Replenishing your body with nourishing and healing postpartum meals after having a baby can do wonders for your recovery. From balancing hormones, to aiding in breast milk production and refueling your system, food truly is the medicine a new mama needs, and nobody understands this more so than Stephanie Matthias, a wonderful Los Angeles-based postpartum doula.
I had the pleasure of working with Stephanie after delivery my baby girl and I can’t say enough about how great she and her work are, and how much her healing foods helped nurture me through a tender time. I teamed up with Stephanie to share a handful of her recipes so that all you new mamas can make them yourself (or send them to family and friends to make them for you!) to aid in your postpartum journey. Each recipe is fairly simple and made with real intention. Click through to learn more about why she crafted each of these postpartum meals and how to make them yourself:
