From Womb to World: The Journey That Shapes Our Life.
Throughout my years of being a certified birth doula and a certified child birth educator, I've been asked a ton of question from my expecting moms, like:
When should I make an appointment to see a doctor?
What about health insurance?
What's the difference between a doctor and a midwife?
How much weight should I gain?
Now that I am pregnant, how is my body going to change?
When will this morning sickness end?
What should I eat?
What can I take for my headache?
Is there anything I should avoid?
What tests do I have to do?
How will I know I'm in labor?
Am I having contractions?
What can I do to get through labor?
Should I hire a doula?
Everyone wants to tell me about their birth stories…should I listen to them?
How can I avoid postpartum depression?
The list goes on and on. It was all of these questions that made me think that I needed to get information out to more and more moms. And so, here you will find answers to all of these questions and more. If you're an expecting mom, I'm pretty sure this is gonna be helpful!
