Fitness During Pregnancy

As a childbirth educator and doula, I have always maintained a holistic mind frame of the human body and its functions. When I am teaching a childbirth education class or attending a birth as a doula, I am always amazed at how every function of our bodies has a purpose. During my classes, I work hard to convey how body and mind work together in both pregnancy and birth. Maintenance and preparation for this dual relationship between mind and body is just as vital.

How does exercise and fitness play a role in a healthy pregnancy?

How to Handle UTIs

When you begin experiencing the burning urgency to open your bladder, despite having just gone to the bathroom, there’s a good chance your mind goes right to a urinary tract infection (UTI). UTIs are common but nonetheless irritating. It’s tempting to reach for a bottle of cranberry juice, take some over-the-counter (OTC) meds and ride it out, but these methods will not get rid of an infection and may simply mask symptoms.

Understanding Hypertension

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is very common among adults. Despite how many people have high blood pressure, many are unaware they even have it because it’s often experienced without any symptoms at all, only identified only through a blood pressure reading. And while blood pressure readings can be conveniently measured at home, many adults are unfamiliar with what to look for and how to translate the results.
