97 Healing, Balancing and Restoring Post-Childbirth
There was that wild day when I found myself home with this new living being – my first child.
And just as it does for most everyone in our culture…
…ALL the attention shifted to the baby. I’m including myself in that statement.
Forget the fact that I had a boo-boo the size of a dinner plate in my belly and my body had been torn and sewn back together. I was “fine.”
THAT’s where I (we) messed up.
I realized it talking to this week’s Mindful Mama Podcast guest, the amazing Kimberly Johnson.
I messed that time up, and my lack of healing has repercussions today.
I’m willing to bet the same may be true for you, too.
