  • My postpartum journey was joy, love...and bodily fluids

    Co-host of popular Beyond the Bump podcast, Sophie Pearce says the four words to describe her postpartum journey would be: joy, love and bodily fluids. Post-partum is like the Alanis Morrisette song “Ironic”. It’s the greatest joy paired with soul crushing exhaustion, it’s excruciatingly long nights but be careful because if you blink, you’ll miss it. It’s feeling isolated and alone while also being completely touched out and never having a second to yourself. It’s the greatest blur I have ever experienced!

  • My postpartum journey in four words? Magic, love, illness and loss.

    (TW: infant loss) My postpartum journey in four words? Magic, love, illness and loss. I had a different experience after each of my three births. After my first birth I didn’t have a postpartum journey, my son was terminally ill and I sat by his bed every day until my body was so exhausted I couldn’t take any more. When he died at the age of eight days, both I and the rest of the world no longer thought about my postpartum. There simply wasn’t one.

  • My postpartum journey was...a giant tug-of-war – being pulled from one fear to the next.

    My postpartum journey was…downright scary. Like a giant tug-of-war. Constantly being pulled from one fear to the next. The very first night I brought her home, I did what I’d been told and laid her to sleep in her crib. I lay in bed watching her sleep between those wooden bars, absolutely terrified. It all felt so wrong. She’d been living inside me for 41 weeks and now on the very first day outside my body, we weren’t supposed to be together when we slept?

  • There’s no better contraception than being afraid of your vagina

    My postpartum journey was confusing, lonely, embarrassing, magical...and complicated. On the one hand, I was in awe of what my body had done – and I still am – on the other, I felt embarrassed about my piles, my prolapse, my stitches. It’s hard to feel confident, empowered and the best version of yourself when you’re scared your body will let you down, especially in public or during an intimate moment. There’s nothing scarier than the thought of having sex again when you don’t even know if your stitches have healed. There’s that fear that you’ll never feel ‘normal’ again.

    This week is Women’s Health Week, so we’ve rounded up a tonne of info and customer stories on the period conditions you talk to us about as a starting point to remind you to not neglect your health, get your regular check-ups, speak up if anything doesn’t feel right, and don’t think you need to suffer in silence!

  • Let’s get bloody heavy. It’s time to talk menorrhagia.

    It’s time to talk about HEAVY periods, or menorrhagia...a condition that’s not uncommon, that’s hard to pronounce and that’s probably not talked about as often as it should be. We’ve chatted to three women who suffer (every single month) to find out what it’s really like, how it affects their lives and what, if anything, they can do about it. But first, what IS menorrhagia?

  • Postpartum bleeding truths: it’s NOT just like a period.

    Got questions about postpartum bleeding? Wondering what to expect? First things first, it’s NOT the same as a period (unless your periods drag on for several weeks), and while you may have enjoyed not having a period for the past 9-ish months, the postpartum period brings the bleeding back – often somewhat unexpectedly, and heavily.

  • The most unexpected aspect of postpartum for me was that at 23, I would end up incontinent

    After a traumatic birth, Shani Chantel suffered (in silence) with incontinence after giving birth. She shares her story of not ‘bouncing back’ after baby and coming to terms with her new body. How would I describe my postpartum journey? Unpredictable, scary, confusing and liberating. I was really naïve and it was unlike anything I’d been told my postpartum life...and body...would be.

  • The first time I became a mother, my relationship with my body was turned upside down.

    ‘The first time I became a mother, the relationship I had with my body was completely turned upside down. I felt like my body was disloyal because it wasn’t doing what I wanted it to do. The changes, so many changes: soft belly, huge nipples, stretch marks, leaking breasts, tired beyond belief...and so, so sore. I wish I had known that this was all OK and normal, that it was talked about more, instead of the narrative focusing on bodies ‘bouncing back’ and the unreal concept of being a ‘yummy mummy’.’ We chat to Embrace filmmaker Taryn Brumfitt about her personal postpartum experience...
