This is too cool. I get excited to see people changed and blessed with these products.

Below are a few testimonials on using Shaklee nutritional product to help conceive, during pregnancy and from a midwife’s perspective. But first a note from Shaklee on
pre-natal nutrition and Shaklee supplements for pregnancy.

Note from Shaklee Home Office: Pre-natal nutrition
All the nutrients needed to meet the U.S. RDA for pregnant and lactating
women are available in existing Shaklee supplements. With the approval of
the obstetrician, Shaklee Vita-Lea, Iron Plus C, B-Complex, and Super Cal Mag Plus can offer an excellent prenatal supplement program for pregnant women.

Moreover, Meal Shakes and Carbo-Crunch Bars could be added as convenient
snacks (not meal replacements) to make sure the extra calories needed
during pregnancy are packed with good health and nutrition. We suggest
a basic plan that includes 2 Vita-Lea tablets, 1 Calcium supplement, 1
Iron Plus C, 1 B-Complex, and of course, a balanced diet to help support a healthy pregnancy. http://www.shaklee.net/edwards/main

While the herbal products, Optiflora, Garlic, Stomach Smoothing Complex, Shaklee Defend and Resist, and Gentle Sleep Complex, should be fine for women to take during pregnancy, our Health Sciences personnel recommend these products be taken with the approval of the attending physician. In the case of Herb-Lax, and Moodlift, again we recommend expectant mothers seek the advice of a obstetrician also, before using these products. -- Your Friends at Shaklee http://www.shaklee.net/edwards/product/DigestiveHealth

Testimonial #1: Infertility:
After 5 years of infertility, I became pregnant after using Shaklee's Soy Protein twice a day for 1 month. I had endometriosis but didn't even know that until I had a laporoscopy. I used fertility drugs, had artificial insemination, to name only a few, nothing worked. I quit using the Fertility drugs one year prior to conceiving. I don't know how or why but I am convinced it was the soy protein! http://www.shaklee.net/edwards/product/20665I also was taking Vita-Lea and B-Complex – K. Hesketh

Testimonial #2: Infertility
Six months after our wedding Scott and I decided to start our family. What was expected to be a simple goal became our most difficult life challenge. The next seven years were filled with tests, procedures, surgeries and disappointment. Finally we were blessed with a pregnancy with in vitro fertilization. Miranda, our million dollar baby changed our lives dramatically. A few weeks after her birth, I was inspired to remove all the toxic cleaners from my home. That's how I became interested in Shaklee. What a change it made in our lives.

We listened to a tape on infertility and Shaklee products and decided to explore this route for our second child. We BOTH began supplementing with Shaklee's Vita-Lea, B-Complex, Vita-C, Vita-E, Zinc and Energizing Protein. (Editors note: Shaklee's Vita-Lea, B, C, and E can all be found in a Shaklee product called Shaklee Basics, which consists of a daily Vita strip of each of these products) http://www.shaklee.net/edwards/prodNutEF

We also made a few dietary changes: no dairy, organic when possible and hormone-free meat. When Miranda was 21 months old I learned I was pregnant again. Oh Happy Day!
This pregnancy only required feeding our bodies the necessary nutrition to do what bodies are intended to do--conceive and grow a healthy baby. I had a terrific pregnancy, no nausea or complications. Kellen, now 3 1/2 is the healthiest, happiest boy I know. Both children use Shaklee nutrition and have never needed medication or antibiotics. The average child goes to the doctor 15 times a year! Shaklee keeps my children healthy and "drug free".

I suggest you clean up your home by removing all toxic products and use the best nutritional supplements you can buy, SHAKLEE! I believe the years of heartache and medical procedures could have been avoided with the simple, easy addition of Shaklee to our diets and our lives. –B. Leschke http://www.shaklee.net/edwards/prodHou

Testimonial #3: Shaklee During Pregnancy:

I decided to use Shaklee Nutritional products instead of the prescribed pre-natal vitamins during my pregnancy. I did a some research and found that what I was already taking on a daily basis was more complete than ones doctors prescribe.

Aside from providing pre-natal nutritional support, I also used many of the
Shaklee products as remedies for some common "discomforts" that occur at
different points of a normal pregnancy. I hope that these hints help other
mothers to be!

