My Top 5 pregnancy must-haves

Updated: Nov 6, 2020

Here is a list of my top 5 pregnancy must-haves. While pregnant with both my children, I have found these products to be my favorite had to have, cannot do without while being pregnant.


1. Maternity Support Belt

If you do not have or never had a maternity support belt, then you have probably suffered as I did with back pains and aches with my firstborn. When I started experiencing back pains as a result of the weight of my belly, I had to find some way to relieve it. I found these bands to be really helpful by taking the pressure off your back while offering support in the process.

2. Fully body pregnancy Pillows

These are a must! DO NOT SLEEP WITHOUT IT. Either you have already experienced the uncomfortable tossing throughout the night or you are now being warned! I already imagined my sleepless nights of constant tossing and turning with my first before I discovered these life saving, sleep-inducing pillows. No more aches and pains. They offer the perfect balance between comfort and support for your belly hips, legs and back. As a bonus, you can also use this pillow to sit upright in bed to read, watch TV, or work on your laptop. Yes, it worked for me and it will for you too.

3. Skin Care Products


Bio-Oil Skincare Oil

Many of you have probably heard about the dreaded stretch marks that you get while your pregnant. Bio-Oil will actually help to improve the appearance of existing stretch marks formed during pregnancy. Their unique formulation combines vitamins, plant extracts, and oils which help to increase the moisture content of the skin, reducing itchiness caused by stretching and making the skin appear more smooth and supple.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Complete Stretch Mark Care Kit

If you are like me in love with anything cocoa butter, then this is another alternative. It is an absolute great product to get for pregnancy skincare. It has everything you will need for the pre and post-pregnancy stages. Your skin will love you afterward for taking such good care of it while it undergoes unbelievable stretching. It really helped with skin elasticity, texture and tone. You will thank me later!

4. Maternity Belly Band | Pregnancy Belt, Waistband Extender

If you are like me and you refuse to buy maternity clothes yet alone maternity pants that you can only wear for a very short period of time, then I would recommend getting a waistband extender as you advance in maternity. This will by far save you the cost of buying maternity jeans or work pants that really are overpriced and don't quite fit the way you would like them to anyway. My stress was that I could not find longer length maternity pants for my 5 feet 10-inch frame. It just didn't exist. So this definitely was an instant hit for me.
