Congratulations, you’re pregnant!

There could have been a long or short wait for you to hear these words, or it could have come as a total surprise. 

You may be feeling a lot of mixed emotions such as excitement and elation along with feeling fear, overwhelm and worry. You may have found your way to our pages because you have been told you are high risk, have had a previous baby that required care in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or Special Care Nursey (SCN) or you simply want more information.

We are here to help you.
All pregnancies and babies are unique and have their own path. Caring for your physical and mental health during your pregnancy, keeping your medical appointments and accepting support and help along the way can assist you in enjoying your pregnancy, even if it doesn’t go to plan.

Speak to your doctor and healthcare team about what you can and can’t do. They can help advise you on diet, exercise, rest, etc. Speak openly about every concern you have, you are not bothering them and your health and the health of your baby comes first.

Some helpful reminders to help your pregnancy include:

  • Maintaining a healthy diet. This may include supporting your pregnancy with a supplement such as Natalis.
  • Spending some time each day in natural sunlight, outdoors.
  • Getting plenty of rest.
  • Monitoring your baby’s movements as your pregnancy progresses.
  • Holding off any holiday or travel plans, especially as your pregnancy progresses into the later stages.

We are here to help! Many of our team have been right where you are and understand how frightening it can be to not have your pregnancy go as planned. We can be on this journey with you. Please reach out.
