I also got caught in the $220 renew subscription fee and when contacted they did not want to know about it. Yes it’s in the ‘fine print’ however, a company that can send messages, reminders and emails on weight loss but cannot remind a client when your renewal is due is quite wrong and they do know this. I run a business and this would never be accepted in our industry!

They have the worst customer service I have ever come across for a company of their size!

 I agree!!

 haven’t tried this product or company, so cannot give a review, I am currently using another product that offer 30 day money back guarantee, if you don’t like the full program, you will get100% of your money back, no questions asked. Today 3/12/18 I have lost 9.8kgs in 60 days. No brain fog, energy levels to where normal should be, quality sleep (wasn’t expecting that!), and my body has all the nutrients. No calorie counting or weighing foods, bless! The products have been around for 16 years, independently scientifically tested. AFL, olympic athletes, tennis champions use it. I have just watched a video by a product user of 7 years who has a PhD in exercise science and swears by the product that the program and the company.
Approx $11 per day for 2 meals, and plenty of support and encouragement too, especially in your first 30 days while your getting used something new you’ve added to your life👍🏻

get the book instead.'Busy mums guide to weight loss' about $20 has recipes and exercises in there like the website

 I did this. It has menu plans and diagrams of how to do all the exercises.

I did join last year and at first found the meal plans overwhelming until I really took the time to understand how I could customise them. Having said that, I found it increasingly difficult to add in my changes to the app after the first few months (after an app upgrade) and by that stage, I was losing interest as most of the recipes didn't suit my family and the ones that did, I just keep repeating on a rotating schedule.

The smoothies are fantastic and I use them whenever I don't have time or need an energy boost. They do work. I use them a few times a week now (as opposed to daily like before).

I lost about 4kg using Healthy Mummy.

The downside apart from the overwhelming meal plans is they don't warn you when your subscription is about to expire. I got billed AU$220 without any warning. I was told that I should have known as the app displays it but I haven't used the app in several months. Ouch! I told them I found it startling that a reminder email is not sent as we are busy Mums - many of us with new borns so it's really incumbent upon the company to give us fair warning. It's unfortunately left a sour taste in my mouth about the company and its practices. Having said that, I will continue using their shakes as they are by far the best on the market. But I will never subscribe again or suggest others to.

 I had the same issue with subscribtion. No wonder the founder is rolling in cash. And no review option on their fb to warn others.

 Just a heads up, the shakes are made with soy protein and has waaaaay too many ingredients, most of which are synthetically made. As a certified herbalist, this product isnt the greatest for your health but it's better than eating a toasted cheese and salami toasted sandwich for breakfast!

 I agree I too got caught, with so many deductions you can’t remember and agree communication is poor

Oh where do I begin with this company! I was a member for a year and left for several reasons. They have absolutely terrible customer service and if you even dare to ask even a slightly negative question regarding the program or shakes in their so called support group on Facebook, your comment is deleted. So many people get their comments deleted for no reason and are told to go and get help from online support, that never answers anyway. It is a misleading company that is expensive, hard to maintain with a fussy family and will only post positive reviews, never negative. They had a google review that was successfully taken down. Google it and try and find a google review! People began to tell the truth about this company and even the google reviews were taken down.

The company owner offers free items for people to add as many people to her Facebook page as possible. Sad thing is, the gifts are usually vouchers and you often have to spend a lot of money to use the voucher. It is a complete ripoff. There are legit and great programs out there. This is not one of them.

 Hahaha that happens here!! At least we don't pay for the privilege of being deleted and ignored though!

 Can you recommend a better program?

 I have to agree with that they remove any negative posts. You will get a personal message from the admin about it. I had one removed because I asked people how did they make their hot chocolate because I did not like the texture as it was gritty to me. I will honestly never buy any of their shakes again. There are others out there that are better and cheaper. They do not even give you a free scoop with your first purchase. You have to pay for that. You will find that quite a few people are a staunch supporter of them and will back them up.

