Q&A With Margaret And Bethany
Margaret and Bethany bring their education, knowledge on motherhood, and medical advice to the forefront. We virtually sat down with them for some Q&A. And they were able to answer some of our readers questions about the current quarantine. Along with how they are dealing with home schooling.
