The Other Side of Pregnancy

After having her first daughter, Catie realized something: everyone talks about the beauty of pregnancy and having a baby, but not the challenges and pains. There was no preparation about how her body will change, what will happen during pregnancy and in postpartum. Catie did not know what to expect, and upon looking at herself in the mirror, she was shocked at the difference in her body after the pregnancy. 

Looking forward, the third baby was Catie’s most challenging pregnancy due to her body not taking a break from the second. It was that time when she started to not put herself first and not take care of her body enough. With the help of her husband, she began to do things for herself – she went to the gym three days a week. Seeing the difference from that made Catie learn to accept herself and her body and shifted her mindset, which she shared online to inspire other mothers out there as well. At present, Catie gives tips through her Instagram account for women to be positive about their postpartum bodies. She believes that verbalizing the positive shifts out the negative energy, making you feel the strongest. Catie proves from her experience that being able to accept yourself as it is after pregnancy radiates to your family, from your husband to your children, because mothers are the energies of their homes.
