When I was pregnant with my children, the level of morning sickness and other pregnancy side effects varied dramatically. With my first (a boy), I was sick from approx. 8 weeks -16 weeks and off and on all day. I put a lot of this sickness down to being a chef and having to smell raw chicken/steak, seafood, etc. all day everyday. Now I think it may have just been because he was a boy. My second pregnancy, I was also carrying a boy and suffered morning sickness off and on from 8 weeks – 30 weeks all day. It was horrible and nothing I did helped. I hadn’t heard of Pregnancy Cookies back then (or while pregnant with any of my children to be honest) and they may not have even existed at that point in time but I have heard great things and wish that they were an option while pregnant with my boys. They could have been a game changer.
My third pregnancy was a whole lot different and I think it may have been due to the fact I was pregnant with my daughter. I was barely sick at all. I mean it was from 4 weeks – 12 weeks but it was once first thing in the morning and that was it. I couldn’t believe my luck with how little morning sickness I suffered and I was so thankful. Don’t get me wrong, I had my fair share of other pregnancy side effect; painful varicose veins, cramping muscles and the list goes on but the lack of morning sickness was wonderful.
I was recently contacted by Yummy Mummy Food in regards to reviewing Totally Devoted Pregnancy Cookies and while I was going to initially turn down the opportunity I thought back to my own pregnancies and felt I owed it to pregnant mums out there to share the product and its review. I had a friend who was suffering severe morning sickness that began the second she sat up in bed in the morning until well after lunch. I passed these onto her with all the hope that they would help. Would you believe these pregnancy cookies worked?! Sally says “I would enjoy a cookie with my cup of tea first thing in the morning and it significantly reduced my nausea. These have been a lifesaver for me this pregnancy!”
The Totally Devoted pregnancy cookies are loaded with benefits and flavour for mums experiencing morning sickness and nausea. Ginger is one of the ingredients they have added to the pregnancy cookies because of its proven role in reducing nausea, heartburn and migraines. Along with chia seeds as they are known for being high in Omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, calcium, magnesium, iron, niacin and zinc.
I tried one of the cookies just so that I could comment on flavour and they remind me of a Christmas cookie, maybe because of the cinnamon but regardless they are quite tasty. They make a great accompaniment to a cup of tea and they are affordable at $14.55 for a box. Yummy Mummy Food also stocks Breastfeeding Cookies designed to increase your milk supply naturally.
Each prize includes: 1x Box of Pregnancy Cookies. (RRP $14.55). Total Prize Pool $43.65.
