the melodramatic mouse is now mellomom
Firstly, my sincere apologies to those that are waiting for this post. I was planning to skip this review but since many had requested, here is my experience with each individual product. There are plenty of great testimonials on Tanamera’s website and Facebook, but these are mine minus the sweetening *winks* Convenience in a Box [...]
I bought Tanamera’s 3 days postnatal care massage package when I was still pregnant with Eli. It was an after-birth pamper that I really looked forward to since enjoying one the last time. Sadly after my 1st session, the happy expectation turned into a “painful” regret *sigh* The 1st therapist that did my urut was [...]
What is it? Iron is a mineral that makes hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout our body. Why is it important? Our blood increases 50% when we are pregnant. So we need more iron to make more hemoglobin for all the extra blood to carry oxygen. We also need extra [...]
Scrub a Dub Dub RM15 for a bar of 125g My Verdict: I started using this herbal scrub end of January, twice weekly and it finally broke into tiny pieces yesterday. That means one bar can last about 2 months, depending how frequent you use it and if you use it for your entire body. [...]
Among all the hypnobirthing audio by Marie Mongan, this is my favourite. I have been listening to this track every night since I was 22 weeks pregnant. Thanks to Joanne for sharing! I have to confess that the words are such a comfort and Mongan’s voice so soothing that this has become my lullaby too. [...]
The cat is finally out of the bag. After weeks of deliberations and even submitting a birth plan so he wouldn’t suspect, today we finally decided to inform Dr Tan about our plans. But it seems that our secret wasn’t much of a secret because he expected it *cis* Anyhow I am thankful that he [...]

In our group were four other couples, three of them having boys and one having a girl The classes are held at WaiHan’s home in Shah [...]
I was introduced to this delicious herbal tea during our HypnoBirthing class. One of the handouts spelled out the many benefits of raspberry leaves for expecting mothers and I thought, Why Not? since I’ll be going to Justlife, so I grabbed a bag on the way. The leaves came loose, so I used disposable tea [...]
What is it? The gentle stretching and massaging of the perineum — skin between the anus and vagina — during the last few weeks of pregnancy. It is usually done during the 34th weeks onward, twice daily for 5 minutes each. “Ouch!” was my exact response when I first read about perineal massage during my [...]
This morning was our 6th antenatal visit to Dr Tan. As usual I was excited to see my little water dragon kicking away in utero. She is really one avid swimmer — but a gentle one compared to Natey’s kick boxing — I wonder if it’s because of all the swimming I’ve been doing since [...]
