My 25 Minute Natural Home Birth

First post of 2018 and I wanted to start it with my natural birth story. When I asked some of you last year if you wanted to know about my home birth, so many of you said that you did. And so here it is! It's a bit of a long post, so make sure you get comfy!

This pregnancy was unlike all my other 3 pregnancies as I usually tend to feel much better towards the end. However this time around, I was super emotional and exhausted for the entire pregnancy. I hardly had any physical strength left, and I wasn't mentally prepared to face the labour, AT ALL.

Why Clean Eating Is The Real Deal

Clean eating in my opinion, is a diet that consists of eating foods in their most natural state, without heavy processing or the addition of preservatives, chemicals or pesticides. So this would mean eating a diet that consists of fresh organic food like fruit, vegetables & meat; foods that don’t come in packages (albeit not all packaged foods are bad for you, you should always check the ingredients for any added nasties). In other words, eat what your grandmama used to eat.
