To Celebrate The Start Of Your New Chapter
It’s been 9 months… (or if you’re like me your little bean decided to make an early arrival), the heart burn, peeing every 2 minutes, not being able to sleep more than 5 minutes without a dig to the ribs has now all ben worth it! You have imagined what they will look like and how it will feel to hold them in your arms and now they are here. What better reason to book a photography session than to document every precious moment of them before the weeks fly by.
This Is The Most Special Time Of Your Life
People never forget their wedding day, but the birth of a child is even more special - it can only happen once! It’s a time that deserves to be captured forever with beautiful pictures that you can look back at again and again. You wouldn’t want your wedding pictures taken on an iPhone or by an amateur photographer - so why do so many families miss this HUGE milestone in their lives?
It’s A Magical Experience For You To Enjoy
This is more than likely going to be your first outing as a family, the first time you’ve handed your baby over to a stranger, and the first time you’ve got to drink a hot drink whilst its actually still hot! This is an emotional time for you, take this chance to marvel over your precious baby and everything you have created.
They Change So Quickly
They really do. Nearly all my clients comment on how fast their little bundle has changed in the short space of time in-between their session and coming to view their final images (don’t worry parents, we keep a box of tissues to hand). My job is to capture a moment in time stood still, they’re never going to be this small again!

3 Important Ways to Take Care of Your Gums While Pregnant
Dr. Amanda Tavoularis (dentably.com)
Pregnancy is a special time in a woman’s life, and it’s important to be as healthy as possible for yourself and your baby. However, because of hormone changes, pregnant women are more likely to develop gum disease or gingivitis during their pregnancy. Gum disease can result in premature births, so it’s important to take care of your gums to help prevent this. I have been practicing dentistry for nearly 20 years and have worked with expecting mothers on keeping their mouth as healthy as possible so they can safely carry their baby to term.
1. Regular Dental Visits
A beneficial way to prevent gum disease while pregnant is to continue visiting your dentist regularly. Professional dental cleanings are more important during your pregnancy and are essential to preventing tooth decay and gum disease. Your dentist can also evaluate your periodontal health so you both can work together to decrease the chance of adverse pregnancy complications. Let your dentist know that you are expecting, and they will be able to accommodate to your baby’s needs as well as your own.
2. Effective Dental Care Routine
Another important part of preventing gum disease is having a good dental care routine during your pregnancy. Good dental hygiene consists of brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and using an antimicrobial mouth rinse. Another important way to keep your mouth healthy during this special time is to avoid sugary foods. Excessively eating foods high in sugar can lead to tooth decay and gum disease, so try incorporating more vegetables, lean proteins, and nuts and seeds into your diet to help prevent gingivitis.
3. Receiving Treatment
Because of the hormonal changes that come with pregnancy, women have up to a 70% chance of developing gingivitis before giving birth. If you’ve been diagnosed with pregnancy gingivitis, it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible to prevent delivering your child preterm. The bacteria from gum disease can attack the ligaments, gums, and bones surrounding your teeth to create infected pockets similar to large infected wounds in the oral cavity. These pockets can provide access to your bloodstream and allow bacteria to travel throughout your body, down to the uterus and placenta.
Visiting your regular dentist is the best way to treat your gingivitis or gum disease but note that most doctors recommend waiting until your second trimester before receiving dental procedures. Your dentist will give you a deep cleaning to get rid of plaque and build-up that’s contributing to the disease. If your gum disease is severe your dentist or doctor may prescribe antibiotics to help combat the infection. Your doctor will know which medications are safe for you during your pregnancy but be sure to let them know of any allergies that you have.
A good dental care routine, regular dental visits, and seeking treatment are some of the best ways to help prevent gum disease and preterm birth. Enjoy this special time in your life and embrace the wonderful changes happening to your body, but always keep your overall health in mind. You are growing a human so it’s important to prioritise you and your baby’s health as you wait to welcome your new little one.
