As a pregnant woman you are being invited to reinvent yourself, because when a baby is born so is a mother. And I'm going to let you in on a secret... the birth of a mother can be more intense than childbirth.
Our culture is fixated on birth, mostly based on fear and anxiety. I want to introduce you to next stage of your journey through motherhood.
