"Bouncing Back" Postpartum

A lot of ladies want to know how they can get their bodies to "bounce back" quickly postpartum. Many mothers have contacted me concerned with when their pre-pregnancy bodies are coming back. One woman was wondering why after just 15 days her body wasn't back to the way she used to look.

1) You can't really compare yourself to anyone. Bodies come in all different shapes and sizes, and women are all different fitness levels pre-pregancy, while pregnant and postpartum.

2) It took your body 10 months to grow another human being! Give yourself time. It may take a year or more to get your pre-baby body back, but you have plenty of time to work on it! If your body isn't exactly the same, who cares?! You have an amazing baby(s) to show for it, now own it!
