Self-care During a Hyperemesis Gravidarum Pregnancy with Viva La Vulva

Self care during a Hyperemesis Gravidarum pregnancy with a belly mask reading

Pregnancy, accompanied by morning sickness and Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG), brings a unique set of challenges. We've teamed up with Viva La Vulva to share some nurturing self-care tips for those days when you need a gentle boost.

As always, consult with your healthcare provider about the best practices and treatments for managing HG during your pregnancy.

Self-care strategies during HG:
  • Hydration: Dehydration is a common issue with HG, leading to dry, itchy skin. Treat your belly with the Mama-To-Be Belly Mask, a hydrating face sheet mask for your belly. Packed with natural ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid and Aloe Vera, it’s crafted to soothe, nourish, and support tight, itchy, and stretching skin.

  • Soak and Relax: Allow yourself a relaxing bath with the Pregnancy Relaxing Bath Soak. This special blend includes epsom salts, colloidal oatmeal, coconut milk, kawakawa oil, and lavender oil, designed to leave you feeling and smelling wonderful.
    *Remember to consult your Lead Maternity Carer regarding safe bath practices during pregnancy.

  • Take a Moment: Refresh your skin with the A Moment For Mama - Pink Clay Mask, featuring all-natural French pink clay, rich in minerals to revitalise tired skin.

  • Rest and Relaxation: Rest is crucial when battling HG, as your body demands extra energy to handle pregnancy and illness. The Viva La Vulva Perineal Massage Oil not only aids in perineal preparation but can also be used to massage strained areas like shoulders and neck. Its subtle fragrance is designed to avoid triggering HG symptoms.

  • Emotional Well-being: HG can be an isolating and lonely journey. Staying connected with others who understand your experience is crucial. Our previous blog on Navigating Hyperemesis Gravidarum highlights local New Zealand support groups that can offer invaluable assistance.

Remember, we are just an email away if you need someone to talk to. You've got this, Mama.
