Hi, Welcome to the Nesting Mum
Somewhere around the middle of my first pregnancy, I found my bras feeling a little too tight. So I wandered –clueless- into the nearby Kmart underwear section. There under the “maternity” section, I found some nice frilly bras, some sturdy looking black ones and even ones with spots. I sorted out my size and went home. What was I thinking? These bras were maternity bras –for feeding your baby! – they weren’t for someone whose growing middle was causing them trouble in the morning doing the clips up– just buy a bra extender or a bigger regular bra, you goose! I laughed incredulously at my naivety of all things pregnancy.
Fast forward three babies later and I have a little bit more knowledge in the area but what I was still finding hard was finding out where to go for all my pregnancy needs – sure there was baby shops for cots, prams, change tables, a gazillion toys and the extra cute little outfits that you always get sucked into buying too many of – but items such as maternity clothes, exercise groups for pregnancy and the right pillow for those sore hips weren’t easy to find. I was lucky enough to have a great support team around me – I learnt hypnobirthing, utilised chiropractic every step of the way, encapsulated my placenta and found my home in a great team of midwifes – but most of my pregnant (and non-pregnant friends) hadn’t even heard about the benefits of these types of services/products, let alone knew where to find them.
And so the idea for a curated collection of pregnancy services, all in the one spot, was created. It is called The Nesting Mum to symbolise the person you are about to become – a mother and a home to someone whose heart beats within yours. The Nesting Mum will help to take away the worry and time spent searching for the right pregnancy products and services – so you can focus on the most important bit – you and your baby.
My name is Kylie, I am a wife and mother of three (you can see our family above in our other occupation – professional picnickers) and I look forward to walking beside you on your pregnancy journey.
