Preparing for the arrival of your new prince or princess!

After nine months spent preparing for the birth of your new arrival, welcoming a new life into the world can naturally turn yours upside down! Make sure that you have everything on hand to ensure that you get to spend valuable time bonding with your new addition, rather than worrying about things you need!

Even during the most straightforward of labours, your body has to work extremely hard and will inevitable end up feeling a little tender and bruised. Homeopathic arnica* has traditionally been used by some women to help with emotional shock and trauma such as exhaustion and also to aid recovery time.

You may also be suffering from low iron levels due to blood lost during the birth, making you feel short of much needed energy! Spatone Apple # combines the unique natural liquid iron supplement Spatone with added Vitamin C and is conveniently packaged in a ready to drink format. One sachet of Spatone Apple provides your recommended daily allowance (RDA) of absorbed iron and Vitamin C. Vitamin C is well recognised to increase iron absorption, contributing to a healthy immune and nervous system whilst the iron in Spatone Apple supports our energy metabolism, reducing tiredness and fatigue.

While all of that pushing can lead to the very welcome delivery of your new bundle of joy, it can also lead to a very unwelcome side effect. Piles. The increased pressure on your rectum during pregnancy, combined with pushing during labour can lead to piles developing after the birth of your child. To help ease the discomfort of piles, try Nelsons ® H+care Cream **##, which can help to alleviate discomfort. Made from a combination of four natural active plant extracts that have been specially chosen to help soothe and calm the sensitive skin area - Horse Chestnut for irritation, Peony for itching and Witch Hazel and Calendula to soothe.

We all know that time is precious as soon as we become parents and it is highly likely that our previous regimes may go out of the window, including our skincare routines. Cleansing wipes, such as Nelsons Pure & Clear ® Purifying Daily Facial Wipes, provide the perfect convenient solution to remove dirt and impurities in a few seconds to help maintain a blemish-free complexion. Time friendly wipes are the ideal essential when there just isn’t enough of it to indulge in your whole skincare range.

Time with your bouncing bundle of joy is certain to fly by. However, with teething sometimes starting as young as three months, you may have a teething tot on your hands before you know it. Nelsons ® Teetha Granules**, a homeopathic remedy, is specially formulated for the soothing and calming relief of the symptoms of teething. It is ready-dosed in a convenient granule format that simply dissolves in a baby’s mouth to help provide teething pain relief. Contains Chamomilla 6C.

From the makers of Nelsons® Teetha, Nelsons NEW Teetha Teething Gel is a homeopathic medicinal product used within the homeopathic tradition for the symptomatic relief of teething pain and the symptoms associated with teething, which are sore and tender gums, flushed cheeks and dribbling. From 3 months plus.
