Hera & Hypatia? What’s in the Lil Helper Name

At Lil Helper, we believe in solving problems with joy, empathy, and dignity. We strive to provide caring support for individuals and families because we are all human. Our bodies do awesome things. Breastfeeding is a superpower. Periods are normal. That's why we named our breastpads Hera and our menstrual pads Hypatia.

The Story Behind the Names

Hera, in Greek mythology, was known as the queen of the gods and the goddess of women and childbirth. She was believed to have created the milky way, symbolizing her nurturing nature. The story goes that when Hera was sleeping, Heracles nursed Hera’s devine milk, an act which would endow the baby with godlike qualities. When Hera woke and realized that she was breastfeeding an unknown infant, she pushed him away and the spurting milk became the Milky Way. Similarly, our Hera breastpads are designed to provide comfort and support during breastfeeding, allowing mothers to embrace their own nurturing abilities. Plus, they are absorbent enough to soak up the whole milky way!

On the other hand, Hypatia was an ancient Greek mathematician and philosopher who defied societal norms by pursuing education and intellectual pursuits. Legend has it that she once threw her used menstrual pad at a man who questioned her intelligence. Inspired by her boldness and determination, our Hyps menstrual pads are designed to empower women during their menstrual cycles.
