Twelve years ago, almost to the day, I became I mum. In the next 10 years I would enjoy three more pregnancies, and the birth of three babies. Each time the pregnancy test came back positive I was a little older and a little more educated on all that was involved in the adventure of growing a human. There are ups and there are downs. There is so much to know, to be excited about and of course to worry about.
As a new mom your most important resource of information are other moms. No one else will be as honest with you about their own experiences, as someone who has been through it themselves.
With my first baby I was the first of my friends to have a baby so my biggest concern was shopping. There were so many choices for strollers, carriers, diaper bags, cribs, clothes and more. I broke down one day because I didn’t feel ready for our baby, as in I hadn’t bought enough stuff. I shake my head writing this knowing now beautifully naive I was.
Six weeks after my son was born was the first meeting of my moms group. Eight complete strangers showed up at my house with their newborns and with only babies in common we shared our most intimate moments as moms. We braved snow storms to meet up, we were our own little village of support. Hearing the other moms' stories very quickly made me realize just how naive and lucky I was with my boring pregnancy.
We talked of miscarriages, trying for years to conceive, nine months of morning sickness, tests, diabetes, genetic tests, who found out the sex of their baby and who waited for a surprise, everything.

The thought of becoming a parent for the first time, can feel very overwhelming. Here’s a great checklist of things to do once you begin that journey, think of it as a list from your first mom friend and please share it with any pregnant moms you may know.


I personally couldn't wait until my babies arrived to find out their sex, so I love that with Panorama prenatal screening you can not only find our the sex of your baby as early as nine weeks gestation but you can also climb your family tree and do genetic testing without any risk to your baby.
