What an exciting time pregnancy
is! If this is your first baby, then you are probably thrilled,
scared, overwhelmed, and joyful all at the same time. No time is
more important in your child's life than from conception to weaning.
You have many decisions to make, and these decisions will profoundly
impact the rest of your child's life and your family as a whole.
It is mind-boggling to think of how your choices now will have a
rippling effect throughout your family line and through society
Your first priority has to shift to your baby. You owe it to this
child to take very good care of yourself. This is your first practice
at protecting and nurturing your child. Eat well, making sure to
eat a balanced diet of healthy food, increase your protein and water
intake, don't smoke, and don't drink alcohol. Reduce the amount
of caffeine you consume each day, making sure that you consider
the caffeine found in sodas, teas, and chocolate, as well as coffee.
Excellent prenatal care is the best health insurance for your baby.
Celebrate this glorious time in your life. Capture every memory.
Consider having professionally taken photographs of your pregnant
belly or make a belly cast.
Pregnant bellies are beautiful and should be seen. Natural Family
Boutique offers plenty of products to help create lasting memories
of this special time.
Pamper yourself! This is the time for self-indulgence. Our pregnancy
products were designed to help relieve your stress and make
this a time for pampering! Reward yourself for the hard work you
are doing to make a healthy baby. Take long soaks in the tub (but
not too hot!), have your husband give you massages, get your nails
done, sleep late, or whatever it is that you like to do to feel
pampered. Personal pampering time is a precious commodity after
the baby arrives.
Enjoy this part of parenthood! Your baby is only born once, so make
it the best start to your child's life.
