I wanted to take this week to thank all the female owned businesses, entrepreneurs and women working in women's health and perinatal health for all their collaboration, encouragement and support as I grow this business at my own pace. I have only had positive suggestions support and encouragement along the way. If you are surprised you are one here, never underestimate the power of providing support to someone. If for some reason I did not get your name on here, I humbly apologize and hope you know that I thank you in my heart of hearts. I also want to thank all my friends, family and husband for listening to my ideas, loving me through my struggles, and watching the kids so I can work on my own ME. I highly recommended these businesses as great places to get good care, education and support during pregnancy, birth recovery, and new parenting.
