So this video went into details on all things “birth story”, but what about those first hours, days and weeks after my section? Spoiler alert: they were pretty grim! But, as I explain in this video, the pain was worth it and the main thing that would have helped me deal with section recovery more easily would have been hearing more women be honest about the pain they endured afterwards. What made everything feel so much harder was this crazy notion that I should have already ~bounced back~ because of course sections are easy. Hmmmmmm! This video isn’t designed to put anyone off a section, as I say in the video I’d have one again, it just details how I felt when first getting used to everything.
The comments are helpful too!
