  • Any other mamas fighting off the seasonal germs? I’ve been taking some extra precautions in order to stay healthy, and that’s why I started drinking @teamiblends Profit tea a couple weeks ago. It’s so yummy and boosts my immune system which helps baby Bella! 🤰🏼I double checked with my doc that it is pregnancy approved so I’ve been drinking a cup or two every day and I  have so much more energy! Plus, their to go tumbler is SO CUTE. ❤️ I can’t wait to try all the other teas, especially the detox to get back to that post baby body! I personally recommend for all mama’s out there ☕️ Use CARLYW for 20% off yours! #thankyouteami #thirdtrimester
