Why Doesn’t My Family Support My Natural Birth Goals?

Dreaming of your perfect natural birth and not having the support of those around you? This can be a very hard place to be and can only add stress to what should be a beautiful experience of growing and bonding with your baby.

3 of my favorite resources to share….

Last week I shared how important it is to always keep learning and how that realization came to me as a brand new parent caring for our tiny little girl.

Women are having babies later in life at a much higher rate now and if you connect with women who had a strong belief in their bodies, you will find that they didn’t have a rough pregnancy or had anything high risk about their pregnancy, like me.
