As time is ticking down to her arrival, we (I mean me) have finally finished off decorating Liberty’s nursery. #anothertasktickedoffthelist
As soon as I knew I was having a girl, I knew instantly that I would be able to live out my fantasy of having a room to decorate with rainbows, clouds and unicorns!

With 2 weeks to go before Liberty is due to arrive, I have finally packed my hospital bag! (This meaning I have put things in the bag as I had already prepared it weeks ago #superorganised😊).

Following on from creating my Visual Birth Plan, you may have noticed that there were two plans which needed to be referred to separately, these being:
- Special Requirements – After birth care plan
- Breastfeeding Plan
After the Perinatal mental health meeting, it was noted that a plan needed to be created for my aftercare once Liberty is here to ensure that if I am showing any signs of either postnatal depression or postpartum psychosis, then I can get the support I need quickly. Also a plan would need to be created if I was to breastfeed following on from further research relating to the whole lamotrigine in breastmilk situation where I am able to still take my medication and how much transfer into my milk is kept to a minimum.

Dave’s contribution to Liberty’s wardrobe! Sure she will love it! 🤔 He clearly has no idea about sizing as got her 9-12months, the season will be over before she can wear it! I have to admit, it is cute with the little shorts and matching socks 👶🏻⚽️👍🏻
So at Week 36 the countdown has officially commenced! I have finally written my birth plan (sorry meant preference) So here goes:
