TC 028 Labor and Lunges: Pregnancy Fitness for Baby and Mommy

A birth story including nutrition, exercise, fertility, pregnancy fitness and of course a birth! I chat with Tatiana Amico about how a simple squat (ok, maybe not so simple when you are in labor!) affected her birth experience.

Tatiana is a mom to two and a woman’s health coach helping moms to have a life that kicks ass.
