Embracing My Body After Having Twins

Brenda Quiroz, Regional Brand Director North America Global Brand, Innovation and Sustainability, TENA

"Being pregnant with twins was not easy. I remember everyone telling me it was great to have two babies at once because you only had to be pregnant once. Yeah!! Ask my body that!! While pregnant, I needed to change my eating habits in order to have my weight under control. After my twins were born, the shape of my body changed and breastfeeding twins was a challenge. Over the years, I struggled to lose weight. Now, the pandemic has surprisingly helped me to get back on track. I am eating healthier food and get to exercise on a regular basis. So far, I managed to lose 20 pounds…there’s still more to go, but it’s a journey not a race!"
