Everything you need to know about potty training your toddler, how to get started and make change-time easier!Read More
Welcome to your third trimester! Now that you’re counting the weeks (even days!) until the baby’s arrival it’s time to take care of a few things before that little one arrives.
Read below our suggestions for final preparations in your third trimester, and then use our Newborn Checklist to make sure you’ve got all the essentials on hand.
An important part of your preparation is making a birth plan with your midwife, obstetrician, doula or specialist doctor. The plan should describe your wishes for the labour, birth and any additional support you may require. A birth plan is also useful if your midwife can’t be with you during labour, as backup support will know what your wishes are.
Some things to consider when writing your plan:
If you’re a first time parent, you may like to take a newborn care class to run through the basics of caring for you and baby. Such as How to Change a Diaper, swaddling, soothing and feeding.
While the end of your pregnancy might feel like a long time coming, the final trimester will sneak up on you. You may like to organise a creative way to document your final stages of pregnancy, such as a maternity or family photoshoot, getting a cast taken of your bump, or creating a keepsake. Find more inspiration on our Pinterest board.
The third trimester of pregnancy can get pretty uncomfortable as your baby (and belly!) grows and as your body starts to prepare for childbirth. You may experience abdominal pain, lower back and hip pain, restless legs, even insomnia.
