Simple Pampering Tips for Moms-to-Be

Being pregnant is a joy as you anticipate bringing a new little bundle into the world! It can also be tiring and uncomfortable at times as your body is being stretched (literally)! It’s important to take care of your body, beginning with the first trimester when morning sickness hits all the way through the 9th month when your body feels like it’s at its limit. These tips for pampering your changing body can help you enjoy the unique stage of pregnancy.

Tip #1: Dress comfortably

Dressing comfortably for your growing baby bump is my number one tip for staying comfortable. Pamper yourself with quality maternity clothing like these leggings from RUMI X eco-friendly active wear. The contoured belly panel can be folded down or worn over-the-belly, depending on your personal preference. These leggings are ideal for yoga, Pilates, barre, or just staying comfortable at home.

Made for the modern mom, RUMI X designs are breathable, flattering and eco-friendly comprised from recycled plastic bottles and coffee grounds. The resulting unique fabric allows for maximum odor control, a dry-fast texture, UV protection and breathability.

Tip #2: Listen to music that relaxes or encourages you

Music is part of my daily routine, whether I am pregnant or not. Music can calm, energize, and encourage. These earbud adapters utilize your existing earbuds to become baby bump speakers. You can easily play music for your little one even before they are born! These Bellytunes adapters come with changable silicone pads so that you can adhere them to you belly for hands-free listening for baby.

Tip #3: Use luxurious & natural body care products!

I love trying new body products, especially when I’m feeling weary. Earth Mama has so many natural products for expecting and new moms. I received the Pregnancy Essentials Bundle and I think it is amazing! The natural scents are refreshing and make me feel pampered after a busy day.

The bellytunes is so sweet. Our baby listened to music in the NICU and it was amazing how he reacted so differently when it was on. I would have loved to have the bellytunes when he was in my belly.
