Safety Tips For Moving While Pregnant

Moving isn't ideal when a baby is on the way. Pregnancy's physical and emotional demands, as well as nausea and severe fatigue, can make the entire relocating process more difficult and can complicate the whole moving process. Although it won't be a walk in the park, fret not! It doesn't have to be that difficult to relocate when pregnant. Read on for some professional advice on how to make packing and moving as a pregnant woman more manageable.

Make a plan

It is critical to plan your move ahead of time in order to execute it as smoothly as possible, especially if you are pregnant. You want to keep stress to a minimum during pregnancy since it can harm your kid. So, start by creating a moving checklist and make a list of everything you need to accomplish, including medical appointments, parenting classes, and hiring Singapore movers. This will assist you in organizing and preparing for your entire move.

Speak to your doctor

Make sure you talk to your doctor about your move before you start planning it. If it is safe for you to participate in the moving process, your doctor can advise you. Pregnant women should not lift anything heavier than 18 pounds, and 13 pounds if they are more than 20 weeks pregnant.

If you're relocating to a new city, you'll need to find a new doctor as well. Start by looking up local hospitals and doctors, or ask your existing physician for advice. Make an appointment as soon as you can once you've found a new one.

Take all the help you can get

When moving out while pregnant, it is very important to call your family and your friends and ask for their support since lifting big moving boxes when pregnant is not a good idea. Involve your closest friends and family members in duties like packing, cleaning, and clearing your previous residence. Hire experienced packers to assist you if it is within your moving budget.

Hire Singapore movers to help you

Never be too stubborn about moving on your own. If you feel that the stress would be too much, create a delivery request on Wise Move and let our movers Singapore handle the whole relocation process. Wise Move is a one-stop marketplace for your moving needs that lets you reach different moving professionals. Following the submission of your delivery request, Wise Move will then contact reputable Singapore movers on your behalf. Once you've decided on a moving company, set a reasonable date that will allow you to partake in this move.

Take a break

It is both emotionally and physically exhausting to move while pregnant. As a result, pay attention to your body and take care of yourself while you're moving. To avoid swelling in your legs and feet, take frequent breaks by sitting and raising your feet. Items weighing more than 15 pounds should not be lifted. Remember to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water or fruit juices. Get adequate sleep every night, at least 8-9 hours, and take relaxing walks.

Linda was very accommodating to my requests, and prompt in the booking confirmation. She was also super responsive to my texts. The movers team was brilliant, they were prompt and professional in their moving. Our belongings were wrapped up well in shrink wraps and transported carefully to the next locations. The movers team was also very friendly and accommodating to our requests. We appreciate their hard work and sweat when moving our things! Thank you Linda and movers team!

I don't normally write reviews but they impressed me on the following: Came earlier than expected. Took care when moving things. Also did exceptionally fast given only 1 main mover since the other was on MC leave at last minute. Communication on WhatsApp was smooth. Also the price was better than the other quotes. Extremely happy I hired them, and very grateful they worked so hard given how many boxes I had. I have recommended them to all my friends.

The movers were very good and communicative. They were thorough professionals and no complaints for the service at all. Even though there was a slight issue on the no. of truck loads required, the coordinator Linda was prompt enough to arrange for second day moving and managed efficiently to make the move seamless. Will definitely recommend to others and friends as well. Thank you!!
