Jewels is the founder & face behind milk & cookies by Jewels... a biz that specialises in the most delicious lactation cookies to support milk supply for breastfeeding Mamas.
This Mama of two with her third bubba on the way started her biz without realising she was even doing so. She was overwhelmed, juggling two small children, battling severe PND & trying to find her sense of identity in amongst the crazy ride that is early motherhood.
Baking became her focus... and with a mind occupied from the cloud that is PND, she started to heal & gained confidence baking her lactation cookies to support fellow new Mums in her hometown of country Victoria. At this stage it was a hobby & a tool for healing.
Three years later this same woman has established herself a thriving business. One that now sees her cookies commercially manufactured & distributed nationwide daily. She has multiple stockists around the country & has just dipped her toes into the international market.
She wears her heart on her sleeve and is a big believer that the cup is always half full. Her approach is practical & supportive and her branding is modern. Her experience with PND has meant that she truly understands the overwhelm that can come with being a new mum.. and is the first to put up her hand and say that breastfeeding can be hard yacka.
