That is awesome!!! Although, should I be offended they mentioned my screen name (Poppyseed) and not my son's name (Oscar)?!
I love that Sång made the list. Bless her little heart, she's already in print!

The even more ridiculous thing is I can labor in the regular bathtub, which is less than half of the size than the birth pool and even more difficult to get in and out of. (their fear is that it would be...
Yes, the belt has really helped. But also, the chiropractor worked miracles. This was my first time ever going to a chiro and I was pleasantly surprised! I'm in a lot of pain also after sitting and I think I'm going to invest in a doughnut for work. Embarrassing but necessary!
