"Pregnancy, Childbirth, & Your Body
Over the past 9 months, your body has undergone numerous changes to accomplish the miracle of childbirth.
And over the next 9 months or so, your body will once again go through even more changes to get back to normal. Your center of gravity will change. Your hormone levels will change. Tissues will shrink, organs and bones will realign, and much more.
Throw in the fact that you’re constantly leaning over to pick up your baby, holding and/or breastfeeding your baby, carrying a car seat and baby bag – oh, and not to mention trying desperately to survive a state of pure exhaustion – and you can imagine the amount of stress your body will endure on a regular basis.
But that’s not the problem. Your body is an intelligent, natural healing machine that was built to withstand these incredible changes.
Here’s the problem…
The amount of stress on your body before, during, and after childbirth can leave your body open and susceptible to illness and disease. How? Because these changes radically affect the muscles, ligaments, tendons and bones in your body – especially in your spine.
