Fairhaven Health - Your trusted source for fertility, pregnancy & nursing products


 This is something near and dear to my heart and I have not yet spoken of this publicly.  So here it goes........

 I currently have 2 children.  My son is 10 and my daughter is 7.  When my daughter was born with a congenital heart defect and we knew we would face more surgeries and things to come with her so at the time we didn't think we wanted any more children.  Fast forward to when she was about 4 years old, we decided we wanted to start trying to have a 3rd child.  Our family just doesn't feel complete yet.  We have suffered from infertility for the last 3 years.  It has been hard for me to understand why this has happened to us because I knew we were already able to conceive 2 children before.  I have struggled with this a lot emotionally.  Most people don't like to talk about how they "feel" about their infertility.  I feel VERY frustrated most of the time and sometimes it is really hard to see everyone around me being able to have babies and things working out so easily for them.  It is really hard to go into the doctors office and see all the pregnant woman knowing how hard we have been trying.  I have come to terms with many of the feelings that come along with infertility but that doesn't mean that it isn't still hard to go through.  I won't share too much of that here since I am reviewing these products but hope to share more with you in a later post.

  We ended up seeking a specialist in infertility.  This doctor recommended that we try the FertilAid Supplements from Fairhaven Health.  We have already gone through much testing and so we at this point are willing to try almost anything.  We were so excited to try these products to see how well they helped.

These were the FertilAid products for Men that we have tried:

FertilAid for Men Fertility Supplement

Formulated by Amos Grunebaum, MD, the ingredients in patented FertilAid for Men* have been scientifically demonstrated to enhance male fertility and improve overall reproductive wellness as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle. Ideal for men with a low sperm count or for those looking to optimize their sexual health. 

With much testing we had found out just about a year ago that my husband had very very low sperm count with almost no motility.  We don't know if this was the case years before when we were trying to conceive our other two children, but as he is much older now it has effected him in this way now. (It took us more than a year to conceive each time before) When the doctor recommended us to start taking the FertilAid products he recommended them mostly for my husband but then told me I could probably get great results from them as well.   I don't feel like the FertilAid for Men alone was enough but combined with the other products I feel like it gives them just what they need to improve the count and motility.

CountBoost for Men

CountBoost for Men is a non-prescription dietary supplement designed specifically for men who have been diagnosed with a low sperm count - the leading cause of male infertility. CountBoost is not a standalone product, but rather it is designed to be taken along with FertilAid for Men
CountBoost is designed specifically for men who have been determined to have a low sperm count. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), a "low sperm count" is defined as a count of less than 20 million sperm per milliliter of ejaculate. 

MotilityBoost for Men
 MotilityBoost for Men is a non-prescription dietary supplement designed specifically for men who have been diagnosed with a low sperm motility, which along with low sperm count represents a leading cause of male infertility. MotilityBoost is not a standalone product, but rather it is designed to be taken along with FertilAid for Men
MotilityBoost is designed specifically for men who have been determined to have low sperm motility, typically by way of a semen analysis (SA) conducted by a physician.  

After taking the supplements for about 6 months my husband was retested.  When we got the results of the test we were very surprised.  He went from having very very low count with almost no motility to being just at the low end of the chart and there was much more motility.  This was exciting news for us because it meant that things were a lot more possible than we had originally thought.  If he had not taken these supplements I don't think things would have improved so drastically.  Although the results were better he is still in the low category but that is much better than what his results were the first time around.  Seeing these results keeps us very optimistic.

Here are the Women's supplements that I tried:

FertilAid for Women Fertility Supplement 

With an all-natural, non-prescription, patented formula that brings together scientifically-validated herbal ingredients and essential vitamins, FertilAid promotes female hormonal balance and reproductive wellness, supporting fertility and optimizing your chances to conceive. FertilAid is your fertility enhancing supplement and your complete prenatal vitamin - all rolled into one. 

OvaBoost for Egg Quality 

OvaBoost was designed specifically for trying-to-conceive women who are over the age of 30, and for women who have PCOS. However, OvaBoost is also intended to optimize egg quality and ovarian function in trying to conceive women of all ages.
The formulation for OvaBoost was developed on the basis of a large, and ever-growing, body of scientific literature that explains the underlying causes of poor egg quality and ovarian dysfunction, and points to effective and promising natural ingredients for improving egg quality and ovarian function.

FertileCM Cervical Mucus Enhancer

FertileCM for Women is a balanced dietary supplement to promote the healthy production of fertile cervical mucus – the bodily fluid central to fertility and conception. The ingredients in FertileCM have also been shown to support female arousal and sexual sensitivity and strengthen the uterine lining, both of which can increase chances for successful conception.

