How it all started

I’m going to lead you through the story of how I started as an insecure young mother to a strong and confident woman. So, I’m 21 with a boyfriend that I love, but I’ve only known him for a few months. Things are, of course, exciting between us. New love is one of the best things to experience.

It was close to getting out of hand, then I calmed down, and now at the end of this pregnancy a dirty house drives...

I have been having back pain for most of the second half of my pregnancy, and just recently found that my baby is in posterior position. So, my midwife recommended a chiropractor.
