Did you know that a woman's body goes through the most change after she gives birth (rather than during pregnancy)?
Makes sense now that the body is trying to completely re-adjust in a very short space of time and add to that the need to look after and feed your tiny child. No wonder so many new mums suffer from depression and other coping issues.
I recently met a doula (support person for pregnancy and labour) who wants to put her knowledge into a book. She believes that one of the key ways to heal a woman's heart is through her stomach.
So she's creating a cookbook designing to guide a woman week by week with her changing dietary needs to support her system, all backed up by ancient ayurvedic (indian health) tradition.
So I'm going to photograph and design the book (yay! yum!)
but firstly we're doing the crowd funding route - on Pozible!
Check out the film I made about the project. It gives you a little taste for the yumminess to be found when we create it.
(and may I add that the stew and chai were divine!! I look forward to devouring more as I shoot...)
I'd greatly appreciate your support (get a copy for $50 (rrp $75!) or share with possible new mums and related health practitioners.
