Quick Food for New Moms

If you’re looking for a gift for a new mom, I have just the thing for you.

Thief River Falls native Lisa (Ault) Jost recently  published her first cookbook, "The Doula’s Cookbook for New Moms: Ideas and Recipes for a New Parent, Busy Parent or Doula."

Jost, who attended UND, is a doula (a woman trained for labor, birth and postpartum care of a mother offering continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother and her family). Her book offers more than 100 easy-to-prepare recipes and ideas, organized by meal type, and are put together to ensure efficiency and ease of use. The recipes are short and simple to make, according to a press release.

Says Jost: “It became evident that I needed to streamline mealtimes both at my home and with my clients,” she said. “Meal ideas and preparation time can be a real issue when your family is hungry now.

“My belief is that every new mother deserves to have an advocate and be taken care of to ensure a positive birth and postpartum experience,” Jost added. “After working with some of my postpartum mothers, I realized it would be convenient to have this collection of meal ideas in my bag to help them decide what to eat.”

According to the release, Jost is a birth and postpartum doula with Everyday Miracles, a Twin Cities based nonprofit agency that provides pregnancy and labor support as well as prenatal education in a supportive, non-judgmental community for at-risk pregnant.

Jost lives in Maple Grove, Minn., with her three children. Her husband is serving in the U.S. Navy Reserve.

The cookbook is available online at major bookstores including Amazon.com, BarnesandNobles.com and through her publisher, PublishAmerica.com.

  1. Jeff, I wish I’d heard of this book before going to the baby shower a few weeks ago. Good gift suggestion.
