Daddy Clay: Hey there, welcome back to the lab. I'm Daddy Clay. Daddy Brad is away on paternity leave. We want to thank our sponsors, BabyBjorn for bringing to you this special episode. Now, if you've got a wife that's expecting or just delivered a baby, it's a great idea to put together a thoughtful gift basket of healthy products for her and the baby. What do you get? We've come here to Whole Foods in Austin to get a few ideas. Daddy Clay: Here we are with Hibiscus, who is the Whole Body Merchandiser here at Whole Foods Market and she's gathered a bunch of products that dads can put together as sort of a gift basket for an expecting or new mom. So, Hibiscus, now I've got to ask. Did you get hired like you walked in the Whole Foods and say "Hi, my name's Hibiscus" and they hired you. Hibiscus: It was just like that, exactly. Daddy Clay: So, tell us about the products that you've picked out for expecting or new moms? Hibiscus: We have a few things. We have supplements and some body care items and always what to Expect When You're Expecting, one of the greatest books. Here we have DHA which studies have shown that helps to support brain development in children. Daddy Clay: So this goes along with the prenatal vitamin? It's another supplement? Hibiscus: Exactly. You would take a prenatal and a DHA and that would be perfect. Something else that seems so simple but something we don't think about. When you're pregnant and have a big belly you can't bend over and scrub your legs. And that's a very thoughtful gift. You can think, "I know that you can't tie your shoes, I know you can't scrub your legs." Daddy Clay: You don't think this is going to backfire on the dad that's going to be like "you're so huge you can't bathe yourself." Hibiscus: No, no. I actually have to say it's some of my pregnant moms' - it's their favorite product. Many moms are very nauseous, so ginger is great one for nausea. We have ginger supplements that are chewables, we have liquids. We even have ginger candy. Another one that's really good as aroma therapy. It is one that it's a little bit touchy. You never want to wear aroma therapy oils when you're pregnant. But combinations like Ylang, Ylang and rose are great during - actually giving birth because they are strengthening essential oils. If you're having a home birth you could use as a candle diffuser or if it's at a hospital you can also put it on the pillow. Daddy Clay: But you don't put these on mom? Hibiscus: You don't put these on mom. Yeah, you never want to wear essential oils when you are pregnant because they are very concentrated. Mother's Special Blend. One of my favorites. If we had smellovision, you would love it. It will make you crave chocolate candy. It is for stretch marks and helping to keeping your skin smooth. Something that even dad can help out with because you could rub it on mom. Daddy Clay: Or put it on my stretch marks? Hibiscus: Or you could put it on mom so you can give her a nice massage. You could work it into yours too. Daddy Clay: Where's my dad cream for my dad stretch marks? Hibiscus: Something else is really great is teas. They're warm. They're always soothing. We all love tea. This is great Mother's Milk for mothers once they have their child if they're not lactating correctly. It has herbs like finne creek and milk thistle which have been shown to support producing milk for mothers. Also Raspberry Leaf and Pregnancy Tea which helps support a healthy pregnancy and healthy uterine walls. Daddy Clay: It says very much, "I care about your health. Here's some tea. Chill, will you relax? Because you're driving me crazy." How about the nipple cream? I'm curious about the nipple cream. Hibiscus: The nipple cream. I'm sure you're very curious about this one. When you're breast feeding, your child is sitting there and it's biting and it can become very chafed. It is all natural herbs that this is made out of and you can put on it and it's completely ingestible. So even if you ha
