I have had four babies, my first when I was twenty five, my last when I was forty one! Post pregnancy fitness and diet was on my mind following each birth, and was tricky to maintain for one reason or another. When I was younger I think I physical recovery was easier, except after my first baby who was born by emergency c-section. My diet did improve every time I weaned one of my babies onto ‘our’ food, as I tended to make more home made food for them – and the rest of my family. I have always walked more with each new baby, there is nothing quite like walking along pushing your gorgeous new pram with your little bundle of joy snuggled up inside!
I was really interested to read this research from Mamas and Papas into post pregnancy fitness and diet. Us mums know that having a baby changes every aspect of our life, and it can have a positive effect on our fitness and diet too! So why not embrace your new baby even more and find a new healthier you together!
What do you think of the research and the findings?
