Fitness has many forms and it means different things to different people. Being active and feeling good is what fitness means to me. Pregnancy is a special and sometimes difficult time in a woman’s life, and there are so many different things going on with the structural and hormonal changes it brings. We need to be aware of how to help moms safely prepare for birth and postpartum. Let’s help prepare our core and pelvic floor for what’s to come.
After baby, we need to take care of mom. It can be so overwhelming. Babies are beautiful and amazing and exhausting. Rest, nutrition, and healthy movement are necessary, not just for our physical well being but for our emotional health. Learning how to properly engage our core can be life changing, for many of us it will be doing it correctly for the first time in our lives.
Let’s do this! Life is too short to live with symptoms that are preventing you from living a fuller life. I believe I can help you to feel strong and amazing in your body, no matter where you are in your fitness journey.
This can change your life! Learning how to deal with all the challenges that having a baby can bring. Sometimes it can feel seem like we will never feel “normal” again and yes, our bodies will forever be changed. But we can be strong and feel good in our skin again.
There are strategies that we can learn to prevent or manage symptoms like incontinence, low back pain, prolapse, diastasic recti. Or maybe you don’t have any symptoms. Awesome! Lets keep it that way.
This series is intended to take you back to the activity of your choice, whether its hitting the gym, chasing toddlers or heading out for a jog.
