About Bud to Blossom
Bud to Blossom is a pregnancy journal for mums-to-be to pen down their experiences, emotions, milestones, and memories during the course of their pregnancy. This pregnancy journal offers plenty of space to write their most intimate feelings as an expecting parent, as well as document special moments (like ultrasound photos and bump dates) along their 9-month journey.
Jungmin’s pregnancy experience
In Korea, every baby gets a diary given by the hospital for expecting parents to record down doctor’s visits, ultrasound scans and my husband and I even wrote down letters and thoughts during the pregnancy. The diary also included tips and information on what to expect during pregnancy, so it was really useful for me. Now, this diary has become one of our family’s treasures as we take it out from time to time to look back at the experience. My girls enjoy reading the diary and learn about how we felt as expecting parents and the nicknames we call them while they were still in my tummy!
What's special about this pregnancy journal?
Compared to many journals out there, Bud to Blossom offers nuggets of information like weekly pregnancy symptoms, sleep training tips, baby and mummy skincare and even breastfeeding tips for new mums.
The journal prompts mums to get creative with their train of thoughts through a myriad of questions including how they found out about the pregnancy, who they first told the news to, mummy's & daddy's letter to baby and many more. The journal is thoughtfully planned by trimesters with weekly pages to document the experience as well as symptoms to expect and tips to manage common concerns. It also includes fruit and veggie size comparisons of the growing baby along the way.
Features of journal:
- Sectioned by trimesters with tips on what to expect

It is a collaborative effort between Ksisters, Dawn from @daprayerdesigns who designed the journal, Dr Jade Kua, a paediatric emergency specialist & life coach (@drjadekua) who vet the medical tidbits and Zoe Chu, a baby & adult sleep expert (@sgsupernanny) who provided sleep training tips.
Dawn is a mama of two little kids - Laurent and Elise. She is also a dreamer, a lover of beauty, and someone who seeks calmness and peace in the world of loud, noisy distractions.
She picked up calligraphy when she was pregnant with her first child, Laurent, as she wanted to have a quiet hobby which she can turn to for me-time and reflection.
She went on to pick up lettering and illustrating over the years and incorporated them to create artworks in which she hope to bring love and encouragement to people who receive them. Her design brand, Daprayer Designs, is started with the intention to let these artworks of love and encouragement reach more people.
Dawn majored in Psychology when she was in university and the things she learnt during her studying years, experiences during her internships and the stories of people whom she knows personally have sparked a desire in her to pursue a cause in mental health, particularly women and kids mental health, through her designs and products.
She hopes that this journal will be a beautiful, personal space for mamas-to-be to share your every little thoughts, clear your head space from the to-do lists and note down all the sweet moments that you will experience during your special pregnancy journey.
You can follow Dawn's motherhood journey on @daprayer and her design account where she offers freebies, gifts and stationery items on @daprayerdesigns.
