Postnatal Fitness Coaching

 

Being a Mom is special…..

But being a mom is also one of the toughest roles we will ever experience.  Our bodies have been stretched, weighed down and completely morphed from the physique we’ve known our entire lives.

Its normal for moms to experience a gamut of emotions over our new bodies and responsibilities.  We feel like we must get “our bodies back” and start back into a fitness routine too early, or, begin activities that put too much stress on our pelvic floor, core and overall body.

I’ve been there, and know first hand what it feels like to push past that point of healthy or safe, just to get back into my pre-baby jeans.

I learned the hard way that going to hard too soon, and exercising without the proper knowledge and information, can lead to issues such as:

  • Further damage to an existing diastasis recti (a gap in the abdominals caused by stretching/thinning of the connective tissue)
  • urinary/fecal incontinence (which is common but not normal)
  • back pain
  • pain during intercourse
  • pelvic organ prolapse
