Pregnancy: it is the best of times, it is the worst of times

While it is amazing to feel those little kicks and know you’re growing a tiny human, it can be HARD work.

The nausea (and vomiting)
The never ending bathroom breaks
The heartburn
The swollen feet
The sleepless nights
The back ache
The pubic ache
The headaches
The hemorrhoids
The blotchy skin
The discharge
The stretch marks
The constipation
The sore, leaky boobs
The leg cramps
The weird cravings
The breathlessness
The Braxton Hicks
The peeing when you sneeze (or cough or laugh)

Sometimes being pregnant sucks. And while everyone else is telling you “it’ll be worth it” , your doula will listen to you and help you figure out what to do with it all. Objectively. With no judgment.
