Let’s face it…when we become mothers, our bodies never let us forget it. Even on the flattest of postpartum tummies, mommy skin is mommy skin. I gained the same amount of weight during both pregnancies, and I was fortunate to lose it pretty quickly both times. I’m guessing it’s a combination of breastfeeding and good genes. Have you seen my mom? Good grief.
However, my closet still holds plenty of clothes that don’t fit, my belly button is most likely out to stay, my linea nigra shows no signs of fading, and I’m fighting a new enemy – postpartum stretchmarks?! Sure enough, little pearlescent scratch marks showed up around my belly button about a week or so after the girls were born. Add all of that to my c-section incision, and I’ve got some interesting skin issues.
That’s why I jumped at the opportunity to work with Earth Mama Angel Baby. They offer products across a wide range of categories – pregnancy, postpartum, breastfeeding, new baby & family care. They even help mamas who have suffered loss of a baby, which I find especially touching.
Earth Mama Angel Baby sent me a jar of their C-Mama Healing Salve. It’s not just for c-section scars. It can be used to heal wounds, stretchmarks, old scars, and even rashes! The box in which it came was beautiful. Each cardboard flap contained encouragement – little sayings like, “Whether your c-section was a surprised or planned, you need some extra TLC. Remember to ask for all the help you need, you deserve it.” Inside the box, a leaflet explained each ingredient and the role it plays in the healing process. All of Earth Mama Angel Baby‘s products are 100% natural, vegan, & cruelty-free!
Earth Mama Angel Baby was kind enough to sponsor a giveaway on the blog. One of you is going to receive your very own jar of C-Mama Healing Salve. Remember, you don’t have to have undergone a c-section to enjoy it! Simply leave your name and email address below. I’ll draw a winner June 17. Be sure to check out Earth Mama Angel Baby on Facebook!
