Genetics play a part, but the good news is there are natural ways to avoid stretch marks during pregnancy:

Stay hydrated - by drinking plenty of water, you will reduce the risk of stretch marks.

Massage with Vitamin E - by gently massaging the tummy with Vitamin E, you can help the skin to stay supple throughout pregnancy.

Get plenty of sleep - like many health concerns, getting adequate sleep plays a factor in skin health too. Aim for 8 hours a night minimum.

Keep your skin moisturised - coco butter can work wonders for keeping stretch marks at bay.

I hate to be a downer Sarah, but there is nothing that can help avoid or banish stretch marks completely. I have that on good authority. It's largely genetic.
