It’s SO important to minimise stress during pregnancy, but that can be easier said than done. Trying to manage home, work and family life stresses while simultaneously undergoing crazy hormonal changes can leave you feeling totally emotionally depleted. A little self-care is now a necessity, not a luxury. The bath has been my haven during pregnancy, made extra chill with a good playlist and Bopo’s Goddess Soak.
A healthy support network is also vital…get the endorphins flowing by choosing to surround yourself with those who uplift you, give you a shoulder to cry on, and also a good belly laugh.
Whether it’s movies on the couch with my partner or having a gaggle of my best friends over for a baby shower, I always like to have some Indian Sandalwood Incense burning to set a relaxed mood.
These also make the perfect little present…I plan on gifting them to our birth support team.
