What to expect from your post-baby body

“How could I let another woman walk through the terrifying abyss of motherhood, without telling her the things I’d seen?”

Mia is a new mother who decided to put on a stage show called ‘Postpartum: The Musical”  – and it’s just as hilarious as it sounds. There are jazz hands and high kicks-a-plenty as Mia sings her way through mastitis, the big post-birth bleed, frightening reality of rock hard boobs and the “sex-week” check-up.

Sadly, there isn’t really a ‘Postpartum: The Musical,” it’s all part of an advertisement for the brand Hello Flo, but it’s brilliant none the less.

Have a watch and reminisce about the good ol’ post-birth days or give yourself a crash course for what might lie ahead…

What advice would you give to a new mum about her postpartum body?
