This is absolutely the top recommendation for how to help a new mom, and with good reason. Days after giving birth, parents are stressed beyond measure just trying to figure out how to keep their new little human alive; they certainly don’t have much time to be spending on keeping themselves alive! This is your cue, friend. Bring over a meal. Bring over two. Bring over some extra to toss in the freezer. Homecooked, store-bought, or from the drive-thru, it doesn’t really matter. What does matter is that it’s fresh and nourishing and, ideally, easy to eat with one hand. Be sure to ask ahead of time about food allergies and religious and/or personal preferences.
