From the moment you first decide you are ready to have a baby, you have to start making decisions and asking questions:
- What should I do to get my body ready for pregnancy?
- Which conception tips really work?
- What are the early pregnancy signs and symptoms?
- How can I make sure I have a healthy pregnancy?
- Which birthing classes are right for me?

- Will we make good parents?
Just to name a few…
Starting a family is the most exciting, rewarding and nerve-racking period of anyone’s lifetime. It’s also a time when you have a million questions and everyone seems to have answers and advice – much of it conflicting!
Having a Baby is so Confusing!
And this is one thing you don’t want to get wrong: you have a tiny life in your hands!
New parents put so much pressure on themselves to get pregnancy and parenting right, but what is RIGHT? The good news is, we’re not here to lecture you on what’s right or wrong – just to point you in the direction of some good advice to help you make your own decisions.
So who are we and what makes us experts regarding pregnancy?
We are a team of mothers who decided to start this blog to ‘get real’ about pregnancy and childbirth and share our experiences and knowledge about each stage of pregnancy and through the first years of parenthood. Our goal is to create the very best website for pregnancy and maternity to help new parents sift through all the information and advice and make decisions that are right for them.
We decided to start this little project at our coffee group when we were talking about how hard it was for each of us to make decisions and navigate our way through the different stages of pregnancy week by week. We all agreed that listening to your mother in law can be a real drag at times!
And so, an idea was born:
A Comprehensive Pregnancy Guide Online!
Don’t get us wrong, we’re not doctors or scientists – just real women with real babies. And we’re not claiming to have all the answers – just practical ideas and advice from a range of different viewpoints.
Each of us has been on a journey and created our own path from those first conversations when you’re thinking about having a baby, to those painstaking months of trying to get pregnant, to the first symptoms of very early pregnancy, to labor and delivery, to decisions about how to be a good parent. We want to share our journeys and help you find a path which works for you and your new family. We’ve tried to pack the site with useful information on everything pregnancy childbirth and maternity related, including:
- Advice about whether you’re ready to have a baby.
- Practical advice at each of the pregnancy stages
- Tips for getting pregnant
- Pregnancy information week by week
- Ideas, menus, and recipes for pregnancy healthy eating
- Advice and guidance for making your birth plan.
- Reviews of the best books on pregnancy and birth.
Maternity Fashion: Growing with Your Body
One of the things that women find hardest through the stages of pregnancy is finding clothes that fit and that they can feel beautiful and confident in. Because we know that one of the biggest challenges of pregnancy is how to get dressed in the morning, we’ve thrown in a bit of fashion advice on the best modern maternity clothes, including:
- Cute Dresses for maternity
- Fashionable Maternity work wear
- Flattering Maternity swimsuits
- Stunning Maternity formal wear
- The latest Maternity workout clothes
And much more!
When you look in the mirror you should feel beautiful and bountiful – you are carrying a new life inside you! Unfortunately, we know only too well that this is not the reality for far too many women. When we look in the mirror, we see our ballooning figure and not the miracle of life. To help stop this happening to you during your pregnancy, we’ve scoured the net for the best online maternity shopping. We offer advice and reviews on hundreds of fashion maternity clothing items, looks and styles.
What about after pregnancy?
That’s the best bit! You get to be parents! But it’s no walk in the park. So we won’t leave you high and dry after delivery. We have advice for the first weeks, months and years of your baby’s life and your journey as parents, including:
- Postpartum symptoms and complications.
- Diet and exercise after pregnancy.
- Effective parenting skills.
- Forming a positive parent-child bond.
Just to name a few!
Parenting is the biggest, most important job you’ll ever have and it’s full of challenges. Many young or new parents can end up constantly second-guessing themselves or feeling very isolated, thinking: am I the only one who finds it this hard?

We’re keen to offer practical parenting advice and some possible solutions to the parenting problems that everyone faces; from sleepless nights to the terrible twos!
