Dr Hilary Jones gave these a special mention on air a few months back, he’d heard good things about them and backed up that the ‘science’ behind how they work., the ingredients such as ginger, chamomile and mint help with the feelings of nausea but the ice apparently helps too ! Basically Lillipops Iced Soothies are delicious ice pops specially but especially formulated to alleviate the symptoms of morning sickness. And, in recent trials by the AOGOI (Italian Association of Hospital Gynaecologists and Obstetrics) found to be effective in 70 % of cases with no side effects. (Think in the vid I said 90 per cent but hey ho still an amazing result !!)
Available in 5 soothing, refreshing natural flavours – grapefruit & tangerine, lemon & mint, camomile & orange, lime & vanilla and ginger - and with no artificial colours or sweeteners added, simply pop them into the freezer and call on them whenever you feel dehydrated, or a bout of sickness coming on. Include them in your prenatal kit - Lillipops are the perfect aid in the delivery room.
The founder Denise Soden, Lillipops founder, who came up with the idea when pregnant with her third child, herself had an extreme form of morning sickness that saw her hospitalised 13 times during her first pregnancy.
She found ice to be a wonderful food substitute but wanted flavour so she devised her own ice pops with great ingredients.
Recognising the importance to mother and baby, Denise and the Lillipops team have researched the best ingredients preferring to use only natural ingredients suitable for mum’s heightened taste buds and those that have a tradition as remedies. Ginger, for example, has traditionally been used to ease symptoms of nausea; camomile for its calming and relaxing properties; citrus fruits such as orange, lime and grapefruit are refreshing and mint is revitalising and calming for the digestion.
But, there is more to Lillipops than originally conceived. The Lillipops team has been inundated with enquiries and testimonials recommending them to alleviate nausea and an inability to take and keep down fluids caused by various medical conditions including chemotherapy, diabetes, tummy upset and as a post-operative comfort. And, if the nausea is of the self-inflicted kind, they make great hangover cures.
The Lillipops website is a joy to visit, too. You can study self-help tips relevant to the various stages of pregnancy, seek advice if necessary on anything from food cravings to baby names, read testimonials from “pregnancy buddies” and there are even links to other great pregnancy and parenting sites.
