Perhaps your baby has just arrived and you need some food assistance straight away. Perhaps your partner has returned to work after a week or so and you need some support. Maybe it's 8 weeks post-birth and you are feeling like you are in the swing of things but you are lacking inspiration in the eating department. That's where I come in!
Jacinda Oldale is the Foodoula. Inspired by the food she received from friends after the births of her children, she realized that other postpartum mothers needed support as well. In the tradition of the doula, Jacinda started Foodoula to help Vancouver's new mothers focus on what's most important: connecting with their new babies.read more
We most often think about food after the baby is born but my key concern was the last two months of pregnancy. Two teens in the house, husband and a tired body! And we all love to eat yummy meals. Dinner is family time. The answer? Foodoula for sure. So many options, great ideas and suggestions.
After the birth of my third child I remember feeling very overwhelmed. "How am I going to do all this?" I thought to myself. One of the things I felt truly helped me in those early days was the gift of food.
I was given a gift certificate for Jacinda's Foodoula services while I was pregnant. It was the best gift I could have received. I looked forward to Jacinda's arrivals - not only for the food - those early days on mat-leave with a new baby were often lonely, and Jacinda's big warm personality really brightened up my day.
