Los Alamos

Pregnancy and motherhood are journeys we sign onto for a lifetime. Think of the last journey you planned. How did you prepare? Did you read a book about your destination? Did you contemplate what to pack? Maybe, if the journey was physical you started training.

A sense of community and camaraderie is developed with other women going through the same experiences. Read More
