“The women I know aren’t gaining… They need to know how important it is to gain.”

“I know three pregnant women who have pictures of models on the inside of their kitchen cupboards so when they open the cupboard they don’t eat so much.”

“The Hollywood stars give a false impression of what a pregnant lady should look like.”
