It’s important to us that myStonyfield Rewards partners help us share good, healthy, organic products with you, even after your yogurt. An organic lifestyle is a holistic approach to health, wellness and caring for our environment, so that means babies and mamas too — or maybe most of all! So, continuing on introeducing some of our great myStonyfield Rewards partners, we thought we’d ask Mama in Charge, Melinda Olson a little about Earth Mama Baby Angel.
Meet Melinda Olson and check out the Angel Baby Bottom Balm available threw our rewards!
How did your company get started?
Mama didn’t originally intend to start an organic herbal manufacturing company. Every single product she formulated was created to help support friends and family for one problem or another. So it was created over time. After her own personal experiences during pregnancy and breastfeeding, she realized there were no safe, organic products available to women that combined traditional plant medicine with evidence-based research.
As a nurse, BSN she’s always believed that pregnancy is a natural, normal state of wellness, not an illness. She also believes that the common discomforts associated with childbirth and postpartum recovery have been supported by women using plant medicine, very safely, for a very, very long time. Morning sickness, heartburn, hemorrhoids, cracked nipples, etc. can all be safely supported using the plants from nature’s pharmacy.
What is your company’s mission/philosophy?
Mama created the only complete line of zero toxin, hospital recommended organic and natural herbal products and USDA Certified 100% Organic teas specifically formulated to support women throughout the common discomforts of childbirth, from pregnancy through labor, postpartum recovery, breastfeeding, baby and family care. All of Earth Mama Angel Baby products are made with only pure, natural worry-free ingredients. And every Earth Mama Angel Baby product rates a zero for toxins on the respected Skin Deep database; the best rating a product can receive.
Every Earth Mama Angel Baby product is backed by Mama’s Promise. Mama’s promise is to offer only safe, pure, natural products that work. If it doesn’t measure up to Mama’s standards, it doesn’t leave the building. Promise.
Why are you excited about being a partner in the rewards program?
Stonyfield and Earth Mama have a lot in common. We support local business, we use organic ingredients, we care about the earth, and all the people on it. It’s a natural fit, and we think mamas who love Stonyfield for your healthful alternatives to highly processed, artificially flavored yogurt will find Earth Mama a safe alternative to personal care products that contain worrisome ingredients.
Tell us about 1 thing your company is working on right now that you are really excited about.
We are working with many hospitals, midwives, pediatricians and lactation consultants to provide safer alternatives to the products they routinely offer to pregnant and breastfeeding mamas and
newborn babies. If we can get each baby’s first bath to be a safe, toxin-free bath, we’ll feel like we’ve done our part!
What is your favorite flavor of Stonyfield yogurt (or product)?
The kids love the YoKids Squeezers! You see Stonyfield all over Earth Mama HQ at lunchtime, and one mama ate Chocolate Whole Milk every day while she was breastfeeding!
