I’m 18 years old, pregnant, and in pursuit of a natural childbirth. Given my current financial situation, it’s a pretty ambitious goal.

Although natural childbirth is becoming more popular, the statistics indicate that for many expecting mothers on state insurance the birthing experience is anything but natural. An alarming amount of women report being corralled through a very regimented system with little to no choice on the level of intervention taking place. This blog is a chronicle of my attempt to avoid that.

In addition, I will be sharing the traditional struggles of diet and exercise during pregnancy.
