Pregnancy is different for all of us. Whether you’re the type to glide through pregnancy like a glowing goddess or more of the waddle-your-sweaty-way-through and wonder how you can possibly get any larger type, one thing is for certain: all pregnancies are incredible.
But as incredible as the experience of pregnancy is, we get that it may not always feel that incredible. Whether it’s a diagnosis you weren’t expecting, pregnancy after loss, or just feeling like you’ve been totally blindsided by how exhausting that first trimester can be (#thestruggleisreal), we understand that pregnancy can be hard.
Which is exactly why Truly Mama is here to help you navigate everything from your first trimester to your delivery to the fourth trimester of postpartum.
We’ll guide you through budgeting and prep for the newest addition to your family. We’ll answer your questions and have some laughs along the way. Because really, if you can’t laugh at some of the weirdness of having another human being exit your body, what can you laugh at?
We’ll be with you through the odd cravings, the morning sickness that happens in the afternoon, and that sudden aversion to your own partner’s smell. And regardless of what your experience is like, we’ll also be here, cheering you on and reminding you that you are beautiful, no matter what.
Here’s what you can expect from Truly Mama as we help you walk through pregnancy:
Although everyone’s pregnancy journey is different, we’ve put together some handy guides to get you through each week until baby arrives. We’ll help you prepare for breastfeeding, bottle feeding, pumping, and even feeding yourself – because sorry, mama, pickles with hot sauce is not always a full meal. And when you’re ready, we’ll help you decorate your nursery, pick out a crib, and remind you to take time out for yourself. You deserve it.
