- Could you give us a quick introduction to yourself & what inspired you to start your beautiful business?
Hello! My name is Shannon, I am the co-founder of Mothers Mylk and boy Mum to Hunter & Harrison. Mothers Mylk was born from my own personal postpartum experience. Like many new Mum’s, I struggled with the transformation to motherhood. It wasn’t until I came through the other side of postpartum depression that a light sparked ‘there must be a better way to do postpartum!?’. I wanted no mother to have to go through what I had, but sadly up to 1 in 5 do. I found so many gaps in the level of postpartum care that need filling and so Mothers Mylk was born! It is our mission to support women on their motherhood journey and reduce the rates of perinatal mental health conditions.
