3 steps to ‘bounce back’ after birth at your own pace

3 steps to ‘bounce back’ after birth at your own pace

Okay so we’ve gotta say something before we start. The pressure to ‘bounce back’ after your baby can be super unhelpful, especially because ever mamma has a totally different body and a totally different pregnancy and birth experience. The last thing you need is to push yourself to change your body super quickly when it’s already been through so much.

It’s also true though that a lot of mammas look in the mirror after pregnancy and do not remotely recognise the body that they see, which can be really tough. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to change that reflection and feel your absolute best.

This is the only 3-step plan you need to transform the skin texture of your midsection and shrink those inches. Ready to go?

Straight after birth: Start healing your stretch marks and loose skin

We probs don’t have to tell you but your skin stretches a lot during pregnancy. 9 months of stretching can create our old friend stretch marks, and make your stomach look super saggy months (and even years!) after you give birth. 

Exercise and diet is super important - we’re gonna get to those later - but they don’t tackle loose skin and stretch marks. You need something specialized and targeted.

    3 snacks to help you shed postpartum pounds

    A long-term weight loss plan that stays off needs to include lean proteins, fiber, healthy fats, and lots of fruits and veggies. These three snacks are delicious, essential if you wanna drop pounds, and full of extra benefits. 

  • Plain Greek yogurt. With fruit, with chopped nuts and seeds, or use it as a low fat ingredient. This high protein, high healthy fat food can do pretty much anything.
  • Nut butters. Peanut butter and other nut butters are gonna fill you up fast, work with all kinds of fruits and vegetables, and will massively increase your daily nutrients, fat and protein. Keep your quantities strict though!
  • Eggs. Good ol’ reliable eggs. Scramble ‘em, omelete ‘em, poach ‘em. They’re an instant guilt-free source of protein and flavor.

  • 3 workouts to help you shrink & tighten your mom pouch


    Whether you’re starting slow or ready to pump it in a high intensity class, these three workouts are essential additions to your routine.

  • Bicycle crunches. Engage every single stomach muscle by touching opposite elbows and knees together as you come up during crunches. 
  • Windshield wipers. This is a tough one but you’ll be addicted once you get the hang of it. Lie on your back, hold your legs up at 90 degrees, then move them back and forth like a wiper.
  • Scissor kicks. Can you say exhausting??? Lie down with your arms flat on the floor, engage that core and scissor your legs. 

  • Ready to bounce back? Hard work and a healthy lifestyle will help you achieve your goal. Whatever pace you’re working at, this three step program is essential for transforming your post-baby body and feeling awesome. Don’t ever tell yourself you can’t. You CAN and you WILL!
