People give advice because they want to help. They think they have some information that you need to hear. It doesn’t matter if they are educated about pregnancy or birth. Everyone has an opinion or advice and a lot of people feel compelled to share it with you. Even when you do not ask for it. People who give unsolicited advice are coming from a good place.

This is the challenge. Get tips and tactics to deal with unsolicited advice when you are pregnant.
