As the summer sun intensifies, so do the challenges for expectant mothers. Balancing the joy of pregnancy with the rising temperatures can be demanding, but fear not — we've curated a list of tips to help you not only survive but thrive during the sizzling season.

As always, consult with healthcare professionals for personalised advice based on individual health circumstances.

1. Hydration is Key: Staying hydrated is crucial during pregnancy, especially in the heat. Aim to drink plenty of water throughout the day to combat dehydration and help regulate your body temperature.

2. Dress Cool: Opt for loose, light-coloured clothing made from breathable fabrics like cotton. This can make a significant difference in keeping your body cool and comfortable.

3. Seek Shade: When possible, stay in the shade during peak sunlight hours. This reduces direct exposure to the sun and helps prevent overheating. Even better, hunt out the airconditioner!

4. Get Wet: A refreshing cool shower, or dip in your local pool can work wonders. If you don't have access to a pool or the beach, consider taking multiple short showers during the day to cool down and rejuvenate. 

5. Elevate Your Feet: Swelling in the legs and feet is common during pregnancy. Elevating your feet when resting can help reduce swelling and improve overall comfort. 

6. Morning Relief Iceblocks: Beat the heat with Morning Relief iceblocks. Our specially curated product, designed to ease morning sickness, can be a delicious and soothing treat during hot days. Simply freeze Morning Relief into iceblocks for a refreshing and calming solution.

How to Make Morning Relief Iceblocks:
  • Pour Morning Relief into ice trays.
  • Freeze until solid.
  • Enjoy these icy delights whenever you need a cool pick-me-up.

        7. Listen to Your Body: Pay close attention to your body's signals. If you start feeling too warm, take a break, find a cool spot, and rest. Your well-being and the health of your baby are the top priorities.

        8. Stay Informed: Check the weather forecast regularly and plan your activities accordingly. Avoid strenuous activities during the hottest parts of the day.

        Stay cool, stay hydrated, and enjoy this special time!
