    Want to know something incredible about this apple crumble recipe? Not only is it seasonal and delicious, but there are even a couple ingredients that make it beneficial for breastfeeding. Now it’s in no way a pure lactation recipe, but oats and almonds are known to increase lactation so that’s the perfect excuse to make and consume this wonderful fall treat, right? Right!


    6 medium honey crisp apples
    juice of 1 lemon
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    ¼ to ½ cup granulated sugar, depending on tartness of apples
    ½ cup dried cranberries

    ¾ cup all-purpose flour
    1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
    ½ cup granulated sugar
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    ½ cup shaved almonds
    ½ cup melted butter


    • Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray your baking dishes with pam. I used a pie dish as well as an 8” square dish.
    • In a large mixing bowl juice your lemon and add in your dried cranberries to soften.
    • Core apples and cut into 3/4 –inch pieces. Feel free to peel your apples or leave the skin on. I left the skin on mine. Mix into your large bowl with cranberries and lemon juice. The lemon juice will help your apples from turning brown. Add in cinnamon and sugar and mix.
    • In a separate bowl make your topping. Mix together your flour, oats, sugar, salt and almonds.
    • In a small sauce pan over medium heat melt down your butter. Mix into your topping.
    • Distribute your filling mixture into your baking dishes and cover with your topping.
    • Place into the oven and bake between 1 hour and 15 minutes and 1 hour and 30 minutes or until the juices are bubbling, apples are soft, and the crumble top is golden brown. Enjoy!

  • Why We Give #NNThanks

    Give #NNThanks with Nine Naturals This Season and On!

    Bringing a new baby into the world is no small task. And neither is caring for one--or many--afterwards. In juggling work and home life, it's easy to get caught up in the stress and forget about counting one’s blessings. Research shows that gratitude helps people maintain more positive emotions, improve health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships. Cultivating positive thoughts and feelings is good for your own wellbeing and therefore that of your unborn baby too.

    At Nine Naturals we have a lot to be thankful for and want to encourage others to find the things they are thankful for as well! This month, we asked what you were most grateful for this season. See what other inspiring women gave #NNThanks for by visiting our Instagram page or read them here below.

    We encourage our readers to recall good memories, appreciate the present, and remain hopeful. But don’t limit it to just Turkey Day, find ways to be thankful all year round!

    “I’m giving thanks this year for a safe and healthy pregnancy, a rewarding and fulfilling career, and the best business partner and team I could ask for.” - Grace Lee, Founder of Nine Naturals

    "I have a newfound respect for parents of 2+ kids. These days I'm grateful for any miracle involving not forgetting more than 3 things a day (a minimum of 3 is a given!). In all seriousness, I'm grateful for my beautiful, healthy family – my endlessly supportive and loving husband, my wildly creative and curious son, and my yummy little baby girl." - Rachel Blumenthal, Founder of Cricket’s Circle

    "This season, after a cross country move to an entirely new city, I am thankful for resilience—from my husband, our three year old, and for BURU. Newness is a blessing. I am so grateful we are embracing this change as a family." - Morgan Hutchinson, Founder of Shopburu

    "We're thankful for the recent expansion of Mott 50. Anne and I designed the new Mini Mott Children's Collection alongside our growing families. It was important that our kids have fashionable sun protection as well!" - Monique Moore and Anne Botica Reilly, Founders of Mott50

    "I am thankful for being a strong, independent woman who has followed my dream of creating truly natural, healthy cosmetics that help make women feel beautiful inside and out." - Melissa Buckley, Founder of Honeybee Gardens

    "Grateful to be living proof that best friends can go into business together." - Dana Rubinstein and Tamar Rosenthal, Founders of Dapple 

    "Having children really helped me focus on what is important in life. I am simply so thankful for my children's health and that I get to see them smile everyday." - Emily Hsu, Founder of Au Lait

    "Thankful for friends and family” - Samara Granofsky, Founder of Trust Fund Beauty

    "Life is crazy and fun right now as a working mom with a toddler! As Style Director for A Pea in the Pod and editor-in-chief of our blog, keeping current on fashion and social media plus traveling keeps me on the go so I make sure to spend a quiet moment with my son Grey every day. I cherish and am so thankful for our early mornings and evenings we call “relaxing time” where we read our favorite books and snuggle. It doesn't get any better than that!" - Olivia C Myers, Style Director of Destination Maternity

