Pregnancy & Birth of Multiples

I'm a mother of triplets. It's completely overwhelming when you're told that you have more than one baby in your belly. It's something that nobody can understand unless they have carried as many babies (or more) as you at one time. It takes a different kind of mama to navigate the journey of motherhood with multiples. 

I can speak your language and will guide you to be able to fully grasp the wild and wonderful life of carrying, delivering, and mothering multiples.
