FAQ's

Do the lactation bars actually work?

You tell me that they do! Our bars are full of galactagogues which are ingredients traditionally used to increase breast milk supply but we make no promises that these will improve your supply - after all, we're all different. However, I do promise to bake you a delicious lactation bar [NZ's ONLY lactation bar] that we believe is superior to all others + what's more is you don't have to be lactating to eat it, it's a great snack for mums who aren't breastfeeding, supportive dads & helpful siblings

What is a galactagogues

A galactagogue is a substance used to increases breastmilk supply. Our lactation bars have the following galactagogue ingredients;

  • Brewers yeast
  • Oats
  • Chia seeds
  • Linseed

How many bars should I eat?

We don't recommend eating more than 1 in a day & think 1 every other day is a good place to start

Do I have to be breastfeeding to eat them?

No! Both Jeremy + I eat them + neither of us are breastfeeding. What's great about these is they make a great snack for anyone - mums, dads, children, even grandparents. When we formulated these bars with food technology experts the brief was;

  • They MUST taste great +
  • Anyone MUST be able to eat them

We know we have achieved that + that you'll love them as much as we do + as much as the customers before you have. You can read more reviews HERE

Do the bars have an expiry date?

Yes - all bars are stamped with a best before date. They have a 12 month shelf life from the date of production

Where can I purchase the bars?

Lila Jasmine Lactation Bars are currently available at a handful of retailers, our STOCKISTS page has all the details

Can I gift someone a ticket to your Fourth Trimester Workshop?

Yes, please purchase the 'Gift an Online Workshop' or Gift a Face-to-Face Workshop' + we will liaise with you to ensure the recipient accesses the workshop easily

What is the best gestation to attend your Fourth Trimester Workshop?

I recommend coming in your second or third trimester but really whenever suits you is fine. We've had women come in their first trimester + women come postpartum too. What's more important is that you recognise the importance of preparing for the fourth trimester + place priority on finding time to learn

Are the Fourth Trimester Workshops only for first time mums?

No, we have many women attend who have had a baby or babies before. Normally they've decided to come for a refresher or they found some of what we discuss difficult + want to be better prepared

Can I bring my partner to the Fourth Trimester Workshop?

Yes of course! When you come to the Face-to-Face Workshop there is an opportunity to select if you'd like your partner to attend when purchasing your spot. There is a small fee for them to attend. Having them come or not is a personal decision. Right now we have more women attend without their partners than we do with their partners but you need to do what is best for you. 

What's the difference between the Online + Face-to-Face Workshop?

Our online workshop is ideal for those who don't live locally to Hamilton or don't want to attend an in-person session {but I am very friendly}. Some of the reasons people prefer an online workshop are;

  • Timing - the timing of our face-to-face sessions don't line up with your availability or you'd prefer to do it in your own time or there's difficulty finding the time that suits both you + your partner
  • Location - you may not live in Hamilton where our face-to-face workshop is held
  • Bed rest - you may have been put on bedrest for the remainder of your pregnancy, therefore this is a great option
  • Comfort - we're not all comfortable in small groups so taking the workshop online from the comfort of your own home may be your preference
