We support the mother first—nourishing and uplifting her at every stage of the childbearing journey.
MotherBees was born as a small food delivery service in a home kitchen, where founder Heng Ou created handcrafted dishes and delivered them to the doorsteps of new mothers across Los Angeles. Now, we are proud to have transformed into a global hive of connection, inspiration, and nourishment for women and their families.
This golden thread of women-centric care is woven through our series of books and into our collection of foods and supplements. Everything we do is designed to support women from Awakening Fertility through The First Forty Days after giving birth & all the years beyond.
Our philosophy is rooted in the belief that inspired, honest content will empower a woman to make choices that are best for herself and her family—and faith in the power of food to nurture and revitalize.
Never underestimate the impact of a hot cup of soup placed into the hands of a hungry mother. The ripples of love she experiences will touch everyone in her orbit.
Thank you for visiting us. We look forward to supporting you along your path to motherhood!
MEET OUR QUEEN BEE: HENG OU
Heng is author of The First Forty Days and Awakening Fertility, and the founder of MotherBees, which was conceived after Heng delivered her third child. During her recovery, she practiced zuo yuezi, a traditional Chinese approach to postpartum care that was handed down to her by a beloved Aunt.
Heng was so moved by the restorative power of this practice that she felt called to make this ritual accessible on a broader scale. Driven by her belief that nourishment goes far beyond the foods we eat, Heng’s idea of care nourishes your soul, your wellbeing, and your heart. And with some practical, modern updates to zuo yuezi, Heng started a meal-delivery service in Los Angeles for mindful mamas and developed MotherBees.
Heng is a graduate of The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, and Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
