Its the season and a lot of my loved ones are about to drop their baby bumps. The questions are starting to hit my inbox. I can't front it feels damn good being able to help my people through my own experiences. I breastfed Wisdom for about 18 months and Knowledge hung in there for about 10 months... she was far too independent for me. if I had to compare my two experiences, I'd say my milk supply was way better with knowledge, and I attribute it to my lifestyle change. I was still somewhat a meat eater when I conceived Wisdom, I was completely vegan with Knowla. Beyond that, I was much more familiar with the herbs my second go around. The herbs were an intricate part of pregnancy #2 and during my nursing. I would use the herbs when I was menstruating, or just feeling stressed and/or depressed. This list of herbs I'm about to give you not only promotes milk production, but can also promote healthy blood circulation, work to improve depression and anxiety, improve the ability to concentrate and so much more. I absolutely swear it.
Heres the list:
