“My name is Martina. I am the mother of three month old Killian. When I found out that I was pregnant I felt the need of collecting knowledge about a world (pregnancy and early parenting) that was totally unknown to me. I wanted to do the best I could for my little one and myself. I began looking online for support groups and classes and this is how I found out about Pregnancy Matters. One day I decided to give it a go and I walked in to ask some information. Lyn was the first lady I met and she immediately made me feel welcome. She gave me an introduction about what she and her fellow volunteers do and what to expect from their course. I attended the course once a week with Miriam and Helen. I can’t find words true enough to describe the kindness of these two lovely ladies. Miriam and Helen customised a lesson plan unique for me, consisting of knowledge areas in which I was interested and felt I lacked knowledge in, In short, I was a mum-to-be and had a thousand and one things to learn. In my case they covered different aspects of pregnancy: how to eat healthy for you and your developing bub; the development of the baby in your belly and your changing body, trimester by trimester; and how to bond with your unborn baby. And of motherhood: understanding your baby’s cry; reducing the risk of SIDS; how to successful breastfeed; infant bathing and massage, and a lot more. The course consists also of the ‘Earn While You Learn’ program, which gives you the chance to collect baby’s essentials for free throughout the course. We were given a cot, a changing table, a car seat, a nursing pillow, a lot of maternity and baby clothes and more.This helped us greatly financially, which helped to ease the stress of impending parenthood. Thanks to Pregnancy Matters today I look at my little man crying and I’m able to tell whether he’s hungry, tired, if he has wind or if something else is bothering him. I feel comfortable in swaddling, changing, bathing, feeding and nurturing him. I better understand the changes my body went through and the changes it is still going through. But more important than anything, I found precious friendships which still continue after three months since the end of my course. So, if I could give advice to the mums-to-be and families-to-be out there, I would without any doubts recommend them to go to see these lovely ladies.”
