Your body after baby

loading...
Postpartum is so.many.things... there is not one part of us that is untouched after we've had a baby. When I was pregnant for the first time, no one prepared me for the profound impact postpartum & motherhood would have on my mental health, my sense of self, my hormones, my body, my day to day life, my relationships, my sex life ... it reaches EVERYTHING.
Fast forward to 6 months after my second baby…I was in a hellish cycle of sleep deprivation, I was not feeling myself, my toddler was turning 3, there was no time for me, no time for us, our relationship was strained, there was nothing left to give, I wanted to move my body but I had no energy and didn’t know where to start, I didn’t recognize my life anymore, my body felt foreign, grief was bubbling up, I was anxious more often than not and I had MAJOR guilt for not “enjoying” my time with my girls because I was just so overwhelmed. Things were starting to unravel on me…

Here's the thing...

We are in a world where Motherhood looks and seems PERFECT, where you are never doing enough, where you are doing it wrong, where you are silenced in your experience because "at least you & baby are healthy", where nobody gives you permission to not be ok, where you suffer in silence because you think you are the only one, where you feel lost and alone...
