A couple in Australia says it’s a bit of a bummer they can’t have their first child without a baby trunk, because they don’t have a baby belt.
The woman, who asked to remain anonymous, was born with a congenital heart condition and is now 29 weeks pregnant with her first child.
Ms Larkins said she’d never experienced any pain during pregnancy before, and was hoping to have a child without the need for a pregnancy belt.
But when she went into labour she was told she’d have to have one to be safe.
“I was so confused,” Ms Larkin said.
“What does a pregnancy trunk mean?”
“It’s the plastic bag that you put your baby in when you give birth.
It has an elastic band on it.”
“It is the little bag that we put our baby into,” Ms Jones said.
Ms Jones says her husband, a former postal worker, would be forced to use the trunk to hold their child.
“We would have to take the baby out of the trunk when we put it in,” she said.
‘Just a bit scary’ “I don’t know if we can afford to go through with this and it’s just a bit terrifying for us, so we just decided to get a baby strap instead.”
Ms Larks baby belt was made by a company in the US called Belt of Life.
Ms Kraszczyk says her experience was similar.
“It didn’t take too long to find it,” she told 7.30.
I didn’t have to look around at people saying, ‘oh, she’s got a baby!'” “
Then I went in and found the belt online and put him in.”

“There are so many other women out there who have the same experience.””
That’s really important,” she added.

If you have an opportunity to be a mum you should go for it.
