Becoming a mum, discovering a new life: it's the beginning of a great adventure!

Finding out you are expecting a child is an emotional moment. Were you expecting it? Were you hoping for it? Or was your pregnancy a bit of a surprise? Whatever the context, your life is about to change, because you are going to have a baby and start your own family. And that's one hell of a change!

Joy, tiredness, anxiety…: a time for little (and not so little) changes

Expecting a child is a wonderful adventure made up of a lot of different chapters! Strong emotions, pregnancy hormones, your feelings, the people around you, all of this makes up the exciting cocktail of your everyday life throughout your pregnancy.

Since you found out you are pregnant, you have started on your path to your new life. Your pregnancy is, above all, a personal thing, in your body and your mind, with a personality that is nobody's but yours. And then, the future father and your friends and family will be there to share this adventure with you.

Emotions are on the cards! Joy, tears, questions… embrace them all. You are going to accomplish the greatest miracle of humankind, you are going to create a new life.

You and your life as you know it are about to change

Pregnancy is a time of gradual physical changes. Even if you can't yet see it, you are experiencing all the unmistakable signs. As the weeks pass, your body, an extraordinary machine designed to grow a baby inside it, will change.

Your loved ones can provide invaluable support if you need it, and the women you know who already have children will no doubt have words of wisdom to help you. Last but not least, medical care is also available to ensure your pregnancy runs smoothly.

These 9 months of pregnancy also give you the time you need to ensure that each member of your household takes their place in your family. At the heart of this adventure: you, the mum to be, the centre of attention.


Breast milk is the ideal food for infants. WHO recommends breastfeeding exclusively for the first 6 months and then continuation thereof until the age of 2 alongside the introduction, from 6 months, of safe and appropriate complementary foods. Please consult a healthcare professional if you need any advice about feeding your baby.
