The Things About Being Pregnant NO ONE Wants to Tell You

by Kaleena Ruskin

If you are a soon to be new mommy reading this blog. Congratulations! Motherhood is truly a treasure and quite the experience… At this point, it’s all very exciting and everyone’s telling you that you’re glowing, you feel like you’re glowing because you’re a walking miracle that’s creating life inside of your belly. 

But there are some things you might want to know. Now we’re not here to totally rain on your parade, but we are here to lightly shower you in a reality check. Pregnancy and everything that surrounds it can often be a taboo topic. You’ve probably heard your fair share of horror stories about other people’s pregnancies from women having their bladders cut accidentally to pooping yourself to things tearing that you don’t want to be torn or even being snipped. 

Honestly if someone made a movie about labor and delivery, we know for a fact, it would scare the living shit out of some people. It’s bloody, it’s messy, people are screaming, your partner might even be fainting…it’s A LOT going on, not to mention everything you’re feeling from a physical standpoint (pending whether or not you get the epidural). 

It’s kind of a train wreck and we haven’t even gotten into all the stuff that happens AFTER you have the baby like:

  • Peeing yourself
  • Having a mommy pooch
  • Never feeling like your abs are working even when you do 1000 crunches
  • Having painful sex
  • Having your organs literally bulge out of your rectum and/or vagina

Have we sufficiently freaked you out yet? There’s a lot that can happen and a lot of women aren’t told about it or prepared for it so they think they just have to live with it for the rest of their lives like “Oh I guess this is the price I have to pay for having a child”. AHHH! NOOOOOOO! That is SO NOT how it’s supposed to be. Having a child doesn’t have to come with a price. 

It SHOULD be an enjoyable experience. You SHOULD be able to enjoy your time with your baby afterward and not have to worry about a super lengthy hard painful recovery. Basically what we are saying is that a lot of these things that happen during pregnancy, labor/delivery and postpartum are common, but that doesn’t make them normal. And more women should know that this stuff is completely 100% preventable as well as solvable if you do develop them. 

You know what the solution is? It’s crazy, so bear with us. EXERCISE. We have been able to help hundreds of women have safe and easy labor and deliveries and prevent common postpartum symptoms from developing with intentional training of the pelvic core. NOT just the pelvic floor, but the entire system of the pelvic core which is made up of your pelvic floor, back and hip muscles, abdominals and respiratory diaphragm. ALL of these things working together in harmony is what is going to help you in your pregnancy as well as afterward. 

Seriously, the answer is that simple. You can do it once a week or twice a week for 45 minutes and it will make the difference between you having a hard labor and delivery, plus months, maybe even up to a year of recovery or having a relatively easy labor and delivery and recovering in a few weeks. 

Which one sounds better to you?
