Practical Advice for First Time Moms and Dads as You Prepare for Baby

Click to Share!


You are having a baby.

Maybe you’re not having a baby…yet. You would like to have a baby and are thinking ahead, preparing for what will come. That is perfectly fine.

I always thought getting pregnant would be so simple, but it wasn’t for us. When I did get pregnant, I was unprepared. I had given up hope and had no idea what to do when I saw those two lines appear on the pregnancy test. Sure, I had books, but I hadn’t read them.

Did I have the right books?

We had just moved to the area. I had so many questions.

How do you find the best labor support team?

Scriptures for labor

What is this I hear about people eating their placentas?

What do I need to know about childbirth?

What do I do if I think I’m in labor and it’s not time yet?!

How do I know I’m really in labor?

What do I need to know about the first post-natal poop?!

I had so many questions and very few answers.

Maybe you’re in the same boat. Maybe you’re scared, nervous, excited, not sure what to expect, or overwhelmed with all the information out there. I’m here to answer any questions you may have, and even the ones you don’t have yet.

You are not alone in this. If you have questions that aren’t answered, let me know and we can chat!
