💣 Getting bombed with pregnancy information?

Expecting a baby is such a minefield… Advice is chucked at you from all angles, some of it welcome, some of it, not so much!

With so many well-meaning friends and family members offering opinions, it is often hard to know who to listen to!

Here you are, at the beginning of arguably the most important adventure of your life, some help navigating it would be beneficial, right?

When it comes to Instagram accounts to follow when pregnant, there is a whole UNIVERSE of them out there! Finding one that speaks your language can be a bit of a task.

To ease the pressure, we have compiled five of our favourite IG accounts to follow when pregnant. Enjoy!

Happy Mum, Happy baby

Giovanni Fletcher became the nation’s sweetheart when she was crowned Queen of the jungle.

The ‘I’m a celebrity, get me out of here’ winner won our hearts with her down to earth attitude and deep love for her family.

When she founded Happy Mum, Happy Baby, its content started helping new parents from all walks of life. With advice right from early pregnancy to dealing with older kids, it is a safe space for everyone.

There is everything here from memes, inspirational quotes, relatable stories, guest interviews (with both celebrities and everyday folk, like you and me)

Scary Mommy

Follow Scary Mommy for authentically real, no-nonsense advice for those looking for an honest approach to pregnancy and parenting.

Throw in some belly laughs and this is the one for you. And the memes! If ever any memes could help you through pregnancy, then it is the ones shared on here.

Project Nursery

Looking for nursery designing inspo?

Then this is the IG account for you! The only issue with Project Nursery is it might make you want to have twenty children, just so you can try out as many of the incredibly beautiful ideas as possible.

You can easily get lost on this account for days – it is a veritable feast of interior design for babies. Do not blame us if you end up planning a much bigger family because of this account!
