With beauty, serenity, and open arms, Elaina Bellis lets me into her home to speak a little bit about her pregnancies, hardships, wellness regiments, and favorite foods. As a healthy mother of two beautiful one year old twin girls, she has a great deal of insight about the benefits of acupuncture and other wellbeing regiments during and after her births.
