Before I had experienced the postpartum period, I had a lot of ideas about what exercise after birth must be like. I knew that there would be changes to my client's pelvic floors, that some of them would be breastfeeding, that fatigue would likely be an issue, and that exercise could be a really great tool to add stress reduction and strength back into their lives.
They always say that you don't truly know what to expect from motherhood until you've lived through it. This is definitely true of my experience thus far. It's better than I thought. It's harder than I thought. It's more all encompassing than I thought.
