Part of the MBP Maternity & Newborn Guide
It's been an incredibly wonky fall and winter in North Carolina. We're used to mild temperatures, but these past two seasons have been a continuous string of flip-flops with the weather. I thought that being super pregnant during the summertime was tough, but as it turns out, being preggo in the wintertime is just as rough! I still feel overheated at times, my feet are still swollen, and to top it all off, the weather is wreaking havoc on my skin. I needed a solution for my ailing skin, and for all of those little joys that come along with pregnancy.
Pregnancy is a beautiful, yet trying time for many women. We're so delighted to be bringing a beautiful little life into the world, and at the same time, we're dealing with so many changes within our bodies. Most moms I know (including myself) don't take proper care of themselves, and pregnancy is just one of those times in life where taking care of yourself is a must.
Earth Mama Angel Baby Organics knows a thing or two about helping moms take care of themselves, and their precious little ones. They are on a mission to provide safe, herbal alternatives for pregnant, postpartum and breastfeeding women, and babies of all ages, and to help educate people about traditional plant medicine and safe personal care. They manufacture natural and organic products that work, combining generations of women's wisdom and traditional plant medicine with the safety and assurances of contemporary evidence based research. If it doesn't measure up to Mama's standards, it doesn't leave the building.
I received the lovely Pregnancy Essentials Bundle from Earth Mama Angel Baby Organics.
The bundle was filled with six products, and was packaged in an adorable reusable tote bag.
I was excited to try these products suited for pregnancy. When you're expecting, it can be hard to know what is safe to use. I felt good about using all of these natural products, and couldn't wait to see the results. My skin has really taken a beating during this pregnancy. I haven't felt like I have experienced that 'glow'. Instead, I have just felt like my skin has been dry and dull, no matter how much water I drink or how many vitamins I take.
Earth Mama Body Butter
Every mom needs a nice, soothing body butter during pregnancy. Our skin goes through so many changes during these nine months, it can be hard to care for it properly. Baby is taking a lot of nutrients from mom, so mom needs extra attention. The body butter is soft and creamy, and glides onto the skin smoothly. A lot of body butters can feel greasy or clumpy, or leave a mess afterward. This body butter is so lovely- it glides onto the skin like water, and is light to touch. It leaves the skin feeling so very soft and smooth, and my experience has been wonderful. My skin was so very dry, and within days after using this body butter, I noticed quite an improvement. I also love the scent- it's very relaxing.
The body butter comes in a pump bottle, which is awesome! I love not having to dip my fingers into a tub of it. The pump gives me quick and easy access to this soothing lotion.
When I was pregnant with B, I didn't really bother a whole lot with oils or stretch creams. This time around, I am already noticing a few marks here and there. I am using the stretch oil 2-3 times a week, after my shower. It's a smooth oil, and doesn't leave a greasy residue. It helps with the natural stretching of the skin over bellies, breasts and hips during pregnancy. I have only been using this for a short while, but already love it, and plan to continue to use it after Baby S arrives.
Morning Wellness Spray
I have had more nausea than expected during this pregnancy. My prenatal vitamins have been making me feel queasy- even at seven months into the pregnancy! I also find that if I'm not well hydrated, I become lightheaded and nauseous. The Morning Wellness Spray is a lovely aromatherapy blend that helps to ward off the queasies. I wish I'd had this earlier on in my pregnancy, when I was experiencing such terrible morning sickness! Just a little spritz is all you need for a little lift.
I noticed pretty quickly after I became pregnant, how sensitive I was to the scents in my daily body wash. I honestly didn't give it much thought at first, but eventually, I had to ditch my old standbys, because I couldn't handle the strong, perfume-like fragrances anymore. This gentle, cleansing wash is in a ginger grapefruit scent, and castile soap. Ginger has worked wonders for me while pregnant, helping to alleviate nausea. I love the calm, gentle scent of this body wash, and love the way my skin feels after I wash with it.
Mint Herbal Lip Balm
My lips have also been extra dry during pregnancy. I never really expected it, although it does make sense between the nutrients going to baby, and the dryness of winter. Many lip balms tend to dry my lips out even more, but not this one. I love the soothing mint scent and flavor of the lip balm. Mint is very soothing (I love mint tea when my tummy is upset), and it's been wonderful to use these past few weeks. This is definitely going into my hospital bag when it's time to get packed up and ready for baby's arrival.
Mama-to-be Tea Sampler
I have been semi-wary of tea during this pregnancy. In the beginning, when I could no longer stand the scent or acidity of coffee, As my pregnancy continued, I found that some herbal teas were giving me heartburn and making me feel nauseous. The Mama-to-be Tea Sampler is a lovely selection of teas for mommies. I have been enjoying these teas in the afternoons or sometimes even in the evenings, when I am winding down for the day. Sipping some warm, soothing tea is a great way to relax and feel pampered.
Ginger-minty Organic Morning Wellness Tea is a comforting way to help get you through those morning queasies that often last all day. Delicious and soothing Organic Heartburn Tea was lovingly created to help turn down the furnace in your belly. Organic Peaceful Mama Tea combines calming herbs in a delectable blend to help ease a mama's busy head and agitated body. And yummy Organic Third Trimester Tea blends beneficial herbs especially to nurture all those mama parts gearing up for your angel baby's arrival.*
All Earth Mama teas are naturally caffeine free, in biodegradable, easy to brew tea bags. Certified by Oregon Tilth. Steep, sip and enjoy!
