I’ve almost posted this pic about 10 times but was feeling so vulnerable sharing my least flattering body pic. But here it goes…the picture on the left was taken 7 days after my cesarean with B (yes, I still look pregnant and the hospital underwear don’t help). The photo on the right is from a week ago. I’ve never openly shared my birth story before because I was once ashamed and embarrassed that I didn’t have a natural birth like I had “planned”.

I share this experience with you because it took me a while to not feel ashamed and embrace that this was the experience I needed to have. This process humbled me and taught me to let go of trying to control every situation. Because we can’t. I look at my body before and after and am so proud of what it can do. I credit meditation, mindfully eating a plant based diet, movement and loving and excepting myself exactly the way I am to creating this transformation. There is nothing more powerful than being kind and gentle to yourself. Full birth story coming soon.

I would love for you to send me your transformation photos as you incorporate these 3 M’s (meditation, mindful eating and movement) into your lifestyle. I will be sharing your transformation stories on my page, just be sure to tag @melissawoodhealth and add #melissawoodhealth for my body transformation stories.

    Hello. I see that you don’t update your website too often. I know that writing posts is boring and time consuming.

    But did you know that there is a tool that allows you to create
    new posts using existing content (from article directories or other pages from your niche)?
    And it does it very well. The new posts are high quality and pass the
    copyscape test. You should try miftolo’s tools
