Earth Mama Angel Baby Baby Loss Comfort Reviews

When a mother loses a baby, she is left not just with empty arms, but with a body that reminds her of that life and loss she has experienced. Since many friends and family members aren’t sure what to say or do, many do and say nothing at all. It wasn’t until I began researching in preparation for Babylost Mama Day that I realized there are products out there for these mothers, and after having experienced some of these products from Earth Mama Angel Baby first hand, I now know exactly what I can give to a grieving mother. These things won’t fill that hole in her heart, but they will help her body and spirit heal at the same time while acknowledging her loss and giving her permission to grieve.

Earth Mama Angel Baby (EMAB) is a beautiful company–they offer affordable, fully organic and natural bath and body products (with a few other things like candles, heat packs, and music) that are wonderfully packaged with sensitive photography and carefully selected language. Their product selection is broken down into every stage of a mother’s life–pregnancy, labor, post partum, breastfeeding, angel baby, and baby loss items. Not only has EMAB taken the time to create these things, though, but they also offer a host of information and support to mothers on their website. An extensive customizable birth plan template (which you may have seen me recently mention in this post), expert panel, FAQ, and a lot of resources for mothers who have experienced the loss of a baby are all available for free on their website.

This is a company that cares. I have been so impressed with my entire experience from them–the customer service is quick and thorough, the products are amazing, and they offer such a wealth of knowledge and resources! Any mother will be blessed by the EMAB products she receives, and especially the babylost mamas–the Baby Loss Comfort products from EMAB will truly make her feel recognized as a mother and give her the resources and permission she needs to heal both physically and in the heart.
 Seeds of Hope ($5.95) are easily sown, organic calendula seeds to plant, grow and nurture. The sensitive blessing on the back of the packet begins:
“I am planting these seeds in remembrance of you.
As I tuck them into the soil, I am planting my hope for the future
While I bury my dreams of holding you in my arms…”

I love the idea of having perenial flowers to sow in honor of a lost baby. It is a tangible way to say “I remember you” that will bring new life time and again. Many families aren’t able to bury their babies in the way that they’d like, and no one can visit their burial place as often as they’d like…the Seeds of Hope are a way to keep the memory of that little life with you at home (or wherever you choose to plant the flowers) and in a way that involves life. I haven’t been able to sow my seeds yet, but I’m planning on using them in a special place to honor my brother who was lost to a stillbirth and I can’t wait to have that special section of my flower garden dedicated to him each year.

 
Comfort Bath Blossoms ($8.95) is a sweet blend of comforting and calming organic herbs and organic oatmeal. Immerse yourself in an herb-infused tub and let them comfort your body and your spirit. Soak your body, warm your heart, blend your tears with the bath water and let them drain away.
These make for a truly soothing, moisturizing, and delicately scented bath. It reminds me of a floral, minty-type smell, but the herbs are actually heavy on lavender and calendula with lemon balm and rose petals included. Since the “portion sizes” for each bath are left for you to determine, you could get from 2 heavily infused baths to 10, I’m guessing, just depending on your preference. It’s easy to use the bath blossoms as a muslin bag is included in the jar for you to fill as you please and steep in the tub before you get in. I will certainly go so far to say that this product is awesome for any person and isn’t limited just to the babylost mamas.
 Soothing Harmony Tea ($5.97) honors women who have had the saddest loss, but who still have postpartum needs. Calming, astringent herbs have long been used to ease the body and mind when so many women need it most. USDA Certified 100% Organic & Certified Kosher, Harmony Tea is a delicious combination of herbs rich in nutrients, and was formulated especially for women’s needs both monthly and postpartum.

Harmony Tea synergistically blends astringent lady’s mantle and cinnamon with balancing lemon balm, mineral rich nettles and alfalfa, and rejuvenating, cramp easing ginger for a delicious, care-filled cup of tea.
All Earth Mama Angel Baby teas now come in easy to brew tea bags. The tea bags are biodegradable, the tea overwrap is compostable and the 100% recycled and recyclable cartons were produced using wind energy. Steep, sip and relax.

While I’m unable to currently “test” this tea since I’m pregnant, I can attest to the great packaging, enticing ingredients, and a delicious smell. In fact, this box of tea is already in my hospital bag for after I birth my baby. The thing I love the most about this tea is that while it does contain all sorts of awesome things for a post partum body, the packaging focuses on the mother and both her phsycial and heart’s healing instead of on what this tea is going to do for her after-birth body. Sometimes, a cup of warmth is a very appreciated thing when one has just gone through a traumatic event.

 Healing Heart Mist ($14.95) is a blend of pure essential oils traditionally used to ease sadness and soothe spirits. A comforting way to bring clarity and calm, spray it into the air, over your body and onto your linens to help your transition from grief to peace.
I LOVE the Healing Heart Mist! I’ve actually been using it about twice a day since receiving it in the mail and I’m not sure what I’m going to do when it’s all gone. 🙂 It is absolutely the best essential oil blend I have ever smelled and really is comforting and uplifting all at the same time! Made in a water and organic olive oil base, it sprays onto skin and in the air very smoothly without being oily or just washing off. The blend is primarily a variety of citricy essential oils (tangerine, lime, orange, and ylang-ylang) but also include ginger. It is not too strong or too light, and does relax and make you feel better. This gets my vote as a gift for anyone at any time, but especially for the newly babylost mama who needs an extra dose of encouragement. 🙂

While you can find Earth Mama Angel Baby products in many stores and online, I would recommend visiting and buying through http://earthmamaangelbaby.com/ so that you can also benefit from all of the extra things they have on their website…and they have weekly/monthly specials, too! A big thanks to EMAB for providing samples for this review. I’ll be working with them again in the coming months to share some more products with you so be sure to check back!
