Some of our Favorite Wellness Products for Postpartum
Posted on Tuesday, May 24, 2016 in The Conscious Living Blog by Lee Wassem
Hey mamas! Today we are talking about some of our favorite wellness products for postpartum. Many of us might agree that the time after pregnancy and birth is one of the toughest times of a mama's life. Our hormones are going crazy, you have a new baby at home and you might be breastfeeding around the clock, among one thousand other things. Others might think its a breeze! (and if this is you, kudos to you!) Luckily, there are many products available to support our health and wellbeing, and make this period a bit easier on us. We have chosen a few of our favorites just for you!
First up is New Chapter's NEW Perfect Postnatal Multivitamin. These multivitamins are made with organic vegetables and herbs to support energy, mood and provide the necessary vitamins and minerals recommended specifically for breastfeeding women, including whole-food cultured Iron, Vitamin B6, Iodine and Vitamin D3. They are so gentle on your stomach as well! We love everything about this company. Every New Chapter multivitamin is cultured with whole foods and beneficial probiotics to create a whole new level of nourishment for mom and baby that’s gentle to take, even on an empty stomach. It doesn't get much better than that!
Garden of Life is one of our favorite supplement companies. Their products are Certified Organic, Non GMO, Vegan, Kosher, Certified Gluten Free and the list goes on. Their line of Dr. Formulated Probiotics focus on daily support for digestive and immune system health. We love their Once Daily 30 Billion probiotic which offers a convenient, one capsule per day formula made from diverse strains of 14 beneficial probiotics. Sometimes, postpartum, we need a little help "getting things moving down there" and these probiotics do the trick! ;)
Our Belly Butter is a rich conditioning treatment for stretching skin during pregnancy. Helps to soothe itching – and while there is no magic potion to prevent stretch marks, our Belly Butter is remarkable at supporting the skin’s elasticity during pregnancy and postpartum.
Our Belly Oil is a powerful blend of nutrient-rich oils to support skin as it stretches during pregnancy, by moisturizing and aiding healthy skin cell regeneration. For use postpartum to assist in reducing redness associated with stretch marks or scarring.
Pssst...Heather wrote a great blog post here on the differences between our Belly Oil and Belly Butter. When during the course of pregnancy should they be used? Should they be used together? Can one be used without the other? Which one is best for preventing stretch marks? Hop on over to that post for more details!
Lastly, our favorite Breathe Balm! When pregnant, many of us had that "ah-ha" moment when learning about toxic, conventional products. It's hard to find products that are safe for both you and your baby. When using our 100% organic Breathe Balm, you don't have to worry about synthetic ingredients and chemicals! Made with organic essential oils of eucalyptus, tea tree, lavender and cedar, our Breathe Balm will provide you with support during cold and flu season, NATURALLY!
* Please remember, the above are products that we have loved during postpartum (and beyond), but they might not be right for you! We are not Drs.; just mamas sharing our favorite products. Please consult with your physician before using any new supplements. xo
