Inside my Project B pregnancy box
Who doesn't love getting parcels through the post? It certainly makes a nice change than receiving bills or junk mail!
Since the launch of subscription beauty boxes a few years ago, the concept of receiving a box of products in the post has grown in popularity. These days subscription boxes are not just aimed at the beauty industry; food boxes are also popular and now you can receive pregnancy and baby boxes for the parenting market too.
Project B Box
I was really excited to review a pregnancy box by Project-B. It is a monthly subscription box of wellbeing goodies designed to nurture mothers-to-be through their pregnancy journey. Working with some of the UK’s leading mother and baby brands and industry experts, each Project-B box is tailored to a specific month of pregnancy with handy products, useful tips and information for expectant mummys.
I love how Project B’s subscription box is all about making sure that the mothers-to-be takes some time for herself. In this month’s subscription box, month 7, the theme is “relax”, designed to encourage periods of rest and induce feelings of relaxation during pregnancy. I couldn't think of a better time to start my subscription with Project-B as now I’m in the third trimester, finding ways and methods to relax is exactly what I need!
This month’s box includes a hypnobirthing book, alcohol free wine, special offer on a children’s décor and toy website, feeding cup and a beauty balm. Some of my favourite items include the following:
"Why Hypnobirthing Matters" by Katrina Berry
Why Hypnobirthing Matters by Katrina Berry
Hypnobirthing is a method of birth preparation using a series of simple but effective techniques that can facilitate a calm and natural birth. In this book, Why Hypnobirthing Matters, author Katrina Berry looks at the origins and rationale for using hypnosis for childbirth. If you’re looking for bite-sized information on hypnobirthing, this is a great little book as it explains what you can expect from hypnobirthing and dispels the common misunderstandings, all in a lively informative way. As let’s face it, anything with humour makes things much easier to deal with especially when it comes to pregnancy and labour!
Eisberg alcohol-free wine
Eisberg alcohol-free wine
When I saw that Eisberg alcohol free wine was included in this month’s box I was thrilled! Just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean boring soft drinks are the only beverages on offer when you’re out and about. Eisberg is made in the same way as your favourite wine, the alcohol in Eisberg is gently removed using one of the world’s most advanced techniques to ensure that the original flavours of the wine are kept in tact. The result? Alcohol free wine containing less than 0.005% alcohol, 34 calories per 125ml glass and the real flavour of the wine taste that you know and love! Best of all, Eisberg is available in Chardonnay, Riesling, Rose and Cabernet Sauvignon so there’s a range of choice on offer.
Dr. Lipp’s “Original nipple balm for lips”
Dr Lipp’s Original Nipple Balm for Lips is a 100% natural miracle balm. A favourite with celebrity make up artists, nursing mothers and pharmacologists, this balm for lips is best used every day for soft glossy lips or as a treatment for dry, rough, sore or itchy skin.
Ivy Cabin website offer
Ivy Cabin special offer
Ivy Cabin is a new online store selling quality toys, décor and accessories for children. Their concept is simple, they want to showcase only the best products making online shopping experience as enjoyable and exciting as possible. In this month’s box, you get 10% off your order.
Useful tips and advice from industry experts
As well as all these fab products, this month’s box also includes information from industry expert’s who give useful and independent tips and advice on pregnancy. This month, midwife and health professional Nikki Holdsworth offers advice on eating well with recipes on how to cook chicken nuggets with an option for vegetarians too. There is information on what to expect from month 7 of pregnancy (weeks 25-29), tips on staying active by taking up yoga and other forms of relaxation techniques and what to buy for baby.

I loved receiving my box and looking forward to what surprises will be in next month’s box too. To find out more about Project B, or to subscribe yourself or for a friend click here. To visit their website www.project-b.com
