Make The Most Of Maternity Leave!

November 17, 2015

You’ve finally made it to maternity! Now what?

 

As overwhelmed, nervous and excited as you must be feeling, this is perhaps one of the best periods of your life. We’re here to help you make sure you don’t waste it.

 

Meet Other Pregnant Women

 

Pregnancy can be a pretty daunting experience, especially if it’s your first. So there’s nothing like meeting up with other pregnant women to put you at ease. NCT is perhaps one of the best organizations for mums-to-be. For less than £4 a month, you can have unlimited access to various perks including exclusive discounts, low-cost holidays and meet-ups.

 

Sleep

 

This one has enormous benefits and will probably be in short supply once your baby’s born. So stock up as much as you possibly can. Lie-ins, naps, snoozes – all good things!

 

Set Up A Business

 

Once you’re well-rested, you might have the energy to start a business of your own. ‘Power Maternity Leave’ is quickly becoming a ‘thing’, with women taking life by the proverbials. Read Stylist’s interviews with three such women (including the co-founder of Mumsnet) by clicking here.

 

Pamper Yourself

 

This will be one the few chances you’ll get to have time to yourself. Once baby’s here, you’ll regret all the mani-pedis and massages you passed up. You’ll find many beauty spas offering special pregnancy massages so there’s no excuse to miss out.

 

Prepare Frozen Meals

 

When you’ve given birth and barely have time to brush your teeth, you’ll thank us for this one. You can freeze pretty much anything, but check out these freezer-friendly recipes from BBC Good Food.

 

Buy A Camera (Or Make Space On Your Smartphone)

 

If you think you’re a #SelfieQueen now, wait till you’ve had your baby. You won’t want to snap anyone or anything else! So avoid running out of space on your phone and have a good clear-out of all those old photos. Better still, why not invest in something a bit more sturdy. Find out how to shop for the best camera by reading this article by Which?.
