Blessed Event #13 Earth Mama Angel Baby Review and Giveaway

*THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED*


Giving birth is not only a joyful time for new moms but also stressful.
Add having major surgery in the mix and it can make for one miserable mama.

With Earth Mama Angel Baby's C-section recovery kit now mamas can have help getting through those hard recovery days after surgery. They can also rest assured knowing that the products they are putting on their healing bodies are free of chemicals and toxins.

Includes:

  • C-Mama Healing Salve 30 ml (1 oz)
  • Monthly Comfort Tea, 4 Tea Bags
  • Happy Mama Spray 30 ml (1 oz)
  • C-Section Recovery CD
A percentage of the proceeds from the C-Section Healing Kit are donated to The International Cesarean Awareness Network. ICAN is a nonprofit organization working to improve maternal-child health and prevent unnecessary cesareans through education and support for cesarean recovery and Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC).


When I contacted Earth Mama Angel Baby about reviewing their C-section healing kit, they were happy to send a kit out to me. This was my 4th C-section and knowing the pain I would be facing once again, I wanted something to help me get through that hard time.

The C-section healing kit has been awesome to have. The healing salve that is included is this kit has been especially helpful. It is made with 100% natural ingredients rich in Vitamin C, essential fatty acids and amino acids. It has certainly made a difference in the healing process of my cesarean scar. There is noticeably less redness, something I do not usually see only one month post-partum. In fact, knowing that this salve is free of toxins I have been using it on my new baby's surgical scar as well. (For those of you that have been reading my blog, you know that baby "J" had to have surgery last weekend to repair a muscle under his stomach).

Another product in this kit that I love is the Happy Mama Spray. When I am feeling a bit over stressed I take out my Happy Mama Spray and spritz my face. The uplifting scent right away lifts my spirits. What mama doesn't need a little natural uplift throughout her day?

This kit also includes a great CD with relaxation techniques and 20 minutes of relaxing music. Very nice. I think one thing we mama's forget to do after child birth is to relax. We try to get back into our normal routines as quick as possible and before our bodies are ready. We need to learn to relax. This CD helps you do that.



Who is Earth Mama Angel Baby?


Earth Mama Angel Baby's pregnancy, childbirth and baby products were, ahem, born of our sincere faith in the natural process of birthing babies. Supporting the pure process naturally with nature's gifts makes sense to us. We don't think of pregnancy as an illness, merely a phenomenal process that has many wonderful and sometimes difficult stages. We trust in the wise women who have historically exalted the glories and eased the common discomforts of pregnancy naturally.

We use the highest-quality, certified-organic or organically grown herbs and oils for our teas, bath herbs, gentle handmade soaps, salves, lotions and massage oils. Our products are 100% toxin-free, cruelty-free, vegan, and free from all artificial preservatives, fragrances and dyes. Our commitment to honor the earth and her valuable resources extends to our packaging as well - we use only eco-friendly recyclable or reused/resuseable packaging and packing materials. It's true - we are even the proud recipients of the BRAG (Business Recycling Award Group) for our green practices.

Just as our foremothers did, Earth Mama Angel Baby honors the ancient knowledge of natural and herbal remedies and plant medicine. The wisdom we rely on has been passed down from great-grandmother to grandmother to mother to daughter, which we combine with the safety and assurances of contemporary evidence-based research.

The mamas (and honorary-mama papas) at Earth Mama Angel Baby are a dedicated and diverse group of nurses, herbalists, labor and postpartum doulas, childbirth hypnotherapists, childbirth educators, women, mothers and grandmothers. And a father or two.

We strive to provide research, tools and products to empower women with knowledge about the earth's natural resources for nurturing themselves and their angel babies.

It is also our goal, in times of grief, to help provide real physical support, resource information and emotional and spiritual comfort to women who have experienced the loss of a baby. We created the Healing Hearts Baby Loss Comfort web site to specifically address these heartbreaking needs.

Growing, birthing, and nurturing babies are natural and wondrous processes. Let's care for our angel babies and ourselves - naturally.

Aveeno baby wash has a skin deep toxicity level of 4!
I am surprised to actually see most of the ingredients... this sounds like some crazy scarey stuff, like PEG-80 SORBITAN LAURATE!
I would love to try earth mama baby products for peace of mind!

My toxicity rating for the Huggies lotion I use on myself and my daughter was a 6! I couldn't believe the METHYLPARABEN ingredient--it is linked to all sorts of bad stuff! Earth Mama Angel Baby products definitely have a much lower toxicity!

I looked up 4 products and got a 16 total score! I was surprised that there is boric acid, which is a neuro toxin, in butt paste. Wow! Every single one of the EMAB products has a zero score, so cool!!!

1. I looked at No More Tears Shampoo by Johnson and Johnson which scored a 5! The baby Oil scored a 3 which wasn't so bad but would have preferred zero for everything we use on my little brother and sister. I also use a lot of Victoria's secret stuff and pretty much all of their products scored anywhere from a 3-10. Most in the 7-10 range!

2. the general term Fragrance seems to be in EVERYTHING! And it's not good for you at all!

3. Earth Mama products have scores of 0. My products are way higher than that!
