Nadine Brown, a physiotherapist with a special interest in pelvic health as well as a former competitive boxer, joins me to share her touching personal birth story. She talks so openly about the emotions she felt during pregnancy that didn't align with everyone else, the birth experience that did not go as planned, how she struggled physically and emotionally during that first year as a new mom, and how she has reached the stage of acceptance in her healing journey. Don't forget to look out for the infographic Nadine and I worked on to go with this podcast on tips to get through early motherhood at www.loriforner.com or @pelvicwod in Instagram.
