8 Amazon Products Every Pregnant Woman Will Appreciate

During pregnancy, there are so many things that can annoy a woman or make her feel uncomfortable. From morning sickness to relentless migraines, it seems like a period of 9 months full of unwanted surprises. But every problem has a solution that can address it head-on and treat it successfully. That’s why we gathered 8 products that many pregnant women out there might consider to be lifesaving.

1. A cocoa butter massage lotion that many pregnant women will adore. The 250 ml bottle helps prevent and treat the appearance of stretch marks during pregnancy. It improves the elasticity of the skin and is enriched with vitamin E and collagen.

4.5 stars out of 5

Its non-greasy formula helps the lotion to penetrate the skin faster and most importantly it does not stain your clothes. It’s best to ask your doctor before using it since skin sensitivity increases during pregnancy.

Benefits: Users love how fast the cream is absorbed. They also like that the bottle comes with a pump, which makes the job a lot easier. Lastly, the fact that there is no strong scent seems to be another plus.

Flaws: Some people have noted that there is no cocoa butter smell in the product’s new formula.

Promising review: I am currently 39 weeks pregnant, and I have been using this product since I was 12 weeks pregnant on my belly and thighs. I have no stretch marks on my belly, and I guess this product does work well for preventing stretch marks. @Amazon Customer

2. A pregnancy support belt that relieves back, pelvic, and hip pain. It comes in different sizes, and its micro-thread technology makes it comfortable to wear. The belt expands as the pregnancy proceeds and the belly gets bigger. It stabilizes and lifts your belly, helping you to maintain good posture.

You can keep wearing it after you give birth in order to ease discomfort and support your core muscles. The belt supports muscle memory, so your body will get used to it pretty quickly.

Benefits: A book included along with the belt explains, in detail, how to put the belt on and what each strap does.

Flaws: Some people have complained that the material of the band isn’t as soft as they would like.

Promising review: I’m so glad I took the plunge and ordered this support band. I’ve been suffering really bad with this pregnancy, and I’m only 26 weeks. Before I placed my order, I could hardly move or walk or even roll over in bed. Since using the pregnancy support band, the pain has eased off a lot, and I have a bit more mobility, and the pressure definitely isn’t as intense. I’d highly recommend this to anyone. @Jade Maria Lambert

3. A full-body pregnancy pillow you can sleep, sit, or even nurse on. It comes in 5 different colors and the cover is made of 100% organic cotton. It helps with your sleep and the different types of pain or discomfort that come with pregnancy. Its material also helps prevent rashes and irritation.

4.5 stars out of 5

It’s perfect not just for pregnant women but even for those suffering from chronic pain or recovering from surgery. It can also help people who sleep with multiple pillows trade them in for this one massive pillow.

Benefits: Everyone raves about how comfortable this pillow is and how well it supports their backs.

Flaws: It might feel a bit too heavy to move it around the bed during the night.

Promising review: I love it and won’t go anywhere without it! I’m 20 weeks pregnant and used to sleep soundly before pregnancy, but now every night have trouble sleeping. I’m usually a front sleeper so it’s quite difficult to get used to side sleeping. I’ve slept with the pillow for 3 nights now, and I’ve had the best sleep since getting pregnant. I feel supported on my side, and if I want to lean back, my arm doesn’t get squashed under the pillow. The pillow isn’t too firm and supports my leg and head softly but doesn’t go completely flat when I lie on it. @Fiona B.

4. A seatbelt adjuster that makes pregnant women feel more comfortable and safe in the car. It’s easily adjustable and comes with detailed description about how to set it up yourself. It might also prove useful for those recovering from abdominal surgery.

4.6 stars out of 5

You can remove it any time you want and give it a nice wash in the washing machine. It doesn’t need batteries to operate.

Benefits: It is very easy to adjust and very comfortable for the belly. It’s not bulky at all and most women have noted that they feel safer in the car having it on.

Flaws: You can’t really wear anything apart from pants in order for this belt to suit you perfectly and not annoy your inner thighs.

