Mother’s Gold Q&A
Many women have found Mother’s Gold to be a very helpful herbal blend to support them while breastfeeding. The most frequently asked questions are:
Question: How soon before I can expect to see results?
Answer: This really varies from woman to woman. Some women see results within 6 hours. Others may see results within 24-48 hours. Within a 1-2 week’s time, however, you will know if it’s working. If you happen to be pumping, you may notice a thicker layer of fat on top of your milk, compared to usual. Mother’s Gold can increase the fat content of your milk. This is a good thing, as this can satisfy your baby more.
Question: How do I take it?
Answer: Take straight or in juice or water.
Question: How much should I take?
Answer: Most women find that 1 teaspoon taken 4 times a day is all it takes. Because each person’s biochemical makeup is different, pay attention to your body. Take more or less, if you think you need to.
Question: Will I have to take this as long as I’m nursing?
Answer: It depends on the reason that is causing your milk supply to be low. If it’s a temporary problem, then take Mother’s Gold temporarily until the problem is solved. If you have an ongoing problem that is causing you to have a lower than needed milk supply, then take Mother’s Gold for as long as you need to.
Question: How does it taste?
Answer: Mothers have reported that this is the best tasting herbal galactagogue that they have ever tasted. Since it is in a glycerin/honey base, it is sweet, and since this is an herbal product, it has an herbal, earthy taste. If the taste bothers you, mix it with juice.
Question: I have never been pregnant, but I am planning on adopting a baby. I would like to nurse my new baby. Can Mother’s Gold help me develop a milk supply?
Answer: Yes. Women adopting babies have taken Mother’s Gold and have been successful in producing breast milk (when used in conjunction with a pumping program). Breast milk quantities vary. Working with an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant or a La Leche League Leader may prove to be helpful. They will provide you with guidance as you embark on this journey with your new baby.
Question: Can I take Mother’s Gold while pregnant?
Answer: No. This is not recommended. Wait until your baby is born to take Mother’s Gold.
