“I just wish I had less help,” said no pregnant woman ever. Whether you’re a first-time mom or adding another little one to your clan, pregnancy can be both exciting and frustrating — especially when Googling every symptom only brings on a zillion more questions. That’s where a doula comes in, and that’s what our latest episode of The SASS is all about.
Susan Yara and Sharzad Kiadeh sat down with celebrity doula Lori Bregman, author of The Mindful Mom to Be and the right-hand woman to stars like Molly Sims, Kristen Bell, and Kelly Rowland during their pregnancies. Here, she reveals the difference between a doula and midwife, how a doula can help mamas-to-be before and after their pregnancy, and more.
Watch the full video below, then scroll down for Bregman’s delicious juice recipe for fighting morning sickness naturally.

Celery (rich in minerals like potassium and magnesium and aids digestion)
Ginger (soothes stomach)
Lemon juice (tartness and scent help relieve nausea)
