Give-Away #10: Belly to Baby

I met up with Chelsea from "Belly to Baby" on Etsy and was immediatley intrigued by her product line, which features natural "healing solutions" for your pregnancy, labor, postpartum and baby needs.

I received the Pregnancy Bliss Bath (Salts) & Cheeky Baby Bum Balm recently and am very much looking forward to using them. Now, while I haven't actually used the Cheeky Baby Bum Balm yet, as my son hasn't had any diaper rashes lately, I can't really comment on its use for that purpose. But what I can tell you is that is smells of heavenly lavender and, having rubbed some onto my palm, absorbs quickly onto the skin leaving no sticky or greasy residue. Did I mention it's all natural? That means no strange ingredients or harmful chemicals up nice and close to your baby.

As for the Bliss Bath, as I am currently in my first trimester of pregnancy, I'm also *not allowed* to use it, so haven't been able to test out a bath yet. But again, it smells fantastic (also like lavender, as it has lavender flowers in it) and is quite beautiful actually. It comes in a glass jar, so you can see all the sea salt and lavender flowers...a really nice touch and fantastic presentation. Add to that one of their client's comments that yeast infections have been cleared up after using the Bliss Bath salts, and I think you have yourself a winner!

On the note of the packaging for the Bliss Bath salts I referred to earlier, that's another quality I really love about Belly to Baby ~ their natural packaging "so as to eliminate the risk of harmful chemicals leaching into products" not to mention it's all recyclable.

Here is a bit more about Belly to Baby...

How did your business start and when?

My business partner, Emily, and I met when she became pregnant and hired me as her doula in 2006. Our mutual interest in aromatherapy, natural living and birth inspired the idea to created products especially for the childbearing year. We began our business in the fall of 2007.

How did you come up with your business name?
Emily and I are both doulas and wanted a name that would work with both businesses. We wanted something that fit our philosophy that pregnancy and birth are natural occurrences in a women’s life.

How long have you been making your creations?
We both have been experimenting with aromatherapy for many years and started creating pregnancy specific products in 2006.

What medium/s do you use to create your products?
100% natural and vegetable based ingredients.

Are your products located in any brick-and-mortar stores? If so, where?
We have 20 retail locations across Canada, mostly maternity and baby stores.

What sets your business/products apart from others that create similar items?
All of our products use 100% pure essential oils known to be safe during pregnancy and for babies in a concentration appropriate for this sensitive time. Our products contain no preservatives, synthetics or chemicals. We use no animal products making our products VEGAN! We also do not package our products in any plastic containers.

Belly to Baby has graciously offered one lucky Haute Tot reader their Pregnancy Bliss Salts & Cheeky Baby Bum Balm!

Such a beautiful shop! I would love to win these goodies for my niece and her newborn son.

The Happy Baby Gift Basket is a lovely set - the room fragrance sounds lovely, and the balm would be perfect.
