Dr. Molly Kallenbach has three children. She is an expert in pain management during pregnancy and delivery.
"It is essential that the body is functioning properly and at peak performance to minimize pain and difficulty during delivery," says Dr. Molly. "Flexible, supple muscles is a must."
Pregnancy is hard enough. Don't make it harder by not caring for yourself. If there is any time to take time for yourself, physically and mentally, it is while you are pregnant. It is possible that you be healthier than ever during and after your pregnancy.
The idea that your body must fall apart after you've had several babies is just not true. But in order to be even healthier after your delivery than you were before, you have to care for yourself more than ever. If you've neglected yourself in the past, then it is time to love yourself well.
Pregnancy massage is one way to do that. For other ways to be at peak performance during your pregnancy and delivery email Dr. Molly. She delivered all of her babies naturally and weighs 15 lbs less today than her wedding day.
