Putting yourself first during pregnancy

Suggested ad (PACT ORGANIC)

You know that pregnancy isn’t always a walk in the park. But hey, even a walk in the park can be a little exhausting. This is a magical, exciting, and sometimes difficult journey. Making time for yourself can be a challenge, but there are some easy ways to put yourself first during pregnancy.

Schedule some relaxation

If you wait around for time to relax, chances are you’ll never find it. It might seem counter-intuitive, but throw some R&R onto your to-do list. If an hour of down time is going to stress you out, make it ten or twenty minutes. The important thing is that you’re taking the time, not necessarily the amount of time you take.

One easy trick is to swap out your shower for a bath. You already have to get clean, so why not add some luxury to your day? Throw in a few candles, music, aromatic salts, and you’ve got yourself a little practical pregnancy pampering. You could also make a massage appointment, put a nap on your calendar, or set aside some time to practice yoga.

Put on something soft

It’s exciting to know that your body is growing, but it’s less than thrilling to no longer fit into your favorite jeans. Luckily, the solution for this one is pretty simple: get the softest stretchy fabric you can find, and put it on your body. Denim will soon be a distant memory.

You can find pretty much all of your soft clothing staples at PACT ORGANIC. Their mission is to put people first, so they can definitely help you put yourself first. PACT uses organic cotton to make soft, comfortable, and ethically produced clothing: no sweatshops, no child labor, and no discrimination. Their leggings are incredible during and after pregnancy, and their camisoles are perfect for layering and breastfeeding. They also have adorable organic baby clothes.

Think about your needs

It’s natural and wonderful to want to take care of other people, but you have a lot of that to look forward to with your little one. Consider taking some time to think about your needs and whether they’re being met. Are there any responsibilities you could shuffle around or share to make sure you’re taking care of yourself? The world you’re about to bring your baby into is an amazing one, and you make it even better by putting yourself first and allowing yourself to be the best mom you can be.

PACT ORGANIC wants to make the world better too. That’s why they use organic cotton to minimize their impact on the environment and improve the quality of life for the people who make PACT clothing. It’s the same reason they’re committed to fair trade and sustainability: they want to create amazing clothes and change the apparel industry for good.
