Hello, lovely expecting mommas in Peterborough! COVID-19 has changed our way of living and thinking. Pregnancy is a beautiful journey but Coronavirus outbreak has impacted the lives of pregnant mothers to a lot of extent. To all the expecting mothers, I would like to personally advise you to stay inside your house as much as possible. Only go out for essential shopping (if home delivery is not possible), gynaecologist clinic, and baby scan clinic. The less you go out, the better it is for you.
Since COVID-19 is such a big disaster, here’s a list of essentials that you must have in bulk during this pandemic outbreak.
Face Masks/Face Shields
Do not step outside your house without wearing a face mask or face shield. Ensure that you never run out of face masks. There are plenty of face masks to choose from – N5 respirator masks, surgical masks, homemade masks, activated carbon masks. Buy the ones you find the best.
Wear hand gloves while going outside for essential shopping and even while receiving any package from outside.
The virus can even enter through your eyes. So, it is highly recommended to wear safety glasses for ultimate protection.
Alcohol-Infused Hand Sanitizers
It’s not possible for everyone to wash hands all the time. Stock up on alcohol-infused hand sanitizers and use them whenever needed.
Disposable disinfecting wipes are very helpful while cleaning the surfaces and other essential items. Consider investing in them.
Emergency Medical Kit
Pregnancy can come up with a lot of health issues. Therefore, keep an emergency medical kit that contains scissors, a roll of cotton, bandages, antiseptic liquid, medicines, antiseptic cream, antacids, etc.
Since you’re spending more time inside your house, it’s smart to get a maternity pillow for yourself so that you get relief from neck pain and backaches.
