Do you want to have the best pregnancy, birth and parenting experience possible, but you’re feeling overwhelmed?
You want to make your pregnancy and birth decisions from a place of calm and confidence?
You want to ‘Mom’ like you were born for it?
You’ve come to the right place!
This site is for you if you need to get the right information to make good choices for yourself and your baby.
Because pregnancy, birth and mothering are vulnerable, but powerful times in our lives.
When I was pregnant for the 1st time I was quietly freaking out. There were just so many unknowns.
I didn’t know which multivitamins to take.
I didn’t know which tests I should accept and which ones I should decline.
I didn’t know what to do to help my many pregnancy aches.
I thought birth was to be feared.
I didn’t know how to ‘snap back’ to my pre-pregnancy size.
I was clueless about how to cope with a fussing baby and sleep deprivation.
And potty training? Don’t even get me started!
But you know what? I figured it out and so can you.
Please don’t get me wrong I haven’t got every aspect of this Mom thing sorted out, I suspect I’ll need a few more decades for that.
But I’m here to share with you the things that have helped me out on this Mama journey so far.
So a little bit about me –
I’m Hayley, Mama of 2 little men, and wife to 1 bigger man.
I gave birth to my first baby Levi by emergency C-Section. The next few weeks that followed are a haze sleep deprivation, constantly fussing baby, breastfeeding problems, mastitis, breast abcess, more sleep deprivation and me crying more than I thought was physically possible.
I can say with 100% conviction that there isn’t anything that anyone could have told me that would have prepared me for the realities of being a new Mama.
When I gave birth to my 2nd baby Jack it couldn’t have been more different. He was born peacefully at home. When he slept 8 hours through that 1st night, me and Colin literally couldn’t believe it. The next few weeks were still challenging of course, but so much calmer than the 1st time round.
Going through these 2 very different experiences made me realise that there was so much power in my hands to mould the kind of pregnancy/birth/parenting experience I would have.
So are you ready to make the most of every part of this Mama journey?
Is it always going to be easy?
Is it going to be worth every moment?
