Here’s some topics that aren’t freely shared or asked of a pregnant mama:
“How are you feeling … ‘down-there’?”
“How’re those hemorrhoids treating you?”
“Were you able to find a little relief for those varicose veins in your vulva?”
Guess what: at Earth Mama, there is no such thing as TMI. You should never be ashamed to ask,
“What can I do to try and find some relief?”
We’ve probably heard of it, experienced it or will do our best to help you receive some comfort for it.
Soooo, let’s chat swelling, hemorrhoids and varicose veins — and the herbs we use to help treat them!
One of the delights of the third trimester is increased blood flow to the pelvic region that, because a baby is sitting on it and applying pressure, can’t flow out as easily. It gets kinda stuck. This can lead to swelling in the vaginal area. (But remember: if the area is painful, itchy or inflamed, seek medical attention.)
Earth Mama’s line of “Down-There Care” herbal products, specifically developed to care for a pregnant or postpartum woman’s vaginal and perineal region, will support you from the beginning of your pregnancy through … well, whenever you need it. Here’s the thing about Earth Mama’s products: they’re actually infused with organic herbs. It’s the way herbalists have been doing it for centuries, and that traditional process results in a more powerful concentration of herbs — so they can really do their job.
Before we move on, let’s help to clarify: the perineum is the area of skin between the anus and vulva. It’s easily mis-pronounced, so here’s a little trick, it sounds like “pear-eh-KNEE-um”. Perineal is pronounced, “pear-eh-KNEE-ul”. Hope that helps. Here we go!