 Totally agree! Dodgy as company! I brought the shakes & they were foul! Every question or statement that even slightly reflected negatively on them was deleted and a private massage sent telling you it's not allowed 🙄🤬. Once i literally only asked what i could add tp the shakes to make them more palatable! Within minutes it was deleted! The Healthy Mummy is such a deceitful company! And i would be completely ashamed to to be associated with anyone promoting this product/company! Shame on you Healthy mummy founder and reps for duping vulnerable mums/women out of much needed funds! Disgraceful!

Am trying to cancel my subscription now, the website keeps taking me round in circles, there's no options to cancel! Have had to raise a support ticket to ask how to cancel!

 Good luck with that.

The customer service is terrible. I had a payment for a subscription come out with absolutely no warning & their only answer was you agreed to the terms & conditions. The program didn’t fit well with me or my families needs & I actually thought I had canceled months ago. It was too much hassle for what you get.

 I am going through exactly the same thing. I will be making a complaint to consumer affairs. There are new rules in place that state you have to inform someone of a renewal coming up.

 I had the same problem with my subscription just coming out without any warning. They told me also read the terms and conditions. I also cancelled months ago but they said there was no record of it. Not happy with the customer service.

 That happened to me too, I can’t get the on line admins on fb to reply

It found it a waste of money, had the same subscription issue, found the shakes tasted terrible and did not fille me up, and I find it really hard to believe all those posts on facebook from all those women who have losted so much weight. I think its setup.

 I completely agree!!

I’m not a mum by any means, but I did want to try their shakes and I still haven’t received them which is why I wanted to mention it here because I couldn’t find anywhere to review them. They claim on their website that if you order before 2pm it will be dispatched that day or if you order after that it will be sent out the next day. This is NOT TRUE AT ALL! I had to wait 7 days for one of my orders to be sent and 9 days for the other and it really annoyed me as they had over $100 of my money and weren’t sending the products.
Also I had another issue as before I purchased the smoothies, I had read a lot about their benefits for breastfeeding mums and these ingredients they had that supported new Mum and baby health and breastfeeding and I emailed them just to make sure and ask them if it was still safe for me (a 20 year old who’s not a mum) to take and make sure all the ‘mum and baby benefits’ in the drinks weren’t going to alter its purpose for me or still work essentially, and they completely ignored my concerns and just went on to tell me how many I Should buy and how often I should, nothing to do with my concerns whatsoever, and after the shipping experience above, I probably won’t be buying from them again. Definitley left a bad taste.

I purchased the new choc fudge that everyone's raving about and I think it's pretty yucky. Usually I use Chemist Warehouse Optislim VLCD Meal Replacement Shake in Chocolate and it is heaps nicer tasting and actually taste fantastic just using water and ice no need for any Almond Milk or the likes or adding fruit etc like the Healthy Mummy one's suggest. Delv was slow but that is ok its not as easy as it looks to get orders out fast and sometimes that would mean employing more staff to do so and the price then would be hiked up to cover that so lets be fair. No scoop included in the jar which is pretty crummy and makes it feel like buying a scoop is yet another way to for the company to make more money. On the good size I got heaps of weight resistance bands for free so that was a really nice extra thank you. I do like how the yummy mummy shakes have no fillers and are designed around Mums and what us mums need to feel good as we all know been a mum is darn exhausting these days. I will try a plain vanilla next time that might be better for my taste and I will buy a scoop as well.

I was a member for a few months but cancelled it in order to pay more important bills. I think Afterpay is offered for 12 month membership but I'm not sure about the others. If you join up the FB pages they post a lot of flash offers which can help you get a discount on memberships. You don't have to join to lose weight though. You can use the free recipes they post, I used the BMR calculator and just ate my normal meals and lost weight. The recipes are made to be family friendly. You can try the shakes if you like that sort of thing. I'm not a huge fan of them myself although my friends are. The community is really supportive though and I rarely see any kind of negativity which is perfect when you are looking for a supportive network.

 Great response I’m not the OP but grateful as wanting to try something like this too

I find they're more calorie focussed not fats....and admin could not tell me if cholesterol friendly

Its quite expensive and most meals cost you more as you have to buy all the ingredience needed that you wouldnt normally buy. Some bliss balls taste bad. But its depends on your taste. I was on it for 2 months no huge results.

I would definitely NOT recommend- it’s a complete scam! I also tried the skincare which I think was a disaster for the company.
