Former AFLW player Moana Hope prepares to present birth to second child as she goes into labour

Former AFLW player Moana Hope is preparing to welcome her second child. 

The 34-year-old, who’s married to model Isabella Carlstrom, shared photos of herself in hospital before giving birth as she went into labour.

Within the photos, she was joined by her first child, daughter Svea, while sitting on a stretcher along with her belly out.

‘Svea feeding her mumma to be certain she will get through what’s about to come back,’ Moana captioned it, before adding: ‘Go time.’

It comes after Hope opened up concerning the challenges of parenthood, her pregnancy and her favourite things about being a mum to a toddler.  

She told 9honey her biggest parenting ‘fail’ was being an excessive amount of of a ‘safety mum’ and needed to stop ‘overthinking’ her parenting style to follow her ‘mother’s intuition’.

‘I’ve had to actually let go of my ‘safety mum’ because Svea might be going to be a red bull athlete sooner or later because she climbs all the things,’ the soon to be mum-of-two said.

‘It’s not likely a fail however it’s definitely something I’ve needed to adapt to be certain I’m not stopping Svea from becoming whoever she desires to be.’

Moana and Isabella, who tied the knot in 2019, went through IVF to conceive each Svea and baby number two using the identical donor.

Isabella gave birth to Svea in November 2020 and now Moana is carrying their second child.

During her first pregnancy, Moana said she received some sound advice from a follower on Instagram that modified her outlook on parenting.

‘I used to be reading every book, listening to each podcast, taking everyone’s advice but the most effective advice I ever got was from a woman on Instagram and she or he said ”just let your mother’s intuition take over,” she explained.

‘We put down the books and turned off the podcasts and just became parents and it was the most effective change we made.’

Moana said her favourite thing about pregnancy was feeling all of the ‘kicks’ and ‘movements’ from the infant and said while having two babies under two could also be a frightening task, she’ll be enlisting all the assistance she will get from her wife and sister Lavinia.

The retired footy player is the only carer of 29-year-old Lavinia, or ‘Vinny’ for brief, who has a rare neurological condition called Moebius syndrome.

Moana recently said that her biggest parenting 'fail' was being too much of a 'safety mum' and had to stop 'overthinking' her parenting style to follow her 'mother's intuition'
