Beautifully packaged & feels so nourishing to drink
Silverettes are nipple saviours! Would do postpartum without them.
My daughter loved the gift card! It was perfect for me because I am in the United States and she lives in Australia.
This is my 2nd time buying these cookies. They’re delicious and feel healthier than what I’m able to make at home. Great for a daytime snack or very early in morning to help with staying awake while breastfeeding. Will definitely buy again!!
Delicious and super easy way to start the morning. Have been using this as a morning coffee replacement and am happy with the results. Will but again and now want to try the other options in this range.
I wore these from the very start of my bf journey, and though its a bit of a rough journey for nipples, mine never got red / cracked / bleeding and I praise these little gems for that!
I've been insatiably ravenous while breastfeeding and these biccies are the perfect one handed treat!
My wonderful Radiant Birth book came beautifully packaged with thoughtful personalised note & crystal. A wonderful experience with WOOM.
A book that everyone needs before they give birth. Do yourself a favour, it read and savour it. It could change your entire postpartum period.
Absolute life changer I have been using foraged for 2 months now and it increases my energy, mood and makes me feel all round better. I honestly couldn't live without it again
Such a beautiful nourishing product, perfect for any stage of motherhood. It has changed my life since taking it, so much energy and clarity of mind.
Bought one as a gift and one for me - this product is stunning. Smells amazing, feels so lovely on the skin and the little flowers in the bottle make it feel like a real treat!
Honestly, I wish I did my research before because Foraged has been incredible to my body. The first time having it in my smoothie I went without a coffee for days. Eventually when I had coffee it wasn’t because my body craved it but just a social habit. My energy levels, mood, everything elevated and I’m feeling great. I will forever rave about this product. Give it a go mama!
Perfect for thirsty, sensitive skin. Smells amazing and has a really lovely texture that sinks in and leaves your skin feeling really nourished and supple. It would be perfect for a growing belly. I use as a special balm for my hands, elbows and décolletage for that extra bit of care at night time.
