Be Prepared for Postpartum Cooking Challenges
Most of us wonder what challenges postpartum will bring us and how we can make the transition easier. In my childbirth classes we talk about postpartum preparation, and one of the biggest things we can do to prepare is to make sure our new family is fed – enter freezer meals for new moms and dads!
During postpartum we want to do as little work as possible so it’s best to cook before hand. You’ll be happy you did! I’ve had parents-to-be ask me, “how can cooking a meal be that difficult?” They wondered if postpartum meal planning is really necessary. Yes! It is! A new little person will bring serious sleep deprivation, and having a meal that only needs heating up will feel like a miracle!
