5. Lavender Oil


Lavender is widely known for its calming properties, whether dripped onto a tissue and inhaled or mixed into a glass of boiled water and left to steam.

Stock up on the biggest bottle you can find, and take a sniff during contractions or any moments of nervousness for an instant boost of reassurance and calm.

It might sound silly but it really works!
