Everything I Ever Needed To Know About Health, I Learned From Being Pregnant
I've been a fitness professional for nearly two decades. I've learned the foundations of fitness from conferences to books to certifications. But it wasn't until I became pregnant with my first child that I realized what it meant to take care of my health. It changed my perspective on everything. I ate to fuel my body, my baby.

I meditated more and took time to breathe....
