***WARNING: THIS IS REAL AND RAW INFORMATION! ***
"Education often creates a sense of confidence and empowerment, which reduces the fear, thus lowering the unpleasantness of the sensations you may experience."
They are WAY more comfortable and easier to wear! Simple as that. I wish I could just wear them every day! I got Always Discreet Incontinence Underwear. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
Night sweats are common in the days and weeks after birth. Normally it’s not a sign of a more serious medical issue but if your sweating persists for longer, you should contact your doctor to make sure you don’t have any sort of infection or other complications.

This could be part of PPD or “postpartum depression.” For most people, when you hear or read that you think of feeling sad or hopeless, but depression can also include
Anger can come out as:
Anger is a troubling symptom of PPD because it’s scary, and usually uncharacteristic. If anger is your main symptom without insomnia, confusion, continual sadness, change in appetite, or feelings of hopelessness, you may be suffering from what’s called postpartum stress syndrome, not clinical depression. Postpartum stress syndrome is an acute state of feeling extremely overwhelmed. But not to worry! It’s treatable through therapy. If you’re feeling any of this, please talk to your doctor so they can guide you in the right direction and you can get help. Don’t feel sad or ashamed about reaching for help. Be proud that you’re brave enough to do so!
I told you this would be real and raw. If someone hasn’t already told you, I will. Below are a few tips to help you through this.

Here is a list of fibrous foods for you to skim through: fibrous foods list!
Personally, I didn’t feel like my normal self until my daughter was 18 months old. She’s 25 months old as I write this, and I feel 90% myself again. It’s a new normal, and that’s okay. It’s just part of motherhood. It’s okay to not feel yourself for a while, it’s okay to binge watch a TV show at 3:00 AM and it’s okay to look amess for a while. As long as your baby is taken care of, what else matters?!
Go! Totally go. Personally, my back was killing me since birth and going to the chiropractor has helped immensely.
I’m no doctor and I cannot give medical advice, but it could be an array of things that may be the problem. Some mothers said it was a bad latch and they needed an IBCLC, for some it was cutting out dairy and others it was a change in formula that was needed. Whatever it may be, it’s usually not normal for a baby to continuously cry. Please take your precious, sweet baby to a pediatrician as soon as you can!
Yeah, they can happen. If you’re unsure what these are, they are swollen veins in your anus, usually occurring from the pushing and pressure of birth and/or pregnancy. These can cause bleeding when you wipe, itchiness and skin to stick out. Don’t be embarrassed, these are common for both men and women. To be prepared you can buy tucks pads, preparation h as wipes or ointment and/or dermoplast spray.
I hope you enjoyed Postpartum: What to Expect and can walk away feeling more educated.
