Pregnancy can change women. Having a small human growing inside us can affect us physically, emotionally, and mentally. During this phase, many of us set aside self care as we adjust to our pregnancy. However, some of us manage to adjust and celebrate this new experience.

In this episode, I talk with my good friend Chambrie about how her pregnancy has changed her. She and I share our woes, unusual cravings, self care practices, and ways to connect with our babies. We also discuss the importance of asking for help from our family and friends.
