I have stretch marks, can they be prevented?

Stretch marks are caused by the stretching of the skin due to the growth of the uterus and weight gain. They form reddish lines on the abdomen and breasts and fade after delivery to become whitish.

Unfortunately, nothing can prevent them effectively.

Practical advice:

  • Balanced weight gain
  • Proper hydration of the skin with a cream
