All humans grow, but a woman’s body transforms the most during her lifetime. From puberty to pregnancy to motherhood to menopause, our bodies change significantly. Most changes happen gradually over a number of years; however, pregnancy into motherhood is a rapid change for our bodies, and probably the most dramatic. Pregnancy is a temporary function - the increased blood flow, fluxing hormones, and weight gain are not necessarily permanent. However, our bodies also will never 100% return to our pre-pregnancy state - mostly because our bodies adjust to their new job... motherhood.
