    Comment:  Alicia Allison, Postpartum Chef. We had Alicia come to cook healing and nourishing food for us in our home once a week for the first 5 weeks postpartum. I am so glad we did this - I don't know how I would have gotten through that first month without our kitchen being stocked with some of the most delicious home cooked food I've ever had (and I am very particular about what I consider really good quality cooking). In addition to being a chef she is also an herbalist and her cooking is inspired by Ayurvedic traditions so it is healing in addition to delicious! And, since she is also a postpartum doula she was totally comfortable being in a postpartum home shortly after a birth so you don't have to feel awkward walking around half naked and breastfeeding or that your home is a mess, etc - she totally gets it and it is so comfortable to have her in your space - I loved the days she was here cooking because just the smells of the food was healing and comforting and her presence was caring and never intrusive. I can't recommend Alicia highly enough! Based on a June 2017 experience

    Comment:  hout-out to a really fabulous postpartum doula / chef Alicia Allison. Before the birth of my second I wanted to line up support mainly with food preparation and found Alicia. I just finished my first 40 days postpartum and it's made all the difference. She follows ayurvedic postpartum traditions and cooks delicious and nutritious meals. She's also a herbalist which means lots of healing herbal infusions to go with all the food! I can't recommend her highly enough!And a recent article featuring her work: http://gardencollage.com/heal/botanical-medicine/doula-alicia-allison-talks-postpartum-herbs-agency-womens-health/
