Emu oil and pregnancy


Pregnancy is an important period in the life of a woman, who must constantly adapt to ever-evolving needs. Her body constantly changes right up to the big day. A healthy diet is the first step towards a healthy pregnancy. Nevertheless, a woman must deal with many changes to her body during pregnancy.


What changes to the body does pregnancy cause?

The physical changes of pregnancy also cause discomfort that can be controlled or minimized with a daily routine. Some of the most frequent changes during pregnancy are:

  • Skin sensitivity
  • Lower back pain
  • Problems with blood circulation
  • Tenderness of the breast
  • Stretch marks
  • Hemorrhoids


Tips on how to prevent or minimize symptoms of pregnancy

Sensitive skin

Some women have more sensitive skin than others. Their skin becomes intolerant to certain body products, causing rashes and itching. It is recommended that women use gentle and moisturizing soaps and creams that maintain the epidermis’ hydrolipidic film. This natural protective film protects the skin against microbial infections and regulates moisture of the skin’s cells.


Lower back pain

Lower back pain is one of the most frequent complaints of pregnant women; it is caused by the increase of volume of the uterus, the rear position of the fetus and weight gain. Regular exercise can help to strengthen both the abdominal and back muscles. For major back pain, choosing the right analgesic cream is crucial in ensuring that it doesn’t interfere with the fetus’ development.


Problems with blood circulation

Weight gain and the compression of the uterus on the abdomen’s blood vessels causes a pregnant woman’s legs to swell and become heavy. Varicose veins can also appear. To prevent varicose veins from appearing, it is important to stretch on a daily basis, avoid prolonged standing, and, when resting, elevate your legs. Massages with moisturizing creams can also do the trick: simply massage your legs starting at your feet and working your way upward.

Emu oil: ideal for pregnant women

Moisturizing and hypoallergenic, 100% pure emu oil can help to improve the skin’s elasticity and suppleness. Its anti-inflammatory properties also help to reduce pain and swelling. As a high-quality dry oil, it quickly penetrates the skin and does not leave a greasy feel.

Emu oil is really effective. Thanks for sharing this with us. I had started massaging my skin from the 14th week of my pregnancy. Due to sensitive and dry skin, I was able to see stretch marks on stomach and womb and thighs too. Just massage it with appareil cellulite and EMU oil and see the results within few weeks. Take care.
