For those Queasy Days…

Pregnancy is an exciting journey; don’t let morning sickness ruin it!
Our passion is to offer reassurance & comfort with the very best natural products giving mums-to-be the best start, advocating wellbeing with the aim to support parents through those early days of pregnancy and beyond.

What is morning sickness?

Morning sickness is known for its horrendous symptoms of nausea and vomiting, although a real nuisance it actually affects around 80% of women and is caused not by the baby but by hormones produced by the placenta. These hormones are responsible for keeping your pregnancy going, some may say that this is a good sign! Typically the symptoms start around the 4th week and usually stopping around 12th-14th weeks, but for some women it can extend longer. If the vomiting becomes really severe then you may be suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum, which leads to dehydration and requires medical attention.

What is Acupressure?

Acupressure is an alternative medicine technique derived from Asia over 5000 years ago. Traditional Chinese Medical theory describes special acupressure points that lie along channels in your body. It works by stimulating the meridian system to bring about relief and aid discomfort. This theory is based on traditional Chinese Medicine and similar to acupuncture…. but without the Needles!!!

Myrtle & Maude’s wristbands use the principles of acupressure to counteract feelings of an upset tummy, either from travel sickness, motion sickness, morning sickness or vertigo.
Our bands are a listed medical device classification 1. They have a stud, which apply gently pressure to the ‘Nei-Kuan’ points, which has allowed many people to feel relief. The bands must be worn on both wrists so that the stud is pressing downwards onto the ‘Nei-Kuan’ point.

What do the NHS say?

New NHS guidelines mention there is evidence that acupressure may help reduce nausea and vomiting and can play a useful role in treating Morning Sickness. Acupressure, similar to acupuncture, involves wearing a special band or bracelet on your forearm may also be effective in reducing symptoms of nausea in pregnancy.
Wear all day long for relief especially when on the move and we recommend you put them on when you first wake up.

 

Myrtle & Maude’s range employs the uplifting, soothing and settling powers of plants and herbs to combat the trials and tribulations of pregnancy.

BREXIT UPDATE:

Unfortunately due to Brexit we're seeing some of our European and International customers receiving significant customs bills. As a precaution we're temporarily suspending our deliveries outside the UK. 

COVID19 UPDATE:

We’re aware that Royal Mail are still experiencing delays in their deliveries in some areas. Unfortunately we cannot cancel orders which have already been dispatched.

Delivery is from as little as £3 to addresses within in the UK – and free when you spend over £50 on our products. We usually ship all goods within 24 hours on confirmation of your order and payment, once shipped your order will be marked as “completed” so you know it’s on its way.
