- About Us
While the journey to motherhood is always an exciting one, it doesn't always play out in the picture-perfect way we imagine for a multitude of reasons. Mums often find themselves struggling with health issues like morning sickness, decreased milk supply, weakened immune systems or allergies (either their own or their babies).
I experienced this myself first hand with morning sickness (actually it was all day and night sickness) starting the moment I fell pregnant. While I anxiously awaited each milestone that promised an end to this sickness, it continued on all the way through, leaving me depleted in every possible way.
This is not the ideal way to be starting out on the journey of new motherhood and left me with some late pregnancy health complications, then a difficult labour that my body wasn't in the best place to cope with physically, followed by a post-natally triggered health condition (Rheumatoid Arthritis) that will now remain with me ongoing and which also meant that as much as I had REALLY wanted breastfeeding to work for us, it just didn't despite how much we tried and I was devastated by this. It was one thing I felt so strongly about and that I believed should 'just work' for us.
During the past 7 years since the arrival of my son, I've researched extensively to find a natural solution to these health issues and have found that food can indeed be medicine. Our family has found the healing benefits that a whole food, nutrient rich, healthy diet can provide to help many health issues including all the above (and more!) which new mums are so prone to. I wish I'd known what I've now learnt BEFORE I became pregnant and it is this wish and personal experiences that has made me passionate about helping mothers live as naturally healthy as they can.
I would love to help many more avoid some of the conditions I've been challenged with and it's how the idea for Yummy Mummy Food Company was born!
At Yummy Mummy Food Company we understand how precious health is, especially at such a crucial time of life for young families, so we’ve hand-picked our products to ensure they contain the highest possible percentage of natural or organic ingredients, are gently processed to retain the nutritional properties of these natural ingredients and that they are ethical brands developed from a passion for natural health and solutions to increase wellness.
It’s also important to us that these foods are made available as easily and conveniently as possible because at the best of times, motherhood IS busy, but eating well is especially hard when there’s other wellness struggles involved too.
The Totally Devoted Cookie range from NZ ticks all these boxes and will help both the overall health you and ultimately your baby, so you can enjoy pregnancy and the benefits to you both from breastfeeding.
