Silver Nipple Soothers™
Donated by Amorini USA
RETAIL VALUE: $55.00
Opening Bid: $15
“Amorini Silver Nipple Soothers™ are designed to protect the sensitive nipples of breastfeeding mothers between breastfeeding sessions.
One of the most common challenges a breastfeeding mother faces is the nipple pain, which in many cases begins in the first days of breastfeeding and returns when babies start teething. This is often caused by an improper latch or by the nipple area chaffing against garments.
Amorini is a set of two nipple-like shells, hand crafted in Italy from the purest Silver that can be molded into shape – Sterling Silver 925 ‰.
Unlike creams and balms, Amorini leaves no residue on the skin ensuring that your baby does not ingest any potentially harmful chemicals.”

Placenta Encapsulation + Tincture Services
East Valley Only (Ahwatukee – Apache Junction – Chandler – Gilbert – Mesa – Queen Creek – Tempe)
Donated by Manifest Mama
RETAIL VALUE: $170
Opening Bid: $45
Almost every single mammal consumes their placenta after birth (excluding marine animals). The placenta is loaded with iron and vitamins B6 and B12, as well as estrogen and progesterone, both important postpartum hormones. It’s benefits include helping to stop bleeding after birth, replenishing iron levels, and stabilizing hormones. Many women also find it increases milk production and bonding thanks to its oxytocin content. It has been around for centuries but is just recently gaining popularity in the US.
Placenta tinctures are made by slicing off a small piece of the raw placenta. It is placed in a jar of high grade alcohol to steep for 6-8 weeks. It is then filtered and placed in a dark glass dropper bottle. The tincture can be used long after the pills are gone. They come in handy during PMS, menopause, times of transition, and stress. If the tincture is kept in a cool and dark space, it will last for many years.

My diverse professional and educational background comes together in a way that allows me to work with families in different, but interlaced, facets of their lives.
During our holistic nutrition sessions I provide tools and support to help build a sustainable relationship between you and healthy nutrition. We’ll dive into what a holistic approach to nutrition is. We discuss your goals and help put together a plan for meeting them. We discuss where you are at and where you want to be with food, how you can get there, and what you can do to support your journey into a healthy way of eating.
