Carrying and birthing a child is one of the great marvels of life. While it’s truly amazing to experience what a woman’s body can accomplish, many of us have no idea how to go about getting back to our pre-pregnancy bodies. Further, many celebrities, with their seemingly instant “snapback”, have given us an unrealistic idea of how long it really should take to return to what we once looked like. Health professionals say, “nine months in, nine months out”, meaning, it took your body nine months to bring a human into this world. It makes perfect sense that it would take at least that long to recover.
