Breastfeeding is NOT Erotic

When it comes to my blog I usually try to follow a schedule so I only write twice a week (keep in mind that I have a 3 months old baby that I need to take care of and enjoy with!). However, I have something in my chest that I have to put out there because I’m so upset that I’m about to lose it! Rant mode ON: Yesterday I was looking for an image [Continue Reading…]

One of the best decisions that I made during my pregnancy was to attend to prenatal classes. I have a lot of friends that believe that they are expensive and therefore a waste of time and money. However, luckily in Alberta we have some free classes for first time parents so you can try them without paying a dime! The online website for the classes can be found here. As you can see there, in [Continue Reading…]

Completely exhausted

Mums are baby fueled

2.03 am in the morning and I wake up because I hear my little munchkin crying in his bassinet right beside my bed. I know he is hungry so without hesitation I jump out of bed and start the feeding and changing diaper routine. By the time that I am done it will be around 3 or 3.30 am and I know that you have to pump immediately if I want to improve my insufficient [Continue Reading…]

While it is awesome to see the little one growing and developing his new skills over time, it is scary and overwhelming seeing how quick everything is going and how close I am getting to the end of my maternity leave. And to be honest, just the [Continue Reading…]

The first urge when you know that you are pregnant is to start googling and reading absolutely everything related to pregnancy and labor (or at least that was my case). Internet is a great resource and it has tons of information to offer, specially related to a topic that popular. There’s plenty of blogs and websites that try to stick to the facts and are definitely a good source of information but there are others [Continue Reading…]

Positive pregnancy test

I am pregnant… And now what?

August 15, 2016 TheSpanishMom 0

Pregnancy and Labor are words that can be somehow scary for a first time mother but if you add “being a foreigner” to the mix then these words are definitely terrifying. With this post and other ones in these series I hope I can help you, foreign mama, in the process of having a baby in Canada. When I first learned that I was pregnant it was an extremely happy moment for me; however, being [Continue Reading…]

Hello World!

So this is it. After a full month of overthinking, I have finally decided to sit down and actually write the first post for my blog… And I have to admit I’m terrified! So why am I doing this? You may ask… Well, since I learned that I was pregnant back in September 2015 I’ve been reading a lot in the Internet: about pregnancy, labor, babies, parenthood, etc. and the bloggers community has been extremely [Continue Reading…]
