Healthy Natural Pregnancy (The Ultimate Health Podcast)

Jan 8, 2016 | Joy McCarthy

I am elated to have been invited back on The Ultimate Health Podcast to chat with my friends, Marni and Jesse, about all things natural pregnancy! After having given birth to my beautiful baby girl, Vienna, last September 2015, I'm grateful to have been given the opportunity to share my story of natural pregnancy from pre-conception to balancing work-life with a new baby.
