The journey to motherhood is a life-changing one. Even without baby brain, nine months is a long time to remember all the thoughts and feelings we experience while being pregnant.
A pregnancy journal is a perfect tool to help mums-to-be document their pregnancy milestones so they can one day read and share them with their little love.
Whether your journal is like a beautiful blank canvas or filled with pre-baby checklists and prompts, the styles and options are endless.
