#ImMe … Same, Same But Different

To let the cat out of the bag as we say in German when someone wants to express transparency and say the truth, I’d like you to know that I am writing this article because Esprit asked me whether I want to be part of their spring summer #ImEsprit campaign, a campaign that’s all about…

Babywearing: The Babywearing Consultant

Why book a baby wearing consultant ? Before the birth of the little bird, I didn’t look much into babywearing. However, soon after his birth  I figured out that I may should have at least thought about it. Why ? Because that’s what I was doing. I was carrying my baby. All day long. I carried him…

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…

How I Prepared for Childbirth (incl. Postpartum)

  Recently, I read a post that questioned the whole idea about writing a birth plan; arguing with the fact that childbirth is an event which can’t be planned. Although I agree with the latter – childbirth is indeed an event where we don’t know upfront which exact course it’ll take ( I guess that my first birth…

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. 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…