My body doesn't ovulate every month like it should.  I have been taking Clomid for at least 8 months now just to get my body to ovulate.  I noticed a huge difference in the timing that my body ovulated being on the FertilAid supplements rather than not taking them even with having the Clomid.  The one thing that I really love is that these supplements don't have the side effects that Clomid has.  It is miserable sometimes to deal with the side effects of prescription drugs just to get pregnant.  Being able to take something that doesn't add any new side effects is great.  I also really noticed that from taking FertileCM my cervical mucus was of much better quality.  I recently talked to my doctor about taking these supplements and he said he would recommend anyone trying to conceive to take FertileCM especially if you are on any medications like Clomid.  My doctor told me that day that Clomid can actually dry your cervical mucus making it actually harder to get pregnant rather than helping.  This is another reason I don't want to be on the medication long term.  I would much rather take the supplements and be able to cut out the prescriptions.  I also felt like I am not as "moody" when I take the FertilAid supplements.  I felt like for me personally it regulated my hormones a little better and made my whole body actually feel better and more energetic.  I probably get a lot more nutrients from the supplements than just my regular diet and that sure helped with the overall feel of my health.  I am so happy with the results I received from Fairhaven products and I plan on the continue use of them.
 
As of now we still haven't had any luck conceiving but our chances are much better with FertilAid in our life.  I hope to soon have good luck and be able to conceive. (Fingers crossed!)  I know miracles are possible so I am not giving up.

If you or anyone you know has infertility issues I HIGHLY recommend you check out Fairhaven Health and the supplements and products they offer!!!

<div style="text-align: center;">

These Soothie Sucker Herbal Ice Pops were not only delicious but they serve a great function.  My daughter gets sick pretty easily considering her immune system has been compromised due to surgeries.   I am always looking for ways to boost her immune system and keeping her from catching every bug that is around her.  She loved these Soothie Suckers.  That was a great bonus to me because many things that are made for this kind of purpose don't taste very great.  These Soothie Suckers are supposed to help boost your immune system and that is exactly what it did for her.  She ate these as others in the house were catching a respiratory virus and she DIDN'T catch it.  I was SO excited about this.  She normally catches everything.......and is sick before any one else is.  I have had her eat a few of these Soothie Suckers and she has continued to stay well.  She hasn't caught a bug yet.  If you have a child or family member that gets sick easily I recommend you try these Soothie Suckers!!  They not only taste great but boost your immune system, give you energy, and can possibly help you get well faster.  One of my favorite features is that it has no artificial flavors or high fructose corn syrup.  This is a must have for the holiday season being around all your loved ones that might be carrying a sickness.  Keep yourself well this season with Soothie Suckers!!

Dot&Dot Small Packing Cubes Review


**I received the product featured free of charge in order to give an honest review.  No other product or compensation was received.  My thoughts and opinions are 100% my own and others may have a different opinion.**



See through mesh panel of these travel packing organizers allows you to easily find what you need.
Maintain your privacy while going through security in the airport.
Save time ironing your clothes at the hotel. The packing cube set will help minimize wrinkles on your clothes.
Maximize your luggage space so you can squeeze in more of your stuff.
Traveling with the entire family? Make packing and unpacking easy by assigning a cube per person or purpose.
Save time packing and unpacking by allowing you to unpack only what you need.
These travel packing cubes fit on your luggage, duffel, suitcase, backpack, slim bags on on their own.


I really like that these Dot to Dot packing cubes come in a great reusable bag to be able to store you bags all together.  These packing cubes make a great addition to all of your traveling needs.


This set comes with 4 packing cubes.  I was amazed at how much I could fit into just one packing cube.  These are great for organizing your outfits together for travel making it a lot easier when out on a trip.  It would be especially nice to organize your children's clothing for travel with these cubes. 


Dot&Dot packing cubes are made of great quality materials.  I have no doubt they will last quite a while. These packing cubes unzip all the way around making them easy to pack.  I was so surprised at how much I could fit and how nicely it holds your clothes in place.  These cubes would help you save time while out on the road keeping your clothes from wrinkling so you have no need to iron your clothing.  It is also really nice to be able to use the cubes for different things making it easier to organize when you travel and keep things separate.  I love to use these cubes when traveling.  One person each gets a cube and is able to put many items of clothing in each one and this helps us be able to find things easier and also keep the clothes nice while in our traveling bags.   I am thinking of purchasing some more just to use around the house for organizing.  These cubes are great for organizing and would be great to store sweaters in off season.  I have many things around my home that need organizing and these make a great addition.

