"One morning I woke feeling achy in my joints .. a red patch appeared on my right breast . I was sure I had mastitis.

I spoke with my midwife who recommended QIARA. "I took 1 sachet .. I must admit I sceptical if it would work. Within 2 hours my fever came down, my breast pain ceased and the red patch disappeared! I was stunned! My mastitis cleared up almost immediately.

Even if you have had to take antibiotics QIARA can be take to help restore the good bacteria. QIARA can even be given to your little one”. @thebiomedicalnaturopath

"I have a bad case of mastitis. I have been to the hospital and GP. I’m on quite strong antibiotics, double doses of Qiara and ibruprofen.  I no longer feel like I’m dying, I finally stopped having fevers and chills, and I’m no longer expressing blood stained milk." 2PerfectBoys @whattoexpect

Alex was recommended Qiara :  “The single strain probiotic in Qiara has helped me with my immune system & breastfeeding! I've avoided colds & flus + mastitis! I recommend Qiara to all mothers & anyone who's sick. I need to get Olivia back on it, as she's been sick since we stopped taking it .. so Thank you Qiara!!

“My patient has been taking Qiara now for 9 weeks and it has proven effective not only in the treatment of the blocked nipple duct, but we have also found that it has not returned. My patient is very happy that this is working and she can continue to breastfeed her child”. Rebecca Kubenk : Blooming In Adelaide.

Mastitis : "This was when I came across one of my ‘have to have’ products. Qiara probiotic, it is a probiotic that is made from the same strain as breastmilk.  It also assists in reducing the recurrence of mastitis and maintaining a healthy microflora system."

"I was recommended these ones by my lactation consultant as well as hundreds of women in my Instagram community. These can actually also help reduce the symptoms of mastitis too." @byBrittanyNoonan

@strattansgonewild  “I just want to say I've been taking your product for 5 days now and I'm not sure if it's a coincidence but my 6month old who was waking every 1-2 hours for the last 3 months (and 2-3 hours since day 1) FINALLY slept!  He did 8.5hrs between feeds and his day nap improved significantly!"

Amazing! Has helped my baby girl so much who has many intolerances. The breastfeeding probiotic has been a life saver for us and her little tummy". Tamara @QiaraProbiotics

“I had mastitis twice and am still feeding at 13 months.  I also took a probiotic, Qiara .. to increase the healthy bacteria & make you less susceptible to (mastitis) again.” etadec15. (Pic : babycenter.com.au)

".. my lactation consultant identified my symptoms and recommended Qiara.This product is quickly generating support and evidence-based results - proving the effectiveness on relieving symptoms and quickening the recovery pace from having mastitis." The Insightful Mum

"The bacteria most often causing mastitis will flow into the ducts and colonise there. But if we colonise them with good bacteria then it significantly reduces the incidence of mastitis because they fight off the bad bugs. QIARA the breastfeeding probiotic is amazing for this. Proven to prevent and treat mastitis". The Natal Naturopath

"2 weeks into breast feeding I developed mastitis. This came and went for about a month before it turned to an abscess! I needed super strong doses of antibiotics. I then developed nipple thrush which just added to the pain. I had made up my mind that after the mastitis cleared I was going to give breastfeeding away altogether when a friend suggested I try Qiara. I dosed up on it initially while on the antibiotics and also started giving little G the infant dose. She is now 9 months old and I am still breastfeeding. I swear by it!" Kate @tellmebaby

"The first time I heard of Qiara probiotics was from my local lactation consultant. I was 4 weeks postpartum and having a lot of trouble with painful breastfeeding, cracked nipples, milk blebs and always painfully engorged. Once I started taking Qiara, I haven’t had a problem since and my Bub is now 8 months old and exclusively breastfed! Not to mention Since taking Qiara I have never even had a hint of mastitis- which I am SO thankful for!  Qiara has definitely been apart of our successful breastfeeding journey, thank you!!" Paris

“MASTITIS: OUCH! Any nursing mama that has had it can relate! “MASTITIS: OUCH! Any nursing mama that has had it can relate! There are a few things you can do -  Probiotics!! Some studies show that probiotics in the third trimester can help prevent mastitis". @Medicalmamamegan

@mummyandtheprince - “Since having my first child I have become a huge probiotic fan. I had him on a probiotic from a young age and I recall credit it for his great immune system, he is 2.5 and at daycare 4 days a week and he has never had a nappy explosion, never had any stomach bugs and we never had a lot of baby issues around wind, constipation etc!”  

