The journey to create made with love pregnancy journal

made with love is a dream I have had for many years, possibly as long as the little white book. I began my own fertility journey shortly after our wedding in 2016, recently sharing my four-year experience with hypothalamic amenorrhea. I have been working with midwives, mothers, and mothers-to-be to create what I hope will be a fundamental pregnancy companion.

Beginning your fertility and pregnancy journey with made with love will help you to navigate each aspect of trying to conceive, feel more in control, and prepare for pregnancy in every way: from your health to your daily lifestyle, and even your finances.

When you become pregnant, you move onto the main part of the book, which will be your weekly journal and record book, and ultimately, a keepsake of your pregnancy. Keeping a pregnancy journal can be incredibly beneficial, especially in the early months when you are experiencing so many new and unfamiliar feelings and thoughts. The structured checklists and antenatal pages will guide you through each pregnancy scan and midwife/LMC appointment, while the unique weekly journal prompts encourage you to reflect on your journey, and record each new experience. Each week guides you through questions about your body and your baby, with space for photos of your scans, your growing bump, or any other special memories. There are also dedicated pages for partners to make their own notes.

The concluding chapters of the book are for your birth plan, hospital and shopping checklists, and finally your post-birth records, reflections and postnatal appointments, as well as plenty of blank pages for you to continue your diary, or include your first new family photos.
