Our founder, Rachel, was constipated while pregnant and didn’t know the safest remedy to take. In fact, after searching up and down the aisles of her local pharmacy, she wound up taking a product that she later learned was deemed not safe to take. She made it her mission to ensure all women know what products are safe during pregnancy. All healthy mama products are an ode to constipation!
