We don’t have to prove ourselves as pregnant women – an appeal from Nicola Schmidt
She is clear, direct, to the point – her words mean something. They make us think on a deeper level and also touch us deeply. In our 18-minute power talk with Nicola Schmidt, she shows us how we can focus on ourselves and our family in these times of being constantly reachable and rapid change. How we can live up our values. How we can take care of ourselves – starting when pregnant.
What the talk with Nicola Schmidt is about
How can I create a true community? How can I manage to live without being constantly stressed on a negative level? How can we experience pregnancy in an “appropriate” way? Or: what does “appropriate” even mean? All these questions and more are discussed our 18-minute power talk via Zoom. Nicola’s message to all pregnant women: “You don’t have to prove anything to anyone.” The mother of two and entrepreneur calls out to all pregnant women: “We don’t have to do everything that everyone else does during our pregnancy!” Nicola explains how we get to this point. She gives us tips on how we can step on the brakes, be mindful of ourselves and yet happy at the same time. In short: “merciless slowing down” and “your inner voice”.
