Must-have beauty essentials to keep you feeling pampered and healthy throughout your pregnancy

As well as having a maternity wardrobe that will keep you looking stylish throughout your pregnancy, pampering yourself and ensuring you stay healthy will also ensure you enjoy the nine moths.

Regular facials to help combat that problematic pregnancy skin, is one way to do this, while massages designed specially for pregnancy are a great way to relax.

However, if you're watching those pennies then there's a great range of pamper products and pregnancy essentials on the highstreet.

We've put together a little list of what we think should appear in every pregnant ladies bathroom and handbag.

Massage bar Therapy by Lush.
This little piece of loveliness has been designed specifically with expectant mums in mind.

It's a moisturising massage bar with cocoa and shea butters to make skin feel softer and improve elasticity, which is claimed to help reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars, as well as being an all round fabulous product to keep the whole body in tip top condition.

With a blend of organic sweet orange oil, lavender oil and neroli, Therapy is also 100 percent certified organic. £6.25 for 65g from Lush

A favourite with mums-to-be this miracle oil is designed to maximise the skin elasticity, helping to prevent the appearance of stretch marks common to over 75 percent of pregnancies.

It combines some of the most important skincare ingredients including vitamin A and E, essential oils, and unique revolutionary ingredient PurCellin Oil.

And it's a fave with celebrity mums  such as Tess Daly, Denise Van Outen and Kym Marsh.
Available on the highstreet at an RRP of £8.95 for 60ml.

Sea-Band Mama!
If like Kate Middleton you're suffering from extreme or even mild morning sickness - we know neither is nice - then why not try these bands, which are claimed to provide 75 percent of mums-to-be suffering with an all natural relief.

There's three unique products to choose from: an acupressure writstband, an essential oil ginger and spearmint rollete, and ginger and folic acid lozenges, offer a relief to suit everybody. Using natural remedies such as acupressure and essential oils help to gently alleviate feelings of nausea and block feelings of pain, allowing women to enjoy their pregnancy without worrying about affecting their unborn babies. The folic acid is also claimed to help prevent defects of the central nervous system of unborn babies.

Sea-Band Mama! wristbands, rollete and lozenges are available from, independent health food stores and pharmacies. Priced at £8.15 (wristband), £4.99 (10ml rollete) and £3.99 (20 lozenges).

Miaroma Lavender Pure Essential Oil.
This blended aromatherapy essential oil comforts and soothes the mind and body. With its sweet and floral aroma, this soothing lavender essential oil has been found to be beneficial in supporting relaxation and sleep.

This can be vital during pregnancy as anxiety, sickness, discomfort and a weakened bladder cause 80% of women to suffer with sleep disturbance or insomnia during pregnancy.
Miaroma Lavender Essential Oil is available from Holland & Barrett stores, £7.49 for 10ml
