Fairhaven Health Nursing Blend Giveaway

Today we have a giveaway from Fairhaven Health.  Read on for details on this opportunity and an interview with the company including their favorite breastfeeding tip.  Kelly was happy to answer my questions about the company and the why and how they got into breastfeeding related products.  Fairhaven has chosen to sponsor TLB because of their commitment to healthy families.

TLB:  What should TLB readers know about Fairhaven Health?

Fairhaven Health:  Our mission at Fairhaven Health is to help couples create and maintain healthy families. From preconception through pregnancy and nursing, Fairhaven Health is there – every step of the way – to provide clinically-proven products designed to safely and naturally promote fertility, pregnancy, and breastfeeding wellness. As a trusted leader in this field, our products are cooperatively developed and formulated by a diverse panel of medical experts – including doctors, ObGyns, nutritionists, and naturopaths.

What motivates each of us here at Fairhaven Health to roll out of bed each morning and come to work is the amazing feedback we hear from our customers. Nothing starts a day better (with the exception of a large cup of coffee) than hearing from a new mom that she is now breastfeeding successfully after struggling to get her milk flowing. Click here to hear what some of our customers are saying about Fairhaven Health’s Nursing Blend.

Watch Chianta’s video review of Nursing Blend! 

TLB:  How did Fairhaven Health get started and what led to expanding to breastfeeding related products?

Fairhaven Health:  Fairhaven Health was started in 2003 to provide natural alternatives to couples struggling with fertility issues. The expansion into pregnancy and breastfeeding related products happened quite naturally, actually. As couples successfully conceived using our fertility related products, they began asking us to develop products for pregnancy and breastfeeding wellness, knowing that we could be trusted to provide high-quality options.

To build our line of breastfeeding products, we teamed up with internationally recognized lactation expert and breastfeeding advocate, Dr. Kathleen Marinelli. Dr. Marinelli is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine, and is a neonatologist and Director of Lactation Support Services at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford, CT. In her role as a neonatologist, she has worked tirelessly to make sure that all babies in her NICU receive human milk, and is a staunch supporter of breast milk donor banks. At Fairhaven Health, we continue to be inspired by Dr. Marinelli’s commitment to making sure all babies receive human milk.

TLB:  What is your favorite breastfeeding tip?

Fairhaven Health:  Seek out the support you need! Just because breastfeeding is the normal way to feed our children, does not necessarily mean that it is always easy. With formula companies lurking around every corner waiting to pounce on discouraged moms, breastfeeding women need support from family, friends, health care professionals, and (perhaps most importantly) other nursing women, especially when the inevitable struggles arise . . . latch issues, supply problems, fussy/colicky babies, mastitis, etc. At Fairhaven Health, we believe that all of these “struggles” can be overcome, and we are heartbroken to hear when a nursing mom stops nursing before she is really ready to stop, simply because she doesn’t know where to turn for help and information. There is a community of breastfeeding love out there (props to The Leaky Boob), so don’t be shy about jumping in!

This giveaway is for a 3 month supply of Nursing Blend for two lucky winners, which represents a retail value of $53.95 each.   Nursing Blend was formulated to meet the specific nutritional needs of nursing mothers and their babies and to aid in milk production. In addition to comprehensive vitamin and mineral support, Nursing Blend contains a blend of herbal galactogogues, including fenugreek and fennel seed, that promote the production of breast milk. Nursing Blend is the ideal dietary supplement for nursing women who are experiencing breast milk supply issues.

  55. I’m nursing my 5 month old and my 2 year old. Since I’m back to work, I’m pumping which is never as efficient as nursing. Any help with supply would great. This sounds like a great product. And it’s awesome that they’re supporting TLB!

  56. Thank you, I would love to try this product!

  57. not sure where the flavors are coming from, these are pills. My supply has been good, but that may change. Also, my sister is pregnant with twins and it would be good to have these as backup.

    • She had a cookie giveaway- looks like responses to that, but idk why they are here, lol. Probably a blog glitch…

    • not a glitch – originally, the instructions said to leave a comment on this page and say which flavor we’d like. You’ll notice several people were surprised by that, by their comments… but, now it looks like it’s been corrected. 🙂

  58. I can’t figure out how to get the address for my tweet, but I did: https://twitter.com/#!/Giggly_Kerri

  59. Would love help making enough milk… Seeing as how I’m buying supplements, three free months would be a God send.
