Trimester 2 has come and gone and we’re very grateful that it went so smoothly.
Marni’s bump really popped early on this trimester and we’ve felt a ton of movement from TUB which made things feel even more real.
We cover a lot in this episode including red raspberry leaf tea, slowing down, diet & supplements, preparing for a natural home birth, pregnancy book recommendations, birth classes, and so much more.
