OUR APPROACH TO NUTRITION

There's no such thing as a stupid question.
I don’t know when I’ll start my postpartum meals. How do I schedule/change my first delivery date?
We know (bringing new) life is unpredictable. At checkout, we’ll ask you to leave an estimated date for your first delivery. We’ll check in the week prior to confirm. If you need to reschedule, text or email us with the subject “Postpartum reschedule” 5 days prior to your first scheduled delivery.
How does your plan differ for those who plan to breastfeed or not?
In postpartum, our snacks are made with galactagogue foods, but these are also healthy and beneficial if breastfeeding is not in your plan. If you are breastfeeding, you will need ~300 more calories, but no need to stress. This just means our meal plans may last longer or you may need more snacks - your body knows best.
What is the efficacy of the broth and tonics?
The broths and tonics adhere to a regimen along with your week of postpartum. They are traditional formulas that have been used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine to address the specific symptoms of the postpartum period, such as blood replenishment, swelling, mood and sleep.
What if I am past 6 weeks of postpartum, will I still benefit from the meals?
Of course! The postpartum period lasts longer than just 6 weeks and your body will benefit from the nutritional foundation of the meals.
Does this plan ship nationwide? If so, when does it ship?
Yes, this plan ships nationally. We ship out orders on Monday for delivery on Tuesday
How many days is the plan per week?
Our shipped plan is 5 days and includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, two snacks and our herbal broth and tonics. You are also able to add a family boost, for an additional set of meals.
