MHB: Share with us the mission of Earth Mama Angel Baby. I know many of see you online and in our local co-ops, so what are you really up to in the world?
EMAB: Earth Mama formulates safe, hospital recommended, organic and natural herbal products and USDA Certified 100% Organic teas that are specifically created to support the entire journey of childbirth, from Pregnancy through Postpartum Recovery, Breastfeeding, and Baby care.
Earth Mama products help ease Pregnancy nausea, hemorrhoids, swollen feet and stretch marks, Postpartum perineal bruising, episiotomy and Cesarean section, Breastfeeding’s engorgement, mastitis, sore, cracked nipples and milk supply, and Baby’s diaper rash and dry skin. Earth Mama uses only the highest quality ingredients and no toxins ever!
MHB: I have personally used and loved some of your products-I have to share it here. The Mama Bottom Balm was sooo soothing after pushing out an 8.8# baby in ten minutes. No tearing for me, but I didn’t get away without hemorrhoids. The Mama Bottom Balm felt so fantastic, but I see you have a Mama Bottom Spray now, which makes that healing even easier. I find the Postpartum Bath Herbs super easy to use with mama’s postpartum. These definitely make being a new mama easier! The smell of Angel Baby Wash, Lotion and Oil makes my womb ache for another wee one and their clean sweet smell. Mmm.
MHB: I could gush all day, but we must move on! What inspires you to do this work?
EMAB: Every single product I formulated was created to help support friends and family for one problem or another. I realized there were no safe, organic products available that combined traditional plant medicine with evidence-based research. At Earth Mama we study the safest herbs, pore over evidence-based research, and formulate the safest products possible, the safest products a company can make in this industry, and products that are as close to the earth as can be.
MHB: As a parent, what kind of rhythm gives you harmony as you accomplish tasks for both work and family?
EMAB: I started my company after my babies were grown, but making time for myself is still difficult. I get up preposterously early and I run, usually when it’s still dark. I’m able to get centered and balanced before I start my day. My husband works at Earth Mama, so we make sure to connect, and I “see” my babies during the day via text, Facetime & email.
MHB: Who are your perfect customers/clients?
EMAB: Mamas who want the safest products for their babies. We love people with lots of questions, because we have them too. What makes a product truly organic? Why do some companies use questionable ingredients but still use the word organic? What’s all that information on the label, and is it important? We think it is, and we think mamas have a right to know what they are putting on their babies. We don’t think that’s too much to ask, so we are happy to tell them!
MHB: Where can the families I work with find more information about you?
EMAB: The best resource is our web site. Besides product information and reviews, there is a helpful, free Birth Plan, articles about product safety and herbal information. And there is a whole community of like-minded mama’s on the Earth Mama Facebook page.
