Science behind the product

The scientific basis for the development of the Mommytoo dietary supplement and the idea of the Mommytoo program was based on Prof. Dr. Péter Takács’s decades long experience in patient care as well as his results in basic and clinical research.

When and how did the Mommytoo program start?

The idea goes back at least fifteen years. I worked in Miami when the question was raised: how could we influence pelvic floor muscle changes in the right direction after giving birth. We have been researching under laboratory conditions for years and then transferring the results to animal experiments. Finally, a series of experiments were carried out at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of the University of Debrecen. This clinical research proved that the Mommytoo dietary supplement positively affects the strengthening of the pelvic muscles and the speed of recovery after delivery.

The program is conveying an important message

Yes, we would like to draw attention to the fact that mothers really should care more about themselves and their health after giving birth. Unfortunately, it is a universal expectation that new mothers should only pay attention to the baby, usually with minimal help and around the clock. According to my experiences, US women are more aware of this and pay more attention to themselves. Already in the first weeks, it is important to realize that there is and will be a life beyond the baby, hence the name of the program. The newborn will be a teenager and then leave home. It does matter what quality of life the mother is left with at the time. For example, you can do a lot for yourself by practicing pelvic muscle exercises. It would be important for a woman to start these during the first pregnancy and then continue it from the sixth week after birth until the end of her life.

Why are the first 12 months are significant from the point of recovery?

During vaginal delivery the pelvic muscles may be damaged. The older the mother, the greater the risk: a twenty year old mother has a 15 percent chance of muscle injury with her first delivery, this chance is over 50% if the mother is over 40. The levator muscle should be conceived as a chalice that surrounds the pelvis. It needs to loosen and open up significantly for the baby to come through. The bladder, the vagina and all internal genital organs rest on this muscle. A permanent change to this muscle can lead to incontinence and sexual problems. The first year after delivery is a unique hormonal milieu, an evolutionary, self-acting, protective mechanism. This is what enabled women to give birth and recover even under unfavourable conditions. It is a unique period from a regeneration perspective.

How unique is the concept of Mommytoo and how unique is the product?

We have no knowledge of similar research anywhere in the world which would focus on the role of vitamins, minerals and trace elements in maternal regeneration after birth. For this reason, the Mommytoo program and the product are considered to be world novelties. Utilizing its novelty, our New York patent attorneys were asked to file international patent protection under the title “Pharmaceutical Composition for Postpartum Recovery and Treatment of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction”.