    "I am blessed with an amazing support system. My parents who will always be my role models, my sisters who are not only my business partners, but my best friends, my hubby who loves me unconditionally and my kids who make me smile and remind there is always (always!) something to be thankful for!” - Lori Caden, Founder of Belly Bandit

    "I'm thankful for the little things in life. It's the little things that make up our lives. The bigger events just connect them." - Kwany Liu, Founder of Bundle Organics

    "I'm so grateful this season to have my husband back home from deployment. He was gone for 7 long months which makes me even more grateful that he is back safe. Doing the single parent thing has been so difficult and I have such strong respect for those that do it every day. Now that we are a family of 4 again things seem to be just as they should be... and I'm ever so grateful." - Erin Schurtz, Founder of Mommi

    "What I am thankful for this season is of course my family and friends. I am nothing without them and without their love. Having just recovered from a horrible flu (which my lovely daughter gave me...), I am also thankful for my and my family's health. As long as I have my health and my family and friends, I really don't need much else! I feel so fortunate and am excited for this holiday season." - Yoko Shimada, Founder of Mitera Collection

    “So cliche, but truly, I’m thankful for my amazing family. I’m blessed with an adoring husband who supports me through everything and three healthy and FUN children. I’m also thankful that I get to live my dream of running a Company that helps women start their own families.” - Marjorie Goldner, Founder of PregPrep

    "I am thankful for our four kiddos and while there never seems to be a dull moment, I wouldn't trade it for the world. I feel like I have won the lottery in hugs, belly laughter, laundry, dirty dishes, late night school projects and most of all, love. Being part of Biotegrity Corp. and Promise Prenatal from the beginning has also been an incredible journey. Whether it's serving the amazing women who use our line of all natural products or providing prenatal nutrition in areas suffering from poverty and malnutrition, it is a great honor to play a small role in giving babies the best possible start in life." - Jennifer Sprayberry, Founder of Promise Prenatal

    “Right now I'm especially grateful for my husband. I’ve just been away in the US for work for 11 days, and it is wonderful thing not to have to worry about how your family will get along without you. We all missed each other like crazy but I knew that they were back at home in Bondi having a blast together. We both have our own businesses so life is a constant juggling act, but supporting each other every step of the way and trying to have as much fun as possible on the journey makes me grateful each and every day. I also feel grateful that we are able to set a good example to our kids who are used to seeing us split parenting and housework 50/50.” - Sarah-Jane Kurtini, Founder of Tiny Beans

    "I am so very thankful for our baby girl, Noah June. She is our everything." - Sarah Gibson Tuttle, Founder of Olive And June

  • 5 Benefits of Meditation During Pregnancy

    Plus one pregnancy meditation you can do right now.


    Article & Photo courtesy of Well Rounded NY

    If you have ever watched a laboring woman work through a contraction, or if you yourself have gone through one, you may have noticed her enter a moment of deep or even serene concentration . It may have even looked like she was meditating.

    As a doula and frequent meditator, I have always been deeply interested in exploring the mind-body connection. Birth is a physically and emotionally demanding process; just like an athlete training for a marathon, it is important for pregnant women to explore beforehand some of the sensations and feelings that they may experience the day they go into labor. By practicing meditation throughout pregnancy, you are ultimately providing yourself with a blueprint for a calm and peaceful birth. The techniques you employ during meditation you will carry with you when it comes time to have your baby.

