Congratulations Mama, you made it! Your little bundle of joy is finally in your arms and although your pregnancy is over, the fourth trimester is all about bonding with your new baby and caring for your post-pregnancy body. Our baby and breastfeeding safe products will help keep Mama skin hydrated, protected and supported from top-to-toe.

From nipple creams to soothe sore nipples and boobs to nourishing body creams We have created your ultimate guide to skincare in the fourth trimester...

What is the fourth trimester of pregnancy?

Welcome to mamahood, mama! Although you have given birth and you're at the end of your pregnancy journey, the fourth trimester can be described as the transitional period between birth and the first 12 weeks after delivery.

At this stage, you're adjusting to life with your new baby whilst your baby is adapting to the brand new world around them. Although there's lots to be celebrated (goodbye late night kicks) the fourth trimester can be emotionally and physically challenging as it is a huge period of adaptation and changes for both the parents and the baby.

It's no doubt that the first 12 weeks of your baby's life will be a whirlwind, but together you and your baby can navigate this unfamiliar territory together. In addition to postpartum pain, fluctuating hormones, breastfeeding challenges and those never ending hungry cries, we know that your post-pregnancy body has changed and your skin could be feeling a little dry and dehydrated. So, make sure your skin is nourished, protected and supported with our post-pregnancy bodycare heroes and gift sets for Mama. Don't forget to give baby's skin some tender loving care too with our paediatrician-approved NEW baby skincare range Mini Mio.
