Earth Mama Angel Baby Give-away

Today we have a giveaway from new TLB sponsor Earth Mama Angel Baby.  Cruelty-free, certified vegan, kosher, and 100% free from toxic ingredients, EMAB products are safe for the entire family.  The baby shampoos and washes are our favorites and we’re so impressed with how the foaming bottles mean a little bit goes a long way.  I’ve loved all the EMAB products I’ve had the chance to try, from their teas to the Angel Baby Bottom Balm, their New Mama Bottom Spray to their massage oil, these products are not only safe but are also wonderfully soothing.  In addition to their wonderful products, EMAB has made it a priority to support families, providing education and care resources.  Read on for details on this giveaway opportunity and an interview with this company that so loves on mamas and babies all over.  Be sure to visit their blog  for informative parenting articles and more.

TLB: What would you like readers to know about your company?

Melinda: The one most important thing I’d love people to really understand is this: these products were formulated for pregnant women to use. If it’s going ON and IN a pregnant woman, it is literally being given to her unborn baby. The herbs used in Earth Mama products have stood the test of generations, and their safe use is supported by evidence based research for their use on the most fragile population on the planet. If it’s safe enough for a pregnant woman, it’s safe for anybody.

TLB: How did Earth Mama Angel Baby come about?

Melinda: I didn’t originally intend to start an organic herbal manufacturing company. Every single product I formulated was created to help support friends and family for one problem or another. I am a nurse, and went on a personal quest to formulate pure, organic products that combined traditional plant medicine with evidence-based research. At Earth Mama we study the safest herbs, pore over evidence-based research, and formulate the safest products possible, the safest products a company can make in this industry, and products that are as close to the earth as can be.

TLB: What are your favorite breastfeeding memories as a mom?

Melinda: I have many unforgettable breastfeeding moments. One of the first was sitting in the dark, exhausted, hearing nothing but perfect stillness and the wonderful breathing and swallowing noises my tiny baby made. I was filled with a love greater than any I had ever felt in my whole life.

Another was when I realized that breastfeeding wasn’t just nourishment for my baby, it was also comfort. At times, all my baby needed, the thing that made it all better, whether it was an owie or overtiredness, was the comfort of my breast.

The other thing I loved is that when I left the house and had to pack 92 changes of clothing and 42 extra diapers, I didn’t have to worry about whether or not I had enough bottles. If we got stuck in traffic or missed a plane, I brought dinner with us!

TLB: What is one tip that helped you in your breastfeeding journey that you’d like to pass on to other moms?

Melinda: On day two after my first child was born I was home alone. I didn’t have support or models of breastfeeding, but I also didn’t have any expectations of problems. I didn’t know there could be problems. In my innocence, I just assumed it was the way babies ate their food, so any difficulty that came up I just figured out! There weren’t the incredibly invaluable resources mamas have now, like lactation consultants and amazing breastfeeding resources like The Leaky Boob. I think I’d say to breastfeeding mamas, the first time you dig a trench you’re gonna get blisters. But by the time you’ve dug 5 trenches you’ll have some calluses and you’ll know that holding the spade a certain way works better for you than another way. By the time you’ve dug 10 you won’t even think about any of that. There’s a break-in period for breastfeeding, and there’s value in staying with it. In the end there is an amazing reward, not just the best nutrition for your baby, and the bond you’ll have for life, but the knowledge that you did this amazing, miraculous thing. It’s like boot camp, you asked your body to do something difficult, and it responded with exhaustion and confusion and then showing you that it was capable of doing it.

Mother’s Day Wishes- Motherlove Herbal Company Nurturing Life Giftbox Giveaway

For this Mother’s Day Motherlove is giving away one Nurturing Life Giftbox.  I was given a Nurturing Life Giftbox and absolutely love it, used the birth and baby oil while in labor, my nipples love the nipple cream, and everything else in the giftbox has been put to good use over the last couple of weeks.  My favorite gift for expecting moms and new breastfeeding moms.  It has been a privilege to work with Motherlove Herbal Company (makers of More Milk and More Milk Plus) and I have completely enjoyed getting to know Kathryn Higgens and her eldest daughter Silencia over the past year.  Making quality herbal products that are of the highest quality, safe, and organic, Motherlove invests in Mother Earth and mothers of the earth through their company and their non-profit, The Nurturing Life Foundation.  Please read on to learn more about this trustworthy company from Silencia, the daughter of the mom that started Motherlove and now the Director of Marketing of her mother’s company.  This mother and daughter team go above and beyond in supporting mothers and promoting breastfeeding.  

Kathryn and Silencia

TLB:  What should TLB readers know about Motherlove Herbal Company?

Silencia:  Motherlove was started by my mom, Kathryn Higgins, over 20 years ago — when she was a new mother looking for natural options for her own pregnancy. The company has remained true to its roots and never compromised on quality. We were the first natural product line specifically created for pregnancy and breastfeeding. Today we make products for pregnancy, breastfeeding, postpartum and baby care. Our focus is on herbal products designed to nurture, soothe and heal women and babies.


TLB:  How does Motherlove support mothers?

Silencia:  Providing clean and simple products that work. Our More Milk Plus has helped thousands of women increase their breast milk supply and continue to breastfeed their babies. We donate a percentage of every sale to our Nurturing Life Foundation, which funds projects for low income moms, at risk kids and families who need extra support.


TLB:  What was your favorite mother’s day present?

Silencia:  I like to cook for my mom. She has trouble finding the time to cook (plus she doesn’t love cooking) so it is something that I can do to give her a little more time in the day to garden.


TLB:  What do you wish for all mothers this mother’s day?

Silencia:  I hope that every mom has at least one day a year they feel appreciated. Being a mother is such hard work and having a day to acknowledge that hard work is important.
