We are delighted to introduce Roberta von Meding, a 32 year old proud mother of two daughters and the editor of the excellent Mums & Tots Magazine, Ireland’s favourite maternity magazine.
Having had pre-eclampsia during both pregnancies which resulted in swelling, oedema and severe diastasis recti (where the stomach muscles separate postpartum), Roberta has developed neck and back strains when exercising making physical activities difficult for her.
Roberta would love to be able to do a Yoga or Pilates class but due to her condition it is simply not possible. Additionally, Roberta has recently started developing hernias in her abdomen. As a result, Roberta has decided to have abdominoplasty (also known as a “tummy tuck”) and muscle repair surgery with The Avoca Clinic. We are delighted to share her first video blog documenting her journey.
