Pregnant and Empowered
I remember how nervous I was when I was pregnant for the first time. Although terribly excited, I was also scared that I would do something wrong. There’s so many “what if’s” and awful stories and TV shows out there, that it didn’t take long to doubt myself. Until I had someone tell me that I know my body better than anyone else, including a doctor. That made me pregnant and empowered, right then and there.
Now I am watching my kids have their babies. And while each one is different and makes different choices, both from each other as well as myself, at the end of the day I try to remind them..
“You are the one who is pregnant. Not your husband, not your doctor, not even me. You should educate yourself, don’t be afraid to ask questions or even switch doctors if you aren’t satisfied with the level of care you’re getting. You are pregnant and empowered and that is a wonderful and awesome feeling!”
Easier said than done sometimes, I know. But that’s why I was glad to hear about a new program being sponsored by Boppy and First Candle called Pregnant and Empowered.
YOU KNOW BEST! #kickscount
The Boppy Company and First Candle – a trusted leader in infant health and survival – are working together to educate moms-to-be on how to foster healthy habits during pregnancy with the Pregnant and Empowered – Kicks Count! program.
Inside every purchased Boppy® Custom Fit Total Body Pillow, you’ll find information on how to perform a kicks count daily regimen and additional information on healthy prenatal care for mom and baby.
Not only does Boppy® make awesome products that I think most folks have used one time or another, they are spreading the word about this power of moms, for knowing themselves and their baby better than anyone else.
And First Candle is committed to education and help for new parents so that every child can make it to their first birthday!
Check out this free brochure available that offers tips and safe practices while preparing for pregnancy and birth.
Boppy® is spreading the word about the Pregnant and Empowered program inside one of their best selling products, the custom fit total body pillow!
The newly-designed Boppy® Cutstom Fit Total Body Pillow is a pregnancy pillow that was developed with a physical therapist to provide customized support throughout your pregnancy. The flexible, three-piece design means you can use the combination that works best for you. Choose from: Head/Neck Support, Belly/Back Support, and Hip/Leg/Ankle Support. Extended length design provides support all the way down to your ankles, alleviating strain on hips. Machine washable for easy care.
Now moms can get the support they need and deserve, both with this custom pillow as well as with the brochure and program information! I love that expecting moms can switch it up so they get the most support and comfort with a single product, and still be able to toss it in the washing machine for easy cleaning!
Boppy® products are always popular at baby showers and I think all of my daughters that are mothers have used them in their houses. I can see this body pillow quickly going on their wish lists for the next round of grandkids!
