When I was pregnant with my second baby, Henry, I knew that I wanted my birth to be different than my first (You can read about both of my birth experiences in my Epidural VS Unmedicated birth series). I wanted to feel in control, and empowered by my birth experience, and ultimately thats how I felt during and after Henry's birth. It was also an incredibly fast birth (less than an hour from beginning of active labor until birth), which was something that I had really been hoping for.
What's better than chocolate mousse? How about chocolate mousse with gut healing properties, and probiotics! I'm always looking for treats to make for my littles that will be good for them, and won't make me feel guilty, and this one definitely fits the bill.

Dry brushing has become really popular. It seems like everyone I follow online is doing it... but why? And how? Read on, and I'll share with you the benefits of dry brushing, and the correct way to do it!
Welcome to part three of my series: Epidural VS Unmedicated Birth!
If you read the first two posts, you know that my two birth experiences were completely different. My first was an induction with an epidural, and my second was a totally unmedicated birth without so much as an IV port. There are pros and cons to both in my opinion, and I want to share my thoughts on that with you.
Welcome to part two of my epidural vs unmedicated three part series!
As I mentioned in part one, my goal of this series is to share my two very different experiences as a resource for expecting Mamas. There is no right or wrong way to birth, and every Mama and pregnancy are different. You have options, and you should feel free to birth in whatever way you choose!
Now, let's get down to it.
