The lead up to labour is full of midwife appointments, confusing paperwork and the longing to see the squirming bundle inside our tummies, so it’s important to use your time wisely to prepare mentally and physically for the joys and tears of motherhood (FYI – nothing can really prepare you!).  If you have just started your maternity leave and are thinking ‘what now?’ then we have compiled a list of things to do before you finally get to meet the amazing little creature that’s been growing inside you for so long…
