Pregnancy can certainly be a wonderful but also exhausting time. For this reason, it makes sense to make it easier on yourself and your body with certain tools and items. We’ve done some research for you and came up with a list of 7 must-haves to make your pregnancy easier and improve your well-being.
Sometimes it’s the basics that count the most. During pregnancy, one thing above all shouldn’t be underestimated: practical & comfortable shoes. Shoes that you can put on easily and without effort. This is an effortless way to make your pregnancy easier. When your belly grows, tying your laces becomes increasingly difficult. Also, once the baby is there, it pays off just as much – then you have both hands free. We recommend looking for shoes with a high quality & stable footbed to help out your (probably) already strained back. Ultimately, high quality footwear and a stable footbed not only protect your ligaments and tendons, but also (as far as footwear can influence this) against falls, which can occur due to a lack of proper footwear.
The perfect bra
Sure, every pregnancy is different and not everybody reacts in the same way. Apart from the belly, however, the breasts in particular are among those parts of the body that undergo a fundamental change during pregnancy. This is why you want to support them with high-quality underwear that is specially tailored to the requirements of pregnancy.
A good pregnancy bra can provide significant relief and the necessary support in case of swelling or painful sensations. For this reason, a high-quality pregnancy bra is also at the top of our list of recommended purchases. Also, you might want to consider already having a nursing bra at home in the last trimester of pregnancy. During this time milk may already be leaking.
Another important part of maternity fashion are comfortable panties. Special pregnancy briefs are characterized by excellent support, an excellent fit and a high level of comfort. They are not only particularly comfortable to wear, but also give you the good feeling that everything sits where it should. These days there’s already a selection of classic and modern designs which not only feel good but they’re nice to look at as well. Which, let’s be real, also makes an important contribution to well-being during pregnancy.
Another thing we highly recommend is getting a high-quality nursing pillow. As it can be used as a pillow for sleeping on your side as well, it can add a tremendous amount of comfort and improve your sleep quality when your belly starts growing.
If you’re currently looking for the perfect nursing pillow, we would like to recommend the nursing pillow from Coju:
During pregnancy it becomes increasingly difficult to position yourself and your growing belly comfortably and healthily. Coju’s nursing pillow adapts perfectly to the body of expectant mothers and thus contributes to more well-being during pregnancy. The pillow is also perfect for expectant dads, for example as a side sleeping pillow. Another special feature is the completely noiseless filling of the pillow. Thanks to this neither your partner will be disturbed during sleep nor your baby while breastfeeding. Coju always keeps its shape and is available in two different sizes. The nursing pillow is produced sustainably, fairly and under high quality standards and contribute significantly to more comfort and well-being during pregnancy. This is why we can recommend Coju products to you with a clear conscience.
Yes, we won’t deny it, support stockings usually don’t look so great. However, some women unfortunately tend to get varicose veins during pregnancy. In this case this aid has proved its worth time and time again. If you easily get bruises and/or already have spider veins, the risk of varicose veins is high. In this case it makes sense to ask your gynaecologist for support stockings as they can effectively prevent the development of varicose veins.
“Support belt” or wraparound baby sling
While “support belts” are already better known for pregnant women, many women do not know that they can also use a wraparound baby sling as a stomach support. Thus, it makes sense to get your sling before the baby is born. You can do a lot with it before giving birth – for example, support your stomach and your back if it hurts. This is another way to make your pregnancy easier and actively support your body.
Regular use of nourishing care products can not only effectively prevent stretch marks during pregnancy, but it can also help existing stretch marks to fade faster and more efficiently after giving birth, as it aids the skin in regaining elasticity and resilience.
We recommend: The MommySPA Belly Elixir belly oil has been developed for odor-sensitive pregnant women with a neutral odor. The oil can therefore be used without hesitation during the breastfeeding period, as it does not overpower the mother’s own scent.
