Have you noticed the air in your house is dry? Fly away hair, itchy skin, more coughs and sneezes. Whenever I think about complaining, I remember what it was like to be pregnant over the holidays. Our skin is already stretching to make room for baby. Some pregnant women experience additional itchiness in our hands and feet. Others have less dry skin. We each experience pregnancy individually so bring up any concerns you have with your Midwife.
Its the day after Christmas at New Birth Company, and I am soaking up our humidifier (the water wall), the infused water with cranberries and nectarines, the fire (ok, the fire app) and the smell of our Lavender shea butter skin ointment; perfect for rubbing on growing tummies, rough elbows and sore feet. Stay hydrated Mommies…inside and out !
