Hello

I am currently 9 weeks pregnant and have been searching the forums for ideas and recipes to help prevent/reduce the stretch marks that I am sure will occur.

From what I have read I should use LMC serum and Rosehip seed oil as well as Canvas cream mixed with shea butter, quercetin and centella asiatica.

Does this sound reasonable?  Too much?  Too little? 

Thanks for your help

Congratulations! 

I think the best thing to do is to stick with rosehip oil.   To add on collagen serum you would have to talk to your MD and get her/his permission. Same for the other suggested mix.

There is no information about potential effects of some botanical extracts on the fetus so I always prefer to stay on the safe side of any option.
