The Number One Reason to Switch to Natural Products While Pregnant

This post was developed in partnership with Tom’s of Maine. All opinions are my own.

I’ve talked many times before on my blog about our struggle to stay pregnant before our first daughter was born. It was around that time that I really became aware of everything I put into and on my body. My husband and I had seen all the specialists before finally going to see a naturopath. We started eating healthier, and we started choosing more natural products with less chemicals to use on our skin and in our home.

It became a top priority.

The Number One Reason To Switch To Natural Products While Pregnant

Did you know that babies are exposed to an average of 232 toxic chemicals while in the womb? 

Chemicals found in our deodorants, shampoos, makeup and other products that we use everyday find their way into our bloodstream and can pass onto our growing baby. I feel like today, more so than when we were first trying to get pregnant years ago, that people are becoming more conscious of what goes in our body and our skin. One of our favorite brands to use – Tom’s of Maine harnesses the power of nature for a more naturally effective way to care for yourself and your family.

Do you check the ingredient list for every product you bring into your home? 

The easiest way to start choosing more natural products is to start reading labels. Find products that have simple ingredients. Ingredients that you know what they are and what purpose they serve.  the best natural products while pregnant

It’s important to note that when you are switching to a natural personal care product for the first time, that you give your body some time to adjust. If your body is used to a conventional product, you might need a little time to adjust to a natural formula free of chemicals and artificial ingredients.
