  1. Birth Stories
    Warning: This post may be something a person using any type of hypnobabies would prefer to avoid. Or anyone wanting to hear a positive story. These are mainly the negative aspects of my birth story and my partial criticisms of hypnobabies. I have questions that I need to get resolved because I...

    I have a couple of varicose veins in my vulva. One in the outer labia & one in the perineum. They aren't really painful, mostly annoying. I'm a bit worried about what they'll do during birth. I put the Earth Mama Angel Baby bottom balm on them daily. Any other suggestions? Anyone else have...
  4. I'm Pregnant
    my LMP was April 25th so I am approx 3w5d along, and my period is technically due tomorrow and tonight I had BROWN spotting - the sludgy kind. It was only (sorry TMI) a spot on my underwear, and when I wiped I didn't see any pink. just brown. So old blood. Is this implantation spotting from...

  6. Unassisted Childbirth
    Anyone know any reasons or cures for itchiness? I am not sure why I get itchy sometimes, but it usually comes at night before bed... I think it might be diet related bc 1. I do not use harsh chemicals in my home, laundry, or body care. 2. I tend to eat fairly well, but have become sensitive...
  7. Breastfeeding
    I just had to send my 7 month old to daycare with 1 bottle of formula because I have run through my freezer stash and can't pump enough to meet her demands. Trust me when I say I am pumping all that I can, cosleeping, taking lots of herbs. The one thing I haven't done is take Mothers Milk Tea...

    I just opened my Burt's Bees baby soap I got from Frontier. It looks like they've changed it since last time I bought it as it's opaque and the scent is SO very different. Maybe if we were going camping, as it has a cedar/bug spray smell, but there's no way I'm putting that on my infant. Does...
  10. Breastfeeding
    I am determined to breast feed, and I have heard that Lansinoh is something that helps relieve nipple soreness, prevents scabbing, soothes irritation from sensitive nipples rubbing on clothing... etc. However I am horribly allergic to it. I am allergic to wool and lanolin (which is the main...

    ive been looking for some time now to see where I can get the best deal on the EMAB products and today I just randomly happened to find it! www.mothernature.com - their prices on some of the products are literally half of what i have seen at whole foods, diapers.com, target.com and a bunch of...

    I've been drinking a RRL pregnancy blend tea I got from an herbal online store. It's loose leaf and I brew it at night and drink it cold the next day with a little agave nectar. I like it well enough but am looking for something new ... any recommendations? I liked the TM tea, but it's too...
  14. I'm Pregnant
    Hi all, I want to get my Canadian friend (who I hope isn't reading this but probably is some nice, crunchy pregnancy and birth products, like pregnancy tea, nursing tea, post-natal sitz bath herbs, nipple cream, labor massage oil, etc. but I can't find a good place who sells these online in...
  15. Breastfeeding
    I've been using a lot of lanolin to lubricate my nipples after bfeeding (Medela Tender Care). I've read that olive oil can also be used. Is there any benefit to Olive oil versus lanolin? The reason I ask is that even though lanolin is "safe" for baby, I wonder if its OK to ingest versus olive...
