“My Pregnancy series” I will be interviewing different mums-to-be as we follow their personal journey though pregnancy and motherhood. This series is aimed at educating, encouraging, uplifting and empowering pregnant women. I loved reading real life stories while I was pregnant with my first child in 2014. I found it so empowering and informing. It made my crazy symptoms feel normal and I could relate to other women experiencing similar symptoms. The series will focus on first time and second time moms;how they found out they were expecting,different trimesters and symptoms with beautiful growing belly pictures. Lots of interviews,informative articles and advice from experts in the field.
