Mama's Baby Journal

A Keepsake for Precious Memories, Moments, Milestones, and Miracles

The days and years will flash past before you know it—this beautiful gift is more than just a journal; it is a lifelong keepsake any mother will cherish forever.

As an expecting or new mama, you can't be expected to organize and scrapbook every time something exciting happens! But we know you'll want to keep the memories fresh. This journal to the rescue—with simple prompts, questions, and spots to paste in photos or other items, there is no need to stress, mama! 

A well-seasoned mother herself, Jennifer knows exactly what's important and what you'll wish you wrote down a decade ago, and has compiled these years of expertise so it's all at your fingertips. This journal is divided into the following sections:

  • Anticipation—This section covers everything having to do with the pregnancy, from the moment it was discovered to how it was announced, how the pregnancy went, baby showers, hopes and dreams...
  • Arrival—Giving birth! When and where the action started, the race to the hospital, who was there and how it went, first moments together... 
  • Adjustment—What a special yet crazy time for both parents and babies; capture the early days and weeks as a parent, adjusting to that role, and the baby adjusting to life...
  • Adventures—Pretty much everything else!
A perfect gift for any expectant mama to forever remember this breathtaking journey.
