Congratulations! For the next 280 days, your body will undergo some momentous changes as it grows and accommodates a tiny human...or humans as the case may be.
The pregnancy period includes everything from the 1st trimester to labor & delivery, which is perhaps the most physically demanding challenge your body will ever go through.
Pregnancy is an immensely exciting time, full of anticipation as you prepare for baby’s arrival. But it also comes with lots of emotional peaks and valleys (thank you, hormones!) in addition to brand new physical sensations. Your body is incredibly smart and powerful, navigating much of this process with ease. Your job becomes keeping this process running smoothly and your body and baby safe, comfortable, nourished, and calm.
This is a season of leaning into these changes, listening to what your body needs, and curating the right care team to help make this very special time more joyful.
As labor and delivery approach, and that belly gets bigger and more cumbersome, it’s reassuring to have a team assembled who will provide physical, emotional, and mental guidance during the birth process, however, the process may unfold.
Growing and delivering a baby into the world is hard work, but surrounding yourself with the right people will enable you to feel healthy, prepared, and empowered.
While we hope that all pregnancies are healthy and go to term, miscarriages and loss can happen. It’s even more important to seek care from a team of experts that can help you process and heal from this heartbreak during this time.
