As a planner/desperately trying-to-be organized type of gal, I’m narrowing down what things I will be packing for my labor and delivery. Ben came at 38 weeks, so with possibly 6 weeks to go, it’s time to start thinking about this. I’m definitely taking several of Bella Mama‘s products with me.
For labor: their Face and Body Spritzer ($11.50) will be wonderful during contractions and delivery. It comes in a 4.6 oz bottle made with pregnancy-safe herbs and essential oils (rose water, extracts of cucumber, green tea, rose bud, aloe verbal, as well as vitamins A, B & E.
After delivery: I plan on using the Sitz Bath with rose water and and green tea – for soaking those lady parts and their Nursing Salve with shea butter (I think you can guess what for).
Right now, I’m using their Belly Oil ($15 for 2 oz, $24 for 4 oz) and Belly Butter ($9.50) to keep those stretch marks at bay, as well as curing the extreme itchiness of my belly. I also love their Foot Salts ($14 for heaven in my footbath!). Besides smelling terrific, these products are so soothing!!
