Pregnancy is a time of great change. Your body has a limited time to grow a tiny human, an extra organ, deal with the changes to your hormonal makeup, shift your center of gravity and increase your blood flow by an extra quarter. This is all before we take into account the mental, emotional and spiritual shifts that happen in order to accommodate a new family member and the beginning of a new journey.
