If the usual pregnancy woes aren't enough to deal with, changes to the body and hormone imbalances can wreck havoc on your skin. However, your usual skincare may not cut it, as many products are not recommended for use during pregnancy or breastfeeding. We also suggest consulting your midwife before trying out new products, but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice gorgeous skincare. Little Butterfly London have created a range designed entirely for new and expectant mothers, with some products you can share with baby too! Here are our top picks.