    Here are 5 benefits of meditation

    1. Tuning out distractions. If you are giving birth in a hospital, chances are you will be surrounded by noises and people that are unfamiliar to you. Whether it’s the beeping of a monitor or a nurse checking in, it is important to be able to tune these distractions out so that you can relax and concentrate. Meditation is the single greatest way to practice inner concentration. Close your eyes or lower your gaze and practice letting all of those disturbances melt away.
    1. Lowered heart rate. When you release the mind, you release the body as well. Meditation is a great time to check in with your physical self. Where do you carry your tension? Where do you need to release? In taking deep, slow breaths, you will begin to notice that your heart rate will drop as well. A calm and steady heart rate will also indicate to your baby that you are happy. Enjoy this moment as a gift to yourself and your child.
    1. Deeper connection with your baby. Sitting quietly can often help in forging a deeper understanding of your baby. What is your baby doing in this moment? Is she/he moving around or calm and peaceful like you are? I like to encourage my client to visualize her baby, stroke her belly, or whisper encouraging words. Meditation is a wonderful time to deepen that
    1. Increased Theta. In the human body, there are five main frequency brain waves: Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta, and Gamma. The Theta State is one of deep relaxation and calm. When you meditate, you activate Theta. Theta is associated with creativity, visualization, problem solving, and intuition. The higher our Theta frequency, the more expansive our consciousness becomes, and the more expansive our consciousness, the more open we are.
    2. A chance to learn more about yourself. My favorite benefit of meditation is the  opportunity that it offers to connect with your subconscious mind. Quieting all the external chatter allows you to engage in a deeply personal and intimate dialogue with yourself. In meditation, you are encouraged to experience thoughts as passing clouds. Allow whatever comes up in this time to pass you by without holding on to it, or judging it. What are your hopes or fears about giving birth? Meditation will illuminate a lot of these answers for you. You may surprise yourself about how many of these answers are already within you. Trust the voice that arises when you meditate.

    And your meditation: Try practicing this breathing meditation in a way that is useful and personal to you.

    1)   Start with 5 cleansing breaths in through the nose, out through the mouth.

    2)   Exhaling breath should be long and slow. Imagine blowing bubbles, or air coming out of tire.

    3)   Inhale peace/exhale stress and tension.

    4)   With each breath in, go deeper and curl your breath around your baby.

    5)   Feel your baby vibrating with love.

    6)   Repeat 3 times.

  • 4 Not-So-Guilty Pleasures From Mommi


    When Erin Schurtz became pregnant, like every mom, she scoured for pregnancy-safe nutrition products to ensure the health of herself and baby. She found products that provided the recommended amounts of folic acid, iron, and calcium, but couldn’t find any that provided an extra 15 grams of protein. This was because most protein powders and power bars were not safe for pregnant or nursing women. And thus, Mommi 3-in-1 (prenatal protein shake) was born.

  • Benefits of Babywearing

    6 reasons you should be wearing your baby.


    Article & Photo courtesy of Well Rounded NY

    There is something truly intoxicating about babywearing–getting that newborn babe as close to you as humanly possible now that she’s on the outside. But the benefits of babywearing go far beyond it simply feeling good; there’s actually tons of emotional and developmental benefits for baby and mama alike.

    “Touching and being held is one of those primal needs babies have (they can’t move themselves!) so meeting that need can actually make your life easier down the road,” says babywearing educator and early childhood development specialist Sarah Longwell-Stevens, owner of Small Things NYC.

    Below, Sarah rounds up the 6 biggest benefits of babywearing.

    For the Baby:

    1. Physical Development. Did you know babywearing works similarly to tummy time? Holding your baby’s body upright against gravity helps develop his or her muscles, and stabilizing the head and upper torso against gravity will help your baby grow stronger. Babies also get to feel the motions and rhythms of walking long before their bodies are ready for it. This helps explain why babies who are held and worn frequently often hit motor milestones before babies who are
    1. Centering. It is rough being a baby! Babies have so much to make sense of in the world and it can be overwhelming. Being held and worn helps babies reorganize themselves, just like deep breaths or a hug help you when you are having a rough day. They have the familiar motions of walking they experienced for hours a day before birth, the familiar sound of a heartbeat, familiar smells of their loved ones, all in the middle of a great big cozy hug. Babies who are worn for even just short periods in a day tend to cry less. Which is a win for everyone involved!
    1. Digestion. New babies are just getting their digestive systems online and it can be hard work. The upright position of being worn can help the milk go down through the body the way you want it to rather than back up all over their clothes! They also are receiving a lot of touch while being worn, and we know touch stimulates hormones that make babies use their food more efficiently and grow faster without additional caloric intake.
    1. Stimulation. Have you ever looked at the world from stroller or knee level? It’s not that interesting. All the action is up where the grownups are! When babies are worn, they get to learn more about the world around them and engage in more conversation, all from the confines of a safe environment. Being held close while experiencing new things often gives babies a sense of security and safety that encourages independence as they get older.

