The Breeders: Postpartum is a Bitch
Luckily I live in a time and place where postpartum care and support is available from people who (mostly) know that breastfeeding is hard and depression may be looming. However, none of the books or medical professionals seem to pay attention to or prepare you for one minor detail - creating, carrying around and delivering another human kind of fucks with your body.
Okay not kind of...it really does. And no I'm not just talking about the extra weight you gained to sustain that human, but all the other stuff. The ligaments, muscles and joints that are affected. Maybe 22 year-olds don't have this problem. But let me tell you 32 year-olds do. Thank god I found some people to help me out.
