Getting your body back into shape after pregnancy can feel like an impossible task. But, the first thing you need to know and be convinced of is that your body has been through a monumental task and succeeded beautifully, give it some credit!
Whether you are giving birth for the first time or the fourth, it’s a good idea to consider all your options and decide on a birthing situation that will benefit you the best. For some women, this means a hospital birth. You have immediate access to experts and equipment in a hospital, even if it isn’t the prettiest surroundings. Other women prefer to be in the comfort of their homes. This article gives you a brief overview of birthing options to discuss further with your midwife.
Pregnancy will change your body in ways you could never have expected. It seems as though, every day, you discover something new that has changed in you once you become pregnant.
Struggling with low self-esteem during pregnancy is not as uncommon as you may think. Many people seem to believe that you should be on top of the world when you’re expecting. The reality is that is not always the case. Everyone seems to know about post-natal depression, but your mood can also be affected a lot when you’re pregnant too. You will have high days and low days, so much so that you may feel on the edge of tears and have no understanding as to why. Your body is going through a huge change.
Your due date is anything but predictable. In fact, it is totally unpredictable. Every birther (birthing person) is a unique human with a unique story, carrying a unique person. Each birth unfolds uniquely, and the individual process is special and beautiful.
