5 Postpartum Must-Have Products For Mom
|This post is sponsored by Earth Mama Organics, but the content/opinions expressed here are my own.|
Sitting down to round-up my favorite postpartum necessities made me quickly realize how much my boys are growing up. I feel like they were born yesterday and here they are now 9 months old! Although this was the first time I wasn’t allowed to video the experience, I still remember their birth vividly. It was a lot more intense than my first two and with obvious reason of course: I pushed out TWO over 7 lbs humans 17 minutes apart so it’s not something one forgets easily! I remember my recovery just as vividly and am so thankful I had some major necessities on hand from the wonderful Earth Mama Organics that truly helped make the days after the boys’ arrivals much more doable. I am going to share with you all exactly what those 5 postpartum must-have products I had on hand were for all the new/soon to be new moms out there!
Before I share those you can relive my birth story here! What an adventure that was!
Earth Mama Organics has been a long time favorite brand of mine! You can read my Earth Mama Organics Picks for Baby here for after your little one has arrived as well! Earth Mama Organics is so wonderful because when it comes to postpartum they have you covered in the recovery comfort care department with their thoroughly thought out products designed JUST for moms!
Whether you had a c-section or a vaginal birth Earth Mama Organics has you covered in many ways and you can check out all their products on their website! As for me, here are my 5 postpartum must-have products for mom:
Herbal Perineal Spray: Pack this in your hospital bag! You will thank me later! This herbal mist spray is designed to help you heal after childbirth touch free. It’s super thought out spray bottle will ensure easy application for new mamas. With natural ingredients that are traditionally used to help a mother heal this is the one thing you can do to truly help your discomfort in those early days. I started using long before the boys came too and I feel like it ultimately helped prepare my body but at the very least it certainly helped with the discomfort I was feeling in the days after delivery! Make sure you still use your peri-bottle to clean first then apply this after for even more relief!
Organic Perineal Balm: Pair this with the above and you’ll be feeling much better in no time. If you tear or have an episiotomy this really helps soothe any discomfort that may come from that. Nobody tells you that you’ll have a hard time even sitting down after childbirth and although, in the moment it feels like you’ll never feel the same, you absolutely will and this will help you do just that! My tip for extra cooling “down there” is to put this in the refrigerator for an even better level of comfort!
Organic Herbal Sitz Bath: You will be begging for comfort after your little one arrives and this product can help you in SO many ways! Before baby arrives you can use this to make the most epic “postpartum padsicles” which you can see a super easy DIY for HERE. For single use they come in a brilliant individually packed herbal sachets and are perfect to keep with you to use as a compress in the early days or for baths as your allowed.
Organic Periodic Tea: There is no nice way to say it but when it comes to postpartum cramping and all your organs finding their home again it just isn’t the most comfortable of times. And don’t even get me started on that first postpartum period. This isn’t meant to scare you new moms but I just dont think it is talked about enough! We see all these joyous moments of postpartum (and there are plenty dont get me wrong! Take one look at your beautiful fresh newborn and you’ll know what I mean) BUT there is plenty of “ugly truth” to be said too and that is where this periodic tea comes in. This is the ultimate postpartum support you can offer yourself as the natural and organic ingredients are designed for just that. This periodic tea was specially formulated to ease symptoms of PMS and premenstrual cramping and tastes amazing too!
Earth Mama Lip Balms: Another fun postpartum symptom that nobody warns us about is the ever dreaded dry lips. I swear it starts in childbirth and lasts for weeks after. Maybe it’s the lack of water or care for yourself while spending every hour caring for that totally dependent newborn but whatever the cause it happens to all of us! I love these lip balms because they soothe your lips wonderfully! Just like their other products these lip balms are curated with organic herbs and oils but this time also with tasty flavors you will love!
Having a baby is an experience that every single mom will remember for the rest of their lives. We quickly forget all the “ugly” parts of childbirth once we’re on the other side and the true magic of it all takes over. This is going to be some of the best years of your life and I just hope that in the moment you will find comfort in these products above because at the end of the day you have to take care of yourself too, Mom. Enjoy!
