3 WAYS TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR PREGNANCY JOURNEY AS A COUPLE
May 03, 2018
Up the spout? Bun in the oven? Or just plain preggers? No matter how you choose to say it, a pregnancy is one of the most fantastic, rewarding, petrifying, mind-boggling, exciting and nerve-wrecking times a couple will ever experience. The funny thing is that we often looking forward to the arrival of the baby to the point where we neglect to make the most of the pregnancy journey.
Here are a few ways to make the most of your pregnancy journey as a couple:
KEEP A BABY JOURNAL
From the moment your child is conceived, you become the custodian of their earliest memories. The childhood stories they will repeat over and over to friends and loved ones over the years to come will originate with you. Start keeping track of it before they’re even born by keeping a pregnancy journal. Mom-to-be can note down cravings, feelings and milestones (the first time I felt you kick, the first time I felt you hiccup), while her equally important partner can leave notes on doctor’s visits, shopping for baby’s room, etc. Add sonogram photos and other mementos to really make it special.
ENJOY PEACE OF MIND
If there is one thing that can ruin the joy of a pregnancy, it is the worry that something might happen to your baby during delivery that you may not be prepared for. The MiLittleLife Birth
benefit from MiWayLife
gives you peace of mind for your new-born. This cover provides between R20 000 and R180 000 cover for your new-born against some of the most common and severe childbirth complications, and automatically converts into a child benefit when the child is born.
DO A PREGNANCY SHOOT
A pregnancy shoot is one of the most magical ways to celebrate the journey from conception to birth. Depending on your personalities and preference, there are many different ways to go – super romantic somewhere in a forest; get silly and dress up as your favourite fictional characters; or go all-out and to a month-to-month stop-motion video like this one.
These are just a few of the ways in which you can celebrate your pregnancy as a couple. Keep an eye on the blog in coming weeks and months as we share more insight keeping the romance alive and growing as a couple throughout every phase of your life together.
