My daughter's due date was Mother's Day. Predictably, she dragged her heels and didn't finally put in an appearance til 10 days later and I was pretty miffed I'd have to wait a whole year for my first Mother's Day!
But to be honest, I think pregnant mammas deserve to be treated on Mother's Day. They should be pampered and spoiled, after all they've carrying a huge responsibility around in their tummies for 9 months.
But what gift can you by for a mum-to-be for Mother's Day? Well I've rounded up some fabulous treats to suit all budgets.
A positive birth.
I don't think a prospective dad could give any better gift than ensuring the mother of his child experiences a calm birth. Resolve to learn coping techniques along with her and be a rock of support when push comes to shove (pardon the pun).
The Calm Birth School offer an online antenatal hypnobirthing course which can be done together, from the comfort of your own home. Perfect for busy couples who struggle to find time to get to regular classes.
The classes are delivered in the form of videos direct to your inbox, and is backed up with supportive telecons and a private Facebook community of experts and peers to share any worries or concerns you have.
The aim of hypnobirthing is to allow you to fully understand your body and it's capabilities, have faith and trust in your own abilities and to arm you with deep relaxation techniques to help you stay calm and in control throughout pregnancy and birth.
