Follow our little guide to Nessa's product and don't be afraid of the change, embrace it.
1. Stage 1: Pregnancy - Getting the mind and body ready to become a mom
When you enter this phase and for the first time especially you may not be aware of the importance of increasing time you dedicate to very specific self care. To prepare for birth, Nessa has imagined the Vagina Victory Oil. This collagen-boosting oil is charged in antioxidants, Vitamin E, mango butter and pomegranate oil to help restore elasticity, reduce hormonal dryness. You can use it for pre and postnatal perineal massage.
While you get closer to the due date, from 34 weeks you can start using the NESSA Crowning Glory Hair & Scalp Oil as a way to prevent the upcoming hair loss after birth. By keeping a scalp as healthy as possible before end you will be able to manage easier the hormonal changes and their effects. Apply 4-5 drops directly to the scalp, massage before shampooing.
2. Stage 2: Early Postpartum
So much is happening at that stage, the hormones are playing in full swing, the body is relieved from baby's weigh but still everything is already started to come back into place and that's A LOT.
That is why Nessa wants to offer you the best support you may need during these first days.
So, first things first: the Nipple SOS. You will see that you'll get very soon cracked nipples. This lanolin-free balm created to save both cracked nipples and sore baby bottoms will become your best ally. No need to worry about safety, it is 100% safe for both you and your baby so no need to remove it before feeding.
3. Stage 3: From Week 6 Postpartum
If you are a C-section soldier, the Nessa Scar Saviour is exactly what you'll need. It contains powerful anti-inflammatory ingredients, including turmeric, marshmallow root and vitamin E, to penetrate the skin and accelerate scar recovery. Scar Saviour can be used as soon as your C-section stitches have been removed. Gently apply this dreamy balm to your scar and massage 2-3 times a day.
Keep doing the perineal massages you started during pregnancy using the Vagina Victory Oil. You will realise as well that introducing the habit to use the Nessa Crowning Glory Hair Scalp Oil during pregnancy was a good idea to decrease the amount of hair loss. Continue all along the postpartum journey to apply it and don't only treat the scalp but also dry ends by applying 1-2 drops to palms and smooth over dry or wet hair starting at mid-shaft.
