Folate Vs. Folic Acid Prenatal Vitamins: Which is Better?

Many mamas wonder about the importance of taking prenatal vitamins during pregnancy. For many mamas, daily supplements can have a big impact on how she feels and her nutritional intake.  

However, not all prenatal supplements are created equal. The type of B9 vitamin you take (folic acid vs folate), can have a big impact on both your and your baby’s health.

One of the best things you can do to ensure that your body stays strong and healthy is exercise during pregnancy. 

Light exercise while you are pregnant is generally safe for both mama and her baby, and has many benefits including managing your energy levels, stabilizing your mood, and reducing the risk of gestational diabetes and hypertension.

Pregnancy is a magical time in your life, but we know it can also be overwhelming. It's natural to worry about the health of you and your baby, and we want to help ease those concerns. 
While complications during pregnancy can occur, it's important to remember that they are not the norm. In fact, many moms have completely healthy pregnancies and births! However, we believe it's essential to be informed about potential complications, so you can be prepared and take necessary precautions.

During pregnancy, there is nothing more important than your baby’s health.  

Many mamas look for supplements, essential oils, and nutrients they can take to ensure a healthy pregnancy.  

A baby and mother

Doulas are an important part of any mama’s birth story.  

Your doula is there to be your advocate before, during, and after birth, to ensure that you are informed of your options and that your needs and preferences are met.  

Skin-to-skin contact between a baby and mother

The bond between mama and her baby is the strongest you will find anywhere on the planet. 

Many natural instincts work together to create an instant attachment between a mama and her newborn. One of the ways this bond is made is through skin-to-skin care immediately after birth.  

Which Essential Oils Should I Use During My Pregnancy?

Which essential oils are best to use when pregnant? Which essential oils should I stay away from while pregnant? 

These are common questions that many mothers have. Essential oils are a powerful resource that you can use to help alleviate pain and discomfort. There are many types of essential oils for pregnancy, but not every essential oil is the right fit.

Pregnancy can be challenging, no matter how much support you have.  

Morning sickness can be one of the most frustrating parts of the early months of pregnancy. Nobody wants to feel sick, but you may feel reluctant to reach for the medication (even over the counter) since you have a life growing inside you.  

The Heart-Healthy Benefits of Placenta Encapsulation

The placenta is one of the most fascinating organs of the human body.  

Its purpose is unique. Placentas only grow when a mama’s body is building a baby, and the placenta comes out along with the baby during birth.

If you have decided on a home birth, then a qualified and experienced support team is a must.  

In the United States, homebirths are becoming increasingly common, and they are now accepted by many as a safe and common alternative to hospital birth.
