May 4, 2011 - PRLog -- As part of ongoing research into the parenting habits of Britons, the UK’s leading discount website, http://www.MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, conducted a study of 1,173 mothers across the UK in a bid to discover what preparations they made whilst pregnant and expecting their first child.

The study, conducted by http://www.MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, asked the respondents to select all that applied from a list of possible preparations that they may have taken when pregnant and getting ready for the arrival of their first child.

According to the research by http://www.MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, almost a tenth, 9%, of the mothers asked ‘learnt to drive’ when pregnant in preparation for their first born. When asked to explain why they waited until they were pregnant to learn to drive, 29% said it ‘wasn’t necessary’ for them to drive before pregnancy and without children.

The study by http://www.MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, found that a further 12% of the respondent took ‘cookery classes’ when expecting their first born; with the ‘inability to cook’ being the reason for the majority (51%). 23% of the mothers who admitted to having cookery classes said they did so out of ‘boredom’.

As well as cookery classes, a further 17% of the respondents ‘learnt to sew’ during their first pregnancy, almost a third, 31%, of which stated that they did so, so that they could ‘repair clothing’ that their impending child might damage.

Furthermore, 71% of the mothers who took part in the study admitted that they ‘read pregnancy and baby books’  when they were expecting their first child; the majority of which, 69%, said they did so in order to be able to ‘cope better’ once their unborn child arrived.  

Mark Pearson, chairman of http://www.MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, said the following,

“Preparing for a baby and nesting when pregnant is perfectly normal and it is great that so many mothers leave their comfort zone and try something new all in a bid to improve the lifestyle of their baby. I wasn’t surprised by the number of mothers who read pregnancy books whilst expecting, but it was quite interesting that the majority did so in order to ‘cope’ better, instead of just out of curiosity and to learn.”

He continued,

“Preparing for a newborn can be a pricey time for a couple, especially if they are going to extra lengths and taking up classes such as cookery lessons! Sites such as MyVoucherCodes.co.uk are great way to save on the expenses involved. The site offers discounts on a great variety of child friendly products, from nappies and children’s clothing to toys and nursery furniture.”
