I love being a mom! Diego is my whole world! But the first few months after I gave birth came with many unexpected challenges and frustrations especially when it came to breastfeeding! I remember thinking “How hard can it be?”
Today, I’m going to share with you my heart behind creating Majka as well as what makes the products so great! So, if you’re a new mom looking for good products to support you in your breastfeeding and motherhood journey, you’re in the right place.
Why I Created Majka
After Diego was born, I realized being a mom was not going to be as easy as the moms on Instagram made it look! I had prepared for pregnancy, but I was not prepared for postpartum and all the changes that came with it. I searched the grocery store aisles but couldn’t find products or information to help me, especially with lactation and breastfeeding. I was having low milk supply and low energy, I needed help! And I realized other moms were needing help with this, too. From this need, Majka was born! My business partner Majo and I wanted to create a product that supported new moms by aiding in lactation while giving them the nutrients that they needed to be healthy. The first product idea we had was our protein powder for breastfeeding moms. We wanted a meal replacement that would cover a new mom’s nutritional basis while also providing lactation support. I also wanted to create a community that helped new mom’s support each other. Postnatal depletion (I remember crying when my hair was falling out and I had no idea why) was something I didn’t want any mom to have to face on her own, and I want new moms to know the importance of self care.
We don’t want any new moms wondering “Is this protein powder safe for breastfeeding?” and “What ingredients are in these lactation cookies?” we want moms to recognize our ingredients and feel confident taking our products.

How to Enjoy the Nourishing Lactation Protein Powder
There are a couple different ways that mamas can enjoy the nourishing lactation protein powder. The first way is to mix it with your choice of almond milk. Using the Majka Shaker bottle makes this simple!
The second way is to blend it in a smoothie! (My personal favorite!) To make the perfect smoothie for breastfeeding mamas, blend the protein powder with the following:
- Fiber (ex. Chia seeds)
- Liquid (ex. Almond or coconut milk, or water)
- Healthy fat (ex. avocado)
- Greens (ex. spinach)
- Low-glycemic fruit (ex. ¼ of raspberries or blueberries)
Both are perfect as a snack. The smoothie is especially good for breakfast or lunch and it can help satisfy sweet cravings that many moms experience. And while many women worry about weight loss while breastfeeding, you really don’t need to. Returning to your normal weight will happen naturally if you focus on fueling your body with wholesome foods!
