As a practicing pediatrician and facilitator of the Bayou Region Baby Cafe, I have been pleased with the variety and quality Mrs. Patel’s products. I have shared the lactation teas and cookies with my patients and support group. My moms have been pleasantly surprised with the taste and results.

I have been happily recommending Mrs. Patel’s pregnancy and lactation support products for many years in my pediatric practice as well as to friends and family! These delicious supplements are safe, effective and time tested through generations. I love to provide this resource as a way to assist expecting women prepare their bodies for delivery and new mothers boost their breast milk production. They are a real tool to get through this delicate time with confidence.

I love Mrs. Patel‘s products! I use them for myself as well as recommending them to my patients. The lactation cookies are delicious and good for women with various dietary restrictions. The lactation tea is a wonderful blend. Overall Mrs. Patel‘s offers a high-quality products that deliver great results!

Dr. Jessica Keating, DC, ND

Mrs. Patel’s offers a variety of quality products that can have a place in any mama’s home who seeks to increase or maintain supply. I have shared their treats and teas with my own clients in a support group and they were beyond satisfied with their experiences. Personally, I used the products during both of my postpartum periods and valued them to supplement for milk production. What wonderful options!

I love Mrs Patel's milk making products! I became addicted to the lactation treats (Peanut Butter was my fav) after the birth of my second daughter. When a friend or family member has a baby I like to show up with a hot meal, do all the dishes in the sink, leave them some Lactation treats (combo pack) and Lactation Tea (Chai Spice) and then get out of their hair so they can rest. As a midwife for over 15 years I have seen a lot of lactation related products, but Mrs Patel's has my heart. It is made with great ingredients and a whole lot of love.

I'm a 37 y/o momma of two. Our daughter is almost 3 y/o and we just had our little man on October 12, 2016. I'm an RN in the Emergency Department and am a huge advocate for breastfeeding. Fortunately my hospital and administration is super supportive of breastfeeding and pumping. I BF my first till she was almost one and I plan on doing the same if not longer with my second! Through both of my babies breastfeeding journeys I have had the support of an IBCLC and that makes a HUGE difference! I was thankful to come across your Instagram page while scrolling one late night while nursing. I have since bought the milk water tea, the yummy bars, and the munch crunch. I have definitely seen an increase in my supply and I love treating myself to an afternoon tea or late night snack bar :) I have almost 80oz saved and I continue to add to it for when I go back to work!

As a Registered Nurse and IBCLC, I am very careful which products, if any, I recommend. I trust and recommend Mrs. Patel’s products to clients who ask for lactation tea/cookie products because Mrs. Patel uses only the highest quality ingredients, offers excellent and quick customer support and holds themselves to the highest standards. And of course ALL of their products are DELICOUS!!

Naiomi Catron, RN + IBCLC

Getting enough nutrients is very important to breastfeeding mamas. Mrs. Patel's products provide quality ingredients, and are a great source of nutrients to help mamas fuel themselves as they provide breast milk to their babies. Mrs. Patel's understands the assignment of us lactating mamas.

As an acupuncturist specializing in postnatal health, I recommend Mrs. Patel’s teas and cookies to all our new mamas looking for lactation support. They use the highest quality ingredients, are very effective and taste delicious!

I have been a practicing Doula for almost 10 years. Since 2013 I have been using these products for myself and gifting them to my Doula clients. I struggled immensely with my milk supply as I have PCOS and this was a natural way for me to give my body the little help it needed. I saw a bigger supply increase and my 2 babies I used these products with did not seem to have any reaction which I was SO GRATEFUL for! After my own experience was so wonderful I begin giving them to clients, I saw the same satisfied reactions and relief through them as well. In 2018 I asked Mrs Patels if I could continue passing along this gift to the surrogates I worked with. Surrogacy has its own trials and errors and sometimes milk sharing can be a very tedious task in the postpartum period. These products have been well loved and I am so happy to share them. Now if I could find some willpower this next journey of my own to not want to eat the whole box of lactation bars in one sitting :D Thank you for making these products and continuing to produce high quality items sent with so much love and care. Almost 7 years in and I have no plans of recommending or using anything else.

Crysta Whitehurst, Doula

As a Certified Postpartum Doula, I support a lot of clients who breastfeed. And let me tell you, breastfeeding is a full-time job! Many of my clients have had challenges with milk supply, latching, postpartum healing, nutrition, you name it. Not only do I highly recommend Mrs. Patel's teas and snacks to my families, but I also recommend following Mrs. Patel's on social media. The owner, Anhoni Patel, provides a safe, non-judgemental, and honest space on Instagram where parents can find lots of breastfeeding tips, tricks, and information. As an added bonus, she even hosts live Q&A's with her on-staff Lactation Consultant. Passed down through generations, Anhoni's knowledge of Ayurvedic food and medicine provides a much-needed (and delicious!) tried and true offering to the breastfeeding community!

I am so thankful to Mrs. Patel’s and the delicious and effective lactation bars. After returning to work after maternity leave, I was noticing a slow-down in my milk supply. Panic was setting in, worrying if I would be able to produce enough milk daily to be able to bring milk to daycare. So, I began to scour the internet looking for way to increase my supply. I luckily came across Mrs. Patel’s and decided to by my first box of lactation bars (with chocolate on top of course, mama loves chocolate)! Within my first week of consuming the bars, I saw an increase in my supply! I was amazed. That was all it took for me to start a recurring subscription! P.S. I highly recommend the subscription because mom brain is real and I would have absolutely forgot to re-order. Being back at work and pumping wasn’t always easy or fun, but the increase in supply after eating the bars was such a relief and gave me piece of mind! If you are nursing, Mrs. Patel’s is a MUST!

Two words: Delicious & effective. I don’t remember how I learned about Mrs. Patel’s, but, I do know it was in the midst of a panic when my supply had dropped. And, I’ll forever be grateful. Not only are these bars delicious, but they also helped bring my supply up (from 1-2 oz total to 6-7 oz)! I absolutely love both the PB & choc bars, and, love love the Chai Spice lactation tea. It’s delicious on its own or as a latte. And lastly, Munch Crunch has become my go to topping for veggies, salads, etc. I can’t recommend these products enough and it’s become my go to gift for my new Mom friends :) You won’t be disappointed!
