I also sometimes take breakfast/snacky stuff, like muffins or a coffee cake. Sometimes lunch stuff, like hummus and baby carrots or pimento cheese and a loaf of bread or chicken salad with either bread or crackers. That's easy stuff that doesn't have to be heated, can be eaten with one hand, and will last a couple of days.
I'm not sure about promoting lactation, but a breakfast caserole would be a good source of protein (presuming it is egg based) and would be something that could go from freezer to microwave easily.
Also, a tip for giving dishes is to freeze the meal in a 9x9 glass dish like pyrex, which is narrow at the base and wider at the top. When it is frozen, transfer it to a gallon-sized freezer bag with the cooking instructions written on it (hence the dish being larger at the top important, easier to get the frozen food out). Most people have a 9x9 pan that they can cook the food in and this saves from having to arrange to get a dish back. (you could confirm that the person has this size or another before freezing)
