DHA, a type of omega-3, is incredibly important in pregnancy and breastfeeding. Around 30% of eye and brain fatty tissue is DHA and baby gets it from mum, so it’s important to keep levels up. It's pure & safe, independently tested for your peace of mind.
Why it’s so important: 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.
IFOS Certified Purity: Every batch of our Mums & Bumps Omega-3 Fish Oil Capsules is tested twice by us and tested independently by IFOS. They are tested for radioactivity and to ensure they don’t contain iodine. This is why we can guarantee that our fish oil is pure, fresh and safe. We also publish the test results for every batch which you can find below.

Why these ingredients?
We keep it simple to ensure you get only the best from every capsule. We’ve worked hard to find the best possible ingredients to help look after your wellbeing and your baby’s development.
- Pure Fish Oil: Our fish oil is natural triglyceride-form fish oil, sourced from smaller fish that have fewer contaminants.
- Fish Gelatin and Glycerol BP: These ingredients hold our capsules together while also being easy to digest. We never use pork or beef gelatin so our fish oil supplements are suitable for pescatarians.
- Vitamin E: We add a tiny amount of vitamin E to our capsules to help preserve them, ensuring you can enjoy beautifully fresh fish oil every time.
That’s it. No nasties and no chemicals - just pure goodness.

While our fish oil is safe to take, you should check with your doctor before taking this supplement if you are on medication, such as blood thinners, are about to have surgery or have health concerns.
You don’t need to keep these capsules in the fridge, but they are best kept somewhere cool and out of direct sunlight.

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.
"The diet of pregnant mums can have a lifelong impact on their child’s health and development”

Super dooper breast milk
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.
