When you’re pregnant, your body temperature is generally a little higher than normal due to hormonal changes, increased blood flow, and the heat produced by the placenta. So being pregnant during the summer months can make life even more difficult. We know that a lot of women are struggling with this and that’s why we want to help ease the discomfort! Below, we have put together 8 useful tips on how to cope with a summer pregnancy.

Spring is finally here and the sun is out! However, as much as we enjoy being in the sun, sometimes it can get too warm so –up- under that umbrella. One question though, can an umbrella protect us from UV radiation?
Not true. Clothing hinders some of the UV radiation. But, by how much? This depends on the thickness and structure of the fabric of your clothes. However, it is important to note that you can still burn through your clothes. A dry white T-shirt offers merely a protection of SPF 15. This is too little protection if your child is outside all day.
Despite the fact that UV radiation is one of the biggest enemies for people with dry skin and those that struggle with wrinkle formation, most people still do not sufficiently protect themselves from the sun. During summer, we immediately start applying sunscreen. But is it really necessary to apply sunscreen every day? Even if the sun does not shine? Here’s what our dermatologist, Elian Brenninkmeijer, has to say.
What is a protection factor? And is it true that the higher protection factor means you can stay in the sun for longer? We will discuss this below.
Even without burning, UV radiation can increase a risk of skin cancer. So keep applying sunscreen! Do not only apply it on yourself, but also to your child from head to toe before going outside even if the sun does not shine.
Your skin and that of your child can be protected in many ways against the harmful radiation from the sun. According to KWF Kankerbestrijding, it is vital to apply sunscreen, wear clothes to protect your skin, and avoid direct sunlight. It is also important to choose a good sunscreen for you and your child. But, how can you do this? You can read this blog to find out.
