When it comes to preparing for childbirth, many of the moms that contact me are well organised when it comes to their medical needs. However, what I’ve noticed is that often a lot of simple planning gets missed, resulting in stress, worry and overwhelm once baby has arrived.

This week’s guest, Amanda Gorman is a mother of two and is a certified birthing from within childbirth educator. Amanda is passionate about helping moms prepare for childbirth and postpartum and offers loads of resources to help ease the load and get started creating a birth plan.
