I'm Kheyla, it's nice to meet you
When I became pregnant I had so many preconceptions about how motherhood would be, about how naturally everything would come to me, specifically about being able to breastfeed. However, when the time came, I went through an incredibly difficult time producing enough milk for my baby.
I didn’t realise the various processes that affected breastmilk production and I found myself literally on the verge of falling into postpartum depression. I felt incredibly isolated, even with my partner attentively by my side.
I struggled, trapped by the feeling of failure in my new role of mum. After some research, I was able to persevere enough to breastfeed my son until he was 2 years old.
After such an ordeal, I began thinking about all the women going through a similar situation on their own. Constantly confronted with how wonderful motherhood is (which it is!) without room for things to not be so perfect or ‘natural’.
"I wanted to open up the dialogue around being a mother, to help create a space for mothers to be authentically themselves and not be judged or guilt tripped for it."
Mother Nature’s Recipes was created to support mums in a more personal, multi-dimensional way and allow mother’s to practice the importance of self-care.
As an avid herbal tea drinker, especially throughout my pregnancies, in 2017 I set about creating a line of herbal teas in a true bid to support mums throughout various stages of motherhood. All of the blends were created alongside a Herbalist to ensure the ingredients used are 100% safe for each stage of motherhood, but also have optimum health benefits for yourself and your babies.
Mother Nature’s Recipes is a true labour of love, and I only hope that is felt with every cup that is brewed in an ode to your wellbeing.
