12 Pregnancy New Year’s Resolutions

January 05, 2016

Will you keep yours?

Happy New Year! How many times have you heard that so far this month? Probably not as many times as you’ve heard, “What’s your New Year’s Resolution?” Try some of these as a response. 


Kick Bad Habits


Of course you’re important, but there’s never been a better reason to break that bad habit than a baby! Whether it’s smoking (try the NHS’s Smokefree app) or cutting back on caffeine (click here for alternatives), you can kick the habit!


Think Before You Eat



Diet is a buzz word for a reason. But it doesn’t have to be torture. By making minor adjustments to what you eat, you could be on the road to digestive bliss in no time. Click here for some great pregnancy superfoods. And check back in with our blog for regular #RecipeSaviours.


Make Time For Yourself


You matter – and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. If you’re not at your best during your pregnancy, you’ll just make it harder on yourself. So take time out to spoil yourself from time to time. Book a pregnancy massage, get a manicure, or simply go for a walk alone when the sun’s out.




There’s no time like maternity leave to start planning for your baby’s arrival. If you need to decorate the nursery, cross off that special shopping list or pack your maternity bag for the hospital, now’s the time!


Be Active


You don’t have to break the bank for a gym membership you’ll never use, nor do you need to be Natasha Brown, but you can try out some of her workouts, exclusive to Secret Saviours. Click here to sign up to our free series of exercise videos and get fit during pregnancy and beyond.




Put your feet up, take naps, sleep! Trust us, you’ll regret the missed opportunities once the baby comes.


Save Money


There’s no time like the present to open up that savings account you keep talking about. With banks offering competitive rates on your savings (click here for advice from moneysupermarket.com), you could be ready to send your little one to Oxford before their first birthday.


Stop And Enjoy The Pregnancy


We know. With the morning sickness, constant back ache and cankles, it’s difficult to find the your inner Buddha. But in the moments of comfort, take a second to check in with your bump. Stop and smell the roses.


Book A Pregnancy Photoshoot


What better way to mark this momentous occasion in your life than to capture it in perfect print? Get dolled up by the professionals and smile for the camera in images you’ll look back on for years to come. Click here for this Bump to Baby Photoshoot from Virgin.


Plan A Babymoon


Things are about to get very busy. So make the most of your quiet time and book a holiday! But we’re not talking about just any holiday. We’re talking about a pamper-packed, heaven-sent, sit-on-your-backside-all-day-and-do-nothing babymoom! Click here for inspiration.


Prepare Baby’s Scrapbook


Smartphones and iClouds might be all the rage, but there’s nothing like thumbing through an old photo album. Get your hands on the perfect scrapbook and build memories to embarrass your child with years from now. Click here for a great selection from notonthehighstreet.com.


Don’t Beat Yourself Up If You Can’t Keep Your Resolutions!


Well, maybe except for the resting one. That you have to keep!
