Discomfort during pregnancy

Stretch marks

During pregnancy, stretch marks may appear, caused by the combination of hormone changes and the rapid expansion of the skin. They usually form on the belly, breasts, buttocks, hips and upper thighs. To minimize the risk of stretch marks, try to limit your weight gain and, beginning in your first month, apply a product specially formulated for pregnancy stretch marks: the sooner and more regularly preventive measures are taken, the more satisfactory the results will be. Be especially careful if the women in your family (your mother and sisters) got stretch marks during their pregnancies.
