Third Trimester Must Haves

You're in the home stretch of your pregnancy and while those little kicks and growing curves are a beautiful reminder of the miracle you're carrying, the third trimester can also bring its own set of challenges. But have no fear! Armed with the right tools and tricks, you can navigate these final weeks with grace and comfort.

Many women describe the third trimester as the longest trimester because of the vast body changes resulting in getting more uncomfortable by the day. The good news is, you're almost there! These are the most common must-haves that my clients came back to tell me that they really did the trick in having the most enjoyable final trimester.


1. Comfy, Slip-In Shoes: 

Investing in a pair of comfortable, slip-on shoes is a game-changer during the third trimester. Think soft, supportive soles, wide toe boxes, and easy slip-on designs. As your body continues to adapt to the growing baby, you'll appreciate the ease of slipping into shoes that provide comfort and ease. Opt for sandals for warmer weather or cozy slippers for the colder months.

2. Raspberry Leaf Tea: 

This herbal refreshment might just become your new favorite brew. Raspberry leaf tea has long been celebrated for its uterine-toning properties. Sipping on this during the third trimester can help strengthen the uterus, potentially leading to more effective contractions during labor. Consider incorporating this natural remedy into your daily routine to support uterine health and prepare your body for the upcoming birthing experience, but remember to talk to your healthcare provider before adding any new herbs into your daily routine.



3. Drink Big:

Staying hydrated is paramount for your comfort and overall health during pregnancy. Invest in a generously sized water bottle to minimize the need for frequent refills. Adequate hydration aids in circulation, prevents swelling, and supports the amniotic fluid surrounding your baby. Make it a habit to carry your trusty water bottle wherever you go, and aim for eight glasses of water per day.

Formulated with calming herbs like black cohosh and raspberry leaf, it's believed to help your body prepare for and navigate labor more efficiently. Many women have found this tincture beneficial in facilitating a more comfortable birthing experience Again, consult your healthcare provider before giving it a try.



5. Dates: 

Who knew dates could be the secret weapon for a smoother delivery? Research suggests that consuming around 75 grams of dates daily in the final four weeks of pregnancy can lead to a shorter, less painful labor experience.
