Don’t Get Your Knickers In A Twist | A Post Partum Underwear Guide

Hi Lovelies!

Motherhood brings with it a lot of things you’ve never considered before, such as optimal underwear post birth. Sounds sexy right?

I have only had caesarean sections (C-sections) so this post will be from that point of view, although I’m sure the needs after a natural birth are similar (correct me if I’m wrong) so this may be helpful to all new Mama’s out there, not just post C-section.

RAINBOW BABY | THIRD TRIMESTER

Hi Lovelies!

Well! We made it! It’s true what they say that the third trimester seems like the longest, you’re tired, you don’t sleep well (uncomfortably large and peeing every hour) and it. just. can’t. end. soon. enough. But it’s totally worth every discomfort when you see that baby for the first time.  The first and second trimesters feel like a distant memory now!

Non-Maternity Items to Wear in Pregnancy

Hello Lovelies!

During my pregnancy with Bebe five years ago, there wasn’t as many fabulous maternity items available as there are now, and even less affordable options. These days there’s so many quality Australian maternity labels and boutiques such as MammaBelle, Blossom & Glow, Mumma Bear Nursing Wear and Bae. The Label. There’s also a huge range of fast fashion options via Asos, H&M, Kmart and Target to name a few.

While investing in certain maternity items such as quality jeans, dress/es and underwear/bras is essential, you don’t have to ONLY wear maternity items while pregnant. Depending on your size, shape and fit preference there are a lot of cuts and designs of non-maternity items that will see you through some or all of your pregnancy and beyond.

MAMA TIME | PREGNANT PAUSE WITH ENDOTA SPA

Hi Mamas!
Do you remember waaaay back in January when I asked “Are you always the last on your (giant) to-do list?” and promised monthly “MAMA TIME Posts (that) will be dedicated to showing you how and why to look after yourself. From pamper sessions, ideas on how to chill out, fun date ideas (with friends and/or partners) and more”? Well you’re totally forgiven if you don’t, because guess what… it didn’t happen! To be absolutely fair, I fell pregnant not long after and as you know it hasn’t been an easy ride since!

What’s In My Hospital Bag

Hello Lovelies!

Well the hospital bag is packed and ready for when Bub decides to arrive, so I’ve decided to give you a low down on what I’ve packed. This time it is a lot LESS than with Bebe, I know now what I’ll need and what I won’t PLUS I’ve packed the essentials in my hospital bag and extras in another bag that Hubby can bring up to the hospital if needed.

Pinterest Worthy Maternity Shoot

Hello Lovelies,

You may remember that we had an AH-MAZING maternity/family shoot with the super talented Kym Renay in July (see it here) and the photos were everything we could have hoped for and more. I did have a deep secret though, I was ALSO dreaming of ethereal Pinterest style maternity photos… but TWO maternity shoots?!?! That’s just crazy! Or is it?  Let the justifications begin…

Baby Sprinkle | High Tea

Hello Lovelies!

When I first told my besties that I was pregnant with our long awaited for rainbow baby, the first thing they asked was if they could plan my baby shower. Umm… but I already had one with Bebe?? Apparently these days you can have a baby shower with every baby, who knew!? I sure didn’t. I thought you had one with your first and that was it.
