Bath Time And Pregnancy



Making time to relax is so important during pregnancy. Unlike what most people told me, my pregnancy went and is going very quickly. I have been working, renovating a house (not alone I might add) but still, I have had a lot on my plate and finding the time to sit, unwind and relax has been a real saviour for me.


I didn't need to be a big song and dance, with an elaborate ritual which takes time to prepare. For me, I found I was happiest with a bath filled with healing sea salts, a mug of herbal tea and either music or a Netflix series on my laptop. Yes, I do sometimes watch Netflix while in the bath, but don't worry my laptop is well away from the water. For additional relaxation I add a few drops of lavender to the bath, I find it helps me relax even more, and the oils keep my skin feeling soft even after the bath. TOP TIP: add oils to your bath if you're in a rush and cannot moisturise after!

The simplest pleasures are often the ones I treasure the most and the time I spend in the bath, alone, without any distractions allow my mind and body to unwind fully. Which I know will be hard to come by when the baby does arrive, and then they soon turn into toddlers, who want to bath with you with an abundance of toys, which will be awesome don't get me wrong, but not quite the candlelit, self-healing baths I am currently used to.

As, I am now in the later stages of pregnancy - 40 weeks and four days to exact and I write this blog post early in the morning, after waking up with mild stomach cramps it's made me realise how thankful I am to have had such a beautiful, relaxing pregnancy. I have surrounded myself with only positives and have taken time for myself when I have felt like I need it. My self-care has never been more critical, and every inch of my body has been nourished in preparation for the little one to arrive.

For pregnancy bath time I cannot recommend the Living Sea Therapy Calming Bath Salts at night and in the day or the morning the Living Sea Energise Bath Salts

Both products are rich in the Living Sea Complex which is exclusive the Living Sea Therapy, here's a little more about what makes this complex extra special!
