The Mother Load

US$90.00 / US$75.00 with subscription

This regimen is a top-of-the-line natal protocol (you can take it prior to conception and while pregnant as well), with extra support for getting new, and not-so-new moms back on their feet.*

Each regimen is designed to support optimal nutritional levels, promote general wellness, and re-balance your system. While not a cure/treatment/prevention of disease, these protocols can help address the four mind and body issues that plague most women we know. The questions below will help you determine which protocol may provide support where you need it most.

If you answer yes to more than three questions, the protocol is a good choice for you—if you answer yes to three or more questions on multiple protocols, choose the one that addresses your most acute need. You can easily transition to a different protocol in a few months (i.e., Why Am I So Effing Tired? to Balls in the Air, or Balls in the Air to The Mother Load.)

About the Brand

Determining which vitamins to take can be overwhelming: It’s hard to choose from a vast array of products, and there is a ton of conflicting information—plus, there are well-founded concerns about what’s actually in them, which range from whether supplements contain what they claim, to questions about ingredient quality. This is too bad, as the modern, American diet often calls for extra vitamin and mineral support—and we all deserve products we feel we can trust.

At goop, we’ve built our brand by starting important conversations, and turning to the best doctors and experts in the field for advice and solutions. Not only are these doctors on the cutting-edge of what’s coming next, but they work tirelessly in their fields on protocols to help as many patients as possible. They understand what we need; they understand what works.

With goop WELLNESS, we’ve partnered with these practitioners to deliver health-defining vitamin and supplement regimens that address targeted needs. Clear your shelves of all those random bottles because each of our daily packets contains the kind of support you are probably looking for.
