newly pregnant – made with love pregnancy journal introduction


Keeping a journal of this special and emotional time can be hugely therapeutic and stress-relieving. Due to the unpredictable nature of the first trimester, some will be hesitant to begin a traditional pregnancy journal until after their first scan, or hearing the baby’s heartbeat, when it feels more secure or ‘permanent’. Sadly, this means many people miss out on recording all of the immediate excitement of their news, and also forfeit the therapeutic benefits of journalling when they may also be at their most vulnerable.

For the first time, I am offering this introductory (printable pdf) part of made with love pregnancy journal, to enable you to record every special moment and memory from as early as possible in your pregnancy, so that you have a keepsake of this incredible and unique experience.


I hope that this will give you an insight into how the made with love guided pregnancy journal will assist you on your journey. This introduction is all part of the pregnancy journal, so if you love it, you can continue with a physical copy. Journalling is an exercise in mindfulness and reflection, a practise which reduces stress and anxiety, and helps you to recognise and cope with changing feelings and emotions. This positive habit is of incredible value during pregnancy, both helping you to prepare for motherhood and even strengthen your bond with your baby.

I designed and used made with love during my first pregnancy, and now that I’m on my second pregnancy journey, it has been the most wonderful thing to be able to look back on my first experience, while recording my second. I hope that this journal will become an invaluable keepsake for you too.

I love this book unfortunately we have a second rainbow and so hopefully next time a sticky baby will allow us to use it to its full extent. We also have the little white book and the I still do book and love they all go together so well as a wee set and are so comprehensive which really has put my mind at ease with all the planning that comes with a baby and a wedding ♥️

Great keepsake

I purchased 2 of these journals as both my daughters are having their first babies two weeks apart. They both loved them. I was very impressed with the quality and detailing achieved. I would recommend this. The customer service has been spot on as well. Thanking you.

Gift for daughter.

Daughter was having an IVF blastocyst (embryo) transfer the day she received her book and they found out this week the transfer was successful. She is thrilled with the book and said she it was great that she could journal the whole process.

Absolutely gorgeous book filled with many helpful tips. I actually ended up have a miscarriage a couple days after I started filling it in but I’m happy to have those memories written down and when I next get preganant I may just stick sticky notes over the top. Thank you for designing a wonderful book
