Other Parents Rave About Their Experience

Here's what some other parents have experienced in working with MamaKai during their pregnancy, birth and post-partum.

The most wonderful gift I received after having a baby was food delivery. Angie arrived with fresh meals and I have been thoroughly impressed ever since. Her meals are delicious, made with the finest and organic ingredients, and she is incredibly knowledgeable about providing a new and breastfeeding mom with nutritious combinations. She is extremely dependable and offers meal-planning guidance that has helped immensely. We continue to order meals from her and always look forward to seeing our fridge full from Angie’s touch! I feel very fortunate to have met her and appreciative for her wonderful help. I couldn’t recommend her more!

Holy Smokes! Your food is sooooo yummy! And I swear I feel healthier after I eat it. Thanks for making life easier and healthier and more joyous.

The nourishing, nutrient-rich food prepared with love by Angie enabled me to enjoy a healthy, complication- free pregnancy. I was amazed by how quickly my body healed after childbirth and postpartum. I continue to feel healthy and vibrant both physically and mentally. Also, Angie makes it so easy to eat well; by stocking my refrigerator with healthy food all I have to do is reheat it for a delicious meal in a matter of minutes. A healthy baby starts with a healthy mother and I am thrilled to have a baby who is calm and happy and sleeps well through the night!

I hired Angie to prepare meals for me during my pregnancy because I was concerned about getting proper nutrition. She spent hours chatting with me about nutrition, recommending books, and giving support in whatever inquiries I had. It was clear to me that she has a deep well of knowledge and I felt I could trust her advice and open-mindedness.

After working with me to decide on a menu, Angie delivered the most delicious and healthy food to my home. The meals have been a life saver and have eased my anxiety about my nutritional needs as an expecting mother. Beyond that, she is a sparkly and generous spirit that is just a joy to know.

As MamaKai transitions to offering free education on optimal health and community support, especially to new or growing families, I’d highly recommend being a part of the MamaKai community, attending Angie’s classes, using the Wellness Resources Library online and supporting her generosity through donation!

Two days before delivering my son I reached out to Angie in a panic about what my family and I were going to eat after returning home from the hospital. After being on bed rest for the final few weeks of pregnancy and eating take out, I was desperate for healthy home cooked meals. Angie was remarkable, responding immediately, even while away on vacation! Dedication!

It has been so nice to be able to quickly warm up a nutritious meal for myself, husband and teenage daughter. Angie provided me with meal suggestions, and stocked my fridge with fresh live food as well as prepared meals. In addition, she gave me a great recipe for tea to aid in digestion and support for breastfeeding.

My husband was most impressed that my body has returned to pre-pregnancy state very quickly (2 weeks) and I know it is because of the pure foods that I have at my fingertips. Most importantly, no stress about what to eat!

Angie was so kind and professional, yet almost like a best friend just stopped by to take good care of me. Angie has a wealth of knowledge about food and being a new mommy, what is best for my son’s breast milk and me! Thank you!

Besides the amazing food, Angie personally delivered our meals and the conversations and support was priceless. Her first delivery was the night that I went into labor, and she was so calm and courteous, coming into our home and adorning us with her delicious treats. I truly feel blessed to have had this kind of support in the first two months of my life as a mother. I learned a lot about what my body and my baby needs in terms of nutrition and I look forward to continuing to incorporate fresh, nutrient-dense foods into my diet to stay vital and strong for my little guy.
