FAQ

How do Divine Mama Bars work?

Each ingredient in Divine Mama Bars has been selected for their lactogenic (milk-producing) properties.  Lactogenic substances are foods, drinks, and herbs known to encourage milk production and increase supply. Women throughout history have turned to them while nursing and have passed their wisdom along to the next generation of family and friends.

This understanding of how certain foods affected supply was so much a part of ancient cultures that mother goddesses (the original Divine Mamas) are often represented in art as holding or eating those plants or herbs. For example, oats are perhaps one of the best known galactagogues (substances that increase milk supply).  Oats contain saponins, which are sweet, soap-like substances that have immune-stimulating and antibiotic effects. The body can use saponins as precursors to the production of hormones, including the pituitary hormones that stimulate lactation.

 

How fast will I see results?

If you’re in need of a breast milk boost, try eating at least one bar per day.  While every woman’s body is different, most moms notice an increase in their milk supply within 24 hours.  Make sure to drink plenty of water through the day as well.  Divine Mama also recommends seeking help from a lactation consultant.

 

What is the shelf life of the bars?

The bars are individually sealed to stay fresh.  They have a shelf life of 9 months from the time they are baked.

 

When will my order be shipped?
