Today, we are giving away FIVE mom-to-be skin care gift sets from the Lamaze body care line (a $24.75 value each!). The gift bundle includes all that a mom-to-be (and new mom) would need to soothe and pamper herself — Lamaze Belly Butter, Lamaze Belly Cream, Lamaze Moisturizing Body Cream, Lamaze Cooling Leg and Foot Cream, and Lamaze Anti-Oxidant Bath Powder. I know that when I was pregnant, I used anything and everything to keep my skin moisturized and itch-free! Here’s a little more info about the mom-to-be package:

Lamaze Belly Butter – exceptional for keeping the skin elastic and stretchy during pregnancy, as well as soothing itchy bellies. Key ingredients include organic and natural cocoa butter, and shea butter.

Lamaze Belly Cream – contains a variety of healing and emulsifying ingredients clinically proven to help minimize the appearance of stretch marks and scarring.

Lamaze Moisturizing Body Cream – a luscious alternative to regular lotion with a thick, creamy feel that leaves skin incredibly moist yet won’t leave the skin greasy

Lamaze Cooling Leg and Foot Cream – provides a revitalizing foot and leg massage, cooling and moisturizing with thick, penetrating cream.

Lamaze Sitz Bath Powder – this healing bath powder will foam to a wonderful lather while helping soothe and heal your body after pregnancy.

Week of Giveaways: Maternitique Gift Certificate

This giveaway is now closed.

Welcome to day three of the Giving Birth with Confidence Week of Giveaways! We have lots of fun and useful items to give away, so be sure to visit the site each day this week and enter to win. If you’re just joining us, visit Monday and Tuesday’s posts for another chance to win!

Today’s giveaway is a $25 gift certificate to Maternitique, an online boutique that features natural products for pregnancy, maternity and baby. As a mom who has recently taken a vested interest in choosing safer household and body care products, I am in love with this site’s philosophy toward natural and organic products in pregnancy.

Maternitique’s products reflect what mothers and midwives have always intuitively known, and what modern research is only beginning to prove: that the lifestyle choices we make before, during and after pregnancy—beauty and skin care, diet, exercise, stress management, pain and symptom relief—affect fetal health, childbirth outcomes and newborn development.

Owner Tara Bloom tells us why she founded Maternitique: “I loved being pregnant, giving birth, and becoming a mother, and I want to help other women enjoy the journey to motherhood as much as I have. Women deserve the best throughout pregnancy and they shouldn’t have to worry about what’s safe. That’s why I’ve hand-picked products that pamper moms while protecting babies.”

Maternitique has a site full of awesome products, but probably one of the most unique (that I’ve seen) is their “Lighten My Labor” line, which includes naturally based, non-toxic mists, lotions and gels to encourage calmness and trust throughout labor. The Lift Me Body Mist, developed by an OB/GYN nurse practitioner, is infused with light scents of neroli and lavender oils to refresh and cool during labor transition.

Weekly Reads: Pregnancy Gear

Body pillow, yoga-style pants, healthy pre-packaged snacks (plus the occasional box of donut holes) and naps were among my must-have items during both of my pregnancies. Since I’ve had my babies, I’ve come across some creative gear that I wish I would have known about. For example…

Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go RIGHT THIS MINUTE! There’s an app for that @ Cool Mom Picks

When you’re pregnant, needing a little “pick-me-up” generally refers to your sagging maternity pants. @ Cool Mom Picks

The Belly Bandit… more than meets the eye? Have heard pros and cons about this product and similar alternatives. What’s your take? @ MOMfinds 

A shower shield for tender and engorged breasts? Brilliant, I say! @ Upscale Baby Blog (don’t let the blog name fool you–they also review inexpensive alternatives)

 

What about your favorite and not-so-favorite maternity-must-haves? Be kind: post a comment and let other expecting moms in on your secrets!
