Blog Introduction:

It’s not easy to think about the worst-case scenario. But when it comes to natural disasters, it’s important to be prepared for anything. As women who are seeking traditional roles in marriage, it is important to understand how to prepare for disasters and protect your family. Whether it’s a storm, earthquake, or fire, it’s critical to have a plan in place. In this blog post, we will provide some tips for how to start prepping for disasters.

Blog Body:

Make a Communication Plan

The first and most important step in disaster prepping is to create a communication plan with your family. In the event of a disaster, it is common for cell phone towers to go down, and it can be difficult to reach loved ones. That’s why it’s essential to establish a communication plan beforehand. Discuss which family members to contact in an emergency and have a designated meeting spot in case you get separated.

Gather Supplies

One of the most important steps in prepping for a disaster is gathering necessary supplies. It’s critical to have enough food, water, and medicine to last for several days. Create a list of essential items that you will need, such as batteries, flashlights, a radio, and a first aid kit. Make sure to include items for your children and pets as well.

Protect Your Home

Protecting your home is an essential part of disaster prep. We recommend taking steps to make your home more resilient to natural disasters. For example, consider installing storm shutters, reinforcing your roof, or trimming trees that could potentially fall on your house. It’s also a good idea to familiarize yourself with your homeowners' insurance policy to ensure that you’re adequately covered.

Develop Life Skills

Having essential life skills can be incredibly helpful during a disaster. We recommend taking courses on basic home repairs, camping, cooking, and first aid. These skills can help you prepare for a disaster and may even come in handy in everyday life.

Build a Support Network

The final step in disaster prepping is building a support network. Consider joining a community group or volunteering for emergency response organizations. It’s also a good idea to have a friend or family member who lives outside of your city who you can reach out to if you need to evacuate.

Conclusion:

Preparing for a disaster can be challenging, but it’s essential to protect yourself and your family. As women seeking traditional roles in marriage, taking steps to prep for disasters can provide peace of mind and ensure that you’re ready for anything. Remember to create a communication plan, gather necessary supplies, protect your home, develop essential life skills, and build a support network. By taking these steps, you can ensure that you’re prepared for anything life throws your way.

Start with a wellness checkup: The first step in prepping your body for pregnancy should be a thorough physical examination from your doctor. Both you and your partner should plan a visit to your doctor to check your overall health. During the wellness checkup, your doctor will assess your medical history, past pregnancies, and hereditary factors. If you have any medical conditions, now is the time to address and manage them.

Get your nutrition right: Pregnant women need to eat healthy meals to support their growing babies. A few months before planning to conceive, it is essential to ensure a balanced and nutritious diet that is rich in folic acid, iron, vitamins, and proteins. Some foods to include in your diet include leafy greens, whole grains, lean protein, fruits, and vegetables.

Manage stress levels: Pregnancy can be stressful, and stress is not good for a woman’s body. At least a year before conceiving, you should focus on taking care of your mental health. Consider taking part in yoga classes or finding a stress-reducing hobby.

Quit smoking and alcohol: Smoking and drinking alcohol during pregnancy can cause serious harm to a developing baby. It is essential to stop smoking and limit alcohol intake at least a year before trying to conceive.

Work closely with your doctor: Make sure you inform your doctor of any symptoms you experience post-conception. Early detection of any condition or disease can prevent complications during pregnancy.

Conclusion:

Now you know how far in advance to prep your body for pregnancy. A year before trying to conceive can give you and your partner sufficient time to make all the necessary preparations.

A Water Filtration System - Clean water is vital for survival, and it's essential to have a filtration system to purify water in case of a disaster. It's smart to have a portable water filter that can be carried around in case you need to leave your home or travel, but you can also invest in a whole-house filtration system for convenience. Remember that it's important to check your filters regularly to ensure they're working correctly.

And a bonus - A First Aid Kit - I know that I've only shared the best 3 survival items, but I can't emphasize enough the importance of having a first aid kit.

What To Do If He Doesn't Understand Your Love Language

Blog Title: What To Do If He Doesn't Understand Your Love Language

Blog Introduction:

Hello, dear homemakers! Today, I wanted to talk about something that might come up in your lives as wives - how to deal when your spouse doesn't understand your love language.

As a traditional wife, we're all about building strong and loving relationships with our husbands. But sometimes it's hard to communicate exactly how we feel, especially if our spouse doesn't have the same language of love as we do.

Don't worry, though. In this blog post, we'll talk about what love languages are, how to identify yours (and your spouse's), and what to do if he doesn't quite "get it."

So, let's jump right in!

Blog Body:

First, let's discuss what love languages are. Love languages are the different ways that people give and receive love. According to Dr. Gary Chapman, there are five love languages: acts of service, quality time, physical touch, giving gifts, and words of affirmation.

Now, it's important to note that each person has a primary love language, which is the way they most feel loved. But just because someone's primary love language is different from ours, that doesn't mean they don't love us. It just means we need to communicate our love in a way that resonates with them.

So, the first step is to identify your own primary love language (and your husband's). Take Dr. Chapman's love languages quiz online to determine what each of your love languages is. Once you know what both of your love languages are, you can start to communicate with your spouse in a way that best resonates with them.

Now, let's talk about what to do if your husband doesn't "get it" when it comes to your love language.

The first thing to do is to talk to your partner about how important your love language is to you. Make sure they understand that it's not about being needy or demanding, but that you feel most loved when they speak your love language.

For example, if your primary love language is acts of service, you might feel most loved when your husband helps with the chores around the house. If he doesn't quite understand that, explain that it's not about the chores themselves, but about the effort he puts into showing his love for you.

If your husband is still struggling to understand, show him. Take charge and start speaking his love language more often. For example, if his primary love language is quality time, plan a date night or trip together so he can feel loved in his own way.

Additionally, it's important to be patient. Your husband may not understand your love language right away, but it's all about communication and compromise. Keep talking to him, keep showing him, and eventually, he will come to understand how important your love language is to you.

Conclusion:

In conclusion, dealing with a spouse who doesn't understand your love language can be challenging, but it doesn't have to be a deal-breaker. As homemakers, we know that communication and compromise are key components of a strong relationship.

Remember to identify your primary love languages, be patient with your partner, and show them love in a way that resonates with them. Most importantly, keep talking and keep showing love.

Your love language is a part of who you are, and it's worth communicating to your spouse. Embrace your differences and build a loving, long-lasting relationship.

The next step is to meet with the midwife team. This meeting is usually an opportunity to discuss concerns and ask questions.
