My Expert Midwife develops trio of sprays to fight nausea, sleeplessness and replenish energy during pregnancy

My Expert Midwife – the company specialising in products and honest advice for women before, during and after labour and babies – knows only too well that alongside the thrills and joys of being pregnant, come the stresses, strains and pains. Let’s be honest, pregnancy can be tough, with many unexpected and unpleasant side effects to deal with. To help mums and mums to be, My Expert Midwife has launched a new range of products to take women through all three trimesters of pregnancy with a range based on the proven properties of essential oils.

Founder and expert midwife, Lesley Gilchrist and pre and postnatal massage specialist Claire Charlton, have combined their knowledge along with a team of specialists including: chemists, aromatherapists and midwives – not to mention experiences as parents themselves – to come up with a practical and effective range to help pregnant women cope with common pregnancy related side effects, such as: nausea sleeplessness and lack of energy.

The new range is available in discreet and easy to transport 50ml spray bottles. The sprays can be bought individually or as a trio gift set, all three are safe to spray on your skin and clothes during all three trimesters.

We realised that whilst similar products exist – as sleeping aids and anti-nausea aids – it is not always clear that they are suitable for pregnant women. In fact, this is the first time a range of products has been made available for women to help to manage their symptoms throughout pregnancy. Our unique trio of products will provide a practical and effective solution to those difficult pregnancy symptoms, using premium ingredients to ensure our products are safe for all,” explains Lesley.

Relieve the Heave – spray for nausea

Used for: Morning sickness, afternoon sickness or just plain “don’t know when it’s going to hit you” sickness. The early days of pregnancy can be very testing, but this discreet spray bottle can be carried in most handbags or pockets, providing you with timely relief without letting the whole world know your secret. Symptoms of sickness and nausea during pregnancy are most common in the first trimester and usually subside by 14-16 weeks, but can continue for the whole pregnancy.

Properties of the essential oils in Relieve the Heave:

Lemon: Lemon oil was chosen for its ability to tackle mental fatigue and stress, as well as helping to calm upset stomachs.

Grapefruit: Grapefruit oil supports the endocrine system which is responsible for helping to regulate the secretion of enzymes and hormones, as well as promoting the production of bile and regulating the digestive system. It is also known for its effect on being able to uplift mood and reduce anxiety.

Peppermint: Peppermint oil is well known for helping to reduce feelings of nausea and to help calm tummy upsets. It also helps to increase energy levels which can help you to regain focus and concentration.

Feel the Zing – spray for energy

Used for: When feeling tired or in need of an energy boost – this easily transportable spray has been created for exactly these moments. The spray helps to combat the feelings of lethargy and tiredness, particularly in the first 12 weeks and the last trimester.

Properties of the essential oils in Feel the Zing

Neroli: Neroli helps to reduce stress and cortisol levels in the body. It can also reduce inflammation and help with headaches.

Grapefruit: Grapefruit oil supports the endocrine system which is responsible for helping to regulate the secretion of enzymes and hormones, as well as promoting the production of bile and regulating the digestive system. It is also known for its effect on being able to uplift mood and reduce anxiety.

Press for Zzz’s – spray for sleep

Used for: Helps to calm, soothe and relax. This spray aims to help you drift off to sleep more easily and keep you asleep for longer to break the habit of too much night waking, so you can face a new day feeling more refreshed. It can be used throughout the whole pregnancy and will be especially useful in that difficult third trimester which is often a time of tiredness but frustratingly a time where sleeping is increasingly difficult.

Properties of the essential oils in Press for Zzz’s

Orange: Orange oil is known for its relaxing and sedative properties, as well as being an anti-inflammatory.

Geranium: Geranium was used by the ancient Egyptians as a stress buster. It is also known to relieve anxiety by encouraging the regulation and balance of hormones within the body.

Frankincense: The calming, grounding smell of frankincense helps to quickly alleviate tensions and anxieties in the build-up to the birth of the baby. It can not only induce a more restful night’s sleep but can also help during labour to help you focus the mind during the ‘transition’ phase of labour.
