Pregnancy and Postpartum Care
Connie‘s motivational quote today is by – Harriette Hartigan
Giving birth and being born brings us into the essence of creation, where the human spirit is courageous and bold and the body, a miracle of wisdom.”
If you are a parent, you know the biggest change we experience in life, is the day our babies are born! The overwhelming immediacy of unconditional love is an extraordinary emotion that really can’t be duplicated – unless you have another child!
Along with the intense emotions of love also comes an intense sense of worry and doing it correctly…right? The problem is our babies do not come out with an owner’s manual!
Beyond the excitement of being pregnant, many questions and options are presented for the parents to be. This labyrinth of options are daunting and of course we want to make the best choices for the unborn child and ourselves. So where do we find this vital information? You guessed it – our guest today is going to uncover ways to make the best decisions for you and your child.
