Best Pregnancy Blogs 2023
Today, I want to share with you my top 12 best pregnancy blogs
for 2023. When you're pregnant you just want to soak up as much qualified, informative advice you can get. I enjoyed reading pregnancy blogs, but often found myself searching through all the articles wondering which ones I could trust.
I know first-hand that pregnancy and parenting can be daunting, to say the least. What I also found overwhelming was trying to navigate the wealth of information online. What to trust? Who to trust? What to avoid?
Why do I consider these blogs to be the best?
Well I have listed them based on my personal opinion but this list is also based on everything from popularity, how long the blogs have been around and the following criteria below. Oh, and I do constantly review the blogs to make sure they are maintaining their standards and meeting our expectations to remain on this list. Things do change!
My Favorite Pregnancy Blogs
- Consist of fact-based advice from expert writers.
- Provided insight as well as humor.
- Encouraged me to want to learn more.
- Weren't bombarding me with endless advertisements.
- Real stories without the clickbait headlines.
- Referenced medical journals.
- Had informative videos and quality content.
- Were regularly updated.
What About Medical Organisations?
I often reference the most trusted medical organisations and governing bodies when it comes to the more medical related questions I want answers to. These sites are not blogs, and they do not read as easily as blogs because they are written in more scientific style.
As always, your best source for trusted information will be your personal doctor or health care professional.
Here are three I recommend:
1. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists
2. The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists
So How Do You Choose the Best Pregnancy Blog for You?
I think this will come down to what you want. Each blog has its strengths and weaknesses. Some dedicate more time to parenting tips while others provide you with answers to your most important questions when pregnant.
My PregActive blog purely focuses on prenatal fitness
and health because that is our specific area of expertise. Myself and my team do not try to go outside the scope of our skills and knowledge. We are are known for being the 'go-to' source for everything health and fitness when pregnant and that's the way we want it to be.
