Natural Gifts For The Mama-To-Be
Expectant moms can be inundated with well-meaning advice and opinions, and while it can be very exciting, I am sure it can be overwhelming, too. It is important that an expectant mom feels special and taken care of. Providing her with the gift of natural products is one way her help her feel this way. Natural products can also help guide her on her pregnancy journey without overwhelming her with more advice.
One of the first products an expectant mom may want is a stretch-mark product to facilitate the graceful growth of her belly. Make her feel special by thinking of the gift before she does. Look for butters like cocoa, and oils like almond, coconut, or olive. Check the ingredient list to ensure the product does not contain perfumes, dyes, or other synthetic chemicals. Remember, what goes on her goes in her, and what is in her is in her baby. One product to try is Mother’s Special Blend, which only has four ingredients and a light scent that won’t bother the Mama-To-Be. If you want something with a soothing scent try OG Mama Belly Butter with Lavender Essential Oil.
You can also take care of the expectant mom and baby by providing her with a high-quality and environmentally friendly soap. Soap is one of the most frequently used products. Not only is soap on a mother’s body, but she is also inhaling the smells. Buying her and the soon-to-be-baby a natural soap can guarantee that she does not use harsh synthetic chemicals or inhale irritating smells. Look for natural soaps with plant-based ingredients like vegetable oils, butters, and essential oils. Try out Happy Mama Hand to Toe Wash or Badger’s Botanical Body Soap in Unscented, Lemongrass and Ginger, or Lavender.
These are easy gifts to find at local health food stores or online. It is also a simple and healthy way to help an expectant mom feel special and cared for. What are some natural gifts you like to give a Mama-To-Be?
