This blog is about how everything changed after I gave birth. Not how things changed generally because I became a mum (but of course that happened too, big time!) but simply how it changed my life on a physical level.

I used to be a runner. Not an elite runner, not one of the very best out there, but also not just a recreational jogger. Running was me, my passion, and it wouldn’t matter where I was but when I was running I felt like home. But the pelvic organ prolapse I sustained from the trauma of the very long labour which ended with an assisted birth created a barrier between me and the running. This has been very difficult for me to come to terms with, and I suspect I am not the only one with this problem. I feel however that birth injuries (to the mother) is not something you generally talk about. That’s why I have decided to open up now – and with this blog I hope to reach out to other women who might have similar problems.

Let’s talk about this!
