Why You Need To Think About Having a C-Section

When I was pregnant, I was adamant that I would have a natural childbirth. Meaning, a non-medicated, vaginal birth. I wanted everything about my labor to be "natural".

3 Reasons BodyBoss Method is the Perfect Fitness Guide for Busy Moms

Ever since my son was born, I have had the hardest time finding a fitness regimen that works for me. While I have always battled my weight, prior to my son's birth losing weight was really not that difficult once I committed to doing it. If I focused on a healthier diet and added in some exercise, the weight would come off and I was in maintenance mode. But, now, I may get to the point of dropping a few pounds but then I immediately pack them back on (and then some!). I think this is due to a variety of reasons, some that are a little deeper than others. But, one of the reasons finding the perfect routine has been hard for is just because I'm so much busier now as a mom.