"When I was delivered a double bout of it mastitis, I resorted to antibiotics which then led to months of nipple and ductal thrush.

"After doing some research I came across a probiotic called Qiara which contain the patented breast milk isolated strain, Lactobacillus Fermentum CECT5716 ..  in a nutshell research has found that particular probiotic strain may help to relieve or reduce breast pain and discomfort associated with mastitis, reduce the recurrence of mastitis". Erin @themumsgroup

“.. it (breastfeeding) was difficult the first few months.  Luckily while in hospital I met the lactation consultant and she recommended that I buy Qiara probiotics as it was the only item that had proven results to assist women in continue breastfeeding through mastitis. I was able to get through the breastfeeding journey and I am still successfully breastfeeding my 18 month old now!" Mattina.

“Can’t recommend Qiara probiotics enough for mastitis .. they saved me twice. I’m a massive advocate for Qiara. I tell everybody”. @Tazler

“These helped me tremendously with my recovery from mastitis. 

The bacteria is isolated from breast milk, and may help restore balance of good bacteria in breast milk that may have been disrupted by antibiotics - relieve or reduce breast pain and discomfort associated with mastitis and reduce the recurrence of mastitis” Dr. Carla Vescio

@themammascollective ".. used Qiara to avoid mastitis, support gut health and bubs gut healing"

@qulu.co “Specifically Qiara Breastfeeding Probiotics, these are gold.   It worked wonders for me and everyone I have recommended it too. It literally stops mastitis in its tracks, especially when taken straight away. The probiotic strain is cultured from healthy human breastmilk so the strain is specific to preventing and treating infection related to breasts.Honestly this is the number 1 thing I would recommend for all breastfeeding mothers.”

“We love using Qiara Probiotics! I use them for my two girls to keep them healthy and regular. I also started using Qiara for myself when I commenced night weaning my toddler.  It has prevented any blocked milk ducts and mastitis even though I have skipped so many of our regular night feeds. Love this product and my girls love their kale smoothies with Qiara mixed in. ”  @nourishinglolaandsage

Qiara for immunity and hay fever:  “I've been taking a probiotic, Qiara, to improve my gut health and immune system, and my hayfever this year is definitely not as bad as I usually suffer." Mornington Penninsula Mums

"..  finally I saw a lactation consultant for help. I started taking Qiara and saw results within 48 hours. My lump was so painful so she recommended I double my dose for 48 hours (2 sachets a day). It sounds weird, like how can a probiotic help but it worked!!! .. it also helps your babies gut. I was so so thankful for it because I almost gave up .. I recommend getting on this ASAP!” Jessica Macaso.

“I had recurrent mastitis last time and decided I didn't want to take any chances with this baby. I know taking Qiara will help lower the chances of getting mastitis again!” Melissa @naturalchemist

@shelleywyliedoulaservices : On Qiara : “ If you know someone with mastitis, this will be music to their ears ❤️”. Shelley Wylie.

Sonia Lewis, wife of rugby’s Luke Lewis, philanthropist and new mum was re-admitted into hospital with a bladder infection -  “…my lactation nurse said Qiara is fantastic.. I found it really beneficial especially whilst on antibiotics ... and now after 10 months of breastfeeding which didn’t come easily, I was thrilled to get this far with thanks to Qiara.”

 

"Isabella at 15 months old, had a middle ear ruptured, perforated her ear drum... a further 4 times over the next 6 weeks.. as soon as we finish antibiotics, the next day it happens again. So she was on antibiotics for 7 weeks.

