Mother's Friend: There is a product called Mother's Friend that contains coconut and other emollients that can be massaged into the skin to decrease the appearance of stretch marks. Unfortunately, the marks will always be present, just less visible, as the cause was that elastic layer of the skin was broken during the pregnancy growth of the abdomen.
