Pregnancy, the nine-month-long journey to welcoming your baby into this world is among the most special phases in any woman’s life. Apart from getting the best medical care, rest, and following a healthy diet, a pregnant woman also needs some other things to make her pregnancy comfortable. Here is a list of 10 products that can make pregnancy a breeze.

Maternity Clothes

A woman’s body changes drastically during pregnancy. It is not only her belly that grows; even her limbs get swollen and her breasts get enlarged during this time. Therefore, the first thing that you need is maternity wear. Nowadays, you get many styles and options in maternity wear—chic maternity jeans, a fitted dress with ruching to adjust your growing tummy, t-shirts with pregnancy quotes, a large coat to cover and give you a classy look and whatnot.

Maternity Bra

Your breasts will grow during pregnancy. You will no longer fit in your regular bra. Invest in a good bra that provides support to your breasts. Ideally, you should avoid an underwire bra. Purchase a bra that is one band size and two cup sizes bigger than your normal bra. The soft fabric is preferable as that wouldn’t bother your nipples that grow super-sensitive during pregnancy. Also, maternity bras are designed to help you with easy breastfeeding.

Maternity Shoes

Shoes are important. Avoid wearing your regular heels and flip-flops during pregnancy. Get shoes that offer perfect arch support. You cannot risk a fall during this time.

Anti-stretch Cream

Stretch marks are inevitable during pregnancy. They appear on your belly, breasts, hips, arms, and thighs. However, the good news is that stretch marks can be prevented if you use a good cream beforehand. Invest in a good natural stretch marks cream.

Pregnancy Pillow

Doctors advise sleeping on your left side during pregnancy to help blood circulation. If you find it difficult to sleep on your left then invest in a C-shaped pregnancy pillow. You can also use a U-shaped pillow that would support your side, neck, and back.

Nausea Relief

Morning sickness troubles most pregnant women. Ginger helps to soothe nausea. Buy some ginger drops and keep them handy. When you are on the go, these ginger drops are a lifesaver. Many of these ginger drops also have added vitamin B6, lemon, and mint.

Exercise Ball

Many pregnant women use a pregnancy ball to exercise. An exercise ball helps to strengthen your core without putting pressure on the lower back and pelvis. If you have a desk job, you can also use this ball to sit as it puts less pressure.

Large Water Bottle

Staying hydrated during pregnancy is necessary. Carry a large water bottle to avoid drinking water from untrustworthy sources and stay protected from water-borne diseases. 

Baby Books and Journal

Invest in some good pregnancy books to learn more about pregnancy and childbirth. You can also buy a good baby journal to write down your experiences. You can, later on, read this to your baby and share your memories with them.

Prenatal Heartbeat Monitor

This Doppler device will help you listen to your baby’s heartbeat. This will also help you track and record the heartbeat through Bluetooth on your smartphone.
