The recipes are provided by postpartum doulas. They are easy to make and nourishing for a new mother. The book lies flat when opened for easy use while preparing the meal and there is room on each page for notes about what the family liked best or any changes made to a recipe and room at the end of each section to add your favorite family recipe in each category. There are also quotes from parents about what they learned from their mother or father that they hope to pass on to their children. This cookbook makes a unique gift that can be passed down the child.
