There are three major essentials for a fast postpartum recovery, if you want to completely heal your body fast, and allow your body to recover, gain strength and thrive postpartum. I believe a fast postpartum recover depends on nourishing yourself, rehabilitating yourself and ultimately strengthening your body again. I learned the hard way the essentials for a fast postpartum recovery because I didn’t focus on these components until I had my third baby. T Postpartum recovery is like healing from major surgery. Your body basically exploded a baby it carried for 9 months, it now needs special attention, nourishment and care to put itself back together. Think about this, your insides actually game out…this only happens if someone goes into surgery to get something removed…and that is a big deal. I created a whole program to help mamas nourish their bodies and heal their core and pelvic floor, as well…

Deciding when your body is ready to workout postpartum isn’t just up to your doctor, or the 6-week timeline. There are many other factors that play into whether your body is ready to start working out postpartum, especially if you are breastfeeding.

Eating smart is so important for breastfeeding. It can literally make or break your milk supply and postpartum weight loss goals. Our bodies are designed to thrive off of nutrients from the foods we eat. When we deprive our bodies of essential nutrients, and lots of them, we are taking away the building blocks for breast milk, repairing cells after birth and ultimately having the nutrients we need to signal to our body it is okay to let go of fat. Yep, you heard that right. If your body doesn’t have enough nutrients, it won’t want to let go of the fat it stored to make breast milk. During pregnancy, our body stores water and nutrients in our fat cells to help produce colostrum and breast milk once baby arrives. It is a natural process to shed water and fat after birth while breastfeeding. Your body is also ready to…

Six weeks postpartum is a big milestone, but it also comes with sometimes some new and unnerving experiences that I know I wasn’t ready for at all. When baby first arrives, six weeks feels so far away. Everything is new, exciting and exhausting. But, I promise, before you know it, you will be walking into your doctor’s office, or meeting with your midwife to get the all-clear for normal life. The all-clear is the exciting part, but the reality after can be unnerving and surprising because you don’t always feel “all-clear.” My third postpartum experience has by far been the best one. I actually felt all-clear, had a great healing experience (not to mention super fast delivery), mostly because of all the nutrition and fitness lessons I learned. I put together a super unique, postpartum recovery program that goes over how to nourish your body postpartum for recovery. Your body…

I have a great list of resources to help you with all things breastfeeding and milk supply. I’ve breastfed three babies now, all successfully for over a year, so I’ve learned what resources are actually helpful, and which ones aren’t. Some resources are educational, and some are items that are just plain lifesavers. If you are feeling scared to breastfeed, or worried you won’t have enough milk, start with these resources and you will find yourself feeling prepared, and much less worried! My Favorite Educational Resource: Milkology I WISH, WISH I had this with my first pregnancy. I would have been much more prepared and knowledgeable on all things breastfeeding. I didn’t even know what breast milk was comprised of, or the importance of breastfeeding a lot. I always felt a bit guilty because of how much I breastfed my babies…literally whenever they wanted. Other moms would as me my…
