Becoming a mother is a beautiful, one-of-a-kind experience. But let's be real, it also comes with its own set of concerns. So, let’s talk about it! Here are some common concerns about motherhood and what you can do about it!
1. Clothes That Don’t Fit
We totally get it. Weight gain during pregnancy can be hard on your self-confidence and it’s super important to have clothes that fit you and make you feel good. Ruuji's full or 7/8 maternity leggings are stretchable and adjust to your belly size, both during pregnancy and after giving birth. No need to upsize!! Slip into these comfy leggings, and you'll feel like yourself again in no time.
2. Breastfeeding Discomfort
Remaining relaxed and being as comfy as you can is crucial when breastfeeding, but it can be uncomfortable at times. It can be difficult to find a place to feed the baby or find clothes that are comfortable and practical during this time. Ruuji's Maternity Mid-Support or Light-Support Sports Bra offers great support and prioritizes comfort and accessibility. The moisture-wicking material keeps you dry and worry-free with convenient zippers for easy feeding too!
3. Inability to Exercise
Here's the truth: You absolutely can exercise during pregnancy! Though we recommend low-impact exercises like gentle yoga can do wonders for your body and mind. Here are a few suggestions:
Walking: Sometimes, the simplest activities are the best. Taking a daily walk can help you stay active without too much strain on your body. Plus, it's a great way to get some fresh air and connect with your baby.
Swimming: Swimming is particularly good exercise during pregnancy! The water can help support the extra weight on your belly which can be a huge relief, especially in the third trimester. And unlike other aerobic exercises, swimming helps to cool you down which is great if you are having trouble regulating your temperature.
Light Yoga: Light yoga not only helps you stay active but also eases those pregnancy aches and pains with light stretching. Finding your zen in a good yoga class can help calm the mind of all the emotions of pregnancy while keeping your body moving.
