Natural, healthy support for pregnancy and postpartum by Kiwi mum and owner of Mamma’s Milk Bar, Wendy Poon.
When Auckland mum-of-twoWendy Poon gave birth to her first child, she found that breastfeeding wasn’t as easy as she thought. Tired and struggling from low milk supply, Wendy searched for natural and healthy ways to boost milk production without relying on sweet lactation treats. Coming up empty-handed and tired of being unable to find a healthier alternative to deliver lactation support, Wendy started making my own blends with and 100% natural ingredients and Mamma’s Milk Bar was born.

Pregnancy and postpartum health
Mamma’s Milk Bar aims to support Kiwi women both during and post-pregnancy with protein and lactation blends to ensure all mums are at optimum health.
“Pregnant women require extra protein in their diet to meet her own needs – replenish dead skin cells, fight infection and digest food,” says Wendy. “However, she is also growing another human from scratch and this tiny human needs to form all of its organs and begin to produce antibodies and hormones. Its muscles will develop, and the baby will start to move. Synapses in your baby’s brain begin to form connections. All of these things require proteins. The third trimester is the period of prenatal development with the most rapid growth, so the increased protein requirement is especially important.”
Wendy says eating well in the postpartum period is also super-important for your own health and, if you’re breastfeeding, for your baby’s growth and development.“Having a healthy diet can help postpartum recovery. A nutrient-dense diet full of complex carbs, fibre, healthy fats and protein, plus adequate hydration, can help heal your body, promote breastmilk production and support overall wellbeing and mood during the fourth trimester as a mum finds her way around motherhood.”