I found in early pregnancy (first trimester) that I would have emotional
swings and tearful moments. One or two Shaklee GLA capsules, (3) B-Complex and (2) Shaklee Cal Mag Plus would calm and soothe my nerves. I also used calcium (3 or 4 at a time) before bedtime to help me sleep better and prevent leg cramps. The only leg cramps I got (and they were VERY painfully intense) were on the evenings when I skimped on the calcium. http://www.shaklee.net/edwards/product/OsteoMatrix

At various times throughout the pregnancy, I had some minor nausea, queasiness, and even acid reflux , just like all the books and magazines will warn you. I found relief by using Shaklee Peppermint Ginger Plus teas (cooled for a refreshing drink), and 5 or 6 Alfalfa tablets. At one point, just for a few weeks, I could not stand the smell or taste of my favorite Shaklee Energizing Soy Protein. I did not want to go without, so I opted for
the delicious Shaklee Meal Shakes (which tasted great to me) and I would add one scoop of the soy protein. I also used the new Shaklee Instant Protein when I made hot cereal for breakfast.

I found that my skin got much drier and just using more lotion did not help. I then discovered that the Shaklee Enfuselle Calming Complex sealed in with Enfuselle Hand and Body Lotion would soothe and heal any dry patches or rashes. I also made sure to use the Shaklee Enfuselle Hand and Body Lotion- all over- after every bath or shower to prevent stretch marks with excellent results.

I also have had no swelling and only the minimal healthy weight gain. I attribute that to drinking a lot of Shaklee BestWater and using Shaklee Alfalfa (to minimize water retention) and using the Shaklee supplements to give me and the baby the nutrients we both need to be healthy and happy!

I am excited to announce that our healthy and beautiful baby Sofía was born March 5th, 2001. I thank Shaklee products for helping me enjoy a wonderful pregnancy and birth of my baby girl. I think I have fallen in love with Shaklee all over again! Very Enthusiastically, M. Anderson-Delgado http://www.shaklee.net/edwards/prodNutEF

Testimonial #4: Shaklee Pregnancy: A Midwife's Perspective
After delivering 76 babies in the home - without anesthesia, fancy
equipment, and a staff of doctors, nurses, aides and orderlies, I'm convinced that maternal nutrition is the single most important factor in the production of healthy offspring and a well mother. Shaklee mothers experience significantly less blood loss (2-3 teaspoons compared to 1 to 2 pints). Their placentas are smaller, firmer, and healthier. There is less vaginal tearing. Newborn babies are more alert, more contented and less prone to birth-related injury.

Specific points:
1. There was no colic noted in the Shaklee babies.
2. One patient ate Vita-Cal all through her labor and had almost a pain
free experience. Apparently the needs of the muscles are so intense that
by supplying the calcium, she greatly reduced the sensation of contraction.
3. Childbearing years are very hard on a woman's body. Yet the women
taking Shaklee food supplements had fewer complaints of constipation and
vomiting. In running blood tests on these women, it was found Shaklee
vitamin products were absorbed and utilized by the body. Synthetic
vitamins were not.

I can't imagine anything that is more valuable to you as a parent than a
healthy child. The time to invest in that child's health is while that
child is developing. The cost is well worth it to have the healthiest
baby you can have, because once that baby is born, there's not much you
can do. You can do so much while that baby is growing inside you.

Shaklee Supplements suggested: 3 Tbsp. Instant Protein daily,2 Vita-Lea daily,1 Vita-E 400IU per meal,1 B-Complex per meal,4 Alfalfa per meal,2 Lecithin per meal,1 Zinc per day,1 Iron per meal,4 Calcium Magnesium per meal, 1 Herb Lax at night for 3 weeks, 2 at night until 7th month, and 4 at 8 months, 5 at 9 months. Fairly high levels of Herb Lax are recommended because half of all toxemia is caused by poor elimination. As a woman's body starts to soften for delivery, joints are actually softened up, so
when delivery starts, the baby's head can pass more easily. All organs
are pushed out. Hormones soften the intestinal tract too. It becomes
jammed up and pressured and has more difficulty eliminating toxins.

Nursing: Extremely important to continue with your Shaklee Supplements.
