We believe that it’s important to support birth professionals, advocate for evidence based care and give back to the community through organizations that champion quality maternal health care for all.
One of the not so fun "perks" of pregnancy is heartburn. Sometimes it can be due to certain foods you eat or baby's position but more often than not it's just one of those bodily changes that is remedied once baby is out of your belly and into your arms. This blend is our alternative to popping antacids all day. Drink before meals as a preventative, or after for some relief, pair with raw almonds as a snack for maximum cool down!
