The first trimester and the unwritten rule of pregnancy

If like me you ‘just knew’ you were pregnant, well before your missed period, it can be a long twelve weeks waiting for your first scan. I’d taken test after test, waiting for the second line to appear and watching it get darker with each test. We were excited, we wanted to tell the world.. but, WHAT IF?

The beautiful birth of Abigail

'Chris and I attended the Babies in Waiting course and cannot recommend it enough.

As a sufferer of anxiety, mainly health anxiety, labour has always been something I have had a phobia/fear of. I always knew I wanted children but felt scared of going through labour. Of course this fear was built up by society “horror stories” or the media; what I'd seen on T.V or films etc.

Babies in Waiting is simply the best!

  • Alt

Back in 2012 my sister told me she wanted to do hypnobirthing in preparation for the birth of my beautiful niece Ivy. She attended a private course with Jo from Babies in Waiting in Billericay and absolutely loved it.

‘Having a baby at home?!...that’s too risky!!’ I said. ‘No drugs...not even gas and air? You must be mad!! Have you not watched ‘One born every minute?!’ I said.

Well, when Ivy did finally arrive my sister absolutely bossed it, and I remember thinking...if there is a way to bring a baby in to the world, that is it!
