The first forty days is an almost six-week period, a critical time for rest and recovery, and for a new mama to bond with her newborn baby. With most postnatal care ending just six weeks after birth, many women are not afforded the luxury of being able to focus on their own nourishment and wellbeing while also caring for and nurturing their newborn baby. For this reason, many new mamas can begin to suffer the effects of nutrient depletion which can contribute to exhaustion, moodiness, digestive discomfort, low energy levels, and poor recovery.
As new mamas, we worried about milk supply, saw changes in digestion (hello, constipation), had to reimagine our relationship with sleep, and were hungry around the clock. With that in mind, Agni created their Mama Box with love and nourishment for new moms everywhere. These goods are intended to refill mama’s cup and support her through what can feel like endless feedings, night wakings, and fussy hours.
Agni created their Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie for every new mama who has ever worried about their milk supply. Made with oats, flaxseed, and brewer’s yeast, ingredients specifically chosen to support breast milk production, these bite-sized morsels of deliciousness, offer key nutrients for mom’s recovery and baby’s growth making them the perfect one-handed nursing companion for that insatiable appetite.

Promoting Restful Sleep
Night wakings, round-the-clock feedings, and adapting to the schedule of your new nocturnal roommate can leave any new mama feeling exhausted. Agni’s Tulsi Cinnamon Tea is blended with adaptogenic herbs ashwagandha, Shatavari, and tulsi to support your natural circadian rhythm, and promote restful sleep. As an added bonus nettle, fennel, and oat straw support breast milk production for nursing moms.
Providing Gut Health and Digestive Support
With digestion slowing in the first few days and weeks following birth, it’s important to support your gut with nutrient-dense foods that promote gut health and support regular elimination aka pooping! Agni’s range of cookies and seasonings includes hemp, flax, and chia seeds to help prevent constipation. While the herbs in their teas are designed to ease digestive discomfort in the fourth trimester.
Invites a New Routine into your New Normal
Cookies at 5 AM and a cup of tea at midnight? The fourth trimester is a time when the traditional 9-5 rules do not apply, as you’ll likely find yourself awake throughout the night and sleeping (or resting) when you can – often during the day. With cookies that are designed to be consumed whenever you’re needing a boost of energy, and seasonings that can be added to practically any dish (or eaten straight from the spoon) their products are the convenience that you need as a new mom.

Agni makes nourishment in the fourth trimester convenient and delicious. The cookies, tea, and seasoning that make up their Mama Box are specifically crafted with 24 key ingredients to support digestion, breast milk production (their Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie is THE Lactation Cookie that you need on your nightstand!!), restful sleep, immune health, hormone balance, and replenishing key nutrients for mom and baby.

Creates Moments just for Mama
At a time when everyone is holding the baby, Agni encourages moments that hold the mama. Their Mama Box is designed with products to refill mama’s cup and support her through what can feel like endless feedings, night wakings, and fussy hours. By incorporating ritual and intention into the things that you’re already doing, Agni invites you to pause and celebrate the extraordinary job that you are doing – their tea is like the big warm hug you didn’t know you needed!
Supports Postpartum Recovery
Postpartum recovery is more than just the initial 6-8 weeks following the birth of your baby. Agni provides products to support and nourish, not just for the fourth trimester but for as long as it takes for you to feel a little bit more like yourself again. Boasting key nutrients including vitamins B6, C, E, K, iron, fiber, iodine, magnesium, selenium, and zinc, Agni’s Sesame Nori Seasoning makes postpartum recovery convenient and accessible. Sprinkle on rice, avocado, tacos, eggs, roasted veggies, or any takeout meal that could use a boost of flavor and nutrition.
Helps to Balance Hormones
Pregnancy and birth can wreak havoc on a woman’s hormones, and with elevated hormones, estrogen, and progesterone not returning to pre-pregnancy levels until around six months postpartum it is crucial to include nutrients that support and rebalance hormones in the initial postpartum period, and in the fourth trimester. The cookies, tea, and seasoning included in Agni’s Mama Box is specifically crafted with 24 key ingredients to support hormone balance, and replenish key nutrients for mom and baby.
Boosts Immune Health
Stress, Lack of sleep, poor digestion, and recovering from birth (both vaginal and C-Section) can all impact a woman’s immune health, making them more susceptible to burnout or falling ill. Adapting to your new role as a mom is hard and remembering to prioritize yourself takes practice. Agni makes nourishment in the fourth trimester simple. Created with 7 health experts on their Medical Advisory Board and taste-tested by top chefs for maximum deliciousness, their range of products are specifically designed to nourish, support, and replenish key nutrients, so you don’t have to worry about what you should be eating.
