Bouncing Back After Baby & Reframing What Motherhood Looks Like

Aleks Ceho Family Life

As a mother of two little girls, I have had two very different postpartum experiences. As I write this, I am currently in my 4th Trimester after my second daughter’s birth and am feeling all of the pressures (both internal and external) to ‘bounce back’ from having a baby. These pressures or expectations are both things we put on ourselves as mothers as well as external messages we receive from others. I know I am not alone in feeling this.
