Kay’s Video Diary: 6 week check

Mum-to-be Kay continues her first-hand experience of her pregnancy journey.

A Nottinghamshire woman who has been providing a video blog of her pregnancy journey to give others an insight into the experiences of motherhood, has explained how family life is going during those first few weeks since baby arrived.

Here is the fifth part of mum-to-be Kay’s blog that she is doing for our breastfeeding and infant feeding support team.

In this video she talks about night feeds, emotions, oversupply of milk, latching on, their first family walk with the dog, introducing bottle feeding with dad, plus breastfeeding in public, the 6 week check-up, and a funny wee-related tale during a health visitor appointment.

Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust’s breastfeeding and infant feeding support team joined forces with Kay after she offered to do a number of videos.

The videos are covering sharing her journey through pregnancy and the early days of a new baby, and talking about some of the feelings that many new mums and mums-to-be experience – excitement, anxiety, love, worry – to name but a few!

Thank you so much Kay and we hope you all enjoy following us and Kay on her journey. This is the fifth instalment of videos from that journey, covering the final weeks of pregnancy up to and after the birth. Keep an eye out for future updates.
