Tips on exercise during and after pregnancy.
Pre/post pregnancy video exercise tips.
As someone who has worked with many women and mothers who feel dissatisfied with their bodies, I can tell you that body hate and disordered eating do not discriminate. It impacts so many of us. For women, we are particularly at risk during times of change in our lives - puberty, college, marriage, divorce, pregnancy/postpartum, and menopause are a few of those times. And what’s even worse, as if body shame wasn’t enough to deal with, many of us feel shame about feeling body shame. We keep it a secret. We don’t talk about it. We feel embarrassed about not exuding body love. We pretend that things are fine while the thoughts and concerns about our bodies get stronger and more intrusive. I see a lot of mothers who feel sort of stuck between the “body positive, embrace yourself” world and the "diet down, be happier when you’re thinner" world. They want to be body-positive but they just aren’t there yet. If that’s you, you are not alone. Many people who feel accepting and loving towards their bodies likely arrived there with some effort.
