How has pregnancy changed you as a woman?
It has made me a stronger woman and mother. Pregnancy is very empowering.
What advice do you wish you had known before getting pregnant ( even if it’s something gross)?
The hormonal roller-coaster you go through and how every pregnancy is different some are more painful and difficult than others.
What are your 3 must have pregnancy items?
A good supportive bra throughout, a good belly/body butter, a heat pad (for all your aches and pains)
What is one thing you find beautiful about being pregnant?
The life growing inside you its a miracle, gift from God. Once they arrive i would say your in awe of how for 9 months you support and form a human being. Every stage is exciting and makes the whole process worth it.
What would you tell someone who just found out they were pregnant?
Its hard, no book can tell you exactly what to expect, you’ve been given this gift and enjoy and cherish every stage. As women our bodies where meant to go through this process, its an honour every moment every stage is a miracle. Its just simply beautiful.
What are your beauty must haves while pregnant?
I didn’t per say have any beauty must haves but if i had to pick i would say a good vitamin( i took juice plus), a good body butter and facial regime (hormones can dry your skin out terribly) and for me this pregnancy i treated myself to some massages, pedicures, days at the salon and just a simple epsom salt bath most nights (a little time to myself)
Kind words about your photographer?
Amazing, i have never met someone so passionate about her work and willing to go out of her way to ensure you feel beautiful. This pregnancy was a struggle for me and thanks to christine she made me enjoy it on days i didnt feel beautiful or my hormones where getting the better of me. She captured images i will have forever and showed me how beautiful pregnancy really can be. Its made me almost want to have another . I never felt more beautiful. Her patience and dedicated to each session truly is astounding i feel honoured she has chosen me.
