Pregnancy and preparation often go hand-in-hand for first-time parents. From conception to birth, what does the journey of becoming mum entail? How does a wife prepare herself to become mum? What are the thoughts and emotions that one thinks and feels in anticipation of becoming a parent? What would parenthood take?

Joining our host, Joanna Koh-Hoe, is married couple Aaron and Joy-Anne Ng who are expecting their first child! Aaron and Joy-Anne share their authentic story through 14 years of marriage - journeying through Endometriosis, a loss, and finally anticipating the birth of their baby.

"...what helped me prepare even right now is, we need to be in the present moment together and not looking for what could have been or what would have been but it's to enjoy the process together."


This Mother’s Day, we want to encourage mums that through the mundane, routine, chaotic and joyful moments of motherhood, Every Season Matters!
