Mrs. Patel’s offers three delicious products: Fenugreek Bars, Munch Crunch and Milk Water Tea. Based on the tenets of Ayurveda (a system of traditional medicine native to India), our ingredients have been used by nursing mothers in India for thousands of years.
Our products are ideal for mothers who have recently given birth, those experiencing difficulties with their milk supply and those pumping working mothers who want to maintain their supply and keep breastfeeding.
Our mission is to help nursing mothers. We believe these products can help women heal faster after giving birth as well as increase their milk supply. The postpartum period can be overwhelming and we want to make it easier. Nursing and pumping can be frustrating and we want to help.
The idea for Mrs. Patel’s first came forth after the birth of my son. As Indians have been doing for centuries, my mother used her knowledge of Ayurveda to whip up a special batch of bars, crunches and tea – based on time-honored recipes that had been passed from mother to mother within our family for generations – as soon as I gave birth. As such I had a smoother postpartum healing process and did not have any supply issues in those crucial first few months. In fact, I was able to donate some of my milk to a needy mother!
Unfortunately, after I returned to work around the time my son was 7 months old and started pumping more rigorously, my supply went down. I began taking up to 8 pills of fenugreek a day. It was intense, but I was determined to make it to a year. And I wanted to do it as naturally as possible.
I realized that popping pills weren’t the way to go. Indeed, none of the tinctures, teas and other supplements I tried really worked for me. What I needed was my mother to make me some more of her “magic” lactation treats and teas!
Now I don’t have to wait. And neither do you.Share
