When it comes to babies, Breastfeeding is best, and provides the ideal balanced diet and protection against illness. During pregnancy and after delivery, a mother’s diet should contain sufficient key nutrients. Professional guidance can be sought on diet and the preparation for and maintenance of breastfeeding. Infant formula is intended to replace breast-milk when mothers do not breastfeed. A decision not to breast-feed, or to introduce partial bottle-feeding, could reduce the supply of breast-milk. Once reduced, it is difficult to re-establish. Infant formula should be prepared and used as directed. Unnecessary or improper use, such as the use of unboiled water, unboiled bottles or incorrect dilution may present a health hazard. Social and financial implications, such as the preparation requirements and the cost of providing formula until 12 months of age, should be considered when choosing how to feed infants.

Our Baby Website mentions food, toddler milks and sometimes infant formula.

How Your Body Changes

So now you’ve confirmed that you’re pregnant, what can you expect next? Many changes are taking place, preparing you to carry your growing baby and give birth.

Your pregnant body

To see what’s happening inside you, and some tips for loving your mother-to-be-body, click on the hotspots in the diagram.


  • Good hair days : Your hair may be stronger, more beautiful and you may even notice it grows faster during pregnancy. Make the most of it!

    Some women may find that their hair texture changes and is more drier or oilier. Some may also experience hair loss during or after pregnancy but rest assured that this hair loss as a result of pregnancy will grow back.


  • Glow… or no : Some women glow. Others get dry or greasy skin. There’s no real rule. If you have dry skin, it may become more sensitive; greasy skin may break out. And as the hormone that regulates pigmentation increases, your skin will darken more quickly and brown spots could appear.
    • Keep your skin clean and moisturised.
    • Drink at least 2.3 litres of water a day.
    • Protect yourself against the sun and use sunscreen.


  • Up the cup : Your breasts may feel sensitive or even painful during your pregnancy – don’t worry, this is completely normal as the volume of your breasts doubles. Your nipples will also become harder and larger in preparation for breastfeeding. These changes are caused by the hormonal changes that come hand in hand with pregnancy, eg. oestrogeny.
    • Stretch marks are very common in pregnancy. They can affect one or multiple areas of your body. Gradual weight gain is your best chance of minimal stretching of the skin but unfortunately no guarantee. While there are many creams, oils and ointments out there that claim to help, there is no clear scientific evidence to support them. To help limit stretch marks, moisturise your breasts daily with creams based on sweet almond oil, wheat germ oil, etc.


  • Room in your womb : Your uterus will expand during your pregnancy to fit your baby. After the birth however, it will shrink to its former shape. As the uterus expands, it puts pressure on your bladder. You may need to urinate more often. If you feel a tugging feeling in the lower abdomen, don’t worry: it’s probably just the ligaments expanding. Later in your pregnancy, you may feel a little out of breath, constipated or queasy as your uterus presses against your lungs, intestines and other organs. If you have any concerns about any of these changes you should discuss it with your doctor.


  • The thin brown line : You may notice a brown line on your abdomen, between the navel and the pubic bone. Often called the pregnancy line, this is due to pregnancy hormones that can affect melanin levels (which affects skin colour) and tone. It will most likely disappear after your pregnancy as your hormones settle back down.


  • Childbearing hips : Toward the end of your pregnancy, your body releases a hormone to help your pelvis enlarge. As your ligaments stretch, you may feel pain in your lower abdomen or back and for some this can be the first sign of labour. If you are experiencing any discomfort that you are concerned about, always consult your doctor about it.
    • Try to rest.
    • Watch your posture – when sitting, sit well back in your chair to support yourself; wear comfortable footwear when standing.
