Jacobson is a founding member of the non-profit MOBI Motherhood Intl, an online resource for mothers facing extreme breastfeeding challenges, especially low milk supply.
She says that she researched "Mother Food" when she experienced persistent and severe low milk supply with each of her four children.
"When I saw how 'lactogenic' foods and herbs helped me make more milk I began to study mother-food traditions from around the world.
Women have always been aware of foods that help them breastfeed, and these same foods were the preferred diet in the postpartum. "The more I learned, the more strongly I felt about creating a resource that would encapsulate and preserve our mother-food heritage. Once passed down from mother to daughter, now this knowledge was in danger of being lost."
Today, Hilary Jacobson lives in Oregon where she works as a writer, speaker, and nutritional mentor for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers.
Discover recipes to increase and maintain an abundant milk supply, to promote the let-down reflex, increase the healthy fat content of breastmilk, along with other immune factors.
"Mother Food" is an alternative medicine and traditional foods how-to-cookbook and herbal that is recommended by lactation consultants and approved by the La Leche League Book Evaluation Committee.
