Affirm it with a Post-It

Competitions

We have teamed up with the wonderful Steph from Don’t Buy Her Flowers.com to give you lovely women a treat that you truly deserve. Like us, local girl Steph, knows the importance of how we as mothers and pregnant mothers are lacking in the ‘me time’ department. The care package that we will be giving the lucky winner will hopefully encourage you to take 10 minutes to fill your cup and look after number one. You can see the prize in full here.

 

Not only will we give you a ‘pick me up’ hamper from Steph, but we want to help you help yourself feel like empowered, strong and confident from within. So to enter this competition we want you to ‘Affirm it with a Post-It’ so get your positive post it caps on and write an affirmation on a post- it, postcard, piece of paper and show us where you have it in your house to remind yourself of what a super job you are doing as woman!

 

There are a few rules:

  1. The affirmations must be in the present (unless it is to do with childbirth). For example, ” I am strong. I am brave.” rather than “I will be brave.” The only exception is for childbirth, so “I will have a positive birth experience.”
  2. The affirmations must be positive. For example, ” I am winning.” rather than, “I am not a failure.”

 

To enter send in your photos to thebumptobabychapter@gmail.com or tag us and hashtag #affirmitwithapostit on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.We will put all pictures below in a gallery.

I hope doing this adds a fist pump of positivity to your day!

 

The competition will run until the end of November 2016. The winner will be contacted by 5th December 2016. By entering the competition you agree to us The Bump to Baby Chapter and Steph Don’t Buy her Flowers  to use the pictures for social media or on their website.

Hospital Bag Items.

Here is a few of my faves ....

💡Lip balm- Gas and air can make your lips really dry. So can hospitals with their dry air.
💡 Earplugs/Eye mask- This one is useful if you need to spend any time on the antenatal maternity ward eg. induction of labour. Ear plugs are definitely not for after you’ve had the baby!!
💡Flannel/water spray/mini fan - You can get HOT in labour. Also hospitals 🥵
💡Socks- if you have an epidural or spinal. When it wears off your feet can feel cold!

💡 Always pack an extra bag to keep at home for a relative to bring in if you unexpectedly need to stay in for longer

💡 Dads/Partners- Pack yourself a bag too. Think change of clothes, food, toothbrush, food, drinks, food. Paracetamol is also a good one for you to have, hospitals can’t dish out the drugs to Dads and lack of sleep and hospital air can mean headaches.

What were your most used items in labour/birth? Midwife buddy’s - what’s your tips?? Or any pregnant mothers have any hospital bag Qs...