    For the parent:

    1. Convenience. Having a baby is a big life adjustment and babywearing can make it a little easier. There is no stroller to lug up and down stairs, it’s easier to get things done around the house with a fussy or sleepless baby, and parents can get some sunshine and a cookie while baby takes a nap. Strollers can totally have their place, but often new parents are so worried about their babies that they can’t stop checking them. When the baby is right under your face and you can feel all of his or her movements, you can relax a little more because you can constantly feel that they are doing just fine. And if you need to compulsively check them you don’t have to break stride.
    1. Strength. You know how everyone says women should lift weights to build bone density? Guess what? Babies are natural weights and they love to be lifted and carried. It makes sense that at a period where women are losing some bone density from pregnancy and nursing that there would be a built in mechanism to get it back–carrying that baby who loves being held anyway. And with the right carrier, it shouldn’t hurt your back at all. If you’re feeling discomfort from your carrier, it is likely because it isn’t fully supporting your body or your baby’s body. Carriers fit everyone differently, so if you’re uncomfortable, there is probably something else that might work better for you.

  • Benefits of Plant-Based Oils

    The physical changes that your body undergoes during pregnancy—swelling, stretching, and shining (AKA, “pregnancy glow”)—can all be controlled and/or comforted by indulging your skin in plant-based oils. Especially during the fall and winter seasons, when cold weather strikes and these issues are exacerbated, these natural elixirs can also prevent and soothe cracked, wind burned and chapped skin.

    Plant-based oils are not only non-toxic and therefore, pregnancy-safe, they are also rich in natural antioxidants and vitamins, making them a powerful, all-natural alternative to chemical-laden drugstore moisturizers and skin treatments. Botanical plant materials are non-greasy and non-comedogenic, making them safe for all skin types, as well as easily absorbed into the dermal layers of the skin. They defend the skin’s lipid barrier from environmental pollution, and act as a humectant to keep the skin moist. You can use botanical oils singularly or combine them with other botanical oils--and even makeup--to maximize skin care health.

    Argan and coconut oils, while both tremendously beneficial to skin, are only two of the many plant-based oils that can pack a punch with only a tiny drop. Here are six lesser-known oils that can cleanse, moisturize and reduce skin imperfections:

    • Borage Seed Oil: Produced from the Borage blossom, Borage oil contains essential fatty acids, including the highest naturally found concentration of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA)—an omega-6 fatty acid—that, when processed by the body, is transformed into a hormone like substance that inhibits inflammation. Used to reduce redness and minimize the appearance of stretch marks, this oil can be found in Nine Naturals Vanilla + Geranium Regenerative Belly Butter.
    • Tamanu Seed Oil: Tamanu oil, sourced from Southeast Asia, helps heal wounds and promote the generation of new tissue—a process known as cicatrization. This oil contains three type of lipids—neutral lipids, glycolipids, and phospholipids—in addition to calophyllic acid and calophyllife, as well as four fatty acids. All of tamanu oil’s components render it a superior non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent, which is why it is a featured ingredient in Nine Naturals' Natural Belly Oil.
    • Mango Butter Seed Oil: Cold-pressed mango butter seed oil—a great source of essential fatty acids, including linoleic and oleic acids—contains tannins that give the oil anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial properties. Commonly used as a base ingredient in body care products, mango butter seed oil can soothe dry, chapped skin, as well as help combat eczema and dermatitis. Find it in both Nine Naturals Simply Natural Lip Balm and Repairing Body Balm.
    • Avocado Oil: Extracted from the flesh of the avocado fruit, the super emollient avocado oil is rich in vitamins A, D, and E, lecithin, and potassium. The deeply penetrating oil, which is an ingredient in Nine Naturals Citrus + Geranium Soothing Body Wash, has anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and cellular regenerative properties, making it ideal for relieving dry skin and nourishing aging skin.
    • Jojoba Seed Oil: Native to the Sonoran and Mojave deserts, this fatty-acid rich liquid wax, which is an ingredient in Nine Naturals’ Natural Belly Oil, is most similar in molecular structure to sebum—the oil that your skin’s sebaceous glands produce—therefore, with continued use it will balance out your own oil production.

    Experiment with a variety of plant-based oils to discover which one (or two, or three) is best for addressing your specific skin and body care needs.
