A mother’s organs are put under incredible pressure in the process of creating the miracle of life. As organs are squished together, you’ll realize why pregnant women experience indigestion, heartburn and bladder problems. Imagine someone constantly pushing your bladder, this explains why you have the infuriating need to pee every 10 minutes.
As weeks becomes months and the due date is near, every little organ of the mother is under tremendous strain, you can even see how long it takes for a woman’s body to go back to its normal state after giving birth.
Pregnancy is no less of an extraordinary feat and it is no wonder that even after so many centuries, people are still amazed by how our bodies can actually create life. Truly incredible!
