after9months.com is my passion because of my personal journey with postpartum recovery. I never thought I would be affected by postpartum issues, considering I was a pelvic health therapist. After giving birth to my kids, I thought I would bounce back in 6 weeks, or less which did not happen. After a year long healing and turning each stone on my way, it was clear how neglected postpartum care was. I realized that my goals of 6 weeks recovery were unrealistic - mainly due to a lack of awareness. The sad part is this is not just my story. When my conversation with postpartum mothers ends with #iwishiknew about this, I am reminded about the acute scarcity of information about postpartum. I feel obliged to bring my professional expertise and blue print of my journey to other moms. Surprising fact is all mothers have illusion that they are the only one dealing with these issues and other are doing fine.
I feel blessed to have a community to able to bring change but this effort is not good enough to fill the void at global level, hence my quest to bring my knowledge, professional experience to the wider community. With hands-on experience as a pelvic health therapist, and as an entrepreneur, I know how to convert this idea into a real resource. I have a clear vision of the end goal.
