Women often don’t realize after giving birth the extent to what their bodies have been through and expect to just bounce back once the baby is born. Sadly this doesn’t happen. It certainly didn’t for me and I continued to exercise throughout the whole of my pregnancy.
It’s important to remember that you carried your baby for 9 months! Your body has undergone some dramatic changes during this time, it has weakened in many areas, and you really need to expect at least 12 months for things to settle down.
Rehabbing and easing yourself back into working out post-baby is so very important. If you are keen to get your body back and to feel good again, let me help you to do it the right way. Rushing back can have a huge detrimental effect on your recovery, resulting in injuries and complications, sometimes irreversible! I have seen women suffer from hernias and back injuries as a result of lifting too heavy or pushing too hard with their training before their body and core is strong enough to cope.
After my pregnancy and post-partum journey, I spent a huge amount of time collating everything I’d learned into a handy guide for new moms like you to follow. You can find out more about it here.
