Natalia vital touch pregnancy and birth products- review

Recently I was lucky enough to become a #nextorganicmum with Natalia Vital Touch. The company Vital Touch sells the Natalia range of natural organic products for pregnancy, labour and after birth developed by pregnancy expert Katie Whitehouse.

I was sent some of their gorgeous products at the end of my pregnancy to try out and use during labour and after birth.



I tried the Natalia Labour and Birth box which would make a really lovely gift for a mum to be, it included Natalia Labour Bath Ease with aloe vera, lavender and clary sage, Natalia Labour Massage Oil with sunflower oil, bergamot, clary sage and jasmine, the Natalia Labour Instant Energiser pulse roll on with sunflower oil, frankincense, rosemary and peppermint, a massage information booklet and an organic cotton flannel.

The products were all nicely packaged in a calming green and blue box in frosted glass containers and looked luxurious and fancy, the flannel was really soft and the massage booklet was full of really useful tips and techniques on pregnancy and labour massage, I couldn't wait to test these products out! 

I also received Natalia Prenatal Bath Soak containing aloe vera, lavender, vetiver and ylang ylang, Natalia Prenatal Instant Unwinder pulse pointer with sunflower oil, lavender, vetiver and ylang ylang and Mum's Miracle Balm with rosehip seed oil and rose.


I loved the cool and sophisticated look of these products, the pale green colours and glass bottles looked smart and relaxing, the usage instructions were clear and easy to read without covering the bottles in writing either. 

I couldn't wait to check out the products and began smelling them and trying one or two products right away, the pulse point unwinder was the first thing I tried. It smelt really refreshing, it wasn't too greasy and after letting it absorb for a few moments it didn't mark the cuffs of my top, there was a really refreshing strong relaxing smell which lasted quite a while.

Over the last few weeks of my pregnancy I used the products particularly the Prenatal Bath Soak, Labour Massage Oil, Mum's Miracle Balm and both Roll-ons and like every one of them. All the Natalia products are made with natural organic ingredients (where possible) and every product is tailored for it's intended use with the particular ingredients it contains. Each of the products smells as lovely and refreshing as the next, it was difficult to know which to chose sometimes!

My favourite product has to be the Labour massage oil and while I did not have a chance to use it in labour, due the the super speedy arrival of Little 3, I did use it lots once I went past my due date (it contains clary sage oil which can be rather potent and so it is not advisable to use it before your due date). I massaged it into my bump morning and evening, it was lovely and soft as well as soothing on my stretched skin, I didn't develop any stretch marks despite being bigger this time around than I had been with the girls and I think the oil definitely helped with that. I also have sensitive skin and a lot of products in the past have made me itchy but the Natalia products did not.

I enjoyed testing the Natalia products and am still using them now particularly the energiser roll-on which offers a little boost after the long sleepless nights with a newborn. I recommend them if you are looking for something natural and a little bit fancy to pamper yourself or give as a gift to someone who's expecting.
