The Postpartum Mom...
No one tells you how disconnected you will feel from your postpartum body...
The loose skin, sagging tummy.
Your body doesn't look the way it did before and it seems like it never will feel like home again.
Or the struggle to do basic things like sit up, stand up to cook dinner.
Your body feels weak and it seems hopeless that it can ever feel strong and capable.
Diastasis Recti? What is that? Organs falling out? Just get surgery. Sound familiar?
No one addresses how you have to mentally talk yourself into wanting to do basic things.
You're exhausted. The to-do list is long and you are the last thing on it with no idea how to begin putting yourself higher on the list.
You join the groups, scroll google, read things that promise big things while conflicting with other big promises so who know what truth is.
But also, what happens if it doesn't work or when the program is done?
It is overwhelming for you to even try to dig through the endless articles and fitpros on social media and the cost coupled with uncertainty of it all makes it a gamble not worth taking.
So, you stay stuck.
I Have Been There...
I can remember looking at my body after having my daughter feeling like a stranger within myself.
Everything was challenging physically because of my weakened core and pelvic floor but I also felt ashamed of my changed body.
I also remember not knowing who I was. I prayed for a baby and here she was but I didn't know who I was.
I knew who I wanted to be but had no idea how to get there as I was deep in the throws of postpartum depression, exhausted from sleep deprivation and overwhelmed.
So I ran, literally, to find home again within myself assuming that throwing my body into fitness would restore what I felt I lost but it did the opposite.
My body shut down, worsening my feeling of overwhelm and being lost within myself.
I constantly felt as if I was failing.
As a wife, as a mother and within my own skin.
There is HOPE. There is AFTER
Your postpartum body doesn't need to be beaten back to a size or shape, shamed for the cookies or to dismiss the fears and overwhelm.
Your postpartum body needs to be seen, nourished and supported in a way that acknowledges its story while supporting the vision of who you want to be.
After this epiphany, creating Heal & Seal, exploring the WHY behind my thoughts, actions and taking action, I had my son.
Postpartum with him was refreshing.
I felt in control of my postpartum body. I knew how to connect to it and understood the steps of healing.
I saw the journey it had taken, appreciated it and knew the journey I needed to walk and did so with confidence as I grew stronger and more capable every week.
My body is stronger than it has ever been. Not just my core, pelvic floor and physique, but me on the inside.
I can feel when my body is in need and I know how to figure out what it needs and give it to it.
I am confident in who I am as a mother, as a wife, as a business owner. I know that even though I will hit rough patches, those moments do NOT define me.
I have a game plan for those trenches, giving myself space to grow from them and continue moving forward because those trenches DO come.
