Post Pregnancy Changes

During Pregnancy, the body undergoes a variety of changes very quickly such as extra weight is stored throughout the body to make sure that the mother has enough energy stockpiled to give her strength and fulfil the special needs of her body through the pregnancy. Breasts often change shape and size, both in response to weight gain and because of hormonal changes. One of the primary changes during pregnancy, obviously, is the expansion of the uterus to accommodate the fetes inside it. To allow the expansion of the uterus, the abdominal muscles also stretch and make room for the growing baby within. This can cause the abdominal muscles to separate which if often permanent. Maximum of the changes seen in the body during pregnancy are entirely cosmetic, and gradually return to their normal shape as time passes. Making an extra effort in eating right and proper exercise can help shed any remaining excess pregnancy pounds after your baby is born. Yet, once the abdominal skin is stretched to its limit over and over again through multiple pregnancies, it eventually reaches a point when it cannot bounce back (no matter how many crunches you do!). This situation makes it impossible to bounce back to your per-baby weight and these changes make your body look fat and uneven, which in turn lowers your confidence and self esteem. Fortunately, Mommy Makeover is the answer to repair those permanent changes.
