Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast!
When I was first pregnant, I was overprotective of everything I did. What I ate, what I did for exercise, where I spent my energy,...etc., that I almost did nothing.
But hindsight is 20/20 and I now realize that severe restriction wasn’t necessary.
Most first-time moms fall into this trap of fear, letting it hold them back from what is good in pregnancy, and worse, what is actually beneficial for their baby.
Joining this conversation is my guest, Carly Kennedy, a mom of two, a fitness professional, and the creator behind the online fitness community and soon-to-launch app, The Fit Mom Method.
As a certified Prenatal & Postnatal Corrective Exercise Specialist and Fitness Trainer with over a decade of experience, Carly combines her expert knowledge of functional movement with safe, effective, science-based exercises to empower you through pregnancy, revive your core postpartum, and thrive in motherhood.
In our discussion, Carly explains more about the importance of fitness during pregnancy and tips for ensuring safe and proper movement. We also talk about the benefits of prenatal exercise, as well as how to boost those crucial endorphins to aid in support and healing postpartum.
Some big takeaways are:
It’s common for first-time moms to look to their doctors for guidance in everything prenatal. And while doctors are absolutely skilled at reproductive health and labor and delivery, they are not necessarily experts in things like nutrition and fitness.
It’s so important to seek out the experts in a field because that is where you’ll receive the most help.
