    Breasts and Bottoms

    Expectant Moms and New Mommas - REMEMBER - growing a human being takes a tole on the body...delivering them into the world is equal to an Olympic Event!

    - Breasts change as a result of the pregnancy NOT breastfeeding. They WILL go back to essentially the shape and size they were.

    - Bottoms (and everything else "down there!") go through extreme stress while you're pregnant, and monumental bumps with delivery. I recommend using a hand mirror after delivery to get a look, so that you can be sure all is healing.

    Healing Tip: Think Air and Light!
    - Have your nipples open to the air as often and for as long as possible.
    - Likewise with your bottom (caution here!) On your bed, with door closed and locked, feet together, knees open, to allow your 'downtown' access to the air and light

    Very helpful to enhance the healing process!
