Pregnancy is one of life’s miracles. You are growing a life, a child inside your body. It’s incredible. I’ve been pregnant 3 times and given birth to three little people and it still amazes me to no end.

Sure there are discomforts, the weight gain, the swollen ankles, the need to use the washroom every ten minutes – but the end result is the best gift you will ever receive. Gosh I think I’m convincing myself to have another!

2Joints Soften

 

In order to prepare your body for birth, it produces a hormone called relaxin which softens your ligaments. This softening helps your baby pass through your pelvis during labor. Amazing isn’t it?
