Postpartum and Perinatal Nutrition Consulting and Meal Plans

I appreciate Christina’s thoroughness in the services she provides. There was zero guesswork of what meals I was getting. I really appreciate her food questionnaires and the weekly meal schedule she provided. Because of Christina, my husband and I were able to be better parents to our newborn daughter…by far the best gift we gave to our family.

You’ve heard of the phrase “eating for two” during pregnancy, but your nutritional needs are just as important after you deliver.

Think about it. Your body has grown another human for 40 weeks, labored to bring them into the world, and may still be providing nourishment through lactation. Not to mention caring for other family members if you have them!

You may struggle with feeling tired all the time, or perhaps your mood is swinging wildly. Mealtimes may feel like a chaotic guessing game, leaving you feeling frustrated and disconnected from your own body.

While sleep interruptions and hormone changes are natural after giving birth, good nutrition can help support you in feeling more nourished and in control.

That’s where nutrition consulting and meal planning can help!

I’m Christina Mensah, your postpartum meal planning expert!

Feeding people brings me absolute joy, and while I can only take a limited number of postpartum chef clients, I am thrilled to offer a more accessible option for nutritional support in that incredibly important period before and after birth.

You deserve to be nourished and supported as you recover.

Comforting nutrition is a must-have during the immediate postpartum period and working with Christina on a tailored menu was easy and ensured we liked everything she made. All of the meals were delicious and since she gave us the recipes we still make the same dishes a year later!

  • Chestfeeding
  • Mastitis
  • Postpartum depression
  • PCOS
  • Thyroid health
  • Immune support
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Hormone balancing
  • Inflammation

If you’re plant-based, gluten-free, or vegetarian, I can make sure your meals are balanced for postpartum nutrition while maintaining your dietary restrictions or preferences.

Christina came highly recommended by friends as a postpartum chef. I was able to tell Christina what kinds of meals I was hoping to receive (warming and nourishing with fall flavors for our fall baby). She took what I asked for a created an amazing meal plan for my family. Looking back on that first week home with a newborn, having Christina do this for us was one of the best investments we could have made during this postpartum period.
