  • They are hereditary, and can not be prevented. You either get them, or you do not. The vitamin E oil works great for treating and minimizing scarring though :)

  • oh and my mom never had stretchmarks either and was a twig. i had one kid.. no stretch marks.. my second (3months old) now i have them... so mom's aren't always the deciding gene.
