If you’re here, you are an alchemist. Perhaps you are a birth worker, a hungry mother with a young child, or simply someone who loves to cook and is searching for their calling in life. I designed this course with you in mind. To support those looking to support others, to inspire other women to start businesses, to remind us how to feed ourselves, and how to feed each other. 



Whether you are pregnant, newly postpartum, a soon-to-be-grandmother, a seasoned grandmother, a father, a sister or a friend, learning about medicinal postpartum food (which is really comfort food) alters and shapes our cooking for years to come – not to mention our sense of well being, and our ability to show up powerfully for those that we love. Utilizing modern ‘super foods’ as well as traditional staples from our global ancestry, comfort food is the perfect antidote to a modern lifestyle.



I see a deep hunger for meaningful service in the world. We want to know that our lives have purpose, and that our time and energy will be received with gratitude, creating harmony and health for all. Today postpartum mothers need more support than any other time in their life. The reason is that the woman has just brought life into the world. And she is responsible for keeping that life safe, happy and thriving well into the teenage years. She is responsible for raising the next generation of humans. This is a huge task, and one that requires more care than we currently offer.


Meanwhile, in cultures all around the world it is traditional to pamper the mother after birth, to allow her to rest, to feed her nourishing broths, stews, soups and milks and replenish her vital life force. Mothers are massaged, oiled, steamed, warmed, lightly roasted and gently poached back to wellness. Traditional cultures know that when we take care of the mother, we take care of the entire community. In the west, we have forgotten these time worn traditions and thrown the baby (in this case, the mother) out with the bathwater.



This is where you come in. Mothers need us more than ever – the care takers, the lovers, the gentle healing hands, the weavers and the wisdom keepers. You are needed bh by Mother Earth and the mothers of tomorrow’s children. I am passionate about making sure that these world leaders are taken care of, and for me to do that really well, I need YOU. Your love, your hands, your heart and your thirst to take care of the ones who are taking care of so much, day in, and day out. I want to teach you to do what I am doing and for you to feed mothers all around the world, where my hands cannot reach.



The Postpartum Kitchen Online Apprenticeship will inspire and instruct you in the ways of postpartum medicinal foods and traditional care practices from around the world. You will receive recipes, rituals and tips for self care, nourishment and self soothing to weave into your daily life and offerings immediately. Learn how to take back postpartum and to take care of the mothers in your life who you love. When mothers feel supported, nourished and loved they are unstoppable. And when women are well, the world is well.

