Making New Year’s resolutions is a great way to start the year with a positive attitude & some new goals to strive for. But with a beautiful new baby on the way, this year’s resolutions are sure to look a little different from last year’s. You’re already headed for a dry January, and you certainly won’t want to be losing any weight!
Here are a few of our favourite resolutions for mamas-to-be…
Resolution 1: Take More Pictures
Get the Look: Black Maternity Shift Dress
This one’s a no-brainer. Pregnancy is such a special time in your life, and it’ll be over before you know it (even if it may not always feel that way)! Organising a pregnancy photo shoot is the perfect way to make some memories. Treat yourself to some beautiful new maternity clothes, get dressed up, do your hair & makeup, and capture your gorgeous new curves on camera. Of course once your little bundle of joy arrives , you won’t be needing any encouragement to get the camera out!
Resolution 2: Get Active
Staying active through pregnancy is a great way to help prepare your body for the physical demands of labour & caring for a newborn. Whether you decide to hit the gym, join a pregnancy yoga class or get out for a gentle jog, a little exercise is guaranteed to boost your mood and your energy levels. Check out our selection of stylish maternity sportswear & yoga gear.
Resolution 3: Eat Well
You’re eating for two now – and with a baby on board, it’s more important than ever to make sure you’re getting your 5 a day along with plenty of pregnancy-friendly vitamins, minerals & nutrients.

Resolution 4: Get Nesting
Babies come with plenty of stuff, so now is the time to harness those nesting instincts and have a good spring clean before he or she arrives. Take the opportunity to de-clutter, tidy and organise your home – you’ll have plenty on your plate once baby is born, so seize the moment & do it now while you have the time.
Last but certainly not least, make sure that you take some time out for yourself to relax, recharge & indulge in things that make you happy. Whether it’s a trip to the spa, a lazy weekend brunch or even just a quiet afternoon to yourself, that brief moment will work wonders for your mood & your energy levels.
Whatever your resolutions, we wish you a healthy, happy New Year mamas!