She's been on qiara almost the entire time, however I did run out and she didn't have it for 3 days - and straight away she developed an upset tummy, wouldn't eat, and her poops changed to typical antibiotic poop.. we started back on Qiara - and a day later it's resolved! It's honestly amazing stuff”.

"Isabella was a Caesarian baby, which predisposes to colic and reflux. Right from birth she would power vomit from reflux.

When she got to 11 weeks old ... I was at my wits end, I went to my MCHN for help, she suggested Willby's Wind and Colic Mix. The pharmacist who makes Willbys suggested Qiara as they work well together, but also Qiara helps with some of the symptoms. She stayed on Willbys & Qiara till 10 months - and voila!" Stephanie pic @willbyscolicmix

The Healthy Home Economist - Sarah Pope.

“Mastitis is painful, and usually comes when you are at your most vulnerable — breastfeeding a little one. Right now there are only a couple of probiotic strains tested for effective use against mastitis, and the one probiotic product that contains it is only available in Australia. Lactobacillus fermentum CECT5716 can be found in Qiara”.

@babycenter mums share colic advice .. “Were both taking Qiara ... I’m breastfeeding as well but giving the odd bottle now and then. I've noticed a big difference in her, she's no longer struggling with wind”. Bowie25 - Pic : babycenter

"After seeing them on another Mum’s instagram page about helping with mastitis and vasospasms I thought I’d buy a box to try. I started on Qiara, things all started to change. No more pain when feeding and whenever I started to get blocked ducts, I’d take a double dose of Qiara and can honestly say by morning they had disappeared. I tried quite a number of brands of probiotic before purchasing Qiara and nothing compares!” @thefarmerswifelife

"As midwives and lactation consultants, we understand that for many women, the breastfeeding journey is not always easy.

We have been recommending Qiara for a few years now. The outcomes for mothers with a history of recurrent mastitis have been especially positive. Now, after further research showing benefits for the infants gut flora as well as for mothers, we decided to stock Qiara in our practice". @thelactactionnetwork

" I’ve used (Qiara) since I was 38 weeks pregnant as I have a history of mastitis and colicky babies! My third child has been a dream!” @luv_thebod shared her Qiara success with baby no 3!

@earthjiinda shared this with Qiara : "My third boy was my first experience breastfeeding and I was really lucky to have such a wonderful smooth transition .. until after 12 months I started getting mastitis quite frequently due to the constant changes and pattern my little Goori would feed.

A beautiful friend of mine recommended Qiara probiotics and it honestly changed our world.

We continued breastfeeding for two years thanks to @qiaraprobiotics and I am constantly recommending them to anyone who is or has suffered with mastitis!”

"Qiara has helped me personally.

@katherine_hay_nutritionist

Gut health is SO important to us. babies don’t have much of a developed immune system. Probiotics help to promote good bacteria in the gut, which help to fight infections.

This product can also help with mastitis/breast pain so it’s an all round great product! Thanks @helloimstepha

"I feel privileged to have come across the support of QIARA.

Our journey has certainly endured its fair share of compromised special circumstances, being diagnosed with carrying a very rare heterotpic pregnancy, losing one of our twin bubs, so having access to a universal product that’s aimed at nurturing and repairing such a broad spectrum of health benefits towards both Mum & Bub was an absolute must have in my daily recovery ritual.” @ezkatedeger

@ezkatedeger

"As a registered midwife and Chinese Medicine Pracitioner , I have recommended Qiara .. I commenced taking the probiotic in the third trimester of my pregnancy and have continued throughout my breastfeeding journey.

After doing my own research into the product and how it works .. I have also become a stockist as I know just how effective this product is. I am pleased to say I have not experienced any mastitis throughout my breastfeeding journey, which has been a huge relief. I am now six months postpartum, still breastfeeding and still using Qiara.

