Your best insurance is to enter labor in fine health.
Begin now—ideally before you wish to conceive.
21 days of repetition can make or break a habit.
Ask questions! Whenever you do not understand something or do not believe what you are hearing, seeing or reading, find someone to ask for information. Don’t stop asking until you feel “right”
Let the journey and this baby teach you
