What I’m going to be sharing with you here is essentially redefining the period that is postpartum.
I want to talk about the postpartum period, and how it does not last for just six weeks, I will tell you upfront, that postpartum last an upwards of six years.
And this really shouldn’t be a shocker because every woman who has ever birthed a baby will tell you that they are not fully healed at the six-week mark.
Most women can attest to not ever feeling like a “normal human being” until their child reaches a certain level of independence when they’re able to take a step back and truly ask how they are doing.
This is when the healing process really begins for most women instead of earlier because we have been trained as mothers that everyone else’s needs come before our own. So buckle up and get ready to deep dive into the postpartum period after having a baby.
