GOODBYE TO MORNING SICKNESS AS NEW SEA-BAND MAMA! RANGE COMBATS PREGNANCY NAUSEA THE NATURAL WAY
With many women living life on-the-go, the added discomfort of morning sickness can be an unwelcome side-effect of pregnancy, particularly in the first trimester. The new Sea-Band Mama! range has been carefully designed to combat nausea and vomiting the natural way, using a variety of techniques, all of which are straightforward, discreet and drug-free.
As with the original Sea-Band wrist bands, NEW Sea-Band Mama! wristbands use acupressure to alleviate the symptoms of morning sickness. A small plastic stud stimulates the Pericardium 6 (or Nei-Kuan), a pressure point located between the two central tendons of the inner wrist. The bands can be used both to treat and to prevent nausea, and relief typically occurs within five minutes of application.
‘KEEPING MUM’ – A THIRD OF WOMEN FEEL THE BEST WAY TO CONCEAL THEIR PREGNANCY IS TO COMBAT NAUSEA
Pregnancy can have a huge impact on a woman’s life, from coping with physical body changes to worrying about the health of their unborn child. New research found that over half of pregnant women have tried to keep their pregnancy a secret at some point, so with an average of 909,245 pregnancies a year1 in England and Wales alone, women sometimes need to be creative when coming up with ways of guarding their secret.
Why so shy?
Women have many different reasons for ‘keeping mum’, with a fifth of women in a new survey by Sea-Band Mama! worried about the health of their baby and 1 in 10 wanting to surprise people. More than 1 in 10 women questioned wanted to conceal their pregnancy from their employer as they were worried about their reaction, with 1 in 4 pregnant women feeling their employer sees them as a drain on resources. Research showed that almost half of women suffer from pregnancy nausea, making it difficult to keep the secret.
A third of women feel that the best way to conceal their pregnancy is to combat nausea. Popular excuses for pregnancy sickness include a “hangover”, with over a quarter of women using this as an excuse when being confronted about their nausea. The most common ‘cover up’ used by over half of pregnant women (52%) is a ‘stomach bug’.
With this in mind, Sea-Band Mama! has developed a range of products to combat nausea and vomiting the natural way, using a variety of techniques, all of which are straightforward, discreet and drug-free. By reducing pregnancy nausea, mums-to-be can relax and will no longer have to worry about being challenged about the real reason behind their sickness, before they are ready to share their news.
As with the original Sea-Band wrist bands, NEW Sea-Band Mama! wristbands use acupressure to alleviate the symptoms of morning sickness. A small plastic stud stimulates the Pericardium 6 (or Nei-Kuan), a pressure point located between the two central tendons of the inner wrist. The bands can be used both to treat and to prevent nausea, and relief typically occurs within five minutes of application. With over a third of women hiding their pregnancy at some point, the new Sea-Band Mama! wrist bands are discreet and machine-washable, so they can be used every day.
Available from www.seabandmama.com, Lloyd’s Pharmacy and independent health food stores and pharmacies, the new Sea-Band Mama! one size fits all wristbands are available in lilac and are priced at £8.15 a pair.
The Sea-Band Mama! Aromatherapy Rollette uses a combination of ginger (Zingiber Officinale), lime (Citrus Aurantifolia) and spearmint (Mentha Vridis) essential oils to invigorate your sense of smell, triggering a reaction in the brain which blocks feelings of pain and nausea2. The oils can be inhaled or absorbed through the skin, and are most effective when applied to the temples, wrists and chest. This natural remedy is ideal for your handbag so you can relieve sickness symptoms when you are on-the-go or at work.
The Sea-Band Mama! Aromatherapy Rollette is priced at £4.99 for 10ml.
Ginger oil is also a key component of Sea-Band Ginger Lozenges, as studies have shown that ginger significantly reduces abnormal gastric activity when ingested3. As folic acid helps to prevent defects such as spina bifida to the central nervous system of unborn children4, Sea-Band Mama! has added 40mcg folic acid to each lozenge, so now expectant mums can relieve pregnancy nausea whilst also helping the growth of their baby.
By taking just 10 lozenges throughout the day, you can gain the Department of Health’s recommended daily allowance of 0.4mg (400 microgram) for pregnant women, helping to form healthy red blood cells and regular maternal tissue5. Priced at £3.99 for 24, the lozenges come in two trays of 12, making them perfect to carry discreetly in your handbag for those unexpected bouts of nausea.
All products are available from www.seabandmama.com and independent health food stores and pharmacies.The ginger lozenges and wristbands are also available from Lloyd’s Pharmacies from mid July. Also available are Sea-Band Adult Wristbands, priced at £8.15 in grey, and Sea-Band Child Wristbands, also priced at £8.15 available in blue, camo green or pink.
Sea-Band is committed to providing drug and risk-free solutions to the prohibitive feelings of sickness that can accompany long journeys, pregnancy, chemotherapy and recovery from operation. Headquartered and manufactured in England, the original Sea-Band wristbands are now distributed in over 50 countries worldwide.
Sea-Band products are based on the principles of traditional Chinese acupressure, which aim to balance the flow of energy (or ‘Chi’) around the body within a network of subcutaneous meridian points. This philosophy is supplemented by a western scientific approach, which has proved that applied pressure to these points can inhibit the brain’s perception of pain, anxiety and stress6. The Sea-Band form of acupressure is clinically tested and FDA approved.
