The best way to nurture a pregnant woman is for her to do it to herself. So when we have the initiative called nurture in Pregnancy Awareness Month, it's about self-care. It's not about nurturing the baby. Like I said, everyone will want to nurture that baby. That's easy. Do you have time for yourself? Are you still making time for yourself? The time to start is now. It's always now. So the best way to nurture a pregnant woman or a new mom is to do it yourself. A cup of tea. A walk. having a conversation with a friend on the telephone. Allowing yourself to have an evening out with your partner. Yes, of course, get a mannie-peddie. Go to a spa. All of those things are part of nurturing. But finding, carving out moments throughout your day. They may only be 10 minutes long some days. Other days you might be able to get a whole hour or an entire evening. But make the space. Be the role model for your child. And create that space for yourself so that you can renew. Nurture is very important.
