Episode Info: Happy New Year everyone, and thank you so much for sticking with me through 50 episodes! It's been such a rewarding journey, and I love being of service to you all.  I thought I would kick off this year with ten pieces of advice that I hope will help you in pregnancy, birth, and life beyond. I want to share ten of the things I think are most important for not only having a healthy and happy pregnancy & birth, but for building a fulfilling life, too.  We'll start off with some practical advice like how to make sure you're getting the best care possible from your doctor or midwife, and what to do if you have concerns about your care. We will also talk about why I think all moms should rethink their baby registry & shower, and how to prepare for the postpartum transitions you'll experience. We'll finish up with some advice about life in general and talk about why it's so important to take great care of yourself. The first step in raising a healthy child is being a healthy mom - and that means physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I'm wishing all of you a wonderful 2020!
