The Best Organic Beauty Products For Pregnant & Nursing Mothers

Never have I put more time, care and attention into the products I was slathering onto my body daily than when I was pregnant. The idea that my body was no longer my own — that it was growing this tiny seed of life that relied on me to grow — was enough to make me ditch my toxic beauty drawer in search of more natural alternatives. And even though I’m no longer pregnant, the idea of returning to my former ways after relying on such healthful products makes me cringe. Naturally (ha! pun!), I’ve gathered up 32 of my favorite finds to keep you fresh, pampered and — most importantly – safe. Happy pampering, Mamas!
