14 Pregnancy Holiday Essentials

July 08, 2015

From sunscreen to luggage, we’ve got you covered

 

You may think you’ve got holiday travelling down to a science. But you’re travelling for two now, so this list might be a little bit different.

 

Medicine bag

For your personal stash of pre-natal vitamins and morning sickness tablets, we reckon this Medpac medical bag will do the trick (£11.50, Amazon). Insulated and bright, it’s perfect for travelling or keeping at home.

 

Sunscreen

Most of you will be headed for sunnier climes soon but even if you’re planning a trip to Scotland, this is still a must. Try Garnier’s new Ambre Solaire Oil Sensitive Advance SPF50 (£7.50, Tesco). Hypoallergenic and dermatoligically tested, this will get the job done.

 

Camera

Capture beautiful bump-tastic moments you won’t want to forget with this stylish Coolpix S3700 digital Nikon camera (£98, Jessops). You can even share your images and videos via Wi-Fi. It’s the future…

 

Pashmina

Wrap up during your evening meander in this stunning Turquoise pashmina (£49.95, UK Pashmina). It’s a sumptuous mix of cashmere (70%) and silk (30%) perfect for those cool, summer nights.

 

Summer dress

Stay comfortable in the sun with this Maternity Off Shoulder Swing dress (£20, Asos). The bonus is it can be worn throughout all stages of pregnancy. SOLD! Check out more hot summer maternity looks on our blog.

 

Swimsuit

Get beach-ready in this Rhona Sutton swimsuit by Beautique (£35, Mothercare). Not only is it sexy, but it’s available in sizes 8 to 18. Six sizes fit all! Check out more fab swimsuits on our blog.

 

Sandals

Speaking of “beach-ready”, complete the look in these Ted Baker Verona sandals (£40, Office). We love the gold metal bow detail. (More gorgeous sandals on our blog.)

 

Sun hat

Another beach must-have is this Black Trim Braid Fedora hat from Accessorize (£19). It’ll shield your eyes from the sun while its grosgrain ribbon keeps the look chic.

 

Sunglasses

Need a pair to hide evidence of the restless night before? We’ve got our eyes on these cool Light Tortoiseshell Square sunglasses from Oliver Bonas (£18). (See what we did there?) Victoria Beckham-style meets high street-chic.

 

Small bag

Don’t take everything including the kitchen sink sightseeing with you on your hols. Instead, lighten the load with a petite bag perfect for the little essentials (lip balm, cash, hotel key, a pack of Skittles…). Try this adorable Jute cross-body bag from Mango (£14.99). The stripe detail is just too cute.

 

Baby mags

Keep up with all things pregnancy-related while you’re away with some top pregnancy mags. The latest issues of Baby London, Gurgle and Mother & Baby are perfect poolside reading material.

 

Maternal note

This is a little boring but essential, especially if you’re 28 weeks and onwards. Ask your GP/midwife for yours.

 

Secret Saviours

You simply can’t survive without our Anti Stretch Mark Pack — okay, we might be exaggerating here a tiny bit… The pack (£69.95) includes our patented band which, when worn with our Day Gel (also included), will help prevent stretch marks forming by 70% while keeping your bump fully supported and moisturised. The pack’s Night Cream further moisturises your skin but is great for the rest of your body too – and customers have told us it smells “divine”.

 

Luggage

Pack it all in this Biba Diamond Quilt hard suitcase from House Of Fraser (£126). It comes with an eight-wheel spinner construction for a smooth roll – not that you’ll be pushing it!
