Earth Angel ...Earth Angel....Won't you be mine?!!!


I had totally forgotten about Earth Mama Angel Baby products until I commented on another pregnant momma's blog post. She mentioned she was itching and using that Cocoa Butter stuff...
I hated the smell of that stuff. When I'm pregnant I am soooo sensitive. I can smell stuff for days....and other smells blow me away. I swear I can detect that the baby is going to poo even before she needs a diaper change. (ok exaggeration but you get the point)

I became totally obsessed with my hands the other day. I was sniffing them and sniffing them because they smelled so good. I had just changed detergents again (had a coupon for Gain) and that stuff is knock your socks off terrific. I guess I had my hands in my shirt pockets for a while and then went to hold the baby...I was kissing her hands and got a whiff of mine. It was so fantasticly pretty smelling! I couldn't figure out what I had touched...so I'm sniffing the baby thinking she has some special new baby scent I wasn't aware of and then it hit me ...my detergent! I think I do laundry now just to smell it. When Hubs comes home I give him a super big hug and sniffffffffffffffff hello. He already knows I'm crazy so he doesn't think anything of it...

But I digress.
This blogger was talking about being itchy on her belly and boobs and I had that "ahhhh been there done that' thought.
When pregnant with Lils I searched and searched for oil or lotion that didn't make me want to puke or get a horrible headache....and I found Earth Mama Angel Baby products. Now these aren't the cheapest around, but I was willing to give it a shot at that point. Boy was I amazed! I love their Stretch Oil. It smelled like delicate flowers! Actually put me in a good mood! I blew through a bottle like there was no tomorrow. I felt hugely guilty, but my skin had never looked better and I didn't have that crazy "tear your skin off itching" feeling anymore. Better yet...this stuff can be used on your Perineal during labor. I do natural birth for my babes...and a midwife and birthing center. You don't know the difference labor was for me here instead of a hospital. I had the worst experiences laboring naturally in a hospital. With my 3rd baby ....they wouldn't admit me .....in fact they never called the dr ....and 3 hrs after being there I was ready to push...they told me not to b/c the dr wasn't called yet....too bad so sad. The nurse caught my daughter and I tore...I was sooo mad b/c when I asked her to massage the area she looked at me like I was a freak!!! So needless to say....midwife delivered baby #4 and it was the most incredible experience ever. She was by my side the whole time I was there and 2 hours after! Can you say that about your dr? She even did the perineal massage and ladies...I had a 8lb 11oz baby and a few hours later I couldn't even tell I had a baby. (Ok again slight exaggeration again, but making a point that being cut/tearing vs a massage makes a world of difference)

Enter Earth Mama Angel Baby products....I love their stuff and must find retailers where I can go in and buy it! I can't say enough about their products!

I noticed they had a "Something for Mama To Be" gift set w/all my favorites in it...gonna have to leave little post it notes around hubby's stuff to get him to get the hint! :o)

I can't believe I've never heard of this stuff! I'll be checking it out with the next babe.

I have a great midwife too, and while my son was born in a non-typical situation since he was premature, I enjoyed having a midwife through both pregnancies and my daughter's birth. They make such a difference!

I soooo want to do a midwifery or birthing center the next go around, but unfortunately I can't find one locally that is recommended. Now, if only I lived in Texas, I found some amazing places on line there!
Our co op carries Earth Mama products, I'll have to keep them in mind! :)

I'm no where near having a baby yet but this intrigues me.. What is the pernial massage? I've heard my momma girlfriends who talk about tearing and it starts to worry me. But wow girl 4 babies! I do like the idea of the midwife though.
