FREE POSTPARTUM RECOVERY GUIDE

quick-postpartum-recovery-guide-cover

METHOD AND PHILOSOPHY

I firmly believe every should should have a comprehensive postpartum assessment. Childbirth and recovery is as serious as and broken bone or other injury since the complications can be life threatening. Take your healing into your own hands because none knows your body better than yourself. Your normal does not have to be feeling bad or in pain all the time. You should be able to enjoy the things you love and if you cannot ask for help until someone listens.  Nutrition and fitness  targeted towards the specific needs of women and mothers will get you on there!   

Let’s sort your life and have a deep chat about every little detail that is meaningful to you. When you are organized everything seems to flow. I’ve spent numerous years working as a lifestyle coordinator for CEO’s and business owners to help them in every aspect of their lives. Every mother needs a helping hand and eagle eye!

Nutrition is paramount for mothers, weight management and well-being. We will work through your schedule to design a meal prep plan, get your blood sugar balanced, unprocess your pantry and build lifelong habits.

If you have never rehabbed your core after childbirth it may not be completely functional. I have worked with women in their 70’s who went through a lifetime of pain until we rehabbed their core.

Together we will hash out a fitness routine you can do anywhere regardless of your schedule. My methods will teach you how to rehab your core, strengthen it and meet your fitness goals.  

Learn how your body works and build sensorial acuity. Gain skills and resources to balance your life puzzle as well as destress when the going gets tough.

When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.

BALANCE YOUR LIFE

Take charge of how you look and feel. Pay attention to pain, illness, injury, hormonal balance, digestion, elimination, water retention, dry skin, hair loss/growth, healing, and nail growth. Sometimes seemingly mundane symptoms can be a sign of a larger problem when they are all put together.
Postpartum Depression (PPD) is no joke and goes beyond the baby blues. Mental health for new mothers can also be attributed to hormonal imbalance. Pay attention to happiness, sadness, stress, how you react to others and your relationships. Future yourself.
Exercise, playtime, strength training and massage all count towards calorie burning. Daily activity is a must to help your body deliver nutrients efficiently and detoxify the bodies largest organ, your skin.
Nutrition is perhaps the hardest part of health because it is a daily/lifelong endeavor. Anything you consume can affect your overall health. Make time to prep food and cook. Whole food meals balanced with starchy carbs, fibrous carbs, healthy fats, and lean proteins every meal will help keep blood sugar balanced. Moving you one step closer to hormonal balance. 
Mommies are known for nesting so undesirable living or work conditions can cause major stress. Environment also plays a huge factor in aging and disease. Water quality, pollution, contamination, and air quality should all be taken into account when surveying the quality of your surroundings. 
Becoming the best exception of yourself requires lifelong commitment. Improving your educational standings and developing skills builds confidence/security. Embracing your own and different cultures is also a great way to build your worldly/humanitarian side. 
No matter what religion you practice developing empathy, emotional quotient, interpersonal reflection and inward beauty will help in your journey to be able to give and receive love without feeling depleted. 
Time management may be the most important section because it organizes your whole life. Minimizing procrastination, distractions and learning to ask for help can make all the difference in minimizing stress. Cut out the drama and just do things when you think of them or add schedule immediately.
Chores are a necessary evil. Having a clean organized home decreases stress but is not always easy to do when little ones make the mess as fast as you can clean. Children as young as 2 years old can take responsibility for things like putting away. 
I find curating a child’s play environment, helping them put away toys at the end each activity, involving them in household duties, making sure their blood sugar stays level and physical activity helps to keep children from making messes.   

When you look good, you feel good. Beauty is more than skin deep. Eating a large variety of whole foods, staying hydrated and paying attention to your skin, nails, hair can keep you looking younger and vibrant longer or alert you to imbalanced/deficiencies.

No one has ever said they do not want to age gracefully. Beauty is not about wearing makeup everyday and styling your hair but about taking care of yourself, good hygiene and feeling confident. It’s about letting your outward appearance reflect how beautiful you are on the inside.

Self care is just as important as taking care of your loved ones so don’t feel bad or guilty for doing something nice for yourself!   

Regardless of how you execute your purpose/career the general idea is to help others and touch lives. Career and purpose do not have to be one in the same. 
If you are lucky enough to have your career be the thing that satisfies and fulfills you… awesome!  For many of us this is not the case and to truly find what you are passionate about may take lots of journaling, researching, exploring and contemplation. 

One thing I know for sure when you do find your purpose and career being the same thing it’s scary, exciting, liberating, challenging and stressful at times but you keep driving forward because seeing the outcome of your work is great!  

Financial stress is very good at finding the weak links in a relationship and breaking them. No matter how much money you make having a budget is necessary. Material possessions can be great but knowing what is truly beneficial and just excess is helpful. Having a spending hangover is no fun especially when you have children to feed.
Whether you are married, coupled, single or dating having someone in your corner makes being a parent easier. Your SO can be anyone who helps you (parent, nanny, baby sitter, mommies group or partner).
This relationship requires a lot of nurturing, communication, give and take from both parties. Elevating your emotional quotient (EQ) and being able to clearly communicate without taking things personally will help keep things running smoothly.    
Take the time to hang out with your friends and have nights out without the kiddos. Staying connected to those you hold dear can help you through tough times and make you not feel as if your life has done a complete 180˚. Not to mention starting your own family is the perfect time to make new traditions.
