Help her plan ahead
Expectant mums are usually expecting things to change once baby arrives, but often the reality can be harder than one had imagined it might be.
Help her plan some things ahead. For example, some meals for the freezer (think lasagne, curries and stir fry’s with rice,) that can be heated in minutes when cooking is the last thing on everyone’s mind. Or some yummy yet healthy snacks that will fuel her body, and can be eaten on the go (think home made protein balls or slices).
Book a hair appointment for a few weeks after baby has arrived. Or a massage. Or a cleaner to come and help her around the house for a few hours.
