Welcome to parenthood and all it has to offer!
My name is Lisa Lu, I am a mother of two, an Ontario registered practical nurse, and a caterer, specializing in Nurturing New Moms through prenatal classes, postpartum meal plans with a traditional Chinese flare and a new mother’s support group. I started caring and cooking for new moms in 2012. Additionally, I do offer the option for a home visit if needed.
Originally from China, I love food and cooking. I also love growing vegetables and herbs. I have a keen interest and knowledge about traditional Chinese medicine as my grandfather is a famous Chinese doctor and taught me how to incorporate these healing herbs in my cooking.
When I had my first child, I struggled with newborn care and breastfeeding. I wasn’t getting much sleep and rest, not to mention cooking. I wish there was food, or someone preparing meals for me, so I could rest and heal. Based on my own personal experience and with facilitating positive postpartum recovery in mind, I started to cook for new moms. My neighbour was my first client.
Over the last 6 years, I’ve helped hundreds of women and received very encouraging comments. I have enjoyed cooking and watching new parents and their babies grow. Now with a new and larger location, more new moms will benefit from the optimal combination of healthy delicious food, Chinese herbs, and support classes.
