A baby is on the way: Many pregnant women reveal their sweet secret without words, because it shines from within.

There is nothing wrong with sunbathing for a short time when cream is applied with the appropriate sun protection. The sun is good for the vitamin D supply.

Folic acid is particularly important in the first few weeks of pregnancy for the development of the spinal cord, brain and nerve cells and the mother’s blood circulation.
Nothing stands in the way of a manicure during pregnancy. For many women, the icing on the cake of beautiful nails is the nail polish. It must cover strongly and evenly, have a nice shine and remain undamaged on the nail for as long as possible. A huge challenge that most nail polish manufacturers face with different substances, such as solvents. Some of these are suspected of causing allergies. In the meantime, however, there is a new awareness among manufacturers. The nail polishes from natural manufacturers are almost always “5-free”. If you want to be careful without having to completely do without polishing, you can use the free products.
