birthbabylife200x200Having a wonderful birth (and a healthy pregnancy) is never luck. In fact, it usually takes careful planning and purposeful choices.

In today's episode I read Corwin's birth story and then detail out some of the steps I took to have a good pregnancy and a wonderful, safe home birth. These steps go right to the beginning of my pregnancy, but many of them can be used no matter where you are in your own pregnancy!

In this episode I cover:

  • Reading Corwin's birth story
  • What you must do as soon as you get a positive pregnancy test
  • Why freezer meals aren't just for after you have the baby
  • The kind of food you should stock your cabinets, fridge, and freezer with
  • A vital thing moms-to-be skip (and how you can make sure you don't)
  • How to pinpoint the perfect prenatal exercise routine
  • What made me change my views on birth plans
  • Talking to your care provider about what you want (even if you're nervous)
  • Helping baby into a good position for labor
  • Why your should take a few minutes a day to “practice” for birth
  • A secret of top athletes – that you can use for childbirth
