    Melissa!! I wish i watched this before Walker came into the world, ha. This is so true ladies! I was terrified and cried. I pushed for 3 hours and was exhausted days later! Another thing you may want to had to your vlog is….hemorrhoids…..such a sore subject but i did get one and it was weeks after birth maybe 5-8 weeks i noticed it and it hurt. he is 12 weeks now and almost fully recovered. Drink lots of water and eat tons of veggies!! love your videos melissa!

    • I LOVE you for saying that — please spread the word! This truly is one of those things nobody talks about but it can be a bit issue! Thanks so much for watching!! xo Melissa

    Out of 7 kids, the only time I any trouble with my nether parts functioning well after the birth , was the one time the doc did an episiotomy (which I asked him not to do, but got anyway 🙁 !). The other 6 kids were born over an intact perineum & I had no trouble at all afterwards!
    Moral of the story is: a tender bottom is not the result of birth, it is the result of birth trauma, which rarely happens with natural births, mostly a result of unnecessary interventions.
