Preparing for Parenting

By Sophie Fletcher

By Sophie Fletcher

This is all about preparation!  Get off on a strong foot in those early days. We are so focused on birth as a culture, when it's the beginning of a tough and wonderful journey. You can learn a lot practically and also about mindset before you have your baby so you are able to confidently do what is right for you and your little family in those first weeks. I recommend that you get these in the last days of pregnancy from 37 weeks onwards and start to create a pocket of maternal retreat, support and love for those first 12 weeks.
