One tablet promises to provide 100 percent of the Daily Value of the vitamins and minerals which are needed for ensuring pregnancy wellness. This includes iron, vitamin C, and folic acid.
No artificial dyes or colors, flavors, or preservatives. Tablets are small and easy-to-swallow, ideal even for those who have a sensitive stomach. This one bottle is a 2 month supply so it’s a great item for a bimonthly box.
Yorba Organics Stretch Mark Cream ($14.47) This was formulated with natural Kigelia Extract which helps in minimizing and reducing stretch marks, fine lines, and even scars.
Good to know that the cream is non-toxic, all-natural, and vegan. Smells great and non-greasy too. Worth trying whether you’re a first time mom or not.
Three Lollies Preggie Natural Chews ($8.40) For morning sickness relief!
Ingredients include Brown Rice Syrup, Cane Syrup, Palm Oil, Organic Corn Starch, Sunflower Lecithin, Natural Flavors, Vitamin B6, Beetroot Juice, Caramel Color, and Cayenne Pepper. (But they’re not spicy!).
It’s all-natural and chemical-free so it’s safe for both mom and baby. Flavors include sour raspberry, ginger, and apple. They taste very much like all natural starburst candy except they also have 10mg of B6 to reduce nausea.
What To Expect When You’re Expecting by Heidi Murkoff & Sharon Mazel ($10.04) A great read for first time parents, but also contains useful information for every expecting parent.
With 18.5 million copies in print, What to Expect When You’re Expecting is read by 93% of women who read a pregnancy book and was named one of the “Most Influential Books of the Last 25 Years” by USA Today.
This cover-to-cover (including the cover!) new edition is filled with must-have information, advice, insight, and tips for a new generation of moms and dads. With What to Expect’s trademark warmth, empathy, and humor, it answers every conceivable question expecting parents could have, including dozens of new ones based on the ever-changing pregnancy and birthing practices and choices they face. Advice for dads is fully integrated throughout the book. All medical coverage is completely updated, including the latest on Zika virus, prenatal screening, and the safety of medications during pregnancy, as well as a brand-new section on postpartum birth control. Current lifestyle trends are incorporated, too: juice bars, raw diets, e-cigarettes, push presents, baby bump posting, the lowdown on omega-3 fatty acids, grass-fed and organic, health food fads, and GMOs. Plus expanded coverage of IVF pregnancy, multiple pregnancies, breastfeeding while pregnant, water and home births, and cesarean trends (including VBACs and “gentle cesareans”).
The book walks readers through different stages of pregnancy.
It is well-written and easy to understand, complete with checklists and useful trivia.
The Belly Book: A Nine-Month Journal for You and Your Growing Belly By Amy Krouse Rosenthal ($9.60) This pregnancy journal is so cute!
Before you get to meet your baby, you spend a swell (so to speak) nine months getting acquainted with your growing belly. The first pregnancy journal devoted 100% to you and your belly, The Belly Book is organized by trimester and includes pages for “time-lapse” belly photos and ultrasound images, as well as prompts for writing about morning sickness, food cravings, maternity clothes you never want to see again, and much more.
Gotta love how organized this journal is. It is divided into three trimesters, and even includes pages for photos.
There are also prompts for writing about different things a mom experiences during pregnancy. It’s so fun and you don’t really have to fill an entire page, a few lines will do. This is a fun way to memorialize your pregnancy and
The value of this month’s box is $62. It includes a nice combination of snacks, supplements, and other pregnancy companions for the first trimester. This subscription is great because you have the option to get a box tailored to your specific pregnancy stage. It’s better than getting a general box that contains items you might already have or items that you won’t find useful anymore. Plus, the bulk of the value was concentrated on full-size pregnancy specific items that any expecting mom can use.
