Amy Duggar Poses In Bathtub To Re-Create Popular Milk Bath Maternity Photoshoot

Amy Duggar King, cousin to the Duggar family is joining her more famous cousins in the Duggar baby boom of 2019. King is due in October with her first child, a son named Daxton with husband Dillon King. As she posted earlier this month, she's in the home stretch of her pregnancy. So she decided to commemorate her pregnancy with a maternity photoshoot. On her Instagram, she shared one of the pictures of herself in a milk bath.

In one of the shots from her maternity photoshoot, Amy is laying in a bathtub milk bath. She is looking down at her stomach and cradling her bump lovingly. She's wearing a black dress with a lace overlay, and her hair is braided. The milk bath is full of bright orange and yellow flowers and citrus slices. Adding pops of yellow and orange really stand out against her dark dress.

As maternity photoshoots continue to be popular, people are always looking for new ways to make them look beautiful and different. Milk bath maternity shoots have grown in popularity in the last year or so. The mother-to-be lays in a bathtub filled with watered down milk. Additionally, brightly colored flowers or even greenery and herbs are added to create a striking image. The milk makes the water opaque, which lends itself well if the mother wants to pose nude. But it also creates a whole ethereal, dream-like quality to the photos. Plus, laying in a bathtub full of milk isn't so bad for the skin either.

“Milk contains natural fats and proteins that can soothe and soften irritated skin,” Deanne Mraz Robinson, M.D., Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Yale New Haven Hospital tells What To Expect. “Furthermore, milk contains lactic acid, which is a gentle exfoliator," she adds.

But the milk bath photos aren't the only ones from her gorgeous maternity shoot. King shared another exclusive photo with PEOPLE. In the photo, she's standing in a field of sunflowers. She's wearing a flowy blue wrap dress that hugs her body and cradling her baby bump, a smile on her face. Her hair is down in this picture, which works well with the background.

It's not too much longer now, in an Instagram post she wrote that her due date is October 9th. "I have a feeling he might just come a little early.... praying my water doesn't break while I'm at the boutique!" she wrote.
