10 Essentials You Need If You’re Pregnant

If you’re pregnant then you might have everything you think you need, until your baby is born, or alternatively, you might not know what you need, and what can help make your pregnancy easier and more comfortable.

Here’s what you need

1. You’ll want to know what to expect at each stage of your pregnancy, and so pregnancy books are a great way to make sure that you know that your experience and feelings are normal.

2. Morning sickness remedies are vital if you’re suffering from nausea If you’re still in the early stages of pregnancy then you might not be at this stage yet, or it might not affect you. However with as many as 80% or mums to be suffering from morning sickness, the chances are that you will too, and you’ll want to be prepared.

3. Stretch mark creams can help to prevent stretch marks, and so if you’ve grown considerable or are anxious to slip back into your bikini as soon as possible, then you’ll want to make sure that you’re doing everything you can to prevent stretch marks.

4. It won’t be long before you need maternity clothes as your normal clothes are the wrong shape as soon as you start showing. You’ll want to get clothes that are roomy enough so that you can still go about your daily life without too much discomfort

5. You’ll soon find that you’ll need maternity bras as your pregnancy progresses. Instead of making do with your existing bras it’s much better to get bras that fit you, so that you are not uncomfortable.

6. Not every new mum will be able to breastfeed easily. Breast pumps are designed to help express breast milk and are available in manual or electric versions, so if you think that you might need one, there’s bound to be a breast pump that’s right for you.

7. Skincare is important during pregnancy, as the majority of the nutrients in your food are diverted to your growing baby. If you’re skin isn’t looking as good as it used to, and you miss that healthy glow, why not treat yourself to some pregnancy skincare products?

8. Essential oils and candles can help you to relax and can even be used to help reduce the affects of morning sickness. If you’re pregnant and still leading a hectic life, then you might find that these help you slow down a bit.

9. Massage oils can be very beneficial and will help to ease the many aches and pains associated with pregnancy. Using them can also help to improve the blood flow which can help you to relax.

10. As the day gets closer, you’ll want to make sure that you have your hospital bag packed with everything you need whilst in labour, and in hospital afterwards.
