Becoming A Birth Doula

Do you know this feeling ? One day you play with an idea but abandon it due to obstacles that seem insurmountable at that time. Then at a different time, you suddenly find yourself pursuing this exact idea or a different version of it ? This is what’s happening to me right now. There was…

About Taking Time

I hope you don’t mind that it’s been a little bit silently here on the blog. Settling in as a family of four and enjoying these precious moments has taken all my time…well, and then there was also our move to Panama; but that is another story (more to come soon)! Although I love writing…

Carry Them Close: About Babywearing

  When I had the little bird I hadn’t looked into the different possibilities on how I could wear my baby. I had received a baby carrier as a hand me down and hadn’t checked how to use it until I realised that my baby liked to be carried around.  The carrier turned out to…

That Shoot For Two

Just a couple of days before our little Miz arrived I was contacted by photographer Libia Arteaga for a pregnancy shoot. I had already done a photo shoot during my first pregnancy so I had not intended to do one again this time around. I just thought the fact that my baby bump had been captured already once…

My Second Pregnancy: The Third Trimester

I know that at this stage I should maybe write about a different topic. Those who follow me on Instagram may know that a lot has changed in the past months. That said, I just feel the need to finish the whole pregnancy story ( it may be my German is or my Virgo sign ?)…

…And Then We Were Four!

On Friday, May 27th early in the morning our little Miz was born safe and peacefully in our home. What had taken almost forty weeks to build up suddenly became reality: we became a family of four! Since then, we’re getting to know each other and are taking it really slow. Hence, the silence here…

Pregnancy Style: Indigo Blue is the Warmest Colour

Lets be honest: a lot of pregnancy clothing comes in the colour black, making it classic and versatile; just easy to combine. I’ve been wearing lots of it and focused on feeling comfortable. With the belly becoming bigger and bigger and my body accommodating more and more weight, finding the right amount of comfort was…

Why I Choose Hypnobirthing

When I was pregnant with the little bird, I had booked a birth preparation class for my man and myself. I was not so much looking for information regarding the pregnancy (it’s all on the web, right ?) but wanted us to take this as an opportunity to get together into the whole “pregnancy/baby/birth/postpartum“ groove. For…

Pregnancy Yoga

  At the begging of my first pregnancy, I was not really looking for a special pregnancy sport class. On the one hand, I did not feel the need and on the other side, the idea of being in a room with pregnant women only, well…it kind of put me off. Instead, I started from early…
