39 Weeks – Toddler prep and what I’m up to

Little video of what I’m up to 39 weeks pregnant and the things we are doing to prepare our toddler for the new baby’s arrival. Here are the books I mention in the video:

There’s A House Inside My Mummy

Gorgeous book that we have been reading since Christmas. Here’s Jasper getting to grips with the info!

Lulu and the Noisy Baby


Jasper absolutely loves lift the flap books so this one is a real hit. I like the fact it talks about granny coming to look after Lulu while mummy and daddy go off to have the baby and then how Lulu can help look after the new baby.

Why Hypnobirthing Matters

I highly recommend reading this informative and inspiring book. Katrina Berry is a hypnotherapist, doula and hypnobirthing teacher and her book outlines what hypnobirthing is and why it matters for mums-to-be, their partners and their midwives.

Covering a brief history of hypnobirthing, a thorough explanation of hypnotherapy, the birthing body and what you can expect from practising the techniques of hypnobirthing. She includes a fantastic chapter entitled ‘When things don’t go according to plan’ and how preparing both your mind and body can allow you to feel calm and in control even where special medical circumstances arise.

Why Hypnobirthing Matters

Packed full of real-life first person accounts from mothers, fathers and midwives this book offers the reader a real sense of how birth can and should be an empowering and life enhancing experience.

This little book (you could easily read it in a couple of hours) explains what to expect from hypnobirthing rather than teaching specific techniques so sits very nicely alongside actually taking a hypnobirthing course.

See you at 40 weeks – maybe!
