Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital Giving Babies a Toxin Free First Bath with Earth Mama Angel Baby
January 22, 2009 – Clackamas , Oregon – Babies born at Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital (www.keepingyouwell.com) are getting their pure, worry-free first baths courtesy of products from Earth Mama Angel Baby®. The "go organic" program, which began on January 5th, was started because the hospital (located in a suburb of Chicago) made the decision to offer only personal care products and samples for mamas and babies that are 100 percent toxin-free, cruelty-free, vegan and free from all artificial preservatives, fragrances and dyes. They chose Earth Mama Angel Baby as the brand that exemplifies those qualities.
"As a faith-based institution, we take a whole-person approach to wellness that takes into account mind, body and spirit," says Kathy Mitchell, Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital's chief nursing officer. "For our tiniest patients, this means using natural and organic herbal products."
All new moms receive a gift bag filled with Angel Baby® Lotion, Angel Baby Shampoo and Body Wash , Angel Baby® Bottom Balm and Monthly Comfort Tea. Breastfeeding moms also receive Natural Nipple Butter. Women experiencing the loss of miscarriage or stillbirth take comfort with a gift set that includes Light of My Heart Candle set, No More Milk Tea, Healing Heart Pack and other Earth Mama Angel Baby items.
In addition to the products used by the hospital staff for newborn babies and their mothers, support classes offer pure, natural samples to help educate parents about safe ingredients in personal care products. Prenatal class participants and patients receive samples of Earth Mama® Body Butter, Natural Stretch Oil and Morning Wellness Tea.
Natural Nipple Butter is especially relevant since Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital has also made the important decision to discontinue handing out formula samples unless a mother specifically asks for them in writing. "Mother's milk is the most natural baby food and we want to demonstrate our 100 percent support of breastfeeding mothers," says Diane Leonard, the hospital's clinical obstetrics manager. "Breastfeeding offers many benefits, such as strengthening the bond between mother and child and lessening the risks of common childhood infections."
"Having our products selected for use in a hospital setting by new mamas and their precious babies is the greatest honor," says Melinda Olson, founder of Earth Mama Angel Baby. "The goal we work every day to achieve is to formulate the safest, most effective products possible, and to have hospitals recognize that goal, and work together with us to help babies begin life toxin-free is the culmination of that goal."
