Mamaprenista Founded, Doctor Formulated with Whitney Poma of Momful
August 2, 2022
If you’re a new mom you know how stressful it can be when you start breastfeeding. There is a constant worry that your baby may not be latching well or eating enough. You may wonder if your breast milk has enough calories and nutrition for your little one. You may even start to question your own nutrition and how it affects your newborn.
Our guest on today’s episode is Whitney Poma, founder of Momful. Momful is a breastfeeding mom’s best friend when it comes to nutrition supplementation. In this episode, Whitney talks about how she came up with the idea to start Momful, the void in the market that it fills, and so much more.
“Nobody said anything about my nutrition. And I felt like somebody had withheld information from me. And you’re right. That’s why I started Momful, to tell that story so that other people heard the same thing. And they didn’t get this far into a challenge without knowing.” – Whitney Poma
