Pregnancy is an exciting time in a woman’s life with so much to prepare for the coming baby. But mummies need to be comfortable too. Make sure you have these three things on hand to help make your pregnancy easier! Brought to you by Bloom & Grow.

As soon as you find out you are pregnant, there are plenty of things to start worrying about – doctor’s appointments, the baby’s birth, which hospital you want to deliver at, so on and so forth.

On top of that, your body is changing and you are going through one of the most special periods in a woman’s life. Pregnancy truly is a miraculous time, but so many changes to the body can often cause discomfort.

Don't wait till you’re too far along in your pregnancy to start looking for things to help alleviate the discomfort. These are three awesome hacks you will be glad to have on hand throughout your pregnancy. (And there’s no need for you to waste money on too many things that you cannot use after the pregnancy!)

1. 2-in-1 Bandit ($74.90)

You’ve spent your whole life working hard for the body you want to have. So there’s no reason why you should have to give that all up once you get pregnant. The 2-in-1 Bandit is the latest product from Belly Bandit. It's specifically designed to work with your body during and after pregnancy.

While your bump grows, the band will comfortably lift and support your body in all the right places. The band allows for complete adjustability to grow with your belly. The band also helps to ease sciatic, back and leg pain, while also helping to relieve bladder discomfort and increase blood circulation and flow.

Once you’ve delivered, the band will serve as a hip wrap to restore your pre-baby shape! On top of working out and working hard to gain back your pre-pregnancy body postpartum, this nifty tool will help you bounce back even faster. 

Get back to your pre-pregnancy body without wasting money on expensive slimming/ tightening programmes with the 2-in-1 Bandit. You can wear the band under your clothes for a full day and maybe even forget that it’s there because of how comfortable it is! 

A mummy’s testimonial on the 2-in-1 Bandit ($74.90) 

"Having BellyBandit to support the bump is proving to be increasingly useful! I find the 2-in-1 more fitting for my small frame and you can use it postnatal too!” - Tay Kewei (local celebrity singer, 30 weeks pregnant)

2. Theraline Comfort Maternity Cushion ($99)

Another good tool to have during your pregnancy is the Comfort maternity cushion, which is the highest quality maternity and nursing pillow on the market. This is useful during and after pregnancy. It provides stable support during your pregnancy, relief for your legs, belly and back and once the baby is born; the pillow will safely mould to your baby’s body during feeding time. 

If you find it hard to sleep towards the later stage of pregnancy or right after your pregnancy, the Comfort maternity cushion also allows for easy changing of sleeping positions. With its durable micro-bead filling, it gives great back support for you during your pregnancy and you won’t feel overheated. One of the best things about it is that the Comfort maternity cushion is one of the most affordable baby feeding pillows on the market. 

A mummy’s testimonial on the Theraline Comfort Maternity Cushion

"I love the multi-faceted Theraline pregnancy cushion for pregnancy and beyond. During my first pregnancy, it was my constant companion for supporting my bump, back and knees - I could not get a full night's sleep without this! Post pregnancy, it helped with positioning my baby in an ideal position for breastfeeding. Two years later and I still use the pillow as a bolster, it's the best I've ever had.” - Caryn, 34 (has a 2-year old daughter)

3. Belly Belt ($29.90)

The last thing any mummy should be wasting their money on during their pregnancy is an overly extensive maternity wardrobe. Maternity clothes are only useful during pregnancy and won’t be of much use postpartum.

That is why the Belly Belt is the perfect essential maternity wardrobe accessory. The Belly Belt extends the waistband of your favourite pre-pregnancy bottoms. That way, you won’t even have to change up your wardrobe. You get to wear your favourite pair of pants in a comfortable, discreet and simple manner. This will prevent you from spending unnecessary money buying too many maternity clothes.

With these three simple must-have pregnancy essentials, you’re on your way to a great pregnancy journey.
