6 Natural Ways to Pamper Your Pregnancy

Excerpted from Your Perfectly Pampered Pregnancy

  • For a super relaxing nap—and yes, you should take them often— try snoozing 15 minutes on a lavender pillow. By dusting a pillow case with lavender powder, or tucking a potpourri of lavender flowers under your pillow, you might find you fall into a more gentle, relaxing nap. Do however choose only French or English lavender. Spanish lavender can be very stimulating.

  • To pamper your pregnant belly—and help reduce your risk of stretch marks—soak a washcloth in small dish of warm milk, and apply to your tummy. Re-dip and re-apply for up to 15 minutes, then add a rich moisturizer like pure cocoa butter.
