  • Pregnancy Journal, Blush & Gold – capture the important details of your pregnancy to treasure forever https://blushandgold.co.uk/
  • Pregnancy leggings, Latched – this small business is my absolute favourite maternity sportswear brand. Super comfy leggings that grow with you through pregnancy and postnatal – I absolutely lived in mine! https://latched.uk/


Second trimester

  • Hypnobirthing Course, Rise & Glow Births – second trimester is a great time to start preparing for a positive birth and meeting other parents-to-be at our fun and relaxed antenatal classes https://www.riseandglowbirths.com/
  • Pregnancy pillow, Baby Bub – as bump gets bigger, a decent pregnancy pillow becomes essential for a good night’s sleep. This innovative compact design is great if you don’t have a lot of space https://www.babybub.com/
  • Ginger Switchel, Mother Root – when you fancy something that feels a little grown-up, try this fresh and fiery non-alcoholic sprit with soda water, ice and a slice of lemon https://www.motherroot.london/


Third trimester

  • Labour prep kit, My Expert Midwife – fabulous products to reduce your risk of tearing during birth, and help with postpartum healing https://myexpertmidwife.com/
  • Maternity photoshoot – a photoshoot in your third trimester with the right photographer will make you feel like a goddess!

Fourth trimester

  • Oscha sling – babywearing is an absolute gamechanger for soothing your little one, keeping them close, and helping them sleep. There are lots of carriers on the market, but there’s something magic absolute wrapping your bundle of joy in a beautiful snuggly woven wrap. Oschas Slings are based in Scotland and have the most amazing woven designs. I’ve worn my mine pretty much every day for a year for both my babies and I have really special memories of the bond we created in that sling https://oschaslings.com/
  • New Parents Box, Cook – what a great gift to have nutritious, delicious, hand-prepared food in the freezer ready to pop in the oven during that hectic newborn phase https://www.cookfood.net/menu/meal-boxes/new-parents
  • Postnatal doula – treat a newborn mama to a few visits from a postnatal doula. Emma (EmmaDoula) covers homes in South East London and can help with cooking and cleaning, supports you with caring for your newborn baby, and is a listening ear when you need https://www.emmadoula.co.uk/


All recommendations are my own, based on my experiences as a mum of two, and from working with hundreds of pregnant women - I'm not affiliated with any of the above 🙂
