What should you buy while you are pregnant? Let us help you with our favourites.
For years, products have always been focused on the new-born, allowing the mother’s journey to take a back. We must not forget that having a baby is hard work. The only thing that pulls the mommies-to-be through is the end result of the pregnancy – the baby. Pregnant women need calming and comforting pregnancy products to prepare them and their body for the new baby to arrive.
Though everyone has a unique pregnancy with different challenges, there are certain pregnancy essentials that can help make the 9 months easier. Right from maternity bras, to pregnancy pillows, to anti-stretch mark ointments our checklist is holistic and encompasses all the pregnancy aspects.
Pregnancy must haves right here
Whether you like to think of your stretch marks as your tiger stripes or whether you would ideally have a minimal amount on your tummy, most mums and mums-to-be have some stretch marks during pregnancy. They can appear anywhere on your body, from your belly to your thighs, your breasts or your buttocks and can be multiple colors – angry red, purple or just a dull light color.
According to most doctors, a big role on whether you get stretch marks or not depends on your genetics vs other factors but having said that, it really helps to keep your skin moisturized during pregnancy.
It helps make your breastfeeding journey more comfortable, helps with your posture and helps you find a good position to feed your baby.
Key benefits of using a breastfeeding pillow:
Eases the strain on your back, neck and arms during breastfeeding
Comforts and supports the baby to feel more secure
Gives baby easier access to your breast as it raises the height the baby is at
