Healing after ChildBirth with NeuFit
This is a post that's very dear to my (Garrett's) heart. It's about my wife's experience with preparing for birth, delivering our children, and recovering from the diastasis that she had after our 2nd daughter. I was amazed to watch her deliver both children, totally naturally. (Big thanks to the midwives at the Austin Birthing Center, where she delivered both times). Part of what made the experience so awesome was seeing how empowering it was for her to rely on her body to do the special task that it was made to do. One of the things that she credits with preparing her to be able to deliver without any drugs was our preparatory workouts. She learned how to handle intense stimulation, while still staying as mentally calm as possible. Ultimately, that is the same skill set that is required to successfully give birth. And it was amazing to see that ability in action, particularly with our second daughter (in photo above) who came out at 9.5 lbs. After the second birth, she had to deal with something that did not happen after the first: Diastasis Recti. This involves a separation of the of abdominal wall, and is something that most people don't even know about until it happens. Millions of moms have it after being pregnant.
