How many times have you heard the phrase, BOUNCE BACK🖐?
It’s a popular saying when it comes to getting back to the way things were. But for life after baby, it really doesn’t make sense. 🧐
🤰Birthing a baby brings on significant changes, physically and mentally. Those changes are part of what makes bringing our children into the world possible. Our bodies may experience negative changes or trauma from scarring, tearing or hemorrhaging, while our mental state may struggle with hormonal ups and downs.
But with the bad comes the good.🤩 Our bodies were able to create, nurture and give birth life, while our brains saw psychological and structural changes that allowed us to adapt, connect and care for this new life.
💫 So bouncing back would imply going back to a “better time”. When moving forward, better expresses the truth: learning to love and accept our new self, while working to care for, heal and admire all we’ve survived.
💕 If you’re wondering when you’ll feel like yourself again after birth, know what kinds of change to expect and how to prepare for this postpartum period, so you can move forward through motherhood!💕
