If ever there is a time self-care can be considered a necessity (in our opinion, it’s always) it’s during pregnancy.

Pregnancy is considered a normal part of life and the life cycle but what a woman’s body goes through is nothing short of extraordinary.

From debilitating side effects some endure while carrying their baby to the intensity of labour, we go through a lot.

There’s a definitive checklist when it comes to routine self-care – long baths, longer books and face masks – the latter of which has now been given a special twist just for pregnant women.

Bump Body Mask

The first of its kind, Bump Body is designed to be slathered across your burgeoning bump and left for 15 minutes before being wiped away with a damp cloth.

The mask is rich with essential vitamins and anti-inflammatory properties that help to heal, hydrate and nourish the skin, making sure pregnant bumps are free from irritation.

The soothing formula is 100% safe and is made from Australian, vegan and all-natural ingredients.

Warm Baths

Who doesn’t like a long bath?

Keep the temperature warm (not hot!) add some pregnancy-safe essential oils, a candle and you’re set for relaxation.

Pre-Natal Massage

Massage is great for reducing stress, promoting relaxation, and relieving fatigue and mental strain at the best of times.

So, during pregnancy when our bodies are experiencing all this 10-fold, its justified to splurge on a pre-natal massage.
