Pregnancy is a beautiful thing, it’s true. But it’s also a time for stretch marks, varicose veins, cankles, morning sickness (or all-day sickness for the super-lucky ones like me!) and out-of-control hormones that’ll have you weeping whenever you see one of those schmaltzy nappy ads on the tv. Happily, there’s no need to fret anymore because Babyology has come to the rescue with a brand-spanking-new range of pamper products for expectant mums that will have you feeling as glamorous as a pregnant Naomi Watts on a good day.
Sydney mum Renna Danelutti developed the Mum To Be range after enduring nine months of morning sickness hell while carrying her own precious daughter, Melissa. The end result of her agony is a collection of delicious beauty products that promises to make pregnancy a little easier for the rest of us! The luxe Australian-made range includes stretch mark cream, bath and shower foam, fragrant candles, a face mask for zapping pregnancy break-outs, and a reviving foot spray for spritzing over those tired, swollen tootsies.
It’s all totally gorgeous but it’s the little touches you’ll love the most. Like how the fragrance in the shower foam washes away as you rinse so it doesn’t trigger any nausea. And how one of the candles smells like baby powder so you can daydream about your pending new arrival while cat-napping on the couch.
Everything in the Mum To Be range is organic and free of horrible things like petrochemicals, sulphates, artificial fragrances and other nasties. Which means you can slap it on your tum or wherever else you fancy without worrying about whether it may harm your baby. And we recommend that you do. Because, let’s face it, there’s not going to be a lot of time to pamper yourself once that new baby arrives!
Mum To Be is currently available from selected baby and maternity boutiques in New South Wales, Queensland and Tasmania. For everyone else, they just launched an online store.
