Why we love Schmidt's,
and pack it in every Belly & Bag

If you know Belly & Bag by Baby Boldly, you know we spent a year sourcing and vetting the best non-toxic contents to offer busy, expecting mommas a pre-packed hospital birth bag. We’re two moms who have “gone before you” and are proud to make preparing for birth easier than before. We love that our bag makes mommas feel confident in their prep for their hospital birth.

There’s a thousand birth bag checklists available and while much is the same, there are plenty of differences that can dizzy any momma-to-be. As one of our customers states, “Baby Boldly takes the guesswork out of knowing what to pack.” But we didn’t just want to sell expecting mommas a brilliant idea that saved them time and stress, we wanted to help her care for her body, too. So we took our time and only packed the best non-toxic inclusions available that would be effective, yet gentle and safe for her sacred body.

Researching, vetting, swiping, choosing, packing - so you don't have to.

Of course, no birth bag would be complete without deodorant, so we evaluated and tried on many swipes of different natural-based deodorants. If it didn’t pass our high-standard test, it didn’t get in our birth bag. So we found Schmidt’s deodorant and loved it then packed it in every tier of our non-toxic, pre-packed hospital birth bags. It’s travel size, so you’re not over-packing. That’s usually an issue when packing, so we consider this a total #momwin. It’s fragrance-free, so for those with an extra sensitive sense of smell, (thanks a lot #pregnancyhormones) you’ve effectively neutralized any body odor. 

Schmidt's Naturals brand was started by a pregnant momma

Did you know Schmidt’s was founded by a fellow momma-to-be named Jaime who was frustrated by the lack of natural options to care for her body? So she made her own and introduced natural and effective body care to the marketplace with her business partner Michael. That’s a #boldmomma! We’re so grateful Jaime turned a problem into a helpful solution for anyone who wants to live toxic-free while protecting their body. Schmidt’s is plant-based, certified vegan and cruelty-free and effective - you’ve got the absolute best packed in your birth bag. 

Why this matters...

Expecting mommas are more interested in non-toxic living than perhaps before they learned they were pregnant. The idea of ingesting or using anything toxic while growing a human inside you is unsettling. While there’s not a lot of research done on pregnant women, we can certainly assume that using non-toxic products are much better for your body and overall health. The products we vetted and pack in your hospital birth bag are there to honor the sacred time you are living in pregnancy and birth and new motherhood.
