And she is a healthcare worker and a social media influencer. Busy muma heh! Alice has written a post for us on morning sickness and some of her tips to help you cope when you might be feeling dreadful. Enjoy 🙂
Morning sickness… WAIT what? Who says that the symptoms are just in the morning? I had them 24hrs a day both pregnancies. Even worse in the afternoon and evening. It’s not the best part of the pregnancy, you’re tired, you’re feeling queasy and your appetite goes cray cray. However you are so grateful, blessed and overjoyed with the great news of expecting a new baby.
I had morning sickness so bad with my first pregnancy that I decided to do some research this time round on what would help to ease the symptoms. I purchased and trialled a few different products that didn’t completely get rid of the pregnancy sickness but definitely helped to relieve the symptoms. So I thought I would share with all you lovely mumma’s planning to have babies or are going through this right now.
Franjos Kitchen Pregnancy Belly Bump Cookies and Crackers
The cookies are great to snack on for a healthy morning or afternoon tea. They taste great and they are filled with delicious, healthy ingredients to nourish you and your growing baby. The cookies contain ginger which is a natural therapy to help ease the causes of nausea. I found these great to have when I first woke up in the morning in the first trimester as I didn’t really feel like much else.
The crackers are fantastic for those salty cravings. When I feel sick I crave salty foods, they are high in fibre and are perfect on their own or topped with your favourite toppings. My personal favourite is cottage cheese, tomato and cucumber.
Franjos Kitchen is a business created by two gorgeous mummas Margot and Jo. Jo is a naturopath, nutritionist and wellness consultant so you know the ingredients they are using are only the best for mummas and their little growing bubs.

I have been sipping on this tea since I was 5 weeks pregnant. It not only helps ease the sensation of nausea but it helps you to just relax and put you feet up while you take 5 minutes to sip on it.

It taste delicious with a refreshing fruity taste, it makes the room smell sensational.

You know the tea is full of the natural nutrients that you require in the first trimester. I am currently in my second trimester and am still sipping this as I love the taste.
