Welcome to Month 6! Get ready to thrive with our pregnancy tips to celebrate and prepare for another fabulous month.

You’ve made it to month 6! Visible changes are happening now! Let’s make this month memorable and fun. Here’s what we have for you.

Celebrate and Share Your Journey on Your Baby Page

Now is the perfect time to announce your nursery theme or share your upcoming Baby Moon plans. Engaging your family and friends through Villie not only keeps them updated but also helps you feel supported and connected. 

Hot tip: Moms who post 2+ updates each month raise 50% more cash in their diaper funds!

Take that Bump On the Road

What’s your travel style? Whether it's a relaxing staycation or a more adventurous escape, a babymoon is a wonderful way to focus on yourself and your partner. 

Use your baby page to crowdsource recommendations on where to stay and what to do. You know we have an opinion: check out our blog on favorite summer destinations for expecting moms.

Tips to Travel in Comfort

Moving around might be getting tougher, but don't let that stop you! We’ve compiled some essential travel hacks to help you stay comfortable, no matter where your journey takes you.

Get Prepared for Labor: Consider Your Birth Support Team

Is a Doula Right for You?

As your due date approaches, consider whether you want to hire a doula. If you do, this is another thing you should take on this month because they tend to book in advance.

Doulas provide emotional and physical support during childbirth. They do things like helping you know when to head to the hospital, and advocating for you with your care team. 

If you don’t want an official doula, consider bringing a friend to support you during labor in addition to your partner.

Design a Joyful Space for Your Baby

This month is a good time to start planning out your nursery. Some of the furniture you may want could take 6-12 weeks to arrive. And, once you have an idea what you’re looking for you can wait out for the sales.

Need inspiration? Explore decor ideas inspired by popular children’s books or embrace the simplicity of Montessori principles. Use your baby page to source inspiration. Do you know what your own nursery theme was? Ask your family. 

Remember, your baby doesn’t play with toys and probably will sleep in your room for the first few months so you have lots of time.

Get a Free Breast Pump 

You can get a free breast pump. Seriously. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, it’s a requirement of your insurance. 

Now that you know the benefit is yours, here’s how to get a free breast pump. 

When you are ready to pick one out, take our quiz to find the best pump for your needs. All the options can feel overwhelming. And unfortunately you can’t go test these out!

Focus on You

Your body is undergoing incredible changes, and it’s crucial to take care of your skin. From moisturizing to managing stretch marks, check out our tips and product recommendations to keep your skin healthy and glowing.

Month 6: Let’s Go!

Month six is a vibrant time of preparation and reflection. Use your Villie baby page to keep your loved ones involved and informed. From planning your babymoon to decorating your nursery, each step you take brings you closer to meeting your little one. Enjoy every moment of this magical journey and keep sharing those milestones!
