This is an excerpt from one of my favourite children’s books of all time – The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams. It says a lot about what we BECOME as mothers, as fathers, as parents. We understand what being REAL is – getting hurt doesn’t matter, becoming ‘ugly’ doesn’t matter.

It is a known fact that pregnancy can increase your foot size. It is associated with a permanent loss of arch height. Seventy percent (70%) of first time mothers experience significant changes in their foot size. The arch height decreases during pregnancy and in turn, the foot length increases between 2 and 10 millimeters (about 0.1 to 0.4 inches).
First pregnancies caused the most changes in feet size. Second and future pregnancies may be less likely to affect foot shape and size.
Invite families and friends to witness this memorable event of your pregnancy. Celebrate that special child-bonding moment with your loved ones, wherever they are in the world.
