Why plan at all..?

You are in your third trimester, no doubt getting tired easily, carrying around a bowling-ball-type weight, overthinking what’s to come, probably still commuting to work and endless emotions showing up for you.

You are probably also think you have enough on your plate without more prep, planning especially as your mind feels more focussed on the birth.

I promise you this though – spending some time to prep and plan will make those early weeks smoother for you and will put you in a good position for when your baby is here.

Acting re-actively, when your baby is home, will likely leave you feeling you won’t have the time or inclination to anything outside the newborn norms.

You’ll be on the back foot trying to find your way in the baby haze. Clarity is missing. Getting a straight answer from yourself is hard work.

Never underestimate what the lack of sleep can do.
