Omega 3 plays a crucial role in the development of your baby: From that positive test right through to breastfeeding, Omega 3 fatty acids are great while you’re expecting. Most importantly, they play a crucial role in the growth and development of your baby. 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.

BARE BIOLOGY IS RUNNING AS USUAL BUT SOME DELAYS TO POSTAGE TIMES
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 670mg Omega 3 (560mg DHA, 40mg EPA and 70mg other Omega 3s). 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
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 670mg Omega 3 (560mg DHA & 40mg EPA), 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 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 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 Bump & Glory is worth every penny. Taking one tiny Bump & Glory 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.
