Pregnancy and delivery are a big deal. In recent years it has become more common for women to be prepared for the various changes that happen in the belly and pelvis after being pregnant. But there’s still a lot of mystery around how to make sure you heal fully!
It’s very common for women to feel (at any time after their pregnancy):
- digestive and urinary changes
- abdominal and/or pelvic pains
- scar numbness and pain (often at the same time)
- pain at the pubic bone (pubic symphysis)
- hardness of the belly, bloating, or swelling
- abdominal separation (diastasis)
- and more
You’re not alone.
Whether your pregnancy ended in miscarriage, a vaginal birth, or a cesarean birth, there is a lot that can be done to help you feel comfortable in your body once the dust has settled. Too often, after women are released from a doctor’s care at six weeks they are left feeling they just have to live with however their body feels at that time. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
While some women seem back to “normal” six weeks after their delivery or the end of their pregnancy, most women benefit from more specific care.
As you move from carrying your child inside your body to carrying and caring for your child outside your body, a lot of discomfort can arise. My work in-person and through my online programs here are meant to help.
