I so wanted to have a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) after my two C-sections. I had already had two successful vaginal childbirths. It wasn't out of the question. I tried to set the stage for that kind of...
How do you show up? I'm talking about your posture. Take a look. Stand in front of the mirror. What do you see?   I remember seeing my reflection in a window when my youngest was an infant. Rounded shoulders. Head forward. Is...
