One of my favourite parts as a blogger is reading all the other blogs out there and seeing what they come up with. I took a break in December for the holiday but am back with the third installment of my Blog Love Round-Up series. The theme for this one is pregnancy and motherhood related, I hope you have a chance to check some of these great articles out. Let me know in the comments below which ones you identified with the most.
1. A Village of Support: The True Value of Friendship When Life Gets Real
by Tiffany at The Good Enuf Mommy
Tiffany says “It doesn’t just take a village to raise a child; it takes a village to raise a mom.” She is so right. I got chills reading her story as I can completely identify with it. I rely on my own village heavily for physical help and emotional support. I could not do this without them and I love how she shares her journey with us.
I love this super creative Supermom Gift Box gift made by Alanya’s Creations. What mom doesn’t need a reminder that she is a super mom? Why not remind the mom in your life how awesome she is with some super mom inspired gear?
3. Essential Oils to Use During Pregnancy
Lyne from the Ottawa Mommy Club
I love essential oils. I used peppermint and lavender so much during my pregnancy to help with nausea and headaches. Lyne has some great tips on ailments you may encounter (in pregnancy and also in general) and some essential oils that may help.
4. How to Help a NICU mom | NICU Mom Series
Erin at Stay at Home Yogi
This is such a great post from Erin. I hope none of you have had to experience a NICU or supporting a friend who just went through labour and had to leave her baby at the hospital and go home without them. It’s an awful thing to go through, close friends of mine experienced this last year and I know there was not necessarily a lot to be done to help, but these tips are a great start.
5. DIY BABY BOOK GIFT
from Marie at DIY Adultation
My baby Po just turned one almost a month ago, and I STILL have not even started his baby book. Ooops! Which makes this gift such an amazing one! Who has time to themselves to do anything let alone scrapbook or fill out a book? This pre-made baby book would make an amazing thoughtful gift for any mother-to-be.

This list is so awesome. Yes, before I had kids I read magazines, took baths, ate hot soup too, and SLEPT! Now….. I have kids. This is a cute article on how life can change so much post-kids.
9. ALL NATURAL TEETHING POPSICLE
from a la mum
If you have a teething baby you know that you will try anything to help make them feel better. Luckily cold can really help them, I have seen a lot of different recipes for teething popsicles but I love how natural this one is. A great way to soothe the teeth of a sore baby and distract them.
