Itchy Skin During Pregnancy

The change in your hormone levels and the stretching of your skin can make you feel itchy during pregnancy. You will probably notice itchiness across your stomach and breasts – this is quite normal.

How can I soothe the itchiness?

Moisturise your skin well with unperfumed products – you may find due to the extra sensitivity of your skin, your usual products may cause you to be itchier than pre-pregnancy.

Avoid getting too hot as heat rashes can cause the itching to be worse. Wear loose clothing, stay indoors or in the shade if it’s too hot.
