Must read for moms who want to improve the quantity &/or quality of your breastmilk
I am taking herbs to increase milk supply, but sometimes I wonder about the dangers of potentially overdosing (yes, you can overdose on fenugreek and fennel for starters). I also prefer to get nutrients through food as opposed to supplements because I think my body would absorb them better. Enter “Mother Food” by Hilary Jacobson. It is a wonderful book that suggests many ways for increasing milk supply. Even if my milk doesn’t increase, I am confident that by following some of the suggests, my milk will become higher quality, e.g., higher fat content.
I had read several books which were all helpful for learning the mechanics of breastfeeding, proper latch, etc – but when I had a chronic low supply, probably due to insufficient glandular tissue, I found very limited information. Now that I am pregnant with my second, I purchased this book and I am so glad I did. There is so much information here; I found myself earmarking pages and underlining sections like I did in college. I am starting to incorporate some of the herbs and foods recommended during pregnancy now, and will be sure to have the herbs, foods, and recipes on hand after the birth of this little one. I am confident I can maximize my breastfeeding abilities for this next baby, even if I never get to full supply.
Highly recommend for all nursing mamas!
A mother’s companion. So much information presented in this book that I have never found anywhere else. I love natural food fixes for health issues. So many times we are told to run to medicine. I love the healing power of good food. This is a great resource for any nursing mother… whether you have issues breastfeeding or not. I look at this book now even after finishing my nursing season. Wish I would have found this book earlier than I did. It would have been really helpful with my previous babies. Great not only for nursing mothers but for midwives, doulas and doctors as well!!

About the Author
Born in Los Angeles in 1956, Hilary Jacobson moved to Switzerland when 19 years old to study music—and there she stayed for 30 years. While experiencing chronic low milk supply, which she resolved using traditional postpartum foods and herbs for milk production, she began an intense, independent study of foods and herbs used internationally for milk supply and a mother’s health. In 1999, Hilary co-founded the first online group for mothers with complex breastfeeding problems, MOBI Motherhood Intl. She is a Swiss-certified Holistic Lactation Consultant CH.HU.SI., a mindfulness-based Hypnotherapist ACHE, and the author of three books for breastfeeding mothers:
Mother Food: A Breastfeeding Diet Guide with Lactogenic Food and Herbs
Healing Breastfeeding Grief: How mothers feel and heal when breastfeeding does not go as hoped
A Mother’s Garden of Galactagogues: Growing and using milk-boosting herbs and foods from around the world.
As a hypnotherapist, Hilary guides mothers to heal from birth trauma and breastfeeding grief. She works with healthcare professionals suffering from burnout, stress and trauma.
