Every pregnant woman deserves to feel beautiful during this particular time in their life. But with the changes in your body happening so fast, it’s impossible to feel beautiful all the time. 

But chin up, mum! You have to be kind to yourself during this moment in your life. 

Allow yourself to indulge. Here are just a few self-care tips that you can try doing to boost your mood and confidence.

4 Simple Self-Care Tips for the Mums-to-be

1 - Stay Moderately Active

We understand that it’s hard to move around, especially if you’re in your final months. Your back can hurt, and your feet might constantly ache when you move around. But unless your doctor has mandated bed rest, you can still try to exercise to feel that rush of endorphins you get when you stay active. 

You don’t (and shouldn’t) have to do strenuous exercise. Try going for a simple walk or easy exercise plans that are catered to pregnant women. And if you’re not feeling it, you don’t have to push yourself. Go for as long as you can and take breaks when you feel any discomfort.  

2 - Allow Yourself to Rest and Relax

Pregnant women have the amazing ability to keep working despite the exhaustion of carrying a child 24/7. But as strong as you are, everyone needs to relax. Don’t be afraid to ask a loved one to take care of an errand for you or a spouse to pick up the slack on the chores. Sit on the couch, read a book, enjoy a movie, or take a nap. 

3 - Disconnect from Social Media

Social media is a great source of entertainment, especially during these trying times, but it can affect the way you think and perceive things. When you see celebrities or influencers with “perfect bodies” or your friends enjoying themselves with cocktails in hand, it is normal to get a little green with envy. 

Instead of fuelling insecurities, try your best to minimise them. Put down the phone and just enjoy the company of loved ones. Give yourself a social media break every once in a while. 

4. Create a Skin Care Routine

Despite popular opinion, skincare routines aren’t just for vanity; they are an essential aspect of self-care. The feeling of revitalising your face is one of the many joys of following a skincare routine. There is a good selection of skincare products out there that are made safe for pregnant women.

It’s not selfish to want to do things that make you feel happy. Pregnancy is tough, and no one deserves self-love more than you—after all, you’re making an entirely new person in your body. When mum is happy and feeling wonderful, the baby will feel it as well. So don’t worry about splurging a little or taking a few days to rest and stay at ease. It is certainly something you don’t need to apologise for. Spend some time falling in love with yourself before welcoming a new life into the world.
