What makes FYC different?
Put simply, the food! Each FYC Mama has exclusive access to a nourishing postpartum specific menu, curated by biochemists - Dr Renee White and Dr Micka Bertucci. With more than 16 years in health and medical education, we understand how to replenish, restore and support you in the thick of motherhood.
Cooked fresh in your home, our evidence-based menu is backed by science and designed to nourish and strengthen you during the Fourth trimester. As the weeks progress, the menu is curated to your specific needs with a focus on nutrient-dense foods to replenish micro and macronutrients lost during pregnancy and birth. Our meals are warm, restorative and assist in promoting faster recovery and better feeding outcomes for you and your baby.
Access to Research briefs provided by Dr Renee White and Dr Micka Bertucci.
Have a question about infant behaviour, a product formulation or nutritional needs - but don't have time to slip down a Google Rabbit Hole? We will prepare a complete, non-bias literature brief condensing all you need to know in either a single page written or recorded video brief.

What to expect with an FYC Doula?
In each 3 hour session we make you delicious nutrient-rich meals, fold that stack of washing, settle your baby while you rest and lend a non-judgmental ear when you've had a tough night.
We provide feeding guidance, emotional and practical support, head/shoulder rub, light housework, birth debrief and/or baby-wearing while you rest.
No Hidden Costs! We take the mental load off you Mama. No extra invoices, shopping lists or missing ingredients.
Our main meals may include: Hunter chicken stew; Slow-cooked pork tacos + pineapple salsa; nourishing ginger fried rice. At least one vegetarian/vegan option each week.
Our sweeties may include: Choc + Goji lactation cookies, gooey chocolate brownies, pear + pecan loaf. Check these out below.
We source premium quality ingredients, organic where possible. In each postpartum session your FYC Doula will prepare a nourishing main meal (3-4 serves) and snack (4-5 serves) from our FYC Mama Menu. All meals included in package (no scary invoices later!)

"Thank you Micka. Being a mum to a newborn and 2yr old, life got crazy busy literally over night! Having some pre made meals really took the pressure off, it meant I could focus on the kids and also know I was eating nutritional food, which helped keep my energy up and also aid healing"

"Renee’s delicious meals and snacks were exactly what I needed - body, mind and soul. She is wonderful company with just the right amount kind, experienced and educated chat for a new mum while she quietly Mary Poppinses your home and family! I love the book she offers to her clients which resonated strongly with me. Fill Your Cup is a real saviour for the modern postpartum women - I only wish I’d discovered them sooner!"

"I feel grateful to have found Renee! Her deep knowledge and willingness to listen made me feel like I had a friend at my side and chef in the kitchen. The lactation biscuits are a favourite of mine - so good, you just know how much love has gone into them. At a time when I was very vulnerable, it was an immense relief to have her by my side"
