Editor’s Note: Nancy’s already given birth but had written this review beforehand so we’re airing it now – scroll down the blog for info on Nancy and her new baby:
I’m really close to giving birth. I’m almost 39 weeks pregnant and frankly not doing so well right now. I have felt so amazing this pregnancy, so I guess if the last week stinks, I’ll have to deal! Right now I can barely keep anything down because I’m nauseous all the time and my heartburn is awful too. I am taking something OTC, but it doesn’t always work. My ankles are also very swollen and my blood pressure is high (but thankfully not as high as with my first pregnancy). Sleeping is another issue (or rather not sleeping). But our sweet baby girl will be with us very soon!
Just the other day, I got a package from Earth Mama Angel Baby that completely lifted my spirits! The kind Earth Mamas sent me some relief. This is the first time I actually teared up when I got a product to review in the mail!!!
I just started using their Earth Mama Heartburn Tea – a delicious organic herbal tea to combat heartburn. It made me so feel much better. It was also yummy and it was easy to use the loose tea to make it. Their website give directions on how to make tea using loose tea. I have also been soothing my aching back with their Hot Spot Labor Sock – a NICE microwavable herb- filled labor companion (made of rice and calming lavender blossoms). Tonight, as soon as my son is in bed, I will also soaking my swollen ankles in their Happy Feet (an organic Foot Soak for tire, swollen, tootsies).
Thank you Earth Mamas! I also used your birth plan template to make my birth plan (yes, you can even do them for C-Sections!)
