2. Eat well

It’s important to eat right when you are near the end of your pregnancy. Fill up on those veggies, whole grains, salmons and nuts.

3. Try yoga

This will help with your deep breaths and you’re staying focused and relaxed when the D-day comes. The meditation will help with easing the fear and anxiety you get from thinking about labour.

4. Pack your hospital bag

Have your hospital bag packed and ready to go. You can have it in the boot of your car since the fear that comes with “ my water just broke” can have you running around mind blank.

5. Be positive

Try to avoid the scary labour stories you hear from other mothers, it doesn’t help you one bit. Filter out the scary stories as you approach your due date, having a peaceful mind is very important.

 

You’ve got this, you’ll have your baby in your arms in no time.
