    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...
  3. 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...

    I was looking at the bottom balm and bottom spray for hem's and perineal issues (hoping I don't tear this time, but still) and then there's the herbs.... I'd like to get one of those. But then I saw that there's a gift pack that has bottom balm and new mama spray and tea and stuff, and thought...

  6. 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...

    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...
  11. 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...
  12. Vegetarian and Vegan
    I know this forum tends to be food-centric.... but I could use some suggestions on some good non-food vegan products. All of the salves I've found to heal cracked nipples or babies rashy butts have had beeswax or lanolin in them, which I do not use. Anyone know of good vegan-friendly...

    I have a horrible hemorrhoid, and nothing is helping. I'm doing Sitz bath several times a day, witch hazel, those medicated pads for wiping, the ointment. It's not going away. It hurts so bad.
