Pit Stop: Jason-Organic Apricot Deodorant

Greenista Girl Shivani

Hey preggo mama. Does the thought of chem-laden deodorant make you break out in a sweat? Calm down and stay cool with Jason-Organic Apricot Deodorant. Did you know that a pregnant woman’s core body temp rises and blood pressure rises too during those 9 months? Luckily, this sweat buster is made minus aluminum chlorohydrate … a neurotoxin that alters the function of the blood-brain barrier and is linked to Alzheimer’s disease and cancer. There is also apricot oil (for a yummy scent), vitamin E and shea butter (to moisturize), and certified organic corn starch (to keep you dry). It’s gentle, safe, and delivers long-lasting protection … for real. Best of all, Jason’s delivers all the protection minus those messy white marks that traditional deodorant sticks leave behind. It’s great for post- and pre-pregnancy and for non-mamas too.

Many traditional deodorants contain aluminum chlorohydrate , which can be absorbed through two major lymph glands near your arm pits -- a critical part of the body’s immune system.

    Great blog! I definitely love how it is easy on my eyes as well as the details are well written. I am wondering how I might be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your rss feed which must do the trick! Have a nice day!

Light exercise during the day also can help soon-to-be-moms get some needed shut eye when its time for lights out.

Sleep isn’t always the easiest thing to do for expectant moms but one to two catnaps during the day can actually improve your nighttime sleep during pregnancy.

Like Butta: Organic Belly Butter

Greenista Girl Shivani

There are so many products out there for rubbing on your belly during pregnancy: belly butter, belly oil, belly bars.  A few great lines exist that are truly organic, truly natural, and beautifully made. One of Greenista’s favorite is Mambino Organics – it uses organically grown and wild harvested botanicals from around the world, 100% natural, no phthalates, parabens, or additives … just real ingredients, real results. Greenista Girl Shivani says, the Oh Baby! Belly Butter ($20/2 oz) is fantastic – with mango, shea butter and Madagascar tamanu oil. She loves the great yummy smelling combination.  Rub it into your bust, butt, hips, and thighs to avoid stretch marks and itchy, growing skin. It’s one of the more emollient, hydrating ones on the market so your belly is hydrated all day long.

Parabens can cause breast cancer Yes, this is true. Many biopsy studies have concluded that the tumors that were analyzed had high levels of Parabens present in them. Plus, they interfere with the estrogen activity in the body. In many infertility cases, the scientists found a direct connection between the estrogen levels and Parabens.

Workforce: DIY Exercise Routine

Greenista Girl Shivani

How about a little manual labor before you go into labor? Don’t worry, we’re just talking about an easy, light workout routine. First and foremost, preggo ladies should not raise their heart rate above 140, so we suggest you get a heart rate monitor.  Try a combination of yoga moves to keep yourself stretched out and light cardio like walking 30 minutes a day – take it outside to boost your mood. Don’t push yourself too hard, take breaks if you need to and stay super hydrated – even if that means potty breaks every 10 minutes. By working out throughout your pregnancy, you’ll bounce back into shape faster post-baby, have an easier time with labor, and reduce your need for pain meds. Now get back to working it.

Greenista Cocktail Factoid: Epidurals are deemed safe for mom and baby by the FDA, however there are increased risks that may develop. Working out, practicing breathing, and being mentally prepared will lower your need for medications during labor. Going au natural is better for you and baby.
