"When it comes to becoming a mother, there is no back; there is only through." – Heng Ou, The First Forty Days
H O W I T W O R K S:
Once you have given birth, you have crossed a threshold. You are no longer the woman you were. Your focus is now honed to the miraculous and mystifying child who has been born from your body, and this time is exhausting, exhilarating, and completely magical.
Milk + Seed exists to serve a clear need in our community – to provide nourishing bespoke meals and elixirs for new mothers and their families – during one of the most wonderful and challenging times of a couple's life.
If you already experience anxiety, depressive tendencies, overwhelm, rapid mood swings, joint pain, digestive issues, rashes or skin conditions in your daily life pre-birth, I encourage you to explore what is available here at Milk + Seed, and if possible, to plan for an adequate intake of personally tailored nourishment for your prenatal and postpartum passage. Visit Workshops to learn more about 1-1 or group classes, or feel free to connect with me to discuss bespoke prenatal and/or postpartum nourishment plans.
Clients who select a postpartum delivery package may choose a minimum of five items from the seasonal menu for their due week. The entire menu is expected to supplement your normal eating habits and food preparation routines for approximately 25-40 days depending on family size. Placenta encapsulation and tincturing may be included for an additional $200-250. Please download the Full Winter Menu for full pricing details, available on the Postpartum Menu page.
I will schedule at least one meeting with you several weeks before your due date, during which time I can answer any questions, concerns, or desires about your upcoming transition. Together we will explore how I may best serve and support you and your newly expanding family. When you are ready, you or your birth team will contact me, and I will deliver the order I have been preparing, no later than 12 hours after your birth.
You are welcome to pick up your order in Meiners Oaks (five minutes outside of Ojai) to waive the delivery fee.
A deposit of 50% of your total order is due a minimum of 6 weeks before your due date.
