Summer pregnancy? This thermal water spray is the perfect way to keep cool

Melissa Carton

It’s no picnic being pregnant during the summer.

Even the mild Irish summer can be a challenge during pregnancy and no one knows that better than myself. Even on overcast days, the humidity can be unbearable when you’re expecting.

My daughter is a September baby which meant my third trimester was all during the hottest part of the summer. I was constantly overheating and even fainted one-day queuing in a shop.

I always had water on hand but on the warmest days, it just wasn’t enough which is why I started to carry around a bottle of thermal water spray.

There are many thermal water sprays on the market but the Avène brand has long been a favourite with Irish women.

Avène Thermal Spring Water is naturally soothing, anti-irritating and is rich in components particularly recommended for the most sensitive skin.

The multi-use product is fantastic at keeping you feeling cool and hydrated and so handy for throwing in your handbag.

I would highly recommend sticking it into your labour bag too as maternity hospital rooms are often very warm.

Even after you’ve had your baby Avène’s thermal spray can still come in handy as it is a great way of soothing nappy rash.

It really is a one-stop shop when it comes to must-have products for mums.
