Addressing Anxiety Among Moms-To-Be

Falling pregnant is incredibly exciting, and the chances are that you were over the moon when you first saw those two red lines. Since then, though, you've started to feel a lot less positive about your pregnancy journey. Reasons for this can vary from nausea that lasts all day to mood swings and even susceptibility to pre-pregnancy antenatal depression. 1 in 10 pregnant women also experience severe anxiety at some stage.

A certain degree of anxiety seems inevitable considering that you're facing the largest life change possible. The sheer idea of coping with a baby can get on top of you, as can the stress of increased medical appointments and a need to find a health insurance quote that isn't going to bankrupt you before baby's born. When you think of it that way, it's astounding the anxiety figures remain as low as they are!

Sometimes, though, changing hormones pair with these pressures to create an altogether more worrying pregnancy anxiety. If you feel that you're falling foul at the moment, then don't hesitate to take the following crucial steps towards managing or even overcoming symptoms.

People who cross the Golden Gate Bridge into Oakland have already soaked up enough of the color and culture of San Francisco.

If you and your family did go the other direction, then you’d see how Oakland is the better option. While San Fran appears big, Oakland is actually the biggest. Oakland boasts a population of over 400,000 people, and that’s not counting the 300,00 tourists who pass through. Not to mention the emerging tech industry.

Last Wednesday, Dairy Goat (DG) Goat Milk Beverage for kids officially launched here in the Philippines and I am one of the mommies who got invited to the launching of this product held at Ronac Lifestyle Center, Makati (Thanks Ms.Anya and Ms. Millie). Pediatricians and some people from the New Zealand Embassy are also present at the said event, Mom and Meeeh . I got curious about the product so I went and learned many benefits of drinking DG.

Introducing DG Goat Milk Beverage for Kids (for 3 years old and above), produced and imported from the Dairy Goat Co-operative in Hamilton, New Zealand, DG Goat Milk Beverage for Kids offers powdered goat milk of the highest quality and manufactured by Pacific Healthcare Philippines.

As a mom, I want to give the best to my children and before I gave them anything I make sure that the product is at its highest quality attending the launching of the DG Goat Milk made me think to replace their milk because I learned so many beneficial from Goat Milk's that my kids can get.

Yes, because products have passed international and local standards; Awarded The New Zealand Quality Product Seal, Passed the strictest standard set by the British Journal of Nutrition, Quality, and (Nutritional) Quantity by the Codex Alimentarius and it is approved by FDA Philippines.

Here are the DG Benefits because like us moms Dairy Goat also wants the best for our child.



Gently and Responsibly Made.
  • Naturally More Complete
Like humans, Goats produce their milk through Apocrine Secretion, where milk fat and bioactive components in mammary secretory cells are enveloped by cell membranes as they are secreted. As a result, milk produced by goats has naturally occurring bioactive components.


For A Happy Tummy!
  • Easier to Digest
Casein in milk produces curds in our stomach. Compared to milk sourced from other animals, Goat Milk produces a very loose curd structure with a high proportion of water that is easily broken apart, thus facilitating easier digestion of milk proteins.


Boosts all-around Good Health!
  • Less Allergenic
β-Lactoglobulin is the whey protein that stimulates milk protein allergies. Compared with milk from other animals, Goat Milk has the lowest levels of β-Lactoglobulin; thus making it less allergenic for us! Dairy Goat is undoubtedly the premium goat milk brand perfect for your child.

For my early graders' boys, I am now switching their milk to DG to see my stories for their reaction when drinking the Dg for the first time.
