Qiara Pregnancy & Breastfeeding is a multi-award winning product, as voted by mums @ Tell Me Baby, Australia's biggest baby products review site - winning "Best Vitamin and Supplement" for 2 consecutive years.

Qiara supports over 40,000 mums each year so far with the product being lauded for it's role in mild mastitis prevention and treatment for mums and support for gastrointestinal system health  in infants, kids and adults.

The Beginning

Our business and incredible journey began in 2011 when our CEO Helen Lyon identified and evaluated research on the world's first probiotic isolated from breastmilk. After travelling to Europe where the research and science was emerging, the decision was made to bring the ground breaking probiotic to Australia and in 2012, Qiara, the brand and product was born.

With over 25% of Australian mums suffering with mastitis, the timing couldn’t have been better and Australian mums became the first in the world to benefit from the Qiara breastfeeding probiotic.

Australian Owned, Australian Made. Female owned and operated. Caring for women and their families.

We are a small Australian company, mostly represented by females who are passionate about making a tangible difference to the health of mums and families.

Our sales team includes experienced Health Professionals who interact daily with mums, other Health Professionals and over 500 stockists across Australia.

Our Philosophy

What characterises our business today and offers such promise for tomorrow is a product that works and a community of support that encompasses health professionals and mums.

We are committed to delivering high quality products backed by evidence based research. Providing trustworthy, non-biased education for Health Professionals in the pregnancy, birthing and gut health space is what we pride ourselves on and will continue to invest in ensuring optimal health outcomes for their patients across the nation.

Social Impact

Education and clinical research are key values to the company, so in 2021 we welcomed the opportunity to partner with the Birth Experience Study (BESt) supporting wider insight into birth experience in the Australian maternity care system.
