Helpful article thanks. We’re near the start of a second pregnancy so it’s timely for us. I’ve been given a lovely book called ‘There’s a house in Mummy’s tummy’ which I’d recommend on helping explain pregnancy.

I’d love to hear from anyone who dealt with pregnancy complications and explaining these to a child. We’ve a high risk of early delivery, special care, the unknown – all making preparing my toddler more difficult.
