Nutritional supplement for pregnant and lactating mothers
Pregnancy and breastfeeding period are of the most important and vital periods of the mother’s lives. A part of this is about providing a suitable and accurate nutrition based on the needs of this period.

If it is not met completely, it can cause some irreparable damage to both mother and body, and some of them can last for many years.
Although this increased demand can be met by the mother herself from food, this does not happen because of digestive problems of this period, the difficulty of accurate nutritional calculations, and cost constraints. So the need for a complete nutritional package which is easily accessible, has a reasonable price, and provides a nutritional guarantee is obviously seen. This package should be natural and milk-based to have high biological value. Ladymil is a complete nutritional package which observes scientific, national, and international standards and meet the needs of pregnant and breastfeeding mothers.
