Mamma Mia!

Posted October 19, 2005
As a girl who is surrounded by people having babies, I have learned that when you have a pregnant friend, you buy something for her, not the baby. Everyone else will take care of the crib bumpers, the diaper genie, etc., but ultimately, with those raging hormones and expanding body, she’s going to need something just for her. At a recent gift show I came across this new line called Mama Mio, which was developed by three moms with a background in skincare for moms-to-be. The key product, I am told, is the Tummy Rub (stretch marks? What stretch marks?), which was legendary in London and now finally available here. The products come individually or in pre-packaged kits, and prices range from $18-$65.
