We've rounded up the latest innovative products to help give you a hopefully hassle-free pregnancy, and help you adjust to your changing body.
From the latest app to track your growing baby's progress, to specially-designed fitness gear and products to help you sleep better, we've got it covered.

This belt helps you sleep in a better position by supporting your baby bump. The memory foam reinforcements fill the gap between the hips and mattress, so you can sleep more comfortably on your side. How clever is that?
It's made from 95% cotton, so it's breathable and comfy to sleep on. It stays in position all night, and follows your movements as you sleep.

4. Compression Socks, £9.95
*Socks which reduce swelling in lower legs, as often occurs during pregnancy
*Available in four sizes for a perfect fit
*Promote good circulation and features reinforced heels and non-slip cuffs
These soothing compression socks gently stretch to the contours of your feet, ankles and legs without constricting them, so they're ideal if you have swelling feet, ankles or legs during your pregnancy.
They reduce oedema by compressing the feet and ankles to boost circulation, with anti-odour and anti-static fabric stops the growth of bacteria and fungus.

*Fragrance-free, so it won't irritate delicate skin during pregnancy

During pregnancy your skin can become stretched and painful as your bump grows, so it's vital to use a soothing cream which will keep the skin soft and supple.
