Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast!
I’d say that most moms have the privilege of experiencing pregnancy in a somewhat normal world.
But the pregnancy and postpartum journey my guest experienced was anything BUT normal.
Arina Knowlton works in Global Health Research with a lifelong passion for all things physical activity and wellness. In addition to her day job, she runs a virtual fitness coaching business to encourage women to put themselves back on their "to-do" lists.
She survived not only being a newlywed during the pandemic but also survived pregnancy and postpartum!
In this episode, we discuss her pregnancy and postpartum story during such a stressful time, how she coped with her anxiety while also being isolated, and hear more about the unexpected hurdles she had to navigate while trying to prioritize her physical activity postpartum.
Some big takeaways are:
Arina made a great point during our conversation - we have to take personal responsibility to seek out resources and educate ourselves about pregnancy and postpartum.
And one easy way to do that is to sign up for the Planning For Postpartum Workshop!
