From Womb to World: The Journey That Shapes Our Life.
Throughout my years of being a 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?
- When will I be showing?
- How much weight should I gain?
- When will this morning sickness end?
- What should I eat?
- 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?
- What questions should I ask?
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!