I feel extremely grateful that I’ve had a smooth sailing breastfeeding journey so far and I really believe @qiaraprobiotics have played a big role in that .. the sachet of goodness helps maintain a healthy gut flora because when mumma’s tummy is bloated and uncomfortable, bubs tummy generally will be too! ⁣

"The difference between my boys was crazy! Finding out about wilbys at 4mths and trying an inferior brand of probiotics lead to colic until 7mths and spending more money because I was unsure about the outlay. Totally worth it! Started with both wilbys and qiara at a few weeks old with bub no2 and he was off before 3months! Now using qiara to help with dairy intolerance!"  Merryn Wood

Willbys and Qiara for Colic :“... was a game changer for us! We were on Zantac and removed it completely within 3 days (weaned her) of starting Willbys / Qiara.  I used it alongside the (Qiara) probiotics for 40 days and she was a different human. Definitely worth trying. My girl had colic and silent reflux too”. Mich

“When Jake was around 5 weeks old we started experiencing colic symptoms. I had an appointment with Wilbys’s Colic and wind and they recommended I also start using the Qiara probiotics. Eventually I found the probiotics were what was supporting Jake and continued with Qiara It was an absolute game changer!” @mum.life.Emmamay.

Keely R.: Pure magic! "I was getting repetitive mastitis and since taking this, I haven’t had it once! And my little boy has slept through without a night feed a few times (we all know what that does to the boobs!) and no sign of mastitis at all. So grateful". @nursingangel

Rochelle: Expensive but worth it. "I have had issues with ongoing nipple thrush and I have started taking this along with doing alot of natropath advised tricks as well as take the antifungals and treating my baby. I believe all therapies are working and my thrush is now easing (after 5 months of troubles), I was determined to continue breastfeeding so for me everything spent on ensuring that happening is worth it. I cannot say for certain that it was the probiotic that is the key, but I'm still happy I got it and will continue use." @nursingangel

"Want to see Qiara in action for mastitis?  “The first image was what my breast looked like yesterday when I woke up. I had a bleb that was very deep in the nipple.  Then 12 hours later (gone).  So what did I do?  Firstly @qiaraprobiotics pregnancy and breastfeeding. Two sachets four hours apart.  Also soaked my nipple in warm epsom salt water and then fed off that breast .. with the help of Qiara the pain was gone in a few hours and the redness completely gone.  Like nothing happened”. @holistic_lactation_consulting

@skyewheatley takes each morning? *add Qiara to cooled liquids or soft foods to maintain the probiotic powder efficacy!

“Buy this stuff!  My baby had antibiotics at 4 weeks old, as well as CMPI and reflux.  I tried everything under the sun, but these probiotics were the only thing to genuinely settle his tummy and relieve discomfort. They worked almost instantly and he’s been a much happier baby ever since.I CANNOT recommend these enough!

“I was recommended Qiara probiotics by a lactation consultant on day 6 of my breastfeeding journey.  I was unlucky enough to get mastitis within the first 6 months of feeding, when I had run out of Qiara .. and was unable to source any in our small rural town or surrounds - I now make sure I have 2 boxes on hand at all times!

“.. I have been using the Qiara breastfeeding probiotic for 6 weeks now. Yesterday I could feel the mastitis coming in, I was sore and swollen and by the end of the day I was red and hot so I took an extra sachet and crossed my fingers.

I woke up this morning engorged but the redness and deep pain had completely gone! Not Only has Qiara drastically improved my boys colic symptoms over the last 6 weeks and helped him have a settled tummy whilst we sorted out his dairy intolerance, it's saved me from what I'm pretty sure was going to be a bout of mastitis. Thank you!” @hayleymeggsyesy

"... I personally have taken @qiaraprobiotics as this helped during pregnancy, then also during breastfeeding to help prevent mastitis and give the goodness to bubs. I also had to have large amounts of antibiotics for surgery post birth so 100% needed for us, I think it’s a great idea during pregnancy and breastfeeding to take a specific probiotic 

Qiara for immunity and hay fever:  “I've been taking a probiotic, Qiara, to improve my gut health and immune system, and my hayfever this year is definitely not as bad as I usually suffer. I got sick of just taking meds to mask the symptoms as they make me drowsy too

“Willbys colic mix .. goes hand in hand with Qiara.  And Lordy, I gave it to my daughter at 1pm and she dozed off to sleep by 1.30pm .. she woke up at 630pm. Her longest sleep to date. She didn't wake screaming gin pain, longing for the comfort of my boobie. Could this be the answer we needed? I ate dinner for the first time without holding her or having someone hold her while she screamed" @living_guilt_free

Brilliant probiotic "I was recommended this probiotic to keep mastitis at bay and it was worth every cent. I took this on advice from my OB and within a couple of days I was feeling so much better.

