We're sharing our most downloaded episode in 2023! 🎉Most births are not like the movies. They don’t typically start with a massive gush of water followed by insanely intense contractions that have mom rushing to the hospital. 🚑 That’s not to say a birth can’t start with your waters breaking and even immediate contractions, but most often, you’re going to have some time to ease into labor. With that in mind, I’m going to walk you through what you can expect with those first contractions, what you can do to help manage them as they increase in intensity and consistency, and how you can easily keep track if you want to. 📝Links Mentioned:My Essential Birth CourseMy Essential Birth InstagramContraction Timer & Counter 9mContraction Timer - Time LaborFull Term - Contraction TimerGET IN TOUCH! 🤩Reach out at any time to hello@myessentialbirth.com.

one more thing worth noting about VAERS: ANYONE can make a report and they don't have to provide proof. So not all of the reports are factual. Some are left by trolls (people trying to be funny or who like to stir the pot), some are left by people with political agendas (anti-vaxxers, etc.), and some are left by conspiracy theorists and hypochondriacs. You can look at specific reports and many of them are obviously false.

Hpatitis B is not just sexually transmitted. Also, the reason the hep B vaccine is given so early is because it provides the best lifetime protection when given early.
