A Flatter Belly Without Weight Loss
A no-nonsense approach to factors that affect belly shape
These pictures are all of the same woman on the same day.
Most people assume that if your belly isn't flat, then you need to lose weight. Or do ab exercises. Now, this might work for the general population, but postpartum women can be different.
The Mama Made Strong program is a systematic approach to help you make sense of your postpartum body. And A Flatter Belly Without Weight Loss will give you an insider glimpse into how it all works. In short, it will show you the far-reaching effect of one small piece of the postpartum puzzle - posture.
Even before my triplets were born, I knew my recovery would be difficult. But I assumed I could fall back on decades of physical conditioning and my expertise as a physical therapist and a Board-certified specialist in Orthopedics. Instead, 35 weeks of a triplet pregnancy and the monumental task of caring for 3 babies quickly humbled me.
When my physical recovery stalled, I tried a few reputable online programs. No luck. Growing ever more frustrated, I began to study courses for physical therapists who treat postpartum women. Only by breaking this information into smaller and smaller pieces could I finally see the compensations I'd constructed around a childhood injury. In combination with the effects of pregnancy, at last, I had my answers.
Over several months, I peeled away the movement patterns that blocked my progress and built a system of introspection and focused effort. I fleshed it out to cover multiple possible scenarios and then shared it with other mothers and physical therapists. They returned with terrific feedback for fine-tuning and with success in solving an array of issues. Instead of following one singular routine, this tailored exercise prescription meets unique needs and delivers hard-to-find results. Now, I'm so pleased to be able to share it with you.