Essential for avoiding mastitis "During my first breastfeeding journey I developed mastitis and it was awful. I was recommended Qiara by my GP and I couldn’t have been happier with the results. I never developed mastitis again and I felt that I was giving my son the best start in life. Now I’ve just had my second baby and I haven’t thought twice about using Qiara again. It is expensive but worth every penny." Laura Hadfield @tellmebabyau Pic : @lioraaorli_photography

"Inadequate supply of healthy bacteria in the gut of the baby during pregnancy and from the breast milk is thought to contribute to post-natal infections, and, low levels of these bacteria in the mother’s breast may be linked to mastitis in the mother.

"Qiara Probiotic was a life saviour! 
Both my boys suffer from allergies and because of this I couldn't continue breastfeeding my eldest - he was very unsettled and screamed a lot!  Second time around I was determined to breastfeed and given the family history our lactation consultant suggested Qiara.  Wow the difference was amazing, I was able breastfeed my baby without any tummy issues or allergy breakouts and I finally had a content baby!” Teagan

 "Once I started on Qiara the bouts of mastitis spaced out and eventually they stopped happening all together. I noticed when I didn't keep up with the Qiara, and got myself run down, I was more prone to Mastitis so keeping up to it was beneficial for myself and my baby." Cassie

It completely cleared up my mastitis within a few days!

“Just wanted to share my experience in case I can help anyone else avoid/deal with mastitis. One morning I noticed one side of my boob was so sore..  by lunchtime, I felt like I had been hit by a truck. Lethargic, hot and cold flushes and a temp of 39 … I knew it was early stages of mastitis.

Went to the GP who wrote a script for antibiotics. Before starting the antibiotics I took Qiara at lunch and that night, and by the next morning, I was already feeling so much better. Kept taking two sachets a day for a few days and it completely cleared up and didn’t return. No antibiotics needed!”

So happy I stumbled upon this10 months ago

".. a friend suggested taking Qiara especially in your 3rd trimester and then afterwards for breastfeeding. After doing my own research it didn't take me long to realise I had a quality product recommended to me. I've been taking for a fortnight now and feel good. . Do yourself and your baby a favour, look into this product!"  Mandy @nursingangel

This product is amazing. "Constantly was on antibiotics and no one really knew how to help. This was my final straw. I bit the bullet and purchased this probiotic- even though it’s expensive. I know why now!!! It works! I take two sachets if I get a blocked duct. And booom- it’s fixed! Also, if my bub is fussy and refusing to feed (she had reflux) I take one and she of much happier feeding. I love this probiotic soooooo much!!!!" Lucille @nursingangel Pic : @farmerwifelife

"After have my son I got mastitis and had to go on strong antibiotics .my doctors recommended this probiotic and said it would help stop me from getting mastitis again. I started on it straight away and have stayed on it ever since.

"Im officially a dairy cow .. Since we’ve got Archer on the Willbys colic mix (and Qiara Probiotics)  I’ve been pumping a bit of milk, then freezing it in portions so that I can simply defrost my milk and add the liquid to his bottle in small batches. He needs to take it 4 times a day so I’m finding this works really well. It’s been helping his belly aches massively.

I hope this helps someone else if needed" @leah_esther

"Mastitis is also known as a signal that you are doing too much. It can be a really clear signal to slow down and take it easy.

It will help speed up the process of maturing his digestive system so he can break down the milk better himself. Last night for the first time in a week my bub had some gas again and was very unsettled, I gave him the Willbys mix and within one hour he was passing gas and then sound asleep for 5hrs!"

