Birth Prep Tip #2 – Part 1
Find Symmetry In Your Pelvis My second birth prep tip is going to come out in 2 parts. We have to talk a bit more pelvic anatomy and birth physiology before I can give you some tips on what to do! Let’s start by talking a little bit about the actual “birth” process and […]
