Cooking is without a doubt one of my favourite things to do for the families I support.
There is so much that I do as postnatal doula that is helpful and filling a new family's with a fridge or freezer full of delicious food that is also nutritious is at the top of the list.
I advocate eating lighter meals in the beginning. Heng Ou explains in her book The First Forty Days:
'After the energetic expenditure of birth and almost ten months of of having your abdomen organs pushed into a tighter space, your digestion is considered to be a little slower and weaker than normal, so it's time to eat gently for a while before back into high gear.'
When you're ready and feeling like something a bit more filling, this fish pie is great.
