Why SENA loves it
Heng Ou began Motherbees to teach women how to nourish and heal their bodies so that they can bring themselves fully to the raising of their families. As the author of The First Forty Days, Heng poured her knowledge of the forgotten art of caring for a new mother into its pages and has been a necessary resource for all mothers ever since. The First Forty Days illustrates the Chinese practice of zuo yuezi—a period of postpartum confinement in which a woman remains at home focusing on healing and bonding with her baby - as well as provides simple recipes to truly nourish the mother through the power of food. She has also crafted the best supplements for healing with her Jujubes and Mama Omega-3s.
As a mother herself, Brittany understands the importance of not only bonding with your new babe, but also in practicing self-care. A Mother is the heart of her family and her health and strength only creates a stronger and more healthy family.
