0

A mum of five has revealed how she healed her body after naturally carrying and giving birth to quadruplets last year.

Natalie Maree, 30, from Roebourne in Western Australia, said she always thought she needed to get her ‘pre-baby body’ back as soon as possible after giving birth.

But in fact, it took almost a year of hard work at the gym and careful eating to “heal” her body, and even 11 months after the birth of the quadruplets, she has to remind herself that “what my body looks like is not a representation of my personality’.

“It’s ridiculously hard not to compare yourself to others, not to be jealous of others, not to wish for anything other than what you have,” Natalie wrote. Instagram.

“I do or have done all these things.”

But, Natalie said, you need to remember that your body is “just the vehicle that carries your personality and you should love your vehicle and not compare it to anyone else’s.”

‘You only get one body. Treat it well, love it deeply, and thank it for getting through each day,” Natalie said.

“It’s ridiculously hard not to compare yourself to others, not to be jealous of others, not to want something different from what you have,” said Natalie (pictured with her family)

In addition to eating healthy with five young children, Natalie has tried to include as much exercise as possible in her weekly regimen.

Typical workouts for the mom of five include squats and presses with a plate, planks, squats, and burpees.

Natalie usually shares clips of her working out on her Instagram page.

What is anovulation?

* Anovulation occurs when an egg does not release or ovulate from a woman’s ovaries.

* Chronic anovulation is a common cause of infertility. According to the National Institutes of Health, these conditions are responsible for nearly 30 percent of female infertility.

* Anovulation is usually, although not always, accompanied by irregular or missed periods. However, in anovulatory cycles, there may be bleeding, which a woman may mistake for a normal period, although this would only rarely occur on a regular, monthly basis.

Natalie was diagnosed with “unexplained infertility,” dubbed “anovulation,” and required ovulation induction — or injecting hormones to stimulate regular ovulation — before finally falling pregnant with their daughter Kiki in 2018.

“Twins run in my family and I’ve been told there’s a small chance of a multiple pregnancy with this treatment, but I could never have foreseen what would happen,” Natalie said earlier.

“When we went for our first pregnancy scan, I saw two pouches appear on the screen and I started crying because I thought we were having twins. Kahn started to cry too.’

Natalie and Kahn’s quadruplets Maioha Kahn (2.3 kg), Frankee Gene (1.92 kg), Marley Rose (2.2 kg) and Maddison Grace (2.1 kg) were born within minutes on July 21 .
