Mommy Mocktails™

Mommy Mocktails™ is a social beverage expectant moms can enjoy throughout their pregnancy.  Whether you are in need of a drink station for your event or some delivered to your door – these handcrafted non-alcoholic beverages are low calorie, low sugar, and made with all natural ingredients. Launched in 2017, Mommy Mocktails™ was developed while I was pregnant with my daughter in 2012. I was unable to find a ready-to-drink social beverage that was geared towards expectant moms. The best part about Mommy Mocktails™ is they can also be used as mixers once your bundle of joy enters the world.  

The Forgotten Trimester

Megan Gray is a practicing Ob/Gyn physician, wife and mommy to a busy one and a half year old baby boy. After her recent personal experience with pregnancy and postpartum, she decided to write a book (Forgotten Trimester: A Guide to Navigating the Fourth Trimester) and start a blog (Forgotten Trimester) to help encourage, educate and empower women during and after pregnancy.  When not working she can be found running and working out or on the local golf course with her son who already has an obsession for golf.

Dr. Megan Gray is a practicing obstetrician/gynecologist with over 10 years of experience as well as a new mom and wife.  She has delivered over a thousand babies in her career so far, but it wasn’t until she went through the experience herself that she really understood what was lacking.  While on maternity leave, she was inspired by her own experience to write Amazon bestselling Forgotten Trimester: Navigating Self-Care After Birth.  She is passionate about empowering women with knowledge about their health and self-care.
