"One thing that is really nice about the two postpartum periods, even the previous one, is the feeling that you can accomplish anything after you give birth. With my second son, it manifests itself more as a need to move a lot, to do sports, to go out. And with my first, well, I got my nose pierced! I mean, there’s no pain that is too much pain from now on! And despite everything, the depression etc, this feeling was always there with both of my kids: 'There’s a human who came out of my body so… bring it!' It’s a really cool sensation, very empowering. The feeling has calmed down over time – as did the hormones! – but it’s still there, a little bit. So, yeah.
