How to Advocate for Your Pregnancy

How to Advocate for Your Pregnancy

Nat chats with twin mom Anna De Souza about how she advocated for herself in her twin pregnancy when many things went wrong. Anna had a very rocky pregnancy and she shares advice on how to advocate for your pregnancy when something isn’t right, how to get the most out of your doctor’s appointments, and how to have positive contact with office staff and nurses.
