What Are The Benefits Of Specific Prenatal And Postpartum Foods?
We understand firsthand how challenging proper nutrition can be during the childbearing year. This is why I created TRIBU. TRIBU is the Spanish word for TRIBE. We are tribal by nature and thrive when we have the loving support of our community. Women have an innate need for the support of their village and, this nurturing care is what we provide. Nutritious food is just as important as our need for fresh air, clean water and REST! We want to help you heal, nest and feel your best before and after giving birth. Our meals are purposely designed to support your physical recovery, energy levels, hormone balance, milk supply, and emotional wellbeing. At TRIBU, we are passionate about supporting your prenatal and postpartum nourishment and wellness journey. Everything we cook is made with the highest quality whole food ingredients and LOVE!
Our Holistic Nutrition Philosophy Is Based On Food As Medicine
We believe that the postpartum period, AKA the 4th trimester, is the time for the new mother to bond with her baby and for baby to comfortably integrate into the family. The often-overlooked postpartum period is a critical time for nutritional replenishment and physical healing. Our postpartum meals include snacks, smoothies, broths and soups which are more easily digestible and improve absorption of essential minerals and vitamins that the body needs to repair, restore, and fortify after birth or illness. Fresh and local produce are the foundation of our foods, supplying essential minerals, vitamins, protein, fat and collagen to boost energy, heal the connective tissues of the body, and support healthy metabolism. Our plant-based menu is mostly alkaline and recipes are thoughtfully developed to assimilate seamlessly into the body.
If you are breastfeeding, our postpartum meals provide measurable benefits for your milk supply and quality. Our postpartum meals made in small batches and include known galactagogues (ingredients which support milk supply and quality), including flax seeds, oats, tahini, hemp seeds, specific herbs and more! However, the most important ingredient for an abundant milk supply is a well-rested and cared for mother! We also avoid ingredients that could be associated with colic or sensitivities for breastfed babies, including cruciferous vegetables, garlic, and most major allergens. And YES! Can anyone eat the lactation cookies. Dads, sisters, cousins, friends and grandpop can eat them. They are delicious and will NOT make you spontaneously lactate, Promise! They happen to be a toddler favorite!
