Natural postpartum recovery is not only about healing after labor but also giving your body the opportunity to bloom into something stronger

Seven tips for a natural postpartum recovery

Congratulations mama! You did it.

Some say that it was the hardest thing they have ever done in their life. Others say it was the best. Most agree it’s a little of both.

Whatever you think about labor and delivery and however you went about it, there is no argument: its recovery time.

I know some of you are reading this thinking that recovery will be no bigdeal. Some of you may even go to Target tomorrow. I hope that this post will change your mind.

Even if you feel great, you just ran your body through the ringer. It will take five weeks for your body to start to feel normal. Some traditional texts say that it will take 100 days for you to be back to where you were before you got pregnant. I’ve heard some professionals say that it can take up to three years to fully recover from childbirth.

But I’m here to give you good news. If you manage your recovery right, not only can you bounce back sooner, but you can bounce back better. The postpartum period is one of three opportunities a woman has to heal herself and build on the foundation she had before pregnancy so she can be harder, better, faster and stronger.

The first tip? Bed rest.

Five ways to naturally induce labor, either at home or in a clinic

Five Ways to Induce Labor Naturally

38 weeks have passed and you’re looking to induce labor.

Your back hurts. Your feet are tired. Your innards haven’t functioned “normally” for months. You are done with pregnancy.

You hop on Pinterest and before you know it your fingers have tapped out “natural labor induction” and you ended up here.

I get it. I see so many mamas at 38 and 39 weeks who are exactly where you are and frankly, I’ve been there myself.

So I wanted to get some labor induction ideas down on paper (well, pixels anyway) for mamas to be able to peruse and then discuss with their midwives or ob-gyns. But first, some important information about the differences between labor preparation and labor induction.