Promising review: I’m a worrier, so as soon as I found out I was pregnant, I invested in this straight away to go on my driver’s seat. I tried to be cool and didn’t read the instructions at first, and it kept sliding, but once I read them properly, it hasn’t moved an inch since. It’s perfect and really comfortable, and if you have bad nausea, like I do, it’s great to not have anything touching your stomach. Doesn’t impair your driving whatsoever. Barely feels like it’s there. @Hannah

5. Compression socks for both men and women, that will prove lifesaving during pregnancy. They come in many different color combinations and are double stitched. They are very comfortable and easy to wear. You can wash them without them losing any of their compression abilities.

4.5 stars out of 5

They are made of 70% nylon and 30% elastane. They produce great results for swollen feet since they improve blood circulation. This way, not only do they prevent swelling, but they also treat it faster.

Benefits: People seem to love how comfortable the socks feel and how ideal their length is. Some people have also found them to be perfect during flights when their feet tend to swell up.

Flaws: You might need to get a larger size than you do with ordinary socks since they are on the smaller side.

Promising review: I accidentally bought the wrong size, and with size 9 feet and calves that don’t fit in standard boots, I thought I messed up. However, I was surprised to see they still fit. Definitely a little snug but for compression socks, I don’t think that is exactly a problem so much. The fabric is great and the seams aren’t that noticeable. Would recommend. @Jordan Boyce

6. A tea blend that is perfect for women suffering from morning sickness or those who tend to get nauseous. It is caffeine-free, with peppermint and ginger scents that refresh and relax you. It comes in pyramid-shaped sachets and doesn’t contain any pesticides.

4.4 stars out of 5

It can be combined with pregnancy vitamins and pregnancy tablets. The packaging is biodegradable and all ingredients are ethically sourced.

Benefits: Many women tend to find it very relaxing and keep drinking it even after they’ve given birth. It is also delicious and the tea bags are high-quality.

Flaws: There haven’t been any reported flaws for this product.

Promising review: I keep going back to this blend even though I am not pregnant anymore. When I was pregnant, it was my favorite go-to herbal tea, and one of the rare things that did not make me nauseous. Now I just enjoy it as a naturally caffeine-free option while breastfeeding, and I heard raspberry leaf is great to have postpartum as well. @Darragh Curry

7. Baby bump headphones that you can attach to your belly while playing music from your phone. It’s the perfect way to calm your baby and talk to them. A splitter is also included in the package, so you can also listen to the music your fetus is listening to.

4.3 stars out of 5

A baby can hear after 20 weeks and form memories after 30 weeks. This means that whatever music you make them listen to after that point will stay in their subconscious forever.

Benefits: The sound is not too loud, so the baby won’t be annoyed inside the belly.

Flaws: Some people have noticed that the adhesives on the belly buds don’t last for very long.

Promising review: These are fantastic. My daughter loves these and her bump is also enjoying them. Thanks for the great service and a fantastic product. @Mrs. M. Farquhar

8. A migraine relief roll-on that can help you get rid of headaches in the most natural of ways. It battles migraine, tension, sinus, stress, exertion, and even hormonal headaches. It comes in 8 different essential oils that are very soothing.

4.1 stars out of 5

The scents include peppermint, lavender, geranium, wintergreen, spearmint, camphor, helichrysum, and lavender. You need to apply it on the temples, forehead, and back of the neck at the first sign of a migraine.

Benefits: People seem to be impressed with how good the roll-ons smell and how good they are at relieving headaches and migraines.

Flaws: Some people were disappointed by how small the bottle is.

Promising review: I have severe migraines. I’ve tried so many products. I was skeptical but figured it couldn’t be worse than prescribed medication for my migraines. I used a very small amount. It quickly absorbed into my skin and I began to have immediate relief. I have extremely sensitive skin and it didn’t cause any irritation. It also smells good. The price might seem high for the size of the vile but a little goes a long way. Now it’s the only thing I use. @crystal
