Your Period After Pregnancy – Someone Has To Talk About It (+ Your Questions Answered)

I am not going to lie, I was a little terrified about publishing this post. For so many years I have been made to feel ashamed about my period, it is just not something we, as women, talk about. Periods are completely natural and normal, yet we are constantly told to “keep it to ourselves”. […]
