals based on these principals?
Jenna completed a ayurvedic postpartum doula course which sparked her interest in this healing modality. Ayurveda is a 5000 year old health system, it is a living science, one that has evolved to match the needs of the individuals it serves. The idea that we are not what we eat but what we digest is extremely important notion to consider in life but specifically speaking it resonates on all levels when talking about the postpartum womans recovery after birth.
What are some of the ingredients you use?
OUr meals are mainly vegetarian which works inlign with the ayrvedic principle of eating foods that are easily digestable. Animal protien is harder to digest, taking precious energy from the Mother.
I have special dietary requirements. Can you cater to them?
Short answer is Yes.
I want to get the New Mumma in our life a gift voucher, how do I do that?
We really know how busy life can be for everybody. Sometimes providing the special Mumma to be in your life with the support that you want to can be a really hard task, made so much more difficult when you are looking after a family of your own.
How does the menu work?
Meals 4 Mummas provide a set menu based on the stage of postpartum our Mumma’s are at. This allows us to provide you with the specific nutritional support your body needs at any time throughout your postpartum. Our meals within the first 2 weeks tend to be entirely vegetarian, once again with the main focus being on easy digestion for our Mumma’s. As the weeks progress proteins can be added. In saying this though, please chat with us if you absolutely cannot live without your protein and we will discuss with you our “ slow cooked” options.
