Why I Choose Hypnobirthing

When I was pregnant with the little bird, I had booked a birth preparation class for my man and myself.

Pregnancy Style: Black & Denim

During this pregnancy, I had to say goodbye to my regular jeans from early on as I started to show very fast. As most of the maternity wear from my first pregnancy was either really worn off or too big, I started to look for some newness. Unfortunately, when it comes to maternity fashion I feel…

My Second Pregnancy: The First Trimester

  The night before I did a pregnancy test I was out partying in a small bar in Amsterdam. I remember that I asked at some point something like “…so and then Ken left ?”. With all the noise from the music and people shouting around us, my friends replied “WHAT YOU ARE PREGNANT?”. With…
