As we approach Thanksgiving and all that yummy food, I wanted to take a moment to talk about the gift that food can be. One of the greatest gifts in my community of friends and mamas is the simple gift of food.
It is a really supportive community that honors mamas and their work to be done that just begins at birth. During that baby moon period after the baby's birth a complete gift for the whole family is for meals to come to the family.
It may still be too soon to stay for a long visit- often there is a cooler left out so mama and baby can rest, but if you have the opportunity to organize this for a friend- do it if you can. This spring/summer there has been an amazing little village of babies born in my tribe of friends and it is always a gift of love to take them some food- remember those vintage pillow cases make great gifty bags!
Here is a great site too to help with organizing a food train.
