Prep Your Home for the Baby

Ask a mother about the best moment of her pregnancy and she would likely say “the moment I held my baby”. And why not? Nine months of pregnancy where you’ve gone through a gamut of life-altering emotions and experiences result in a new life that will be cherished and loved. These nine months are dedicated to a variety of actions and decisions related to health and wealth. From planning the maternity leave to preparing the hospital bag, you’ve done it all. But what about when the new-born comes home? It’s a well-known fact that the arrival of a new-born signals the beginning of a new life where all those involved will be busy adjusting to a new routine. Wouldn’t’ it be a good idea then, to use the last two months of your pregnancy to make preparations that would smoothen the transition from being pregnant to being a parent. Inner...

Plan your maternity leave

Plan your maternity leave

Maternity leave - a period of absence from work granted to a mother before and after the birth of her child. (dictionary) As a working woman gearing up for motherhood, maternity leave is a phase to look forward to.

How to buy a nursing bra

Exciting, empowering and enriching are just some of the words used to describe pregnancy. But the changes that a woman’s body goes through during these nine months is a different story all together. Nausea, cravings, back pains and fluctuating moods along with physical changes are just a few of the things pregnant women deal with. To be worn during and after pregnancy, a maternity bra is a more comfortable version of a conventional bra. Made of stretchy fabrics, most maternity bras have broader adjustable shoulder straps, wider back straps and come equipped with up to four hooks to accommodate the changing cup size.

Body care during pregnancy

Body care during pregnancy

One of the main concerns of pregnant women face is the constant struggle to keep up with changes. From the daily routine to food habits and physical changes, there is something new happening every single day.  The whole nine months stretch seems like a very long time to not be in control of your body or not be able to understand the changes it is going through. Your tastes change making you constantly unsure of what type of food you will like and what will make you dash to the sink. Activities that you thought were normal, that you didn’t even consider to be activities, will now seem like really large tasks that you are not confident you can do anymore. Simple things like your morning yoga routine or your walk will have to be put off because you don’t know how your body will react. And this uncertainty can...
