What to Expect—From CBD—When You’re Expecting

by Danielle Cheesman (@daniellesaid)


What happens when you own a CBD company and find out you're pregnant? Fleur Marché's co-founder Ashley gives us the lowdown on her own experience with CBD while expecting.

Note from the Founders: Because there isn’t a ton of research or conclusive data on the effects of taking CBD while pregnant or breastfeeding, Fleur Marché recommends that all mamas-to-be first talk to their OBGYN before making their own personal choice. We personally feel safest using topicals.
  • Q

    Talk to us about your pregnancy! What are some of the most significant changes, cravings or symptoms you've noticed?

    A

    I'm generally pretty healthy but the pregnancy cravings are real. Mine are carbs and sugar—without many exceptions. As I've hit the 7-month mark, I've started to experience ankle swelling and back discomfort.

  • Q

    How has CBD eased some of your more uncomfortable symptoms?

    A

    I swear by our salves and pain creams for my back and ankles. I switch between Apothecanna’s Extra Strength Body Creme (its combo of CBD and arnica feels great!) and Dr. Kerklaan’s Natural CBD Pain Stick (it’s easy to apply, dries quickly and is perfect for on-the-go!). For my ankles, I like Yuyo Botanics' Turmeric Salve; it smells amazing, feels nice, and works!

  • Q

    What has been your favorite CBD product to use during pregnancy and why?

    A

    My skin has also become really dehydrated, so I’ve gotten hooked on Gara Skincare's Youth Serum and Kana Skincare's Lavender Hemp Sleeping Mask, too.

  • Q

    How do you plan on incorporating CBD into your routine once your baby is born?

    A

    While I don't plan on using ingestibles while breastfeeding, I can’t wait to get back to my daily tincture regimen. I usually wake up stressed and have been missing my daily support!

  • Q

    What advice do you have for expecting moms who are interested in trying CBD?

    A

    As a first-time mama-to-be, I've been cautious about what I'm putting into my body, whether it’s deli meat or wine. But I feel comfortable using topical CBD products that don't get into the bloodstream. They’ve been super helpful in making my pregnancy much more comfortable.
