Shawn Johnson Reveals She “Felt Guilty” for Delivering via C-Section

For some women, c-section guilt is a very real thing. It’s often impossible to predict what’s going to happen in the delivery room, and, in some cases, things may not go as planned—making a c-section unavoidable. Olympic athlete Shawn Johnson had a very similar experience when she gave birth to her daughter last week, and she took to social media to open up about it. In a recent Instagram post, Johnson revealed she spent 22 hours in labor, before welcoming her daughter with husband, fellow athlete Andrew […]

I Love My ‘Mom Pouch’ and Stretch Marks More Than I Ever Thought I Would

Courtesy of Lindsay Wolf It’s almost bedtime, and the kids are going bonkers. My nine-month-old has just learned how to walk, so he’s traipsing around the room like he owns the joint (and he kinda does). My 3-year-old is donning a cape and nothing else, as she runs around in circles making airplane sounds and pretending to fly. Meanwhile, I’m trying to stay inconspicuous as I lay down in a quiet corner, so I can keep zoning out on my phone in peace. Courtesy of Lindsay Wolf […]

One thing, however, I did not anticipate: how infuriatingly difficult it would be to find a half-decent outfit. A year ago, I believed the conventional wisdom that maternity clothes have vastly improved since my baby boomer mom and Gen-X cousins were pregnant. Now that I’m shopping for a third-trimester baby bump, I realize my faith […]

It Took Years To ‘Get Over’ My Traumatic Childbirth Experiences

Courtesy of Taylor Garvin Now, to be clear, no one was asking me to “get over” my C-sections, but it was definitely something I had to work through. Leading up to the birth of my daughter, I didn’t really prepare in any way at all, except reading one book, where I intentionally skipped the part on C-sections. I honestly thought it was something reserved for extremely special circumstances/complications. And if it was the case, for myself, I probably would have been aware of it, prior to. I wanted to […]

I Bled Throughout My Entire Pregnancy

Camila Cordeiro/StockSnap I looked down to see tiny droplets of blood silently seeping into the toilet. The water turned the dark red color of a professor’s corrective pen. Unclear. Explain. Revise. I was seven weeks pregnant. My hands shook as I looked at the toilet paper streaked with blood and I yelled for my husband. He told me to put my sneakers on. We were going to the ER. As he hurried me down the stairs of our apartment and into the parking garage, I stopped for a second before I got into the car and […]
