I'm Pregnant! (1).png

Congratulations!

Ok, the stick turned pink or blue or gave a plus or a line, you figured out what meant which, peed on 1-5 more, and now you are certain. You're pregnant. Whether this is a surprise, a well-that-happened-fast, or a FINALLY!, the next thought is very likely, now what?

If you're like me you called your OB or Midwife asap only to be told to slow your roll. There isn't much to do yet...on their end. But  there is so much more to pregnancy and birth than we are lead to believe. If you are reading this, you already know that you have options and you are in control of the decisions you make, you just need help figuring out the HOW (any maybe the who, what, where, when, and why...don't worry, we'll cover that). 

To get your pregnancy and birth started in an informed, prepared, and confident direction, schedule an appointment today. I promise I won't spill the beans.
