I am so grateful you are here. Thank you. I see you and I want to help you succeed with your pregnancy journey.
This is a little embarrassing to be sharing as a personal trainer.
I made some "mistakes" during my first pregnancy but now looking back I see everything as blessings.
As I have learned so much and that is why I am here today sharing this with you.
So you don't have to go down the long, hard road I did.
Let me tell you a quick story about:
- how I was clueless how to really workout safely while protecting my core the right way during my first pregnancy
- how I knew I wanted to stay fit and active during pregnancy but didn't fully know how to exactly do that
- how I didn't fully understand the importance of a deep strong core and pelvic floor for a safe postpartum recovery
- when I realized I suffered from a 3 finger ab separation also known as diastasis recti after my first kid and then got pregnant again little over a year later and was so nervous about getting it again after second baby
- how I figured out how to workout differently and smarter the second time around while running after a toddler and got better results
At the time I was trying to take BETTER care of my core during my second pregnancy without worrying...
if I was doing it right or wrong...
while taking care of my 18 month old daughter and husband while keeping a hot dinner on the table... and running my online business.
I was struggling with feeling truly confident in what I was doing was helping my core... constantly worrying if I would get a bad diastasis recti again...
or would it be even worse after second baby...fitting in the time to do the core work necessary to help.
And I was getting more and more nervous and scared with what would happen.
Then I had an epiphany:
I realized my lifestyle habits and ...
how I worked out (frontal positions, too much jumping, etc) played a huge part in if I was going to get an ab separation again
Which meant I had to...
focus more on my daily habits and change what exercises I did in my workouts as well.
I learned a lot from my first pregnancy with...how I worked out and how I trained my core was a different and better the second time.
I didn't do much modifications in my workouts during my first pregnancy because I felt good, so why modify...
I realized even though I felt good doesn't mean that... I shouldn't still make adjustments as my belly got bigger.
Plus I was NOT DOING ANY SPECIFIC CORE WORK during my first pregnancy.
Another mistake I learned the hard way.
Second pregnancy I got smarter.
I worked out differently and I trained my deep core muscles every day.
I felt amazing during my second pregnancy plus...
I had a MUCH faster labor and push time and better postpartum recovery.
And I didn't have as big of an ab separation postpartum this time... which was HUGE relief for me since that was one of my main worry during my second pregnancy.
Then I discovered deep core breathing .
At that point, everything changed!
I finally figured out how to:
Really connect with my deep core muscles properly to keep them strong to help prevent diastasis postpartum, have a better labor
Change a few simple lifestyle habits that made a huge difference
Workout smarter that I wasn't putting any extra pressure on my growing belly but was able to stay fit during it while protecting my core
Because I discovered deep core breathing, I was able to:
Have extreme confidence in myself and my core strength
Enjoy my second pregnancy with less worry and stress
