Many women look forward to being pregnant, having a beautiful baby and being a great mum, but sometimes, the process may not be how it’s imagined.

Titilayo Medunoye started her company Milky Express, following a personal experience with lactation.

After her wedding, she looked forward to getting pregnant, having a beautiful baby and being a great mum. All that happened, but the process wasn’t what she had imagined.

After the birth of her daughter in 2015, she had problems lactating – she did not lactate for 3 months. This led her into depression. She was in the U.S at the time, and met with a lactation specialist and things began to turn around. She began breastfeeding her baby afterwards.

Even after returning to Nigeria, she spent a lot of resources importing lactation products as there was no company producing such in Nigeria.

She decided to do something. She founded Milky Express out of love for babies and their welfare.

“The company focuses on raising the next generation of healthy strong children by providing adequate care and support to their mothers during the breastfeeding period,” it says on its website.

Titilayo also received training from Lactation Education Resources.

Milky Express produces lactation cookies, teas and shakes and also offers support in terms of consultation.

Milky Express also provides advisory services for suitable lactation products, as well as counselling for mothers going through post-partum depression.

Titilayo holds a BA in Economics from Nkwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.

We celebrate Titilayo for overcoming a personal struggle and is now working to make sure no woman goes through the same as well as helping others who are facing similar challenges, overcome them
