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…

Babymoon in Hamburg

During my first pregnancy, my man and I had gone on a two week long baby moon to Tulum in Mexico. Friends and family had advised us to go on a last vacation, just the two of us, before the arrival of our baby. Looking back, we were so glad to have listened to them…

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.

Me, Myself & The Belly in Berlin

Just right on time for the third trimester I decided that it was the perfect moment to pack my things and leave my man and the little bird for a weekend. Both had been ill with the chicken pox and a harsh flu virus so once the sick times were over I felt quite exhausted and…

Feed the Skin: Anti-Stretch Mark Oils

  I don’t get a lot of me-time during this second pregnancy. However, if there is one thing that I am really conscious about it’s that I try to take at least 5 minutes in the morning and in the evening to massage my belly. It may be just a short moment but following this…

My First Birth Story: The Aftermath

“You forget it all once the baby is born”. This phrase has always amazed me. It sounded so surreal that it made the whole childbirth thing in my eyes even more magical. I had heard of birth stories where everything had happened quite smoothly and then there were those stories that had a more traumatic…
