Here's why we do, what we do

Our mission is to support and nourish new mothers through the critical postpartum period. We we love to hear from those who have experienced the warmth and support of their modern village, or supported someone with our book. Here’s just a collection of our favourites.

“Village for Mama is the most beautiful book dedicated to just that – shifting the mindset onto looking after the new mama, nourishing her, supporting her and holding space for her.”

When a baby is born, so is the mother. Unfortunately, the new mother's needs are often forgotten about, with all attention directed to the baby - but this way of thinking needs a mindshift, because if the mother's needs are neglected, well the whole *ship* goes down too! Village for Mama is the most beautiful book dedicated to just that - shifting the mindset onto looking after the new mama, nourishing her, supporting her and holding space for her. This book is filled with the most beautiful, nourishing recipes - designed specifically for the fourth trimester (and beyond) to help fuel and nurture new mothers in this special time. The postpartum meal cards are the BEST idea to give to family and friends ahead of the birth, who will want to help but just might not be sure how. I highly recommend this gorgeous book to all new mamas, it takes a village as they say, and this book will help you to cultivate and empower yours.'

“Leila’s work encapsulates this framework and offers userful and heart-felt ways of enhancing these principles.”

Leila’s work is not only beautiful, it also acknowledges the complex landscape of the postpartum time and presents support and solutions in an inspiring and accessible way. My main motto for maternal recovery in the postpartum time is: Deep Rest for 1 month, Deep support for 100 days and Priority on Sleep for 1 year. Leila’s work encapsulates this framework and offers userful and heart-felt ways of enhancing these principles.

I have followed your work with Village for Mama for some time and have read your beautiful book. I share it with all my couples as a recommended reading to prepare for the postpartum along with Dr Oscar Serrallach’s work. So thankyou for the incredible work you have done in the Postpartum space.

Doula clients' experiences

“The book is also wonderful so I highly recommend that too!

Hiring Leila was the absolute best decision I could have made for myself and my family over this postpartum period. I truly looked forward to her visits, and the nourishment and care I received has helped me come through my early postpartum period feeling empowered, energised, happy and healthy - a complete 180 from my first postpartum without her! I'm also feeling so inspired to continue cooking the types of beautiful healthy meals Leila has provided - they were all so delicious! I have already recommended Leila to all my pregnant friends and will continue to shout her praises to anyone who will listen! Lastly, the book is also wonderful so I highly recommend that too!
