Lifestyle Natural Health Supplements
When you’re pregnant, it’s reassuring to know that you and baby both have every nutrient and vitamin you need. Lifestyle Natural Health is a holistic health centre, staffed with a team of highly qualified and experienced practitioners. Head to its bricks-and-mortar store in Walton On Thames for advice, consultations and treatments including homeopathy, reiki and acupuncture, or online for organic foods, natural hair and skin care, and natural nutritional supplements. Try BioLife Pregnancy Support Plus for maintaining optimum health during pregnancy, or the Bionutri Natal range for a multi-vitamin, DHA, and folic acid bundle. Oh, and while you’re there, you will just have to slip a little treat into your digital basket – we recommend the luxurious IncaRose skin care range, and the Konjac Green Clay Facial sponge.

Where the Songbird Sings
If mum is happy, baby is happy. Sink into total relaxation on a Where the Songbird Sings babymoon. Explore the local culture of Oman, Sri Lanka, Kerala and Croatia, or stay nestled in the UK. Every holiday is tailored to your needs; hand-selected hotels with luxurious spas, antenatal Ayurvedic treatments and yoga. Experts in pregnancy and travel, and whether you’re travelling as a group, a couple or singly, the team behind the company will ensure your experience is safe, joyous and rewarding.

Snuggle Up pillows
As your bump gets bigger, nights (and days on the sofa) can get more and more uncomfortable. Get a blissful night’s sleep with Snuggle Up’s range of pregnancy pillows. Super-high quality, but reasonably priced the pillows come in a wide range of thoughtfully designed shapes, with a choice of shapes – our L-shaped pillow doubled up as a breastfeeding support and aid for crawling after the baby had arrived! In fact, many families keep theirs for years.

Spiezia Organics
The first company in the UK to achieve 100% COSMOS Organic Certification, Spieza’s gorgeous, pampering products are all handmade with love in Cornwall. Suitable for even the most sensitive of skins, their fragrant oils, creams and scrubs help turn self-care into the most luxurious of treats. Their Restorative Body Balm is perfect in pregnancy; Gotu Kola feeds the skin and restores elasticity – wonderful for preventing stretch marks – while the Rose Geranium fragrance balances both body and mind. A special gift, or lavish treat for yourself.

Little Herbs
Little Herbs products work. A small company with a big heart, their range of award-winning skincare is made following the old herbalists’ rule of using the fewest possible, best-quality ingredients, most from English country gardens. Treat your expanding bump to a bottle of Tummy Rub; a massage oil that can help prevent stretchmarks, or a jar of Bump Butter, full of regenerative oils that will heal and soothe. After your birth, try their excellent Breast Balm to alleviate soreness and help make breastfeeding as easy as possible.
