What a day! Not only did Janelle finish her oh-so-yummy drink after the cameras had stopped rolling but Spencer insists that the Glow mommy mocktails will definitely catch on… they’ll be big!
Click here to see the video of Glow Mama’s founder Lucy Leahy mixing up a mommy mocktail storm on The View From the Bay. She makes a refreshing and healthy Mom-ito and a delicious and powerful Strawberry Diaperi while still somehow managing to have a conversation and squeeze in a few pregnancy nutrition facts. You go Glow Mama!

Thanks to our fabulous Itsabelly Baby Concierge friend Melissa, Glow Mama not only had a big spotlight on Fox12 in Oregon yesterday, but even had an on-air taste test by the host!
And yes, “kiwi-y” is now officially a word!

When we recently learned about the Cal-SAFE (School Age Family Education) School we of course jumped at the opportunity to supply them with some Glow Mama. What an amazing organization - developed and run by volunteers - they provide nutritious food, support and lessons to 35 pregnant and parenting teens aged 15-18 in Oakland. They have dedicated teachers, on-site childcare, school supplies and baby gear all accessible. And, as if the founder and teachers weren’t inspiration enough, check out what the gorgeous girls themselves said when I asked them what made them glow…
“When I was pregnant the thing that made me glow was the life inside me. Having a growing baby made my face brighter and more beautiful.” Jordana Smith
“I feel that people make me glow more when they acknowledge that I am pregnant. Seeing other babies makes me glow because I think about mine.” Alexis Farrell
Cal-SAFE is always looking for donations (good food, yoga equipment, baby gear, doulas and birthing educators, etc) so they can continue their good work… So go on, donate… we do!

So important in fact, that our recent article on keeping hydrated with Glow Mama was posted on the American Pregnancy Association website. Here’s what our resident pre and post natal nutrition expert Julie says…
Good hydration is extremely important for a healthy pregnancy and postpartum period. Water flushes waste products from the cells and aids in liver and kidney function for both mom and the baby. During pregnancy, water is also needed for the body’s expansion as mom’s blood volume increases significantly. Insufficient water intake can be a factor in constipation, preterm labor, and miscarriage, and even slight dehydration can cause or contribute to fatigue. Proper hydration is also important for adequate breast milk production and flow.
Most women know about the need for proper hydration during pregnancy, but many do not get adequate fluid intake. Some women do not like drinking water; others say they are not generally thirsty. Additionally, women are often unaware that some beverages are actually dehydrating.
