Studies suggest that as many as two-thirds of pregnant women become more sensitive and reactive to the scents around them when they’re pregnant, with many noticing this change in their first trimester. In fact, Stanford researchers hypothesise that the morning sickness many women experience during pregnancy
may be connected to a heightened sense of smell.
With this in mind, Natural Birthing Company have formulated products with delicate scents and ingredients to ease expecting mum’s through their first trimester and beyond. Here are some of their top ingredients…
