Katie is a mom of three boys, all close in age, who’s experienced many of the not-so-fun aspects of postpartum recovery. She is also highly educated in physical therapy (worked as a PT aid for 2 years and studied in school), Pilates (completed the BASI instructor course and taught for 1 year), and nutrition. She has been an athlete all her life, playing soccer, riding horses competitively and a runner. Knowing as much about fitness as she does, she didn’t correlate the intense need for healing and restoration after birth. She assumed she would go back to normal being young and fit, but was shocked to experience a need for healing, rehabilitation and more.
Katie created The Postpartum Cure to help other mamas navigate through postpartum recovery without having the same sense of shock and confusion she did. She wants mamas to learn to heal their bodies, nourish their bodies and take time to put things back together, before embarking on a fitness journey to lose weight. There is no holistic program like this, that takes you through three phases of the postpartum recovery. The first phase is healing and nourishing, the second is building strength and the third is getting fit and losing the baby weight. Katie has done it three times, all learning so much each time, and putting her knowledge and education to practical use for all postpartum mamas to benefit from.
I have a very specialized program for postpartum mamas looking to heal, nourish and regain their strength. I really struggled healing after my first child, and even went through pelvic floor physical therapy for weeks to manage scar tissue that developed from tearing. I have experience studying nutrition, physical therapy and I taught Pilates, so I’ve put together a program I wish I would’ve followed from the beginning.
A program that first heals your body through specialized movements and nourishing foods. Foods are so essential to your body finding the nutrients it needs to put itself back together again. Your postpartum body needs special care in the first 4-6 weeks where you focus on regaining strength and properly fueling your body for breastfeeding.
This program then moves you into gaining physical fitness back. I will never forget the first time I tried to go for a run around 12 weeks postpartum after my first baby. I didn’t do any strength work, so I was literally jelly. I had lost all my extra fat and my previous muscle. So depressing. I was barely able to start gaining it back before I got pregnant and sick again with my second. I’ve learned so much on maintaining muscle postpartum through a unique diet and Pilates routines. I walk you through all of this too!
Lastly, I take you into a workout program to combine with a meal plan to help you lose the baby weight, not your milk!! !
I created this program to be affordable and realistic for new mams!
