Welcome to your pregnancy, a very special time in life.
For many, this is one of the most exciting times in their lives, when a completely new awareness of your body develops and you begin to realise what the human body is capable of. A new life is growing from within us! Wow! We would like to come along as you take this journey. We will give you to lots of tips and tricks, share testimonials, and recommend great products. As always, everything we do comes from the heart with a depth of knowledge, and through our claim to quality and sustainability.
We also have a clear advantage - we have been through this phase several times before! Because of this, we want to share our experiences with you. We will be sure to share not only the good, but also the bad. That's because both good things and bad things can happen, and they should all be shared.
And most importantly, remember that for us it's not about "one size fits all". Take from us what suits you and feels good. Leave out what doesn't suit you. In the end it's your body and your decision. You know yourself best and you know what is good for you.
The first few weeks of pregnancy can be really draining: incredible exhaustion, tender breasts, possibly also nausea, and the uncertainty of doing something wrong or the dread that something bad could happen. And that's not even mentioning the mood swings brought about by hormonal changes that, as the cliché goes, can really strike quickly.
All of this can be really overwhelming. Your most important task right now is to focus on doing what's right for you - and if that means leaving work early or canceling an appointment for the time being, then so be it! We recommend doing what is good for you and the tiny human being that is growing in your belly.
Nevertheless, you shouldn't wait too long on some things. We have summarized these for you here.
Foods & Vitamins in Your Pregnancy
You have a positive pregnancy test result, but still have to wait 1-2 weeks for an appointment at your gynecologist's office? We recommend familiarizing yourself on the basics of proper nutrition now. After all, you're not just feeding yourself now, but also your baby.
Recommendation from us: Marma
Our insider tip from the USA! Marma Health is a platform designed to support women and mothers with specific nutritional information for the childbearing years. The journey of fertility, pregnancy, and postpartum can be both beautiful and challenging, and nutrition plays a pivotal role in the health and well-being of both the mother and the growing baby. Sadly, studies indicate that most pregnant individuals suffer from nutritional deficiencies, which can lead to unpleasant symptoms and potential complications. Recognizing this alarming statistic, Marma has developed a platform that offers evidence-based guidance, personal support, and a wealth of resources to empower you on your path to optimal nutrition.
The mobile app provides personalized weekly content, direct 24/7 access to nutritionists, and soon-to-be-launched daily and weekly health insights.
We love it!
Midwifery knowledge arrived during the 21st century. This book leaves no stone unturned when it comes to the topics of pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum life with a baby.
Have you heard of the UMA App?
Self-determination, knowledge, and empathy are important to the team. In the UMA app you will find more in-depth knowledge about pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum.
Maternity- the transition from woman to mother!
This transition doesn't always happen automatically and can sometimes take time. The maternity period is a transitional phase. Unfortunately, the knowledge and social acceptance of this is still lacking in society today.
Childbirth is the most natural thing in the world, isn't it? Regardless of whether it's a C-section or a vaginal birth, we think that being well informed can help you to view birth in an easier and more relaxed way.
