Hey Mamas! Are you feeling ready to get your body moving again after having a baby? Looking to rebuild your core and find an effective and safe postpartum workout plan?
Then I couldn’t be happier to share this resource that I fully believe in with you.
It’s a postpartum workout plan I personally used called The Postpartum Cure. You guys know I’m alllll about staying healthy DURING and AFTER pregnancy, so when I found this course I, OF COURSE, had to share it!
A postpartum workout plan!
Let’s get a few things out of the way…Having a baby changes your body.
There’s no sugar-coating here. Ask some of the most fit-mamas out there, they will ALL agree with me. Pregnancy is a beautiful thing, but DAMN does it do something crazy to your body.
Some mamas find they are able to bounce back to their pre-pregnancy weight pretty quickly, others it takes a little while.
For me, I’m still not where I was BEFORE I got pregnant….but I’m close. My biggest complaint is that things just aren’t in the places they once were. 🤣
My pants aren’t too small, they just don’t fit right. If you are a mom, YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ‘BOUT.
A plan specific to postpartum will better target your needs
One very common problem I see with women trying to lose the baby weight is that they are just doing general programs. Or general exercises. Crunches here, cardio there. And, it’s not really effective.
News flash…they aren’t taking into the account that they’ve just had a FREAKING baby. Are you aware what happens when you have a baby? TRAUMA.
Ladies! If you want to lose POSTPARTUM weight, do a POSTPARTUM workout plan!
It’s really that easy. I mean, think about it. Wouldn’t you rather do a work-out that is tailored specifically for postpartum moms versus run on the treadmill next to some sweaty guy at the gym?
It is really important to focus on exercises that will help your body heal early on, THEN move into the exercises that will help you tone up and lose weight.
The best postpartum workout plan to reduce your tummy
First of all, I’m a labor and delivery nurse…not a fitness guru. I also have a flat booty, mom arms, and cellulite in places I don’t want to talk about. I totally look like your average mom. But guess who doesn’t look like your average mom? Your instructor!
Katie is a super fit mom of three. She struggled with postpartum healing after her first delivery, and ended up getting Diastasis Recti. She worked with a physical therapist to repair her scar tissue, and also to rebuild her pelvic floor. She’s got a lotta knowledge in postpartum recovery, which makes her a perfect guide!
What’s in this postpartum workout plan?
A LOT. I’ve personally read and watched through this entire program, and it is CHOCK full of awesome sauce.
1. You’ll learn the why behind the program
First, Katie takes you through an introduction to the course. She values her readers, and wants you to know that what you are getting is WORTH it!
I know that if I understand the why behind a method, series, or program I’m so much more likely to stick with it.
Katie teaches you the ins and outs of rebuilding your pelvic floor and why the specific exercise and plan she developed is going to give you the results you want!
2. Postpartum nutrition is covered, too!
Second, FOOD! I think we all know by now nutrition is the KEY to a healthy/fit body. Some argue it’s even more important than working out.
One important factor to take in while you work out in the postpartum period is…your milk supply! It can be difficult to maintain an adequate milk supply for some people when they begin exercising after birth..
If you over-do it, or don’t eat right, your milk supply can plummet. Luckily, Kaite is well aware of this and it’s actually her NUMBER ONE priority in creating this course. Keep the liquid gold flowin’!
Some of the postpartum nutrition info includes:
- 20 Most Healing Postpartum Recovery Foods
- Sample Meal Plan After Birth + Recipes
- Complete Guide to Milk Supply Boosters + Supplements
- Protein for postpartum weightloss
- And my personal fave…How to Calculate Calories While Breastfeeding
3. Nine complete postpartum workouts!
So, first Katie HEALS your body in the first 6-8 weeks. Nothing strenuous, nothing active. Until you get cleared by your doctor (usually 6 weeks for a vaginal delivery, 8 week for a cesarean), most docs say little to no exercise other than carrying your babe.
So, this is ALL she wants you to do in these first few weeks…eat healthy and heal your body. She goes over finding your pelvic floor, correctly carrying baby to PROTECT your core, and POSTURE!
Once you’ve hit that 6-8 week mark, it’s time to start the workouts! There are NINE! The best part about all the workouts, too, is she has cute little GIFs of herself demonstrating the exercise, so you always stay on track.
I personally loved WORKOUT NINE: ALL BOOTY! (I need all the help I can get in the booty department)
It was HARD. My booty was sore the next day!
What’s the best thing about this postpartum workout plan?
The price tag! Right now, you can get this WHOLE program for $37!
Another AWESOME thing: There’s a personalized Facebook group you can join for support! Every mama who buys this course has access to a private support group led by Katie where you can ask questions, and connect with other moms!
I, personally, am always a fan of postpartum workout plans (or any workout program) that have the ease into it vibe. And, this is totally what this program is based upon. Healing first, repair, and strengthening second!
