Would also do some light calisthenics such as pushups and squats. Do something you enjoy so you keep it up. But go slow. ...Read more

Why do people in the U.S. need medicine to have a safe pregnancy/delivery when women in other countries can do it without any doctors or medicine at all?

Its true that women in, say, Sierra Leone, frequently give birth without medicine or doctors but the maternal mortality rate is 40 times higher (11 per 1,000 women). It can (and is) being done but carries some risk. ...Read more
