Easing back into exercise after childbirth is imperative from a woman’s long-term health, yet after a doctor gives the green light for all activity at the 6-8 week checkup, a women is typically left to her own devices, whether she delivered vaginally or via c-section. As a result, a new mother may overdo it when exercising without rehabilitative guidance, or may avoid fitness altogether for fear of damage.

AMC's “From the Core: Postnatal Recovery" class combines a rehabilitative element with functional exercise as well as education on how women can safely ease back into exercise, safely, post-baby. Issues we address in class include but not limited to:
✔️abdominal wall separation,
✔️ c-section,
✔️ pelvic floor muscle strength,
✔️re-activation of core stability muscles, such as Transversus and glutes,
✔️mechanics of lifting and caring for a newborn (and toddler),
✔️ and ideal posture to help women be their strongest, fittest self.

If you are a new mom in Chicago, join us for our next 6-week Postnatal Recovery session beginning March 7. ✨Save $20 with early bird registration.

"I want other people to see the raw beauty in being pregnant and how helpful it is to stay in shape not only for wellness, but for stress relief, shorter labor times, easier pushing, emotional wellness during childbirth and a much quicker recovery.”

Another example that shows you can continue your pre-pregnancy fitness routine during pregnancy. #fitpregnancy

We can't talk enough about "What You Should Know About Postpartum Pain & Childbirth Injuries". Mamas, if you are experiencing any of these common issues, seek help. No stigma attached. Look into it further before it's a bigger issue. #postpartum #childbirth

Do you have a short-term fitness goal? How about a long-term fitness goal for the year? Take out a piece of paper and physically write your goals down. Then share your goals with someone close to you and leave your goals out somewhere where you can see them, like your computer. Taking the time to visit with your goals each day is one way to stay conscious and tuned in to what you need to do. #goals2017 #fittip #motivationmonday
