Sore, Tired Feet
In addition to orthotics, many women also find that compression socks are helpful to prevent foot discomfort. The designers at Mommysox worked with podiatrists, prenatal educators and pregnant women to create special socks for expectant and new mothers.
In addition to foot soreness, many women struggle with foot and ankle swelling, especially late in their pregnancies. Earth Mama Angel Baby Organics makes a foot soak with salts, organic lavender, thyme, peppermint, rosemary and pure essential oils. A few drops added to a foot bath will pamper and soothe your sore, swollen feet.
Earthmamaangelbaby.com is also a fantastic web destination for all your pregnancy and postpartum beauty needs. Be sure to check it out!
Especially in the later months of pregnancy, sleep can be quite fleeting. Our bellies are big, our backs hurt, we are worrying about everything…the list goes on. La Natura has a delightful aromatherapeutic spray, the Organic Sleep Well Neroli Spritzer, that contains 26 certified organic plant and flower extracts combined with uplifting Neroli Oil to comfort and soothe us to sleep.
As your belly grows, you may want to experiment with different pillows to prop your belly up while you're sleeping. Some women prefer the full-body size, while others like a smaller wedge style. It's worth looking into - pillows can make a big impact on the quality of your sleep. Bed Bath & Beyond has a large variety (prices vary), many of which can be used as nursing pillows once your little one comes along!
