Can you believe, in modern Western Cultures postpartum practices beyond the first few days following birth don't exist!? Outdated social norms have many mothers feeling an overwhelming pressure to “bounce back” quickly and adapt to motherhood like it’s a walk in the park - all without any additional organised support. As Mamas, our co-founders Shannon and Alana experienced the lack of postpartum support firsthand.
Mothers Mylk was founded with a vital mission: To nourish, educate and support women through their motherhood journey; reducing or eliminating the need for clinical intervention before it becomes critical. Statistics show that up to 1 in 5 new Mums WILL experience perinatal depression and/or anxiety. That’s around 60,000 Australian mothers each year! A sad but real statistic facing Australian women in the year following the birth of their baby. Source: panda.org.au.
Our vision is to increase positive postpartum experiences for the modern-day mum. Since 2021, Mothers Mylk has grown into a powerful 100% online community supporting mamas who are feeling overwhelmed and chronically fatigued, and debunking the notion that this is a ‘normal’ part of motherhood.
You can now enter motherhood empowered with the knowledge and tools to support your health. From memberships, courses, books and our online Mothers Mylk Clinic – there are many ways to join us and be empowered. We look forward to welcoming you to the Mothers Mylk community.
