Mums & Bumps used to be called Bump & Glory. Nothing on the inside has changed, just new packaging.
Omega 3 is critical for your baby's development & your wellbeing: From trying to conceive right through to breastfeeding, Omega 3 fatty acids are critical. DHA (one type of Omega 3) is essential for the proper growth and development of babies’ eyes and brains. Our brains are 60% fat and around 20% should be made of Omega 3 fatty acids.
Omega 3 content per dose: One small capsule has 560mg DHA. More than a whole tin of sardines.
Wild, Sustainably Caught Fish: We only work with Norwegian fisheries and manufacturers certified by both Friends of the Sea and the Marin Trust. We never use farmed fish, only small wild fish which are right at the bottom of the food chain, meaning they contain fewer heavy metals and other pollutants such as PCBs.
IFOS Certified Purity: Every batch is independently tested on top of the two sets of tests we carry out. Your guarantee the oil is pure, fresh and safe. Our results are published below. Our fish oils don't contain iodine and are tested for radioactivity.
Easily Digested: Our fish oils are super fresh so they're gentle on sensitive pregnant tummies and never cause fishy burps. They're also in the natural triglyceride form which is easier for the body to absorb.
Fish Gelatin Capsules: All of our capsules are made from sustainably sourced fish gelatin, we don’t use beef or pork in any of our products, which means they’re OK for pescatarians.
Who it's for: Adults during preconception, pregnancy and breastfeeding.
How many to take: One a day.
Calories per dose: 8
How long a pack lasts: 1 month if you take one a day.
Packaging: 100% recyclable glass pot & box.
Current batch & expiry: Batch MB32871, expiry date end September 2022. 6 packs will last if you buy before end April 2022.
Mums & Bumps (previously Bump & Glory) capsules are pure as pure can be, with no unnecessary ingredients:
Natural triglyceride-form fish oil from sardines, anchovies and mackerel (smaller fish with fewer contaminants)
Fish gelatin and glycerol BP to hold it all together (never pork or beef)
A tiny amount of vitamin E (tocopherol) to naturally preserve
That’s it. No chemicals, no nasties.
If you take one a day, you’re treating yourself and your baby to 560mg Omega 3 DHA. This is the mother of all pregnancy supplements.
We make the fish oil in Norway and the capsules in the UK. Our fish are sustainably caught from clean, wild waters and FOS & IFFO-RS certified fisheries.
Even so, it’s always good to check with your doctor before taking supplements like this one if you are on any medication such as blood thinners, are about to have surgery or have health concerns or conditions.
The capsules don’t need to be kept in the fridge, but best to keep them somewhere cool.

Just one capsule a day has the perfect amount of Omega 3 (DHA) for you and your baby. That’s 560mg DHA, the same as a tin of sardines.
It’s best to take your capsules with meals – either all at once or spread throughout the day. Taking Mums & Bumps (previously Bump & Glory) with food helps your body absorb it, and it can help you get into the habit of taking Omega 3.
There’s no vitamin A in Mums & Bumps (previously Bump & Glory) , so it’s perfectly safe for pregnant mothers.
It’s not the cost per bottle that matters when comparing Omega 3. It’s the amount of the good stuff (EPA & DHA) you get for your money.
Here’s why Mums & Bumps (previously Bump & Glory) is worth every penny. Taking one tiny capsule daily gives you and your baby 560mg of Omega 3 DHA and costs 63p.

The building block of your baby's brain
DHA forms a major part of our brain, eye & skin tissue. And a growing baby needs a lot of it, with the brain increasing in size by around 30 times from 24 weeks to 2 years of age.

Our bodies are very clever. They give mums' DHA to babies through the placenta & breast milk, so their brains & eyes can grow. So it's important to keep taking Omega 3 once baby's born.
