Preparing For Your Baby

Pregnancy Announcements Photos Memories
So you ve just had your 12-week scan, and the reality of having a baby is hitting home! It s been just you and your partner on the journey so far and now it s time to tell your family and friends.
Congratulations! Now that your pregnancy is the real deal, it's time to break the good news to your nearest and dearest!
For most women confirmation of their pregnancy brings a range of emotions surprise, happiness, fear, delight, anxiety and for some, perhaps even disappointment.
Whether you are over the moon about your pregnancy or feeling a bit apprehensive, it s a great idea to consider jotting down your thoughts and feelings when you can.
It s becoming more and more popular for pregnant women to want photographs of their pregnant belly.
Gender Prediction
Gender prediction is usually a hot topic of conversation after you ve shared that you are expecting.
There are a few names for the Chinese Birth Chart - it s also known as the Chinese Pregnancy Calendar and the Chinese Birth Calendar.
One old wives tale is based around using the baby s heart rate as a predictor for what gender they will be.
You ll find when you are pregnant that everyone s an expert with an opinion, even if you aren t that interested in hearing it! Though most people will be good hearted about sharing their stories and theories on what they feel is right for you and your baby.
Baby Nursery Equipment
Planning the design of the baby's nursery is an exciting activity for expecting parents but often it can be time consuming with all the decisions that needs to be made.
The walls of the nursery sets the scene, so naturally it is the most visible part of the room.
One of the most exciting aspects of having a new baby will be welcoming it home and into your family.
Planning and setting up a nursery to welcome your newborn baby is an exciting time.
How do you know which is the best chair for your bub or toddler?
Maternity Parental Leave
It is an exciting time in the lead up to your maternity leave.
Under current legislation, eligible employees who are the primary carer of a newborn or adopted child are entitled to 18 weeks' leave that will be paid at the national minimum wage, from the Australian government.
Can dads stay at home after bub is born? Yes they certainly can.
If you suspect you are being treated unfairly as a result of being pregnant, you have the right to question why.
The Australian Government sets a minimum standard for maternity and parental leave through the National Employment Standards (NES).
