WHAT WE DO

Mother Me is a postpartum meal delivery service in Perth, WA. We make organic*, plant-based meals inspired by Ayurveda & Traditional Chinese Medicine with a western twist. Each ingredient is specially chosen to help nourish the new mother. We know how important it is for new mums to be well fed and looked after and how hard it is to find the time to do so when you have a new baby. We want to make this easy for new mums by providing a seamless, delicious and nutritious meal delivery service in Perth, WA.

Ayurveda & Postpartum

After the delivery of a baby, the digestive power of the mother is often diminished. A new mother’s digestive system is very delicate yet her needs are great.

Choice of foods and how well a mother digests her food can directly influence her milk as well as her rejuvenation, strength, and comfort. Ayurvedic food is typically warm, soft and easy to digest.

Mother Me is putting mums first and bringing awareness to the importance of supporting recovery after having a baby.

*Our ingredients are organic where possible.

OUR STORY

Rochelle Bacon

Founder of Mother Me

Hi, I’m Rochelle, the founder of Mother Me.

Like many wonderful things, Mother Me was born out of a struggle. The struggle I faced when I had my first child in September 2020. With no family in Australia, postpartum wasn’t quite how we had pictured it would be. It struck me how depleted I felt after the birth. I had prepared and frozen a whole load of meals prior to Isla’s birth but the last thing I felt like was a microwave defrosted meal. My body was craving nourishing and warming foods to help me recover, establish breastfeeding and support my mental health. I started to think about how I could help new mothers in similar situations and this is how the idea of Mother Me was born.

Since then I have worked with Alicia from The Golden A Ayurveda (see more on Alicia below) and completed the Postpartum Kitchen Apprenticeship from Milk & Seed to bring the most nourishing and delicious food to new mothers doors all over Perth every week.⁠

I hope you enjoy Mother Me and all that we have to offer, please reach out with any questions or just to say hi xxx
