Hello beautiful mamas!
The most frequently asked question is about drinking LOV Matè while pregnant or breastfeeding.
This is my personal experience with drinking LOV Maté.I’m not qualified to give advice on what the right choice is for you and always recommend you see your health care professional.
During the first trimester I chose to avoid any stimulants or strong herbs, my body was very sensitive during this time and this just felt right for me. This hypersensitivity ended up lasting my whole pregnancy while I began drinking LOV Maté again I would have a 1/2 serve and only on days it felt right for me. Sometimes I would just have a few sips of Ben's morning brew and that was all the energy I needed!
It was 2 weeks postpartum that the magic of LOV Matè really showed itself. As a new mama of twins to say I was sleep deprived was an understatement.
And when the girls would finally go down, no matter how tired I couldn't nap - I was also struggling to fall asleep at night.
One morning after yet another sleepless night I asked Ben to brew me up a big cup of LOV Matè - the first I’d had in months.
The tiredness melted away and I felt re-energised and clear - total BLISS!
Then a miracle happened - that same afternoon I fell asleep with the girls - my first solid 3 hours sleep since becoming a mama, and that night I was able to sleep deeply between feeds.
I always knew Matè was amazing for energy and that it also assisted in REM sleep BUT I really didn't understand the full extent until now. I experimented with not drinking LOV Maté some days and monitoring my sleep - in case it had just been a coincidence. Nope. There was a direct correlation between my morning LOV Maté and my sleep quality.
With my new role as mama to twin girls, a business to run, and a home to keep filled with love, good food & clean nappies - I'm grateful every morning for this warm cup of goodness we created!
LOV Maté has about the same amount of caffeine as green tea, so if you are already drinking coffee the transition should be very smooth, if you are sensitive to caffeine I always suggest starting with a half serve and increasing from there.
As always feel what is right for you and your body and consult your health care professional for advice.
If you have any questions I love to chat!
Much LOV & Energy,
