Questions asked by mums
During pregnancy, some days you’ll feel beautiful, some days you won’t, just like in everyday life. There will be days when you bask in your femininity. On other days you may be dismayed by your heavier new figure.
The beauty and radiance of a mum-to-be depend on the quality of your sleep, your sense of fulfilment, and your ability to de-stress and stay fully relaxed.
Take good care of yourself: use a good moisturiser for your face and for your body too.
Applying clay masks may help you maintain your scalp’s natural balance.
Useful info: untreated tooth decay may cause an infection which could be harmful to your baby.
Careful brushing twice a day will help to prevent any problems.
Your breasts will become larger from the beginning of pregnancy. Their delicate epidermis is put under pressure and will feel tingly and irritated – this is a sign that the skin is being stretched.
Keep them moisturised as much as possible, using moisturiser rather than oil, which provides softness but no water.
Wear a well-fitted bra since your breasts do not have muscles able to support this sudden growth. To avoid damaging them, maintain a straight posture with your shoulders slightly back.
At the end of your pregnancy, your breasts will secrete a clear, whitish fluid called colostrum. This will be baby’s first meal immediately after birth.
Be sure to change your bra size: you will feel more comfortable, and good support remains the best way of looking after your breasts’ appearance.
Opt for pumps or other flat shoes for your comfort.
