Life Space Probiotic for Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Review
Whether you’re a new mum or this is your second or third baby, one thing we can all agree on is how much being pregnant takes it out of you!
It’s hard work growing a baby, and for many mums, you’ll have to do this while continuing on with work and other life commitments.
Some mums sail through the process, while for others it’s much harder to stay on top and make sure they’re also taking care of number one – themself!
There are so many products on the market at the moment claiming to aid mum-to-be’s and new mums stay on top of self care and help them get all the nutrients they need.
Personally, I think a good healthy diet full of the right iron-rich foods can help with a lot of this, but I’m not against getting a little help!
If you’ve managed to nail a good healthy diet but want something to give your immune system a boost Life Space Probiotic for Pregnancy could be for you.
What’s in it exactly?
Life Space Probiotic has been formulated with fifteen different types of premium, beneficial bacteria, specially designed to help mums.

Why should I try it?
It’s a capsule form probiotic that provides the right kind of probiotic bacteria to support you through your pregnancy by enhancing your immune system.
It helps to reduce the risk of infection from ingesting bad bacteria in food, helps aid against constipation, helps to increase nutrient absorption and also helps to maintain a healthy blood glucose level.
So just a few things to help you on your way during pregnancy!
What I think I love the most about this probiotic above other ones on the shelf is that it’s completely safe for you and baby – even during breastfeeding.
The probiotic bacterias in this one have been specially chosen to not only aid a healthy gut, but a healthy vagina too – it includes various types of live probiotic that are found in the birth canal – meaning it’ll keep you healthy especially where you need it right now!
Other positives I found include:
Very usable – if you’re like me and hate swallowing large tablets (unfounded fear of them getting stuck in my throat!) then these are ideal.
They’re small and easy to swallow.
Non-refrigerated – unlike some other high brand probiotics, you don’t need to refrigerate these!
So they’re perfect for travelling and keeping with you for when you need them (I also found that makes them easier to remember to take as I usually forget about probiotics when they’re in the fridge door hidden behind the ketchup!).
And it doesn’t impact the quality or levels of goodness in them – perfect!
Safe for baby – both during pregnancy and when breastfeeding – the biggest positive for any mum is knowing they can have something without it having any impact on their unborn or newborn baby.
Many mums have reported continuing to use these even after birth and well into breastfeeding. Perfect peace of mind!
Fully aids healthy digestion – the capsules help in maintaining a fully healthy digestive environment when taken regularly including helping normal, healthy bowel movements (no more constipation!) and helping with the absorption of additional nutrients to keep the body happy and healthy.
How much will it cost me?
At first I thought $42 for this little bottle was a bit hefty in price, but given you get 60 capsules (so it should last you about 2 months), it’s wealth of benefits, the amount of other mums raving about it and the peace of mind it provides – I don’t think that’s too expensive after all!
Because it’s not a refrigerated probiotic you can get it in most pharmacy shops and even supermarkets are stocking the brand now.
It’s also available online but why wait for delivery when you can get it easily in store?
Anything else I should know?
If you’re thinking of taking a supplement, even one that seems to have no negatives whatsoever, it’s always a good idea to chat with your midwife or doctor first, just to be on the safe side.
Make sure you have a good read up on any new products before taking them, and that you know why you want to take it so when speaking with your medical professional, you can get the best advice for you.
