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.

Pregnancy is an exciting time as you count down the months, weeks and days to the arrival of your little one. But it can also be a time of little worries, niggles and gripes - one of them being heartburn.
Every new parent is undoubtedly on a mission to get more zzz’s, so it surely makes sense to research the best mattress for your little one and find out what really goes on under the surface they are lying on for over 8 hours every day.
As a parent, you probably take multiple photos of your little one every day – there are so many amazing milestones to cross off your list as you watch your baby grow, capturing and sharing these milestones and memories is a joy.
