Buy things that can also be used after the baby is born
A good money-saving tip is to buy things that can be used not only during pregnancy, but also after the baby is born.
Pregnancy pillow and breastfeeding pillow in one
A pregnancy pillow acts as a support pillow during pregnancy, and can later be used as a breastfeeding pillow. If you have pelvic pain, you can benefit a lot from a pregnancy pillow. It supports your whole body and takes pressure off your back and lower back when you lie down. When you lie with a pillow between your knees, you avoid back strain, which also strains your pelvis. You may want to add a pillow to your back as well. A pregnancy pillow may be all you need to lie in a comfortable position and rest. Read more about the pillow here
Soft bra - comfortable during pregnancy and breastfeeding
A good comfortable nursing bra can also be used during pregnancy. A nursing bra is softer and more flexible than a normal bra. It is comfortable to wear and there are no underwires to press against the big belly. The flexible fabric supports and lifts the breast, but without creating pressure on the mammary glands.

2. Good saving tip: Buy used maternity clothes
Maternity clothes are an obvious choice for buying second-hand. It goes without saying that the clothes have only been worn for a short period - just as you yourself will only need them until the baby is born.
Your body changes continuously throughout pregnancy, so you will need new clothes several times. If you buy used maternity clothes, you get a lot of value for money. You can find used maternity clothes on dba.dk, Reshopper or various Facebook groups.
The savings tip saves you money - and recycling is good for the environment too. Win win!
