Earth Mama Organics Herbal Sitz Bath

(V-Kit and Non-Breastfeeding Kit only)

Take care “down there” with herbal compresses filled with organic herbs traditionally used to soothe and comfort “down there” during pregnancy or after childbirth. Packed in easy-to-use, individual herbal sachets, each one is perfect for one use. The compresses can be cooled and gently “tucked” to help ease those pretty places, or use the brewed infusion to make postpartum padsicles or use as a sitz bath. Which is kind of like making tea for your nethers. Which is a totally lovely and perfectly polite thing to do.

A QUICK HOW-TO

Lay herbal pad in a shallow bowl and cover with boiling water. Steep for approx. 5 min., and let cool. Very gently drain extra liquid from pad, leaving it moist but not soaking. Be gentle and don’t squeeze! The herbal pads are fragile and can burst. Cool in the fridge and gently apply moist pad directly to perineum. Ahhhhhhh.

But wait! Postpartum padsicles are a thing, and they’re great: get crafty and use the healing herbally goodness in another way. Save the remaining liquid, pour onto a regular postpartum pad, and freeze it for a clever little perineal ice pack. Trust us – it’s one of life’s secret little wins.

PQ Tip: We recommend checking with your doctor or midwife before using this product if you have had a C- section or vaginal tearing. If you haven’t had either, we recommend using after your first postpartum poop.

milkmaid tea

Earth Mama Organics Organic Milkmaid Tea
(Switch out Booby Boons for tea for Vegan moms)
(V-Kit and C-section kit only)

Who knew that one day you’d be thinking about your own milk production — a lot?  Our organic Milkmaid Tea is a fragrant, comforting blend of organic herbs traditionally used to help support healthy breast milk production and promote healthy lactation. Tasty iced or hot, with fenugreek, fennel, milk thistle and other galactagogues (not space travel, which would be cool, but hey … breastfeeding’s pretty cool too) — plus the power of nettle and raspberry leaf Yes please!

Organic Milkmaid Tea is NOT FOR USE DURING PREGNANCY. Many galactagogue herbs are not recommended for use during pregnancy in greater than culinary amounts.

  

Pea in a Pod Nipple Butter

(V-Kit and C-Section Kit only)

This nipple butter is a rich, natural ointment made with organic Cocoa, Shea & Mango butters, as well as healing lanolin- the best ingredient to soothe, nourish and moisturize sore and cracked nipples. Safe for both nursing mamas and babies, a little of our butter will go a very long way.

PQ Tip: Apply sparingly to nipples as needed after nursing. May be used prior to birth if nipples become dry or flaky. While many mamas like to wipe the area clean prior to nursing, our butter is safe and will absorb quickly into the skin after application and so there should be none left on the skin the next time your wee babe needs a snack!

PQ Tip: When my baby began teething, she would get rashes underneath her chin from drooling so much. I would apply this nipple butter under her chin and the rash and dryness would go away. It added a barrier on her chin against the saliva.

 

Earth Mama Organics No More Milk Tea 

(In Non-Breastfeeding Box only)

Sometimes, a soothing cup of tea is an act of kindness. Whether from weaning or baby loss, excess or unwanted breast milk can intensify discomfort during an emotional time and cause sore, aching, engorged breasts. Comforting Organic No More Milk Tea is formulated with anti-galactagogue herbs including sage, peppermint and parsley, traditionally used to help reduce the production of breast milk during when it is no longer desired. Bonus: a tangy note in the form of Hibiscus flower.

Organic No More Milk Tea is NOT FOR USE DURING PREGNANCY. Many breast milk reducing herbs should be avoided during pregnancy except in small, culinary amounts.

The Postpartum Queen's Guide to Survive, Thrive & Slay

(In V-Kit, C-Section Kit, and Non-Breastfeeding kit)

Postpartum Queen's Co- Owner and mother of two- Christine Bassit has written a 9 chapter short story book about her own postpartum experiences and experiences of other women. She discusses everything from the first horrific postpartum poop, postpartum sex, going from 1 child to 2, ways new dads can help their partners, postpartum bodies, her battle with postpartum depression and more.

"When you become a mom you go from being a woman that only has to take care of herself to now being responsible for keeping a little human alive. It changes you. The way you think, the relationship you have with your partner (sometimes for better, sometimes for worse). It changes the way you act with your friends, especially if you are in a different stage of life than them. It changes the way you think of your career, and it can change the way you view your body, your mind and your self-worth. It’s a big change, and any resources you can arm yourself with to make it through this transition are a positive. I hope that as you read them, they will make you laugh, make you happy, make you cry, give you comfort, and most of all know, let you know that you are not alone."- Christine
