Taking the plunge

Written by: Dianne Edmonds Posted on 24 Nov 2012 0

On the other side, three days later, since writing this - is experience, a lot more ideas, and the satisfaction from having spent two days with some awesome fitness professionals. Looking back and looking forwards is always interesting, and to see how far we have come, we often need to stop for a moment and reflect.

What matters most?

It was interesting at a new mum’s group to hear the talk about postnatal adjustment and the changes the new mum’s experience, as they learn and grow with their baby. Motherhood is an unfolding process, and a journey of discovery with its joys and challenges. One key point that came out, is the importance of knowing yourself and what matters most to you each day.

Is Anyone Listening

Many years as a physiotherapist have been spent listening to women, who have felt like no one is listening. As a mother and wife I can understand and relate to the times when it seems like you are not being listened to. Deep in your heart there is often that inner need that is not being met, that source of life that you can tap into that makes your eyes spark and your passion stir.

Dianne Edmonds 3/06/2013 5:24:30 PM Thanks Lori for your comments. It would be great for postnatal mums to learn this now and not take 9 1/2 years like I did to find out about this information. I was listening to Dr Sara last night and was reminded that we can help join in with her audacious goal to balance the hormones of 1 million women in 2013 - starting here with our postnatal mums!

Thanks again Lori!

I am a physio in here in Brisbane and deal mostly now with Women's Health-related patients. I heard about Dr Gottfried's book a short while ago and it's on my to-read list! I love the tiara idea! I think it's so important for any postnatal mom, whether new or 9 1/2 yrs later, to take time out for themselves. We don't do it enough. Even to eat - I tend to catch myself eating standing up or on the run :)

Thank you so much for your blogs, I really enjoy them and I advise my patients to read them as well.

Fiona Scrymgeour 10/04/2013 3:31:01 PM Transformation is an amazing process when you are pregnant but also creating a new life for you and your young children. The greatest stress is balancing being a mum and earning an income. There are some great options available to avoid going back to the stress of work and bringing home the stress to your family. I have started a fantastic work from home based business which is just perfect for having both flexibility and income flow. If you are interested in transforming you work and motherhood have a look at www.improvesuccess.com.au for some options. Wishing yo all the best in your transformation!

Onpreeya 8/02/2013 2:14:55 PM yes, i am pregnant now 36 weeks aclltuay and months and months before i found out i was pregnant i reckon i took about 30 odd tests, every 2-3 weeks as i was desperate to fall pregnant and had no symptoms the first time i fell pregnant till about 20 weeks so i knew i wouldn't be able to tell from my body changing. Anyway just be patient and don't waste as much money as i did on tests if it's meant to be it will beReferences :
