I am in tune with my body and my baby.

Are you listening to your body? What is it trying to tell you? Not quite sure? Then take a two-minute retreat from your day and listen, really listen. If you can, sit down somewhere comfortable and close your eyes. Breathe in slow and deep... breathe out just as long. Relax and try to quiet your stray thoughts. When you're ready, do a quick self-check of your body from head to toe. Are your feet sore? Are you hungry? Do you need to go outside? See something beautiful? Do you need a mental break from what you are doing? A physical break?

Sometimes women find it easier to sit down, close their eyes and ask their baby what they need. "What do you need right now, little one? Spinach salad with strawberries, red onions, feta and raspberry dressing? A tummy rub? A nap with your mama?"

Whatever you discover, make an effort to try and do what your body needs - what your baby needs. You'll be a happier, content mama with a happier, content baby.
