    • After having an emergency c-section with my third baby, I ended up with an infection in the wound which required antibiotics. The antibiotic messed up my digestion as I experienced bloating, discomfort and burning sensation in my stomach. My newborn also reacted badly as I was and still am exclusively breastfeeding, initially it made her experience several bowel movements in a matter of hours then the following weeks after she was only moving her bowl once a week and she broke out in eczema. During this time I also started to experience very low moods, not full on depression but definitely on a tipping point. I spoke with my friend Sarah, a nutritionist, about my symptoms and experience, she recommended these probiotics. Within a matter of days taking them my mood significantly improved, I felt the like a fog over me had been lifted and I could smile from the inside and enjoy my baby. I also got her the newborn probiotic drops, which are so much more convenient to give than the sachets, and within days her bowels started moving daily again and her skin has improved tenfold. If you are experiencing any of the issues I have described, I would highly recommend these probiotics and the baby drops they have been amazing for me and my daughter. I recently ran out and after a week or so the bloating came back, I quickly repurchased and once again symptoms have disappeared! I know its going to take a while for my gut to be fully rebalanced again but I am super confident its on the road to recovery with these.

    • I started taking the probiotics soon after having my third child, whom I breastfeed. I’ve noticed a difference in my energy levels, I’m waking earlier and feeling refreshed in the morning and not sluggish as before. My energy is better throughout the day and my skin has been clearer, brighter and smoother. I’m ordering more as I really have felt the benefits of taking these probiotics and am starting my children on them also.

    • I’m really happy with the results so far from taking these probiotics. For the first 14 weeks of pregnancy my skin was so bad , after taking these for two weeks my skin has fully cleared up! I also have noticed I haven’t been bloated as I was before and have a lot more Energy. Fully recommend these!
