Shea Butter may indeed be a pregnant woman's best friend for the following reasons:
For thousands of years women have covered their growing-baby-bellies with shea butter to improve elasticity thereby preventing stretch marks.
In Ghana, women going through labor and delivery often squat over basins with hot water and Shea Butter to ease labor pains. Some women also massage themselves with Shea Butter to prevent tearing and to prevent having a epiostomy.
NEW BORN BABIES
Mothers rub Shea Butter on thier newborn babies to protect them from the hot summer sun. They also rub Shea Butter on their babies after bathing to keep skin from drying.
