    Maternal changes in pregnancy | Reproductive system physiology | NCLEX-RN | Khan Academy

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, Neon Genesis Evangelion, One Punch Man; these anime are all eminently accessible. They speak to a primal part of our brain that wants to see cool people do cool things and…

What people are looking for and what they want out of that experience. And trying to meet together where our common goal is going to be to have a healthy mom and a healthy baby and having…
