Sheet masks

What’s your biggest fear during pregnancy?

That your baby might not be healthy? That you might not be a good mum? The existential dread about what kind of world you’re popping your progeny into?

No, silly. It’s stretch marks. Lol.

Joking aside, while stretch marks are an almost inevitable side effect of pregnancy, we are fully behind the ‘belly masks’ that have just come onto the market.

Because anything that encourages a little self-care is good.

They’re from Hatch Mama, the forward thinking maternity clothing makers, and are just like the Korean facemasks everyone has gone wild for. Minus the holes for your eyes and mouth, of course, although there is a hole for your tummy button. Cute.

They are made with aloe vera and propolis, a mixture produced by bees often called “bee glue.” The mask promises to soothe and reduce inflammation and heal and rebuild damaged skin cells, and they’re suitable for post C-section tums too.

Plus they say that they’ll reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

Ariane Goldman, founder of Hatch Mama, said: “Pregnancy beauty should be celebrated, and it hasn’t been for so long because your body’s growing and changing.

“Finally, in today’s world, I think the body changing and getting bigger and any shape and size that you are is actually being recognised.”

They’re £8 and currently only available on the Hatch Mama website.

While you’re there you could also treat yourself to some of their tummy tattoos. Not even kidding.
