009: The Second Trimester

The Second Trimester

Trimester two was definitely a highlight for me and I am so grateful that it went so smoothly.

I cover so much in this episode including when my bump really popped, feeling the baby’s first movements and the heartbeat, red raspberry leaf tea, slowing down, diet & supplements, preparing for a natural home birth, pregnancy book recommendations, birth classes, and so much more.
