Specialist ed’s note
We’re already halfway through 2018 and a lot of babies have passed through my life this year already. I’m so blessed to have the job I have. I get to spend time with pregnant mothers and mothers with babes in arms – every single day! I get to touch a blossoming, bulging belly (with permission) and I get to hold a brand-new baby every day. I also get to see my babies grow up to become strong and healthy children, and the feeling that comes from having been a part of making this possible is indescribable. How a child is nurtured and nourished, both physically and spiritually, from before they’re born, is more important than you can ever know. Pregnant moms – talk to your unborn baby, love him and if you can, get your partner to do the same by touching your belly and talking to your baby too. Babies will know they’re loved, valuable, precious and wanted long before they arrive. As you are reading this, I am entering a new phase in my life. I get to graduate from being a mother to being a grandmother. I’m beyond excited, as I’ve waited so long to hold my very own baby in my arms again. My daughters are blessing me with a grandson and a granddaughter. My heart is full of anticipation, love and joy at the fact that my girls are becoming mothers and I get to be part of their journey, as I have been with so many of you out there. I’m told that being a grandmother is so much nicer than being a mother, and I can’t conceive of that! So I’m wildly excited. I’m going to experience a totally new feeling. Remember, every moment you spend with your baby is a chance to make memories. Be sure to make plenty of good ones!
Much love, Tina (Nana-to-be)
