There are some additional expenses that are difficult, if not impossible, to avoid during pregnancy. But today, just about everybody is looking to save money wherever they can. Here are a few suggestions for reducing these extra maternity costs:
If you know a friend or relative who was recently pregnant, find out if they have any maternity clothes they would like to pass on to you.
Mail order a multi month supply of your prenatal vitamins. This method of buying prescription medication is usually at a discount.
Buy empire-waist shirts that can be worn after pregnancy instead of maternity tops. Buy a pants-extending maternity accessory like the Bella Band in order to wear your pre-pregnancy pants longer. Shop consignment or thrift stores for maternity fashions. Purchase maternity items online. A lot of maternity items you find in stores can be found cheaper online. A great example is a nursing bra. You can try them on in the store to find the one you like best; then order it online, typically at a lower price.
