Understanding Your Body After Pregnancy: A Guide for the Everyday Mum
Congratulations on the birth of your beautiful baby, Mumma! Your body has just gone through a huge transition, physically, emotionally and mentally. You might feel as though it was beaten and broken during the labour and birthing process. You might be feeling in awe of what your body has done when you thought there was no way you could get through it. Perhaps you’re feeling proud or maybe you are feeling deflated as your birth did not go to plan. With the birth of your baby comes a whole new range of questions and feelings. It is important to nurture yourself during this time so that you can recover and also to be able to provide the best possible start to life to the newest member of your family.
