Maternal intake of DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) contributes to the normal brain and eye development of breast-fed infants2.

Each capsule provides 300mg DHA, the level recommended by international experts4 (ISSFAL) for mums during lactation.
Fish oil produced to high GMP3 quality. Certified for sustainability by Friend of The Sea.

Good but expensive

As a new mum I really struggle to find time to eat well and know that my body will sooner pull itself apart to ensure my baby gets what she needs. Hence taking these to help protect myself. If they somehow boost my breast milk and help my baby too thats a bonus. It might just be physiological but I do feel better when I take them. That said they are a rip off!

Useful product

Useful to have everything in one box, but please be aware that taking a supplement with calcium in at the same time as one with iron in will mean that it is much harder for the iron to be absorbed into your body. If you especially need the extra iron it may be better to take separate supplements at different times of day.
