I remember the phone call well. I was speaking to a close friend I hadn’t seen for some time. It was a couple of weeks after finding out I was pregnant. I just couldnt keep the news to myself any longer so I spilled the beans – full of excitement about what was to come.
She was thrilled and ushered the usual “congratulations” and “you’re going to be a great mom”. But then she said something that I had not given much thought to. She said: “Oh no… your body! It will never be the same again!”
