The Honey Pot Co. On Pregnancy Feminine Care 101

August 10, 2020

You’ve just discovered that you’re expecting! A swath of emotions and thoughts flow through you as the idea of bringing a new bundle of joy into the world begins to settle in. One of the notions that doesn’t typically come to mind right off the bat is your feminine care routine. It’s okay to keep using the same products as before, right? Why would you need to update your feminine care during pregnancy?

Just like every other aspect of your life is about to change, so should your skincare and feminine care regimen. Pregnancy brings so many changes both internally and externally due to the flood of hormones that appear upon conception. One of the most common issues expectant women experience is frequent yeast or bacterial infections due to this abrupt change in hormone levels which can directly affect your pH balance. You will quickly realize that you’ll need to pay closer attention to your feminine hygiene than ever before if you want to keep your honeypot happy and healthy!   

 

We chatted with the Co-Founder of The Honey Pot.Co to get some tips and information to help guide you in creating a pregnancy-safe feminine care routine:

 

  • Seek out a lightweight, gentle cleansing wash that is free from parabens, sulfates, dyes and artificial fragrance. In addition to the major fluctuations that are occurring internally, you will want to ensure you are not introducing potentially harmful ingredients to your precious baby in utero.
  • Keep a pack of feminine wipes handy for those moments when you need to freshen up fast.
  • Avoid processed foods, sugar and fried foods as these can contribute to frequent yeast and bacterial infections.
  • Wear basic cotton underwear only and avoid thongs, g-strings and other tight undergarments as they can contribute to yeast and bacterial infections throughout your pregnancy.

 

 

 

Most importantly, you don't have to compromise to feel clean. The Honey Pot Co. Mommy-to-Be hygiene products include maternity sanitary pads and a feminine wash for pregnant women so you can balance your pH, banish bacteria, and calm discomfort, without worrying about chemicals, toxins or artificial fragrance that you want to avoid during pregnancy.

Powered by herbs and made with her needs in mind, Mommy-to-Be is a safe yet beautiful way to maintain one's feminine health and wellness during this unique time in a woman's life”

As you prepare to welcome your bundle of joy into the world, be sure to keep your honeypot healthy with these simple yet effective feminine care practices.
