Pregnancy Tips for Summer

Summer can be a wonderful time of the year for you to prepare for the arrival of your little one. But it does bring with it some different struggles for pregnant women. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of our Pregnancy Tips for Summer to help you through it! 

It’s important you make sure you’re taking care of you and your baby, whilst you’re having a fun time in the summer! It is the final summertime before you become a mother.

Enjoy the Pool!

Swimming is a great exercise for pregnant women, so jump in the pool and have a swim! It provides relief from carrying your baby around, and relieves your joints too. The bonus is that it cools you down instantly! So it’s good for your body, and it gives you a break from feeling hot and sweaty if you’ve been in the sun, or are just having an extra hot day in your pregnancy.

Be Mindful of the Sun

Of course, enjoy the sun and the pool, but make sure you’re protected from the sun. Your skin has increased sensitivity when you’re pregnant so it’s a good idea to lather up with suncream, or up your daily SPF.

Also, make sure you’re wearing lighter colours, and you’ll match the season and keep cool at the same time! Stick to loose, flowy clothing. Head to the shops for lovely and flowy summer dresses, maxi skirts and pick up some flip flops to keep your feet from overheating and swelling. You can dress for the summer and be comfortable while pregnant!

Beach Pregnancy

Explore the Local Attractions

Summer offers plenty of opportunities for enjoyment, especially when you explore local events and attractions that are both fun and pregnancy-safe. Visit local markets to indulge in fresh, seasonal produce, attend outdoor concerts where you can relax and enjoy the music, or take casual walks on nearby hiking trails that are easy and accessible. 

Additionally, picnics in parks with shade, or casual walks during cooler parts of the day can be enjoyable and manageable. These activities can keep you active, entertained, and connected to your community. While ensuring you stay comfortable and safe. Engage in hobbies that you love and that relax you, and involve your partner or friends in your summer plans to make the season memorable.

Plan a Babymoon

If you’re up for a little travel, consider planning a babymoon—a relaxing vacation before your baby arrives! Choose a destination that’s not too far and offers plenty of opportunities for relaxation. Whether it's a beach resort, a mountain retreat, or a cosy cabin, a babymoon can provide a wonderful break and allow you to connect with your partner.

Create a Relaxation Space at Home

Transform a corner of your home into a serene relaxation space. Set up a comfortable chair or hammock, add some soft cushions, and surround yourself with your favourite books or soothing music. This can be your go-to spot for unwinding and enjoying quiet moments throughout your pregnancy.

Embrace the joys of summer and cherish these special months as you prepare for the exciting journey of motherhood. With these positive activities and tips, you can make the most of this season and create beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.

Pamper Yourself

Take advantage of the summer months to indulge in self-care! Treat yourself to a prenatal massage, enjoy a pedicure, or simply relax with a good book by the pool. If you prefer a quiet day at home, why not simply unwind with a good book by the pool? 

Taking time for yourself is essential during pregnancy. It helps you feel rejuvenated and ready for the arrival of your little one. So go ahead, schedule that spa day or set aside some time for relaxation—you deserve it!
