Planning for Baby's arrival? You've got the nursery figured out, registered and gathered the essentials, and you're meeting weekly with your birthing team to monitor your baby's health and development. During pregnancy, your health gets a lot of attention. Then once Baby comes all the sudden it's on the back burner. For most women, postpartum recovery isn't on their radar. Everything will just go back to normal, right? Don't we wish.
Most women have unrealistic expectations for post-natal health and functionality. Sadly, this sets her up for disappointment, instead of awe and appreciation for the birth her body just performed. But not you. You've decided you want something different for your postpartum health. And it all starts with becoming informed.
How will birth impact you physically, mentally, and emotionally?
Possible changes you might face after the baby comes:
- Digestive issues and constipation
- Abdominal weakness
- Back pain
- Urinary leaking
- Difficulty returning to exercise
How do those issues, if unaddressed, impact you in the long term?
- Prolapsed uterus or bladder
- Diastesis recti - aka "Mommy Tummy"
- Worsened urinary incontinence
- Chronic back pain
- Sexual dysfunction
Not the most hopeful list to read, right? Although this seems alarming -- good news! These issues are preventable! Learn how to avoid them with the Self-Care Survival Guide for Expecting Mommies Online Course.
