(1) Wear elastic bras
Pregnancy will gradually expand the breasts. At this time, some pregnant women wear very tight bras. They want to limit the expansion of the breasts and prevent breast morphological changes. This method not only fails to make the breasts grow normally, but also brings trouble to the health of pregnant women; if the bra is not worn at all, the breasts will sag and make the shape unsightly. Therefore, you should wear a bra that is tight and appropriate, which does not restrict the normal development of the breasts, so as to facilitate breastfeeding after delivery, but also to keep the breasts from sagging and maintain the image of the breasts.
(2) massage nipples
Apply massage oil or cream on the nipples and breasts, and massage gently to thicken and soften the nipple epidermis, make the breast skin smooth, and help promote the development and maturity of breast ducts. After massage, wash off the massage cream and oil, and then apply moisturizer on the nipple and breast skin.
(3) Prevent the appearance of large and small breasts
During pregnancy, due to the increase in estrogen, the ducts of the breast are proliferated, blood supply is increased, fat is deposited, and the volume and weight of the breast are increased at this time. At this time, when sleeping, do not try to keep the side fixed as often as possible, and sleep on both sides evenly to prevent the breasts from becoming larger and smaller. Can also properly massage the small side of the breast.
(4) Less irritation to the nipple
The nipples are rich in nerve distribution and are more sensitive during pregnancy. Therefore, the nipples are less stimulated during pregnancy to avoid stimulating their excessive growth. At the same time, it can avoid the contraction of the uterus and avoid miscarriage.
(5) Firm breasts
Due to fat deposition during pregnancy and enlargement of the breast, it is easy to cause sagging breasts after delivery. In order to reduce its sagging, you can do the pleura once a week during pregnancy, which is to spread the breast and pectoral muscles with a mask cream to increase the contraction of the breasts and pectoral muscles.
After taking the above measures, it will be beneficial to maintain the beautiful shape of the breast and facilitate the nursing of the baby.
During pregnancy, teach you how to clean your breasts
(1) The sebaceous glands of pregnant women have strong secretions, and there are often pregnant scales and scalp skin on the nipples. Forcible removal can damage the epidermis. It should be coated with vegetable oil (sesame oil, peanut oil or soybean oil) first, and then softened and then removed.
(2) After 4 to 5 months of pregnancy, the nipple should be scrubbed with a towel and soapy water several times a day to increase its elasticity and thicken the epidermis, so that it can withstand sucking by the baby and reduce the occurrence of postpartum nipple cracking.
(3) After the inverted nipple is scrubbed and cleaned, use both hands to place the top and bottom or both sides of the nipple at the same time, and press down to make the nipple protrude. Those with short or flat nipples can squeeze the sides of the areola with the thumb and index finger, and gently pull the other hand from the root of the nipple. These are simple and easy correction methods, which can be performed 10 to 20 times a day, or even more. After a few months, the results can be seen.
Pregnant mommy, breast care is important
From the 37th week of pregnancy, breast care and massage can be performed. Massage the breasts to soften the breasts, make the ductal glands unblocked, and the milk secretion to be strong. Stimulating the nipples and areola can make the skin of the nipples strong, and it will be easier for babies to suck in the future.
Massage around the nipples
Cover your breasts with one hand in the opposite direction. Use the palm of your other hand (the part of the abdomen below the thumb) to press against the edge of the breast, with your elbows slowly resting on your shoulders, and massage gently from the outside to the inside.
Use one hand to support the breast from below to outside. Use the little finger of the other hand to support the outside of the palm that supports the breast, move the elbow with the shoulder as the center, and massage the breast from obliquely downward.
Hold your breast against the breast with one palm in the opposite direction. Use the palm of the other hand to stick to the back of the one-handed hand that is against the breast, and the little finger is located directly below the breast. The little finger applies force to lift the breast up and massage from bottom to top.
Breast stimulation can reduce late pregnancy
Before the last few weeks of pregnancy, just before childbirth, if pregnant mothers can consciously stimulate the breasts, it can reduce the incidence of late pregnancy. This conclusion was obtained after passing clinical trials: 200 pregnant women at 39 weeks of pregnancy were divided into two groups of 100 each, one of which used fingers to stimulate their breasts, areola, and other parts of the breast from 39 weeks of pregnancy Left and right breasts are stimulated alternately every 15 minutes for a total of 1 hour, 3 times a day. The other group of pregnant mothers did not perform breast stimulation as a control group. The results showed that at 42 weeks of gestation, the rate of expired pregnancy in the former group was 5%, compared with 17% in the control group.
Stimulate Nipples for Favorable Production
Breast stimulation also has the effect of shortening the delivery process, and this effect is related to the length of time to stimulate the nipple. Clinical observations show that the average time for pregnant mothers who stimulate their nipples for more than 3 hours per day is 4.6 days from the start of their stimulation to the delivery of their babies, and 8.5 days for those who stimulate less than 3 hours per day.
