Before I go on and on about my life, I would like to send a big shoutout to all the single mothers out there. You are real superheroes who don’t always get enough credit for all you do, especially since you do it alone.
I can guarantee you that my pregnancy journey would have been long and hard without the support of my amazing boyfriend, family and friends. No women should have to go through pregnancy alone.
I am an independent woman and I never realized the importance of a strong support system until I fell pregnant. I took it for granted but now I know that as a pregnant woman there are things that you shouldn’t have to worry about. Someone else can take care of them. We need all the help we can get and we deserve being spoiled.
Having loving and supportive people around you makes the pregnancy experience exciting and special. Just knowing that someone is as excited as you are about the pregnancy elevates the experience to new levels. You also need people who will be understanding and comforting when you experience down moments during the pregnancy.
I personally needed a lot of support. Juggling a career with all the changes and challenges that pregnancy throws at you, has not been an easy task. I experienced a few medical complications that has left me in tears but knowing that I wasn’t alone made the burden easier to carry. My boyfriend, family and friends are always by my side. They all want the best for me and the baby and that is a blessing from God.
The most surprising and amazing experience has been the love and words of encouragement I have been receiving from people in general. I cannot tell you how much those messages and gifts meant to me and my boyfriend. We are the luckiest parents and we are blessed with a baby that attracts so much love, support and blessings.
My wish for any pregnant woman is to never feel alone but to have the greatest support and love.
