Miyuk Gook — Korean Postpartum Soup to Increase Milk Supply

February 26, 2013

Thank you to Stella Kang for sharing the links below. Stella was able to increase her milk supply with a Korean seaweed soup that her family brought to her throughout the first 6 weeks postpartum. This soup is traditional in Korean culture and referred to as “birthday soup.” Stella drank this soup everyday and is successfully breastfeeding without any supplementation.
Her grandma insists that using pork instead of beef is better for breastmilk production in this soup. It can also be made without beef or pork.
