"Kellie was supportive and nurturing during my delivery, being very in tune to what I might need, but also when I might want to be left alone. The postpartum period was difficult for us as we had no family around. One thing that helped us tremendously were the meals that Kellie prepared for us. It was so nice to have healthy meals at the ready, especially to feed my toddler. From research and discussions I've had with other local mum's, I've realized how unique it is that Kellie offers these meals. It was a very nice addition to the support she provided to our family!!!"
Sarah, second time mum
"....It was great as I didn't need to worry about feeding myself and could focus on looking after my newborn. I highly recommend it. You get a lot of food which is delicious and nutritious."
