Change is the only guarantee on the journey to becoming a new mom. In a short period of time, new moms experience emotional, physical, psychological and lifestyle change. The postpartum period, in particular, is often a delicate and emotionally taxing time for new moms. Everything is new and the healing process has just begun. New moms might be eager to “bounce back” and return to their pre-pregnancy state of physical fitness and emotional health, but the time period after baby arrives is often more challenging than anticipated. As health and exercise professionals, we need to care for our postpartum clients and help them navigate their new world by focusing on a positive mindset and the goal of being fit for life.
