Preparing for Birth & Baby Mini Series: pregnancy, baby's room, sibling, mental and physical preparation.

Welcome back for Mum Talk mini series, all about preparing for a baby! If you are just tuning in for this mini series, we are personally preparing to welcome baby number two in around 5 weeks which is very exciting but also daunting as I realise I have forgotten everything!

In this weeks episode I share with you how pregnancy is going, my goodness is it different to pregnancy with my first. I also share with you my most recent midwife visit which included our birth chat, a few sneaky wobbles about having a home birth, preparing the baby room, preparing Amandine for the arrival of her baby brother and what I am doing mentally and physically at this moment to prepare for birth. 

For this weeks podcast, which I will do every week I also asked our listeners over on @mumtalkpodcast instagram for their insight into all the topics above, I share their answers so we can combine all knowledge and you can pick and choose what sounds right for you. I will note here there were some wonderful book suggestions for sibling preparation for number two, these were:

The Tale of me and the new baby

What about me 

I'm a big brother/sister

I also mention an instagram page which is absolutely worth looking at as they share some brilliant ideas and thoughts: Big Little Feelings. 

If you are not yet following @mumtalkpodcast on instagram, make sure you are! I will be sharing how I make padsicles over the next few weeks and will also be sharing lots about preparing over there!

Next week I am back and will be sharing what to expect in the early days (once I have reminded myself, listening back to my early podcasts!), baby essentials (again sharing listeners we all have different opinions on what is essential), hospital bag, sleep, travel, getting out and about and I am sure as always a lot more!

Please if you have a moment do leave a review, it really helps other mums to find the podcast and hopefully feel supported by our wonderful community.

Love Emma xx