"Sophie is a guiding light in the maternal paradigm that is nourishing new mothers. Her knowledge and compassion for passing on the key principles of postpartum healing, and teaching ways to implement these practices into community is why this apprenticeship was so appealing to me. As a postpartum doula, I have renewed my commitment to servicing families during the 4th trimester, while bringing medicinal food to the forefront.” – REBECCA
"I am greatly inspired after participating in Sophie’s postpartum kitchen course! Her dedication to her dharma as a support and nourisher for mothers and beyond is apparent in her passion filled classes embodying a wide range of wisdom. As a long time healing foods chef myself, I felt my own fire reignite inside at the importance of this work. It is true, cooking is ritual and our American culture has much to learn about taking care of all mothers who birth life into this world. I appreciate Sophie being a pioneer in this realm and know I am richer for taking her course. Thank you Sophie!” – KRISTIN
"I want to thank Sophie for the opportunity to take part in this program. As a new mother myself, I have come to understand how critical postpartum is. It’s a vulnerable time with much-needed restoration for the family, especially the mother. Taking part in the apprenticeship program has allowed me to expand my knowledge of the power of healing foods. She covered postpartum nutrition and the value of self-care through energy and intention as a key component for all-around healing. I appreciated the nutrition content as well as the reminder to implement it in our daily lives as a way to stay in touch with the work. I’m looking forward to applying all that I have learned and continue the work in my community.” – ARLEN
"This is not a conventional class. Everything from the way it’s presented, to the knowledge shared and the heart being poured into is uniquely beautiful. It was not what I expected, it was so much more colorful and vibrant and full of ancient wisdom. Sophie is weaving it all together into a wonderfully sparkling tapestry, combining old traditions with modern needs. At the end you feel how your cup has been filled as much as your recipe repertoire. It was a blessing to take part in it!” – ASTRID
"The Postpartum Kitchen course has become a turning point for me. After struggling for years with depletion and exhaustion following the births of my daughters, and knowing intuitively that it was partially caused by the lack of rest and nourishment that I (and the majority of other women in the US) experienced postpartum, I am so grateful that I came across Sophie’s work and was able to learn from her. The wisdom and passion Sophie shares in this course helped me move forward in my own healing and helped illuminate a clearer picture of how I can use my story and the knowledge I have gained about postpartum nutrition and care into something that will serve the women in my community.” – MEGAN
"Sophie’s class gave me hope for women being supported and held as they are born into motherhood. This class was so much more than a class on amazing food, although it was that too, but on the deep importance of mothering the mother and on nourishing women from the inside out so that they can be empowered while they raise this planet’s future. This is a beautiful class and I am now addicted to ghee.” – KRISTA
"We just completed the Postpartum Kitchen Online Apprenticeship today and it has truly been such a transformational experience. Sophie has such a gift in how she shares her wisdom, learnings and experiences to help transform the postpartum journey for women globally. The group of women that came together through this apprenticeship is truly remarkable and it has been amazing to get to know them over these past six weeks. I have looked forward to our weekly classes and have found them invaluable in gaining better understanding into how we can most effectively nourish and nurture ourselves and others in the postpartum journey, rooted in wisdom from rituals, ceremonies and traditions around the world. My hope is that this continues to mobilize and transform the postpartum experience for women everywhere as it is so vitally needed. I embarked upon this apprenticeship pregnant myself, seeking to learn and grow as much as possible so I can apply these learnings in my own journey and share with as many others as I can. It has been so special to take this course within this context and I am forever grateful for the wisdom shared, knowledge gained, and the community that continues to grow through all Sophie continues to build through Milk + Seed. I highly recommend the Postpartum Kitchen Online Apprenticeship – both for those starting postpartum food delivery programs as well as those in the journey of motherhood. It has deepened and enriched my journey immensely and I truly can’t recommend it highly enough.” – ALISSA
"Starting out, I was super excited, literally doing a count down and now I feel part sadness that my Wednesdays will be missing some thing as from next week. This was my first meaningful step I took this year besides reading books and articles in participating in an online class. But oh what a journey it has been .....just so incredible to be so connected to a world of amazing women and world. Who I was 6 weeks ago is positively different to who I am today and will be in future. I feel enhanced, confident, aware and armed to start my journey in the postpartum evolution in my community, city and country. Thank you so much. Your generous spirit is truly a blessing to us and I pray that blessings will return ten fold and more to you, your work, your business and family.” – MONALISA
"What a special gathering the apprenticeship has been! I now feel that mothers dedicated to their healing is the highest act of love for their children, community and themselves. Sophie holds a container honoring the earth and ancient wisdom, while educating on nutrition in an incredibly engaging and thoughtful way. I can honestly say I left every session inspired and I am so grateful I had the opportunity to take part!” – SARA
“After being a first time mother, I realised how important it was to treat ourselves with the same love and dedication we give to our newborn, our partner, our family and friends. I remembered that Sophie was nurturing women (and saving humanity) through her medicinal kitchen and when she was sharing her wisdom in a postpartum apprenticeship course, I jumped at the chance to sign up! 

Sophie teaches from the heart because she draws from her personal experience and that’s what makes this course so easy to learn from. When you have someone so incredibly passionate about helping the sisterhood, you feel inspired to also pay it forward. She simplifies centuries of wisdom, theory and practice from around the world into six hourly zoom sessions and provides pre-reading material, recipes and ‘homework’ to help you understand yourself, the theory and get you to practice. 

If your heart has a calling to help women feel whole again after their rollercoaster ride called motherhood, make this course as part of your journey.” – CHANH
