This first video is one of six we'll be collaborating on with the expert midwives. In the rest of the series we'll be talking more about the pregnancy journey, such as the first trimester, pregnancy health and wellbeing, the second trimester, what to pack in your hospital bag and preparing for labour.
Speaking with Lesley Gilchrist, founder and CEO of My Expert Midwife, we found out what you do from the moment you take that all important pregnancy test and it tells you, you're pregnant!
Some of the parts touched upon in this video are:
Common pregnancy symptoms
What to expect at your first midwife appointment?
Vitamins in pregnancy
Injection recommendations now you're pregnant
Lesley helps give an honest account of what you may feel like when you're pregnant, some tips on how to prepare for your first midwife appointment and much more. You'll also hear from our in-house mum, Digital Group Editor, Maria Martin, who will share nuggets of her first pregnancy journey and how she's getting on now this year in her second pregnancy.
So grab a cuppa and have a seat with us, as Lesley helps expel any fears or questions you may have about the moment you find out you're pregnant.
