Postpartum wellness and the journey through motherhood

By Julie Cusmariu – April 12, 2018

Typically postpartum is defined as beginning immediately after the birth of a child and extends for about 6 weeks.

“What?” I ask.
Or demand, rather.

I have a soon to be 7 year old and a 4 year old and often feel like, and know that I only recently moved out of the postpartum period.

Postpartum is also defined as the period following childbirth. This is a gargantuan adjustment that can take some of us months and years to settle into.

Merely accepting what comes with mothering/ parenting a child can require a great deal of letting go, loss of control, letting in and acceptance and that is ‘just’ the emotional landscape.

I’ve been hearing from some women and you’ve shared with me that your postpartum period was 9 months, 2 years, 8 years and others believe postpartum is for life.

What is true for you?

We had a wonderful and enriching conversation as part of my podcast series #Motherhood #LetsCreateAVillage on exactly this topic with two Montreal therapists (Yoga, Ayurveda , massage, Pilates ) and mothers, Jenny Berthiaume , Montreal yoga therapist and teacher, and Brigitte Robitaille, Montreal Pilates instructor and trainer and massage therapist.
