Introducing the Pregnancy Bar - A Healthy Snack for Pregnancy

Meet Lesley the founder of Bump Babes pregnancy bars

Lesley is a mother, wife, creator, philanthropist, and businesswoman. Due to a life threatening condition, Preeclampsia, which causes kidney failure, Lesley is maintaining her life on dialysis while awaiting a kidney transplant. Her perfect son Maxwell is a miracle who arrived 10 weeks early and spent almost 7 weeks in NICU at Monash Medical Centre in Melbourne.

Bump Babes was born in the grocery aisle while Lesley was having pregnancy cravings looking for a convenient snack. With the multitude of different muesli bars, energy bars and breakfast bars, she found it hard to know what was best for her and the baby. That’s when the lightbulb moment happened in the summer of 2011.

Now in 2015, we have the pregnancy bar. Available for each trimester with targeted ingredients for maximum benefit during your pregnancy. Bump Babes also donates a portion of profits from every product sold to their charity partners, Save The Children and Unicef, to create a better world for mothers and children in disadvantaged locales, whether it’s across the pond or in our backyard.

1st Trimester Pregnancy Bar
 T1 Bar - Strawberry & Gingernut

- Strawberries are naturally rich in folates which has been proven to help reduce premature births & birth defects such as Spina Bifida
- Ginger contains all natural anti nausea properties that help reduce vomiting

2nd Trimester Pregnancy Bar
T2 Bar – Apricot & Coconut

Second trimester

- Apricots contain iron that prevent anemia & dietary fibres that fight constipation
