[MUSIC] Hi guys. It's Kahlana. So I am pregnant and due to have a baby girl very soon. And my friend, Kelly Rowland, recommended me to her doula, Laurie Bergman. And Laurie works with celebrities like Molly Sims, Kristen Bell, Kelly Rowland and she just has a wealth of knowledge when preparing for child birth. So she has launched a book called The Mindful Mom To Be. And this book has truly been my Bible throughout my pregnancy. It has everything from meditation tips to exercises to check lists and what to pack in your hospital bag. Anything you need to know, it's in this book and I have literally flipped through the pages and just read it more than once because it's that good and it's really helping me prepare for what I'm about to experience. So I recommend this book to any mother who is expecting or anyone who is planning to have a baby at some point. I am obsessed. [MUSIC]
