MAMA MUST HAVES with EARTH MAMA ORGANICS
This post is sponsored by Earth Mama Organics, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Earth Mama Organics provides women with effective, natural and organic products for pregnancy, postpartum recovery, breastfeeding and baby care.
I have had the pleasure of trying and using products that fall into each of the categories listed above over the course of my motherhood journey that started in 2016 when I first found out that I was pregnant with my daughter, AG.
Grounded in Nature. Powered by Love.
Earth mama Organics was formulated in 2002 by nurse and herbalist, Melinda Olson who combined her traditional herbal wisdom with the safety and assurances of contemporary evidence-based research. Olson’s interest was fueled by her deep desire to educate people about their innate ability to combat everyday toxicity.
Every product in the Earth Mama Organic’s lineup is rated ONE on the EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database, the lowest hazard rating a product can achieve.
Earth Mama believes in the body’s ingenuity, and its innate ability to compensate for everyday toxins. But, like all systems, it can get overloaded. Each ingredient in every Earth Mama product is very thoughtfully and carefully researched and chosen to safely support the body, using nature as our pharmacy.
Trusted by doctors, midwives, neonatal intensive care units, lactation consultants and mamas worldwide.
Motherhood is a wild ride. It’s crazy and exciting and fun, and it turns you upside down and it takes every ounce of strength, courage, humor and wisdom – no matter how you become a mama. We’ve been there and we’re here to tell you: you’ve got this, you’re not alone.
Organic Herbal Teas
Tea is one of the most discussed beverages when it comes to safety during pregnancy. Drinking tea brings many benefits. It boosts the immune system, protects your heart and antioxidants from tea can protect you against cancer. Tea is a gift from Mother Nature. However, when you are expecting, you must be extra careful. Not all herbs are safe, and some are even dangerous to your unborn baby and therefore should be avoided. A brand trusted by mothers is Earth Mama Organics.
Earth Mama offers a variety of herbal teas that are all USDA Certified 100% organic, certified Kosher and Non-GMO Project Verified.
I have been getting my steep on with their herbal teas since the very start and have used them for morning sickness, during each trimester of my pregnancy and even during my postpartum nursing journey for lactation benefits.
Earth Mama’s comforting teas have helped me through bouts of morning sickness as well as aided in boosting my milk supply.Drinking pregnancy-specific brewed teas was also a great way for me to hydrate my body while pregnant and nursing when I didn’t necessarily want to drink bland water and needed a little more flavor and/or variety.
All Earth Mama teas are formulated to safely — and effectively — address common issues experienced during the entire journey of motherhood. We’re talking pregnancy, postpartum, and breastfeeding, or more daily challenges — like monthly period cramps, or a raw throat. Trusted by nurses, doctors, midwives, lactation consultants, and most importantly, mamas, this tea comes in individual, easy-to-brew tea bags, and is safe enough to be enjoyed by the whole family.
Teas that I have had the pleasure of trying thus far are the following: Organic Third Trimester Tea, Organic Periodic Tea, Organic Milkmaid Tea, Organic Rasberry Leaf Tea, and Organic Morning Wellness Tea. I highly recommend each and every one and am excited to try more of their offerings including the “No More Milk Tea” when it comes to wean Baby #2.
Take Care “Down There”
Earth Mama’s postpartum recovery comfort care products are formulated to help new mamas while they rest, heal, connect, inhale and memorize every eyelash, tiny toe, crease and dimple on their newborn. They are formulated with herbs traditionally used to comfort perineal soreness, episiotomy, hemorrhoids, and Cesarean section.
I had the opportunity of trying the Organic Herbal Sitz Bath, Herbal Perineal Spray and the Organic Perineal Balm during my postpartum care with Baby #2. All three of the products were stored strategically in my bathroom and placed on display prior to the arrival of my little guy and they did not dissapoint when time came to take them out of their respective packaging.
My favorite of the three products ? Without a doubt the Herbal Perineal Spray.
The Herbal Perineal Spray is a soothing touch-free herbal mist for pregnancy and postpartum use, with a clever upside down sprayer so it’s easier to reach hard to get places. With cucumber, organic witch hazel and organic essential oils, it’s safe for both before and after birth. The spray is free of parabens, propellants, benzocaine or artificial fragrance. The cooling effect that the spray provided as well as the no-fuss mist applicator was much needed during those first few days home from the hospital.
Earth Mama Organics believes the postpartum period is a time to connect, rest and heal:
You just had a baby! Snuggling, nursing and loving on your little newborn is your only job right now. You two
need to get to know each other, and build on the imprinting that happens in the first few moments after the baby is
born. In addition to their tried and true products Earth Mama provides a free, downloadable Lying-In Plan, created to help guide expectant mamas through thinking about their own healing, and to make the most of the postpartum time they do have. I referenced this plan when thinking about my own postpartum recovery period and it helped me understand the importance of rest and giving myself time to bond with the baby and adjust to being a mother of two.
As mothers it is so important to love our bodies and care for our bodies with products that are not only safe for us BUT also safe for the babies we are growing, nursing, caring for and/or anticipating conceiving/ delivering. Finding a brand that can be by your side for each and every stage of your motherhood journey is a game changer and that is exactly what Earth Mama Organics offers.
Earth Mama’s Core Beliefs of Do No Harm, Nature Is Our Pharmacy, Education Empowers, Honor the Body’s Ingenuity and Mama’s Need One Another are beliefs that resonate with all expecting, first-time and veteran mothers alike.
