How can I create an effective birthing plan and be in charge of my hospital birth? How I can overcome postpartum depression without medication?

It has been astounding and very exciting,” said Jana Roberts, co-founder of the conference. “This conference will offer so much wisdom and knowledge for pregnant women and mothers.”rOne of the best parts of the conference will be the panels. There will be two panels with midwives, doulas, nutritionists, a chiropractor and an herbalist where people can ask their personal and individual questions.
