This is where the wisdom from grandma’s kitchen comes in to play. Before you crinkle your nose, did you know that moringa, fenugreek, shatavari and garlic can help to improve lactation, while edible gum/gond and Turkey berry are ingredients that can provide strength to the mother post her delivery? Remember, it worked for your mother and your grandmother, so why not give it a try?
