    We do our homework. See the research behind our Breastfeeding Essentials

    Postnatal Vitamins were thoughtfully formulated by experts (who are also moms).

    Our high-quality postnatal multivitamins were carefully developed using peer-reviewed studies that reflect the latest research in postnatal nutrition. The formula development was led by our Medical Advisor and board-certified OBGYN, Dr. Kenosha Gleaton, and an award-winning registered dietitian-nutritionist and specialist in fertility, Lauren Manaker, RD.

    Natalist Nip & Lip Balm is free of parabens and phthalates.

    Parabens and phthalates are endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs)—chemicals that can interfere with the endocrine system. When inside the body, parabens can mimic estrogen. Using products with parabens during pregnancy can be a potential source of paraben exposure to the pregnant person and the fetus. Because of this, the European Union (and now California!) have banned parabens in cosmetic and beauty products. Along with parabens, too much prenatal exposure of other endocrine-disrupting chemicals like phthalates has been linked to childhood behavior challenges and even spontaneous pregnancy loss. Research is still emerging, but we've opted to make our products without these potentially harmful ingredients.
