How crazy is it that our bodies are able to create, grow, and birth babies?! Pregnancy and childbirth all seemed so normal to me until I actually experienced it myself! That’s when I realized just how unbelievable our bodies are. In 9 months, our body changes enormously in order to grow a little human and at the end of it, we instinctively birth our baby. Pretty incredible, right!? Well, it’s not all beautiful. Postpartum is real and it is rough. It takes patience, rest, and the right products! Yes, you will be so enamored with that sweet little babe. But yes, after pushing a baby out, your body will also need some TLC.
It is so important to prepare for the discomforts that occur after childbirth. You will be so glad you did. I’m totally not trying to make it sound like postpartum is horrible, but it does bring its challenges. At least speaking from my own experience. When Earth Mama Angel Baby offered me a variety of their products for post-baby, I was so relieved! First off, I was super excited about the company because they are all natural and organic, which aligned perfectly with my all natural birth. Secondly, the products are just what a new mama needs. They played a big role in my recovery and really helped me ease back to my “normal”.
I had a natural, drug-free birth and ended up with two small tears in my perineum and labia. (TMI, but this is a postpartum post.) I loved using the New Mama Bottom Spray for cooling relief. Every trip to the bathroom I’d use my peri bottle, pat dry, and spray for instant soothing. It made everything feel so much better. I also used frozen maxi pads soaked in witch hazel as ice packs for “down there” to help the swelling and general soreness. That’s a must do for post-birth! Both the spray and the Mama Bottom Balm really helped in soothing and healing those other fun symptoms of postpartum, too. You know what I’m talkin’ about mamas. ;) The ingredient list is so honest and natural that you feel so good about using these products. It just makes sense. The balm and spray are made with lavender, olive oil, witch hazel, peppermint, shea butter, calendula flowers, cucumber, and other organic ingredients.
Postpartum Bath Herbs are also a must have. Made with sea salt, calendula flowers, organic oatmeal, and witch hazel, these herbal pads are perfect for easing the healing process and comforting those achey lady parts.
Another must is the Natural Nipple Butter. Whether you experience cracked, sore nipples like I did or not, you won’t regret having this organic, soothing cream. Super safe for mom and baby with key ingredients like olive oil, cocoa butter, and shea butter.
These products are simply heavenly. I can’t say enough about how much they eased the healing process and got me through all those yucky postpartum symptoms. I highly recommend them for all new mamas!
