  • That is a super idea! When we are waiting to give birth most women go through a nesting phase - just like a mamma bird gets her nest ready for her babies. So washing blankets and clothes will help you relax knowing you are doing all that you can do to prepare for your babies arrival - and keeps you busy too!!

  • Start now, sure!

    You can prepare for labor ( read, take a class, watch videos, hire birth doula).
    You can prepare for postpartum ( sign up for diaper service, go to La Leche meetings, stock the pantry with supplies, fill the freezer with easy meals, plan a Mother Blessingway)
    Write thank you notes.
    Make birth announcements.
    Pack for birth.
    Make a birth plan.

    that is a start~~~
