Hi friends! Happy Thursday! I’ve got a new episode up on the ‘pod and today I’m chatting with Daisy Andrea Bravo about abs after baby.
When you hear “abs after baby,” it’s easy to think about getting a six-pack (or getting your six-pack back) because that’s the messaging that we’re constantly bombarded with online. I’m not talking about the appearance of your abs (even though that can be a nice bonus), but we’re talking about FUNCTION. Restoring core awareness post-pregnancy is a huge piece of the recovery puzzle and I’m excited that Daisy is here to share her insights on one of my favorite fitness topics.
We also chat about:
– Considerations for prenatal fitness
– Why everyone should see a pelvic floor PT
– Some of her favorite exercises for core awareness
– Postpartum recovery
If you’re not familiar with Daisy and her work, here’s a little bit more about her.
