"Nesting plays a big part in how you mentally prepare for the arrival of your baby, and a lovely therapeutic way of spending newfound time indoors.
"Painting the nursery and planning all the finishing touches are great ways to help pass the lockdown days and keep your mental health in a good place. Crafting has been scientifically shown to help reduce stress, release tension and promote wellbeing, so find what hobby craft works for you."
Try home-based relaxation methods
Keep relaxed with mindfulness, pregnancy fitness classes or even yoga.
"Yoga can benefit pregnant women in lots of different ways. Staying active through light exercise does your body and baby good, "said an NCT spokeswoman. "Relax, sleep better, soothe aches and pains, and feel more positive."
Get some fresh air
"It may help to rid your mind of the term 'lockdown' and think of yourself in a protective bubble – you and your baby in your own safe little world."
"Try not to think about what you can do, rather than what you can't. For example, although you can't visit friends or go and sit in a coffee shop, you do have a lot of precious time to bond with your baby," added the Tommy's spokesman.
The charity advised women that it was important to take time to try and eat well, rest as much as possible and spend 30 minutes a day doing something for themselves, particularly after giving birth. This ranged from having a shower or reading a magazine to chatting with a friend.
Prepare By Shopping Online
With concerns over shopping closely near other people and using masks, shopping online can reduce the stress and anxieties involved with regular trips to the supermarket or shops.
Plan ahead and get everything you need for a hospital bag and the newborn so you don't feel the pressure ahead of the birth.
This can especially help abate your worries if shops are not stocking as much as usual due to the outbreak or you are concerned about having to join queues to shop instore.
