In this episode, we are continuing our discussion of what NOT to say to pregnant woman. This includes discussing if a woman is too young/old to be pregnant, how much a woman weighs or is gaining during her pregnancy, and we share some horror stories we found online from real moms who had their own “what not to say” moment. Finally, we thought we should share what you SHOULD say to a pregnant woman. Another fun, interesting discussion that gets us fired up! So grab a tasty beverage or slushie and enjoy.

You have probably heard one before…”you can’t be having a girl, you are carrying too low” or “don’t cut a baby’s hair too soon, it won’t grow back”, old wives’ tales that have been passed down through generations. Do any of these “tales” have an ounce of truth to them? In this episode we cover old wives’ tales for conception, pregnancy, and taking care of infants and these tales are pretty funny. We also discuss some of their origins and whether or not they are completely false. Grab yourself a snack and drink and see if you have heard any of these before. Also, feel free to share any tales we didn’t cover by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