It can help to build a healthy digestive system which s necessary in babies struggling with wind and gas pains due to an immature digestive system."  @thebettermumscompass

He never had problems with diversions or intolerances/allergies since starting solids. He never had a stomach bug.I never had mastitis in the almost two years I breastfed my son. My son now takes the QIARA KIDS one since he turned 2 and used to take the infant ones once he started solids.

I started taking Qiara, also recommended from the pharmacist .. to help strengthen babies gut and help with colic symptoms .. and prevent mastitiss (I've had it twice prior to taking this).

I went into hospital when she was 5 weeks for retained placenta and was on high doses of antibiotics which really messed her around as she's exclusively breastfed.

I stopped taking them for a few days and then got mastitis!”   Sarah @mumsgrapevine

“I’m continuing to take Qiara - I wasn’t completely sure my newborn is draining my supply completely and was concerned I may get mastitis, so I’m continuing to take Qiara to hopefully prevent any mastitis or blocked ducts.

"I love my Qiara! I always notice the difference when I stop taking it." Jessica Elle

I have noticed a huge improvement with mastitis and blocked ducts". Deb F @nursing angel - Pic : glowingmumma.com

“I used Qiara probiotic as it was recommended to me as I suffered recurring mastitis. It was happening like clockwork every two weeks! Once I started on Qiara the bouts of mastitis spaced out and eventually they stopped happening all together. I noticed when I didn’t keep up with the Qiara, and got myself run down, I was more prone to Mastitis so keeping up to it was beneficial for myself and my baby.”  Cassie.

"No more dairy intolerance!
.. seems to have been a life changer. I’m currently 32 weeks pregnant and have been diary intolerant since I was 10 years old. For whatever, the week I started taking Qiara I started craving Greek Yoghurt - I had so and NO REACTION! For three months I have been eating 2-3 serves of dairy a day with no contraindications and am thrilled.” Truly-Belle @nursingangel

“I’m currently using Qiara mother and baby probiotic, and willbys colic mix. Pricey, but seems to be helping (colic)”  JustADill @reddit

"Never looked back!
I experienced recurring mastitis for the first 6 months postpartum. Ever since finding Qiara and making it a part of my regular diet, I’ve not had to take antibiotics to help relieve the symptoms before anything progress to full blown mastitis again. It’s a wonderful product, I highly recommend it to any mums having issues with mastitis, inflammed blocked ducts." Sarah B @nursingangel

“After trying all over the counter products for colic and no product providing relief, we saw a great improvement within 48 hours of giving Willby’s to my 7 week old. Now a week on we can see dramatic changes! This paired up with the recommended Qiara Probiotics has been a godsend.” Ramona @oceaniabiz  Pic : @willbyscolicmix

“Reflux really messes up a baby’s digestive system. My son threw up so many times a day. I don’t doubt for a second that his intestinal flora needed some serious TLC. One of the causes of tummy discomfort, reflux, and therefore colic, is a lack of good intestinal bacteria present in their gut.. one of the most obvious infant acid reflux solution is a probiotic.”  @alifeinlabour

“.. after birth babies naturally introduce bacteria to their gut through the breastmilk or formula they drink and later through the food they eat. Probiotic supplements are intended to aid the bacterial colonisation of your baby’s gut or to restore it when it has been disrupted.  At this stage of a babies life, a probiotic can really make a difference and help the digestive system to find a balance, we recommend Qiara as a great addition to your babies diet.”  @willbyscolicmix

“.. it’s seriously amazing and works wonders!  I recommend doing a course of probiotics if: you have antibiotics in pregnancy, labour or postnatally; you birth your bebe by Caesarean; experience blocked ducts, Mastitis or Thrush; or if your darling bubba is troubled by wind or digestive upsets.” @maternalinstinctsbyamberly

“.. having breastfed three little people over the past 5 years - i now won’t be without this product! A sachet in the nappy bag and a few in the drawer makes all the difference!  From mastitis & breastfeeding support, to gastro & upset tummies! Qiara has helped us through it all!” @bostonbayfamilyhealth

