48 hours of labor and emergency invasive surgery left @YukikoDraws‘s pelvic floor in shambles and, in today’s comic, she shares with us how she’s been muscling through on her path to recovery. A sobering and deeply honest story about the difficulties of post-pregnancy recovery and a reminder that you aren’t alone if you see yourself reflected here. Turns out, giving birth is pretty darn rough on the body!
I can’t recommend following @YukikoDraws‘s Instagram enough, especially if you or those in your life are exploring the baby-making-thing. It features so many amazingly helpful comics about her experiences, ailments and little honest vignettes all to do with being a new and soon-to-be mother.
We’ve also got a small collection of comics on Pregnancy too for you to check out.
OJST is almost entirely reader and Patreon supported! With the recent Patreon whoopsie (A payment-card-decline-issue, read about it on The Verge & Engadget & Patreon’s Status page), we’ve been hard hit and are sweating about the future!
