Your Baby & Toddler - - Letters - AHTRAA VOTERSON, CAPE TOWN

It was 2014 in the mid­dle of Au­gust, lit­er­ally a month be­fore I gave birth to my lit­tle princess.

I was 21 years old and clue­less about preg­nancy, even more so about moth­er­hood. I de­cided to pur­chase my first preg­nancy magazine ( Your Preg­nancy) and boy, was I in­trigued.

I stopped lis­ten­ing to what other moms were telling me and started to lis­ten to the ex­perts. I read about morn­ing sick­ness, wa­ter births, funny preg­gie truths and the Danny K and Lisa ex­clu­sive.

Read­ing the magazine helped with my anx­i­ety and wor­ries es­pe­cially about giv­ing birth in a gov­ern­ment hos­pi­tal.

The ar­ti­cle “My gov­ern­ment birth” shed some light on what I was walk­ing into. You lit­er­ally pre­pared me in a short pe­riod of time and I am so grate­ful for such an amaz­ing magazine.

But my story does not end there. After read­ing Your Preg­nancy I then pur­chased my first Your Baby magazine.

The magazine helped me tremen­dously and is still help­ing me with my first­born, who is now three years old, and my sec­ond-born, who is now five months old.

Thank you for your con­tin­u­ous sup­port and for help­ing all of the moth­ers out there.

Sis­ters: Iqra (three old) and Ru­maisa (five months old) Hen­dricks
