During pregnancy not only is your body changing but your hormones are also surging, and in many ways you’re more susceptible to health and hygiene issues. But there are plenty of things you can do to make your journey as safe and enjoyable as possible and to prepare for what’s to come, say experts.
Here’s a list of must carry essentials suggested by Vikas Bagaria, founder of PeeSafe, a toilet seat sanitizer spray brand and Jaskiranpreet, an advisor to Credihealth- a medical assistance company, for mothers-to-be while going out.
Water bottle: Drinking water during pregnancy is very important since it helps your baby grow healthy, reduces painful pregnancy symptoms, and keeps your body hydrated for better mental and physical performance. Thus, a water bottle tops the list of must carry essentials for mommies-to-be. Therefore, tuck a water bottle into your bag along side a few portable snacks like raw almonds and an apple.
Toilet seat sanitizer spray: Finding a clean toilet while travelling is a daunting task for everyone and it gets even more crucial, and at times painful for mommies-to-be. During pregnancy you need to be extra cautious as you are carrying a whole new life with you during these 9 months. In order to prevent unwanted infections and UTI, every expecting mother must carry a toilet seat sanitizer.
Antacid tablets: Most women experience symptoms of indigestion during pregnancy, including heartburn. Although it’s typically a harmless condition, heartburn can cause extreme discomfort. Carrying the prescribed antacids is necessary for mothers-to-be.
Mini medicine kit: Carrying a small medicine kit with prescribed prenatal vitamins is a must have for every expecting woman. Prenatal vitamins and supplements are beneficial for all pregnant women. —IANS
