These mums will be ‘keeping it real’ as they share their ups and downs during their pregnancies. Come and join in the conversation on The Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Support, Facebook group.

The group is a supportive and non-judgmental forum for mums-to-be to ask questions, share tips and gain important knowledge about maintaining a healthy pregnancy. Oh, and did we mention there is the occasional eye candy too!
