Did you announce your pregnancy in a creative way? Do you have a gorgeous pregnancy photo to show off? Any sort of visual reflection of your pregnancy that you'd like to share? Post it here and you'll be entered to win!

 

The winning photo will receive the Dream Stand, Organic Hammock and Travel Bag (RRP: $460 USD) from Hushamok!

 

The Perfect Sleep
 
Transitioning from the womb to the real world can be hard for babies, so why not make it a whole lot easier with Hushamok. Their hammocks are a natural alternative to a baby bassinet or crib. With its natural swinging and rocking motion Hushamok hammocks induce sleep in babies and keep them asleep longer. They are also ideal for those babies that suffer from infant colic and reflux.
 
Mark and Julie Soboil founded Hushamok in 2006 after the birth of their first child, when a friend recommended a traditional baby hammock. The baby hammock worked wonders in soothing their restless and unsettled baby.

As much as they loved the concept of this 1000-year-old invention, they felt it needed updating to meet the demands of today’s parents.

With Mark and Julie’s backgrounds in Environmental Sciences and interest in using eco-friendly and organic materials, their journey to design modern baby furniture began. A year later Hushamok began selling its inaugural product, the Hushamok baby hammock.

Pregnancy made me feel more beautiful than any other time of my life.  There is something simply wonderful about being so full of life.

How we told friends on Facebook and Instagram that we were pregnant with #3 after almost a year of trying, longing, waiting.
