Pretty Pushers 100% Cotton Disposable Labor & Delivery Gown (Plus size 18-26 Pre-Pregnancy, Hot Pink)
The Pretty Pushers gown is an easy, inexpensive alternative to the standard hospital gown. And the best aspects of these delivery gowns are the openings in all the right places. Many modern labors involve epidurals, monitors, and other IV cords. Women are left disappointed by the traditional labor gowns which allow for none of the above! The Pretty Pushers gown was designed with a halter neck and low-cut back for epidural access. Additionally, there is an opening (with tie closure) at the front of the gown for both the fetal monitor and the mother’s monitor, if needed. Pretty Pushers utilizes as much recycled and recyclable material as possible in their packaging and shipping components. Of course as the company grows, so will their use of modern technology and ideas to lessen even more their impact on the environment. This company holds a strong social commitment, too…All products are 100% Made in America.

PMS tea

PMS tea
I knew it must be that time of the month because I tried to make mayonnaise and it wouldn’t thicken right! Grrrr. Then I thought that my husband looked at me funny. “Are you mad at me?” I asked with a growl in my voice. My frustration level was at red alert high, people were pissing me off by getting in my way. It must be PMS!

Wild yam
Raspberry leaves (very important)
Dong quai
Black cohosh root
Dandelion root
Chaste berry (Vitex)
Blue vervaine
Blessed thistle
Nettles (very important!)
Angelica root
Lemon balm (a lot of this one, its my base with the stinging nettles)

Where is my baggie of PMS tea that I whipped up awhile ago? I cursed as I dug frantically through the kitchen drawers. Gah, ah, there it is! All the ingredients have theirs medicinal uses but you don’t have to have them all to make PMS tea. The ones indicated are the most important. I just happen to have an entire apothecary’s cabinet at my house. I am a herb whore. With in a half an hour after drinking a tea made with a tablespoon of the mix, I was calm, singing, and creative (making this scrumptious lunch–see next photo) my husband said “its not even my birthday and you made this fancy meal!” In about 6 hours it wore off. I had to make another cup! Mix it with some honey, because it’s medicinal not for savoring its fine flavors. Bleck. Here is the low down on a couple of key ingredients.

Wild Yam– Used for centuries as a medicinal herb by the Aztec and Myan peoples for a wide range of ailments including many female problems and to relieve the pain of child birth.

Red raspberry leaves are known to regulate the menstrual cycle and relieve PMS. Ancient Greeks and Romans used red raspberry leaves to treat included the flu, gum disease, rubella, upset stomach, hangovers, diarrhea, fevers, vomiting, menstrual problems, and inflammation.

Dong Quai, also know as Angelica, is used primarily to treat menstrual complaints, such as menstrual pain, cramps, PMS and irregular cycles.

Black Cohosh also called Squaw Vine because Native Americans discovered that it could be used as a healing herb for maladies such as malaria, rheumatism, sore throats, colds, constipation, hives, backaches, and to induce lactation, it can also bring on menstruation it was even though it prevents miscarriage and minimizes labor pains. Best of all, reduces the unpleasant symptoms of PMS and menopause such as depression and minor aches and pains.

Chaste berry is generally used for treating disorders and conditions of the female reproductive system, like for pre-menstrual syndrome and for hysteria, menopause and different hormonal imbalances.

Lemon balm, called Melisse and it what they mix into moroccian mint tea often. It is from the mint family as well. It relaxes the nervous system producing sleep. It is used for epilepsy, nerve disorders, insomnia, fainting, hysteria, migraine headaches, hypochondria and vertigo. lemon balm helps strengthen the mind and nervous system. It acts as a tonic to the heart and digestive system and as an antispasmodic. It helps support the female reproductive system and can ease tension and cramping during the menstrual cycle. It helps with emotional upset and is an antidepressant. It also helps to clear mental obstruction and nourish heart yin. It’s a wonderful thing to drink by itself.

Nettles are a tonic of the female system that goes back to the Native American women who used it throughout pregnancy and as a remedy to stop hemorrhaging during childbirth. It is considered one of the best all round women’s tonics. As you know a favorite of mine for so many other reasons. (I made fried nettles for lunch today too!)

Just in case— As with all herbals, make certain you are not allergic and that it is safe for you to consume them. Before taking anything, you should consult your doctor.
