Made for Mothers Postpartum Soup is traditionally one of the first foods a new mum receives in Chinese homes, to honour their postpartum phase of healing. This dish is a delicious fusion of sweet red dates (or jujubes) and goji with a warming ginger infused chicken broth. Initially inspired by Heng Ou’s First Forty Days, my recipe has a few more botanicals in the broth to give it a deeply satisfying and nourishing mfm twist.
Handcrafted in small batches, we give careful consideration to the sourcing of everything in the MFM pot. We use organic produce and 100% pastured chicken which have been humanely raised by local, regenerative farmers.

Warm your soup by bringing it to a slight boil, stirring regularly, then immediately take it off the heat, cool and consume. I like to consume my Postpartum Soup as is. I also recommend a side of noodles if you would like to introduce some carbohydrate and/or are keen on stretching the jar from two meals to four.
