Feminism of the week: Empowerment for your pregnancy

Feminism

Today’s inspiration for feminism is a quote from a man.

Dr. Marsden Wagner, born in San Francisco (USA), studied at UCLA perinatology and perinatal science.

After purchasing some basics, my dear friend who has been pregnant a year prior to me, told me that I could get just normal clothes a few sizes bigger. I did not agree with her. But it got me thinking…

What parents with style want

Family

When I got pregnant I tried to restrict myself from buying everything for the little human because I heard from many parents, how babies just grow out so fast and how I would only need a few basics in the beginning.

Well as soon as I got to the baby section I forgot all about it. He already has three pair of shoes, one of which are the tiniest cutest baby sandals that he probably won’t ever wear…
