Thank you to Mirum for partnering on today’s post. As always, all thoughts, opinions, and styling are my own.
You’ve probably heard about all the different ways that having a baby will change your life (and body), and while it’s not all bad, there have definitely been some surprises I didn’t expect! Weight gain, swelling – let’s not even get into the changes that breastfeeding causes – all of which are pretty normal. I fully expected it’d take time for my body to get back into the swing of things. But I didn’t realize that some things would NOT go back to normal even now 10 months post pregnancy. I thought it would be helpful to share these things for several reasons:
• To give future or expecting mamas a realistic look at postpartum body changes
• To reassure current mamas that you’re not going through it alone
Again, these are things that no one really told me. I had to Google a few of them, and once I mentioned them on IG Stories, I realized that there were SO many people who had similar experiences! I’m also sharing a product recommendation that has given me relief for one of them – and I’d love for you to share if you have experienced any of the below or found products that have helped!
