Find yourself snippy with your child as they smell every single flower on the way home, cause your body is aching and you are counting the seconds until you can start parenting from the couch.
Wonder where your abs and butt disappeared to. How are you supposed to strengthen them if you can't even find them?
Wonder if how your body feels is normal. Are you supposed to feel this way or is something wrong?
Are exhausted all the time, like really, ALL THE TIME.
You can't seem to get a nice full breath no matter how hard you try.
Have pelvic floor issues, prolapse, or diastasis recti and have stopped doing anything cause you're scared that you'll make it worse than it is already.
Push through all the to do's every day but you never make it to the top of the list.
Feel disconnected from your body. Your lower back and shoulders are always sore and your core feels so weak.
...you know if you don't do something you'll end up feeling like you're trapped in a body that isn't yours for the rest of your life, resenting your beautiful family and becoming 'that mom'
That's not what you want for you or your family!
I got real curious
and then voracious about what was going on in my body and how bodies worked, especially mom's bodies.
How does pregnancy and childbirth change how the body works?
Major body nerd over here.
I studied, experimented, took courses
and raged against the lack of support and knowledge in the medical system that leaves moms to figure this out on their own or suffer silently.
Then I started to share my learning.
Ask your family for support with this! It will make a difference to have that support.
During those 20 minutes, I will lead you through some awareness building, release work and strength work for your body and give you a prompt that will help you connect to your heart.
I know you can do this.
You can do anything for 5 days.
Each day we will address one of five areas that most moms complain about and need to release and retrain after pregnancy and childbirth.
'Did it! Even at the end of THE toughest parenting day on record. Thanks for the guidance!
Thank you for putting on this challenge. It feels like it is just what I need right now.
This challenge is the perfect kick start for me to take my body (and my connection to it) more seriously, and give myself the time I deserve.
I thought my back was starting to “go” yesterday morning but I feel like these exercises have helped because I no longer have that feeling of being on the edge of something happening!
The lengthening and neck rolling were so effective, feeling some tension released already and will definitely continue with this.
Once again - it feels good. Not just the movements, but the fact that I was actually able to sit down and focus on myself

Rebalancing the body after pregnancy and childbirth doesn't have to be hard but it needs to be done.
Our bodies adapt so much!
When we have no ab support, our backs, hip flexors, neck and shoulders step up to help out. That works wonderfully in the short term but is a terrible long term solution. Those muscles end up working too hard at a job they aren't great at and they start complaining.
Hello aches and pains.
A little bit of retraining makes all the difference.
I'm so excited to share a bit of what I've learned with you.