If you travel a lot you could really benefit from having a set of these Dot&Dot Small Packing Cubes.

I recently had the opportunity to try this awesome new product from BeeSili.  These Silicone BBQ grill oven gloves and basting brush are a pretty cool product.  It is so nice to be able to use your hands at the grill rather than having to use grilling tools.  Sometimes it is so hard to turn chicken or vegetables at the grill without having them fall through the grate.  Being able to use your hands rather than having to use grilling tools makes grilling some food items a lot easier.  These are also great because they have texture and aren't slippery so they can grip food easily and help you handle it without the chance of having it fall right out of your hands.  Bee Sili SUPER silicone BBQ Grill Oven Gloves & Basting Brush are a great tool and very easy and convenient to use. 


With Christmas now just around the corner this would make a great gift for a family member or friend.  If you like grilling as much as we do in our household I recommend you try out these Bee Sili Silicone BBQ Gloves & Basting Brush.

Consumers looking for gluten free options have three new products available. Foster Farms GLUTEN FREE CORN DOGS, GLUTEN FREE BREAST NUGGETS and GLUTEN FREE BREAST STRIPS can now be found on retailer shelves. All 3 are certified Gluten Free by the Gluten Intolerance Group. We just started shipping the products this summer

The certification guarantees that Foster Farms Gluten Free Corn Dogs, Breast Nuggets and Breast Strips meet strict guidelines and practices required by the GIG certification body.

I am always looking for new gluten free products to try.  I was so excited to have the opportunity to review these delicious corn dogs.  The best part is when your kids are excited to try something new.


I have many gastrointestinal issues and try to eat gluten free but it is hard especially when I don't find many products I like the taste of or if they are way too expensive.  It is exciting to find a new product that was not previously available.



My Review

These Foster Farms Gluten Free Corn Dogs are AMAZING!!  I was worried that these corn dogs would taste very different than traditional corn dogs.  In fact they are much better than traditional corn dogs.  I love the honey crunch of these corn dogs.  They are just the perfect amount of sweetness.  I have found that I like them baked in the oven the best.  They are more crunchy that way rather than in the microwave which makes them just a little more crumbly.  Foster Farms Gluten Free Corn Dogs have the perfect amount of sweet and salty combination.  These are definitely my new favorite corn dogs.  Foster Farms did a great job with this product and I am very impressed.  There have been many gluten free products that I have tried over the years that I really just didn't like but I can't say that about these because I love them.  These corn dogs are great for anyone looking for a quick gluten free meal that tastes great.  I highly recommend you try these corn dogs for yourself.

Recently I was able to attend an amazing blogger event at Salt of the Earth.  This event was so AWESOME.  I was able to make some great new blogger friends and have a great time.


When we arrived we had a little pampering.  We were able to have a nice hand massage with amazing salt scrub.  My hands were so soft afterwards.  This was such a fun thing to be able to participate in.



 After getting pampered we had the chance to eat some delicious food provided by some amazing chefs at Whole Foods Utah.  The food was so delicious!!  It was such a treat to taste such amazing food and know that it was organic and fresh.


 

One of my favorite parts of the event was to be able to make my own luxurious hand cream.  They had the choice to make a salt scrub, a sugar scrub, or a hand cream.  I chose the cream because I knew my daughter also would like to share it with me.  Salt of the Earth has WONDERFUL products!!  I love that their products are so customizable and that you can create just what you would like.  They have the option to customize your order and make it personal for each individual experience.

 

I made a mango ginger scented hand cream and it smells just delightful.  It was one of my favorite scents there.  It was so nice to be able to smell all the different scents and make just what I wanted.


I met so many amazing people at this event!  I had a really great time and was so happy to be introduced to Salt of the Earth products.  I can't wait to try more of their products!!

My Review
 
There are so many uses for the Kidecal decal stickers.  My daughter was so excited to pick a picture she liked and to be able to start labeling all her things.  We chose this cute princess decal.   These decals are awesome.  I am so impressed with the quality of these decal labels.  One of my favorite features of these labels is that I can put them on things and they are dishwasher safe unlike other labels.  These labels are nice and thick and stick very well to anything you want to stick them to.  These labels are great for anything you can think of.  They will even stick to cloth. We have found many uses already for these labels.  One of my daughters favorites uses is labeling all her water bottles for school.  I can't wait to order some labels for home canning.  I love the labels that are like a chalk board and you can write on them so you can change them at any time.  There are so many great choices of labels on Kidecals.  If you are looking for labels I recommend you check out Kidecals.  I bet you will find a decal that suites your needs.