"My doctor recommended these ! “We used for our bub through infancy. Now using Qiara Kids for our pre schooler who has had antibiotics and has respiratory issues. Seems the research supports all the intestinal health concerns so it’s better than a multi strain cheap chemist alternative. Double sachets when he starts getting a flu or tummy troubles.”  Andy @tellmebaby

Proven to improve gastrointestinal health. "My son had colic and antibiotic use in infancy. I This was the strain with research for peak gastrointestinal health and it has helped his digestion, immunity and recovery from illness. I used the Pregnancy Breastfeed product and avoided mastitis - also helping his gut recover. Best brand that is recommended so often!.” Laura @Tellmebaby

“Outstanding product and customer service. Most grateful for the phone support and follow up,I recommend this product as first line both new mothers and for all family members”. Erin Harris @reviews.io

“Thousands of mums have shared their Qiara success stories on social media, calling it “lifechanging” for breast pain, mastitis relief and blocked ducts, improving their baby’s gut health and relieving symptoms of colic.  Qiara can help restore the balance of good bacteria in breastmilk after antibiotics, and promote a more settled baby”. Bridget @midnightmums

“I have prescribed Qiara to so many of my breastfeeding clients & can honestly say it has helped them so much. One of my clients suffered countless mastitis after her first birth & second time  round after using their pregnancy/breastfeeding formula she encountered mastitis once & it was a lot milder” @coreandfloorstore

“Mastitis is usually the result of a blocked milk duct that hasn’t cleared. Some of the milk banked  up behind the blocked duct can be forced into nearby breast tissue, causing the tissue to become inflamed, resulting in pain, swelling and redness. Take Qiara” @vidaacapuncture

“I just got onto Qiara that can help with mastitis symptons and reoccurance. I just got a over a bit of mastitis pain, chills, fever,  had to massage the breast a lot and feed and feed. The probiotic helped me avoid antiobiotics, which I was about to go get and I think it’s good too if you have taken antibiotics.” Marika2020 @babycentre

Worth the money “I started taking Qiara after getting mastitis 3 times and taking 3 courses of antibiotics. Since starting Qiara I have managed to stay off antibiotics and have only gotten mild mastitis which has quickly resolved thanks to Qiara. I definitely recommend this product.” Carly @nursingangel

"That was to last week. I was hit with a really sore right breast aout of no where. We were at my parents place and all of a sudden I went from being warm from the humidity like everyone else to going completely white and shaking from being frozen cold. I jumped in a hot shower, tried to release my breast tissue, rugged up and tried my best to get her to feed.

Back to the drs again, on strong antibiotics which have now finished up. Lots of rest and trying to sleep when I could. Managed to find the 1 box of @qiaraprobiotics pregnancy/breastfeeding probably in the GC, these are like panning for gold.

I tried the epsom salth trick in my mil catcher I had from @mamabodytea and also my moxa stick I still had from @thegoldenmonth I think I made sure to try absolutely everything. Because mamas just don't have time to be unwell. And to be frank Mastitis is the absolute worst. I thought I was going to end up in the hospital..." @lifewithsarahjade

"A staple in my hospital bag to help prevent mastitis from day 1. Qiara has been my favourite product to use and to recommend for years!" - Sarah @themorgantrio 

“As a midwife and IBCLC Lactation consultant I have no hesitation in recommending this product.

“I started taking the qiara probiotic .. Wilbys didnt arrive till Tuesday and I gave one dose upon arrival .. but we agreed all symptoms had gone over the last few days and we didn’t need to give wilbys anymore.   And the qiara breastfeeding probiotic - I think this has been the reason the symptoms didn’t return when we stopped wilby’s”  GirlNext2 @babycenter

After years of gut issues, I’ve always been a big believer in looking after your gut,.. then I got a particularly gnarly bout of mastitis in my first week of juggling two kids and dear lord, NEVER AGAIN.  I got onto Qiara as soon as I felt the fever creep in, and with a combo of that and drainage managed to nip it in the bud and not need antibiotics . Anyway, now I’m never not on the stuff.”  @greenandsimple
