Postpartum Core Injuries are More Common Than You Think

Postpartum Core Injuries are More Common Than You Think


This is so common…You are not alone!

Thank you to Niki Jones for sharing her story!

My personal back injury postpartum is how I actually got started into this world of core rehab.

Waking up each day with debilitating back pain, daily frustration and dumbfounded doctors, I knew there had to be another way.

Another way, a BETTER way, not only for me since I injured my back, but another way for all the moms out there struggling.

The struggle is real…in every way.

👉🏾We have weight loss goals and expectations that don’t match our current bodies or realities as a new mom

👉🏾We aren’t sure where to turn or what to do when things “don’t feel right down there”

👉🏾We push ourselves and don’t listen to our bodies and their needs or messages

👉🏾When things aren’t feeling right we go see practitioners and doctors to help us but get limited results

👉🏾We enrol in mom and baby bootcamp or yoga or workout classes because we want our workouts to be led but end up in pain, worse shape or leaking pee when we jump or run

👉🏾We are still peeing our pants years later or being recommended for surgeries that don’t help long term

What is a FitMama to do?

Well look no further!

Check out the videos and recommendations I have provided on the Love FitMama YouTube channel as well as in The Love FitMama Way book.

Transforming the core of motherhood happens as we all highlight and share the stories of injury, pain, releasing old conditioning, fear and issues postpartum that keep us all stuck.

Don’t buy into the myth that looking a certain way after baby is your source of self-worth.

You are worthy already FitMama and losing weight is NOT your life’s purpose.

Just getting started on core rehab and needing to support your core?

  1. Book an appointment with a pelvic floor physiotherapist who can tell you exactly what’s happening in your deep core and pelvic floor.
  2. Schedule time for you to sit and breathe first. Before all the other “stuff” gets done. Core transformation starts from within – and you can do it yourself from the comfort of your own home – WHEN you create the time and space for it (yes, you create time).
  3. Start here to safely work your core.

Keep me posted on how things are going for you and share this with a FitMama who is still in pain or peeing her pants, be the one who shares with her, “You don’t have to live like that!”

Much love,

Jen 💞
