Two-time Olympic champion Magdalena Neuner spoke about the impact the birth of a second child to health.
“After my second child was born I started to have severe health problems. Began to develop the hyperfunction of the thyroid gland, I was very nervous, she was losing weight.
I didn’t have physical strength, some days I couldn’t get out – the energy was completely spent. I don’t think burnout is a sign of weakness. This signal from the body that you want to take less.
In the end I managed to learn to accept help, even though it was not easy. Now I can call my mom and ask to take her children, if you don’t feel well,” said Neuner.
Note that Neuner gave birth to her son Joseph on 7 November 2016, before that, in 2014, the Faithful daughter-Anna.
