#2 - FOUR Postpartum Healing Dysfunctions Your OB Never Told You About
Getting your body back to a previous state you loved can be a challenge. Sure, the OBGYN cleared you as OK at 6-weeks, but what does that really mean you are OK to do?
Can I exercise? I’ve heard you can’t exercise if you breastfeed. And that 5 extra pounds…
What is really necessary to heal it and “get it back”. What does it really take for your postpartum body to be enough? Special guest Nathalia Melo of nathaliamelofit.com tells us how to heal our bodies and get them to a place we truly love.
We talk about challenges like Symphis Pubis Dysfunction, Diastasis Recti, and Pelvic Floor issues (like peeing your pants when you jump or laugh). Feeling like you’re enough for the work you do, is absolutely correlated to how you feel about your body as well.

Postpartum Healing Do's and Don'ts
- Just because an OBGYN clears you as “OK” doesn’t mean everything is fine and dandy for you to return to 100% pre-pregnancy exercise. OBGYN’s are educated in affairs related to organs, not in rehabing the body.
- Challenges like Symphis Pubis Dysfunction during pregnancy as well as Diastasis Recti and Pelvic Floor Issues are very common among women who have had children. But the good news is – you don’t have to live with it. You can heal your body.
- For those who are breastfeeding, exercise does NOT reduce milk supply. But breastfeeding does require calories and water intake, so be extra careful to eat added calories and drink lots of extra water so you can continue nursing.
- If you really want to heal correctly, or struggle with any of these dysfunctions, seek help from a qualified women’s physical health specialist who respects your intuition. For best results, don’t try to do it alone.
