What If You Could Say Goodbye To Morning Sickness?

Myrtle and Maude Mumma to be pack

When I was pregnant, the first 12 weeks were horrendous. I would have literally given anything not to have felt as ill as I did. Morning sickness was and still is one of the worst things I have ever experienced. That feeling of being completely debilitated, yet having to carry on as normal because the world doesn’t know your precious little secret yet. Throw a toddler and a full time job into the mix and it suddenly becomes very difficult to make it through each day.

The first time round I had the luxury of being able to take some time off work and lay on the sofa for a week or two just going through the motions of morning sickness. Second time round it was all very different. I had to push through the exhaustion and the feeling of wanting to keel over for the best part of each day. The commute in and out of London was horrendous, every little whiff of other people on the tube used to make me want to throw up, and the smell of colleagues food at lunch time was often too much to bear. For 12 maybe even 14 whole weeks I struggled just to make it through each day, often collapsing into a heap and crawling into bed almost from the moment I got home.

No consumption of ginger biscuits would cure me from my horrid queasiness. It was hands down one of the worst things I have ever experienced and I would have literally given anything to get rid of it. But morning sickness has been and is just one of those things that you seem to have to suffer with, or perhaps that doesn’t have to be the case anymore..

Myrtle and Maude, a company founded by a husband and wife team have spent the last 12 months working with elite herbalists to lovingly craft a collection of tummy settling products to alleviate morning sickness. Inspired by nature and a love for natural products they have created a beautiful range that looks a lot more promising than a packet of ginger biscuits. Their Mumma to be peppermint oil bon bons smell delightful and the baby bump settling peppermint, ginger, lemon, chamomile, rose petal and orange peel herbal tea infusions look as pretty as they sound and are so much more inviting than plain old peppermint tea. These two, along with an acupressure wristband make up a beautifully packaged Mumma To Be range that I wish I could have tried for myself all those months ago when I was in the throes of morning sickness.

So in collaboration with Myrtle and Maude I have one beautiful Mumma To Be Pack to give away in the hope that it will help someone else that is suffering from the awfulness that is morning sickness. All you have to do to win is enter the Gleam competition below! I also have a 10% off promotional code (LFPP500) for those of you that cant wait that long and would like to buy a pack for yourself and if you’d like to be a part of the Myrtle and Maude story you can join their exciting crowdfunding campaign!

    Oh boy I remember Morning Sickness – it was horrid. I suffered for the entire 12 weeks both times and I totally understand where you’re coming from. It’s awful. How cool that there may be a cure. I won’t enter (not pregnant and don’t intend to be!) the competition but will share. xx

    Both of mine I had awful morning sickness, until week 14, then i got up one day and it had passed. Weirdly the only thing that would make me feel better was eating. Like proper massive meals. I gained so much weight in those first few weeks!

    These sound great – I think when you’re struggling with morning sickness you’ll try anything! I suffered awfully the first time around, and it continued pretty much the whole way through the pregnancy, although I’m really grateful that it did ease off towards the end. I know that mint and lemon did make me feel a bit less queasy when I wasn’t being sick, so this sounds worth a go! #Family Fun

    Morning sickness is a pain in the backside. If you can even call it that. I just call it pregnancy nausea. Strikes at any moment. Currently 16 weeks pregnant and still getting days where I just need to curl up in bed, but like you said baby #2 is a whole other cattle of fish. Gone are the days of slobbing on the sofa when you have a toddler running around. Sounds like a really interesting product and company! Definitely going over to have a nosey 🙂 #familyfun #bestandworst

    Ooooh yes morning sickness is a killer. Ploughing through when you already have a small one in tow is no fun at all. I drank all the ginger tea and ate all the ginger biscuits yet it still persisted. I too would have loved to try these and boy are they on to a winner if they can rid you of that awful sickness. Thanks for sharing at #familyfun xx

    Unfortunately the only thing that worked for my morning sickness was given birth! I was sick day and night for the whole nine months.
