A Review of Healthy Mama Remedies for Pregnancy, Nursing and Beyond

Healthy Mama is a company that was founded by a pregnant mom who was frustrated and confused when trying to find over the counter products to help her with her pregnancy related ailments. Founder, Rachel, and her husband decided to do something about this and Healthy Mama was born! Healthy Mama has a wide range of products perfect for pregnant and nursing moms. From morning sickness to energy boosters, Healthy Mama is the go to for pregnant and nursing moms!

I was sent a lovely gift basket from Healthy Mama. In this gift basket I received Herbal Tea Calm The Crazy, Constipation Relief Move It Along, Organic Morning Sickness Drops Nip the Nausea, Prenatal Vitamin and DHA Supplement Be Well Rounded, Pain Relief PM eaZZZe the Pain, Heartburn Relief Tame the Flame, Pregnancy Pain Relief Shake That Ache, Boost It Up Caffeine Free Protein Energy Drink, and Herbal Breastfeeding Tea Make the Milk! All of these are pregnancy safe except the Herbal Breastfeeding Tea Make the Milk.

I am not currently pregnant so I have not tried most of these myself. I am nursing and am extremely careful about taking medicine (read- I take NOTHING when I feel yucky). I had a fever of 104 a few weeks ago. It was painful, the worst sickness ever! Because my fever was so high it was important to get it below the 104 mark and keep it there. I took one dose of Pregnancy Pain Relief, Shake that Ache and my fever came down! It was wonderful to have a nursing safe fever reducer to turn to. I didn’t have to fret about what medicine to take. Pregnancy Pain Relief, Shake that Ache is great for headaches, backaches, muscular aches, breast tenderness, mastitis pain, reducing fevers and more.

My favorite product from Healthy Mama, by far, is the Boost It Up Caffeine Free Protein Energy Drink. I do not drink caffeine and there are days I really need more energy. Any new mom (or any mom for that matter!) attest to needing more energy. I had the Boost It Up Caffeine Free Protein Energy Drink mango flavor. It was smooth and delicious. I couldn’t tell it was an energy drink. Boost It Up Caffeine Free Protein Energy Drink was not powdery, chalky or yucky. I actually had to pace myself on drinking it, it was that good! Boost It Up Caffeine Free Protein Energy Drink contains no artificial sweeteners or flavor, no preservatives, no gluten, no caffeine and no high fructose corn syrup. This is an energy drink you can feel good about and enjoy!

The Herbal Tea Calm The Crazy is a great stomach-calming  tea. It is made with spearmint, peppermint, chamomile and raspberry leaf. It smells delicious and tastes wonderful too. I will definitely have to try this during my next pregnancy!

Constipation Relief Move It Along is great for pregnancy and postpartum. If you are not so keen on taking pills, Constipation Relief Move It Along can be crushed up and dissolved in water. If you don’t need constipation relief during pregnancy, you will definitely need it during the first week after giving birth! A stool softener is a MUST for the first few days postpartum!

Organic Morning Sickness Drops Nip the Nausea are very yummy! Organic Morning Sickness Drops Nip the Nausea have a ginger taste to them but it is not overwhelming. I will definitely have to try these during my first trimester!

Prenatal Vitamin and DHA Supplement Be Well Rounded comes in two bottles, one bottle of prenatal vitamins and one of DHA. The pills are not too big and easy to swallow. Prenatal Vitamin and DHA Supplement Be Well Rounded is FD&C dye-free and gluten free and comes with 60 pills in each bottle.

Pain Relief PM eaZZZe the Pain is a great pain reliever and sleep aid. This product is not recommended for nursing mamas.

Heartburn Relief Tame the Flame is a great minty chewable way to help ease heartburn.  Herbal Breastfeeding Tea Make the Milk is made up of anise, fennel and fenugreek all of which help increase milk production. Herbal Breastfeeding Tea Make the Milk is yummy! Herbal Breastfeeding Tea Make the Milk is not for pregnant mamas.
