There’s more to maternity leave than changing nappies and watching TV. Make it a special time for you and your baby...
You’ve finished work and are now counting down the days until your baby’s arrival, or you’re smack bang in the middle of your leave with your gorgeous baby already here, there are still plenty of opportunities and ways to make your maternity leave enjoyable and productive – for both you and your little one.
1) Allow yourself some ‘me’ time
Try to give yourself some downtime between leaving work and the baby’s arrival.
Ideally, you’ll have finished your baby shopping and can concentrate on the important things like sleeping, reading and watching Mad Men – those simple pleasures that are soon to become precious luxuries.
Oh and triple checking you’ve packed your hospital bag.
