1. You’ll never get your body back?
LIES, LIES and more LIES. Don’t ever listen to anyone who says ‘you’ll never get back to the shape you were once in’. This is one of the most misleading myths out there. Yes, of course it takes time and effort for your body to go back to the way it was. But it will get there. Most women are deconditioned during pregnancy because they can’t to the same standard of activity that they might be use too. Or even simple daily tasks came become quite difficult especially closer to the due date. Plus the fact that your body has been through a lot of trauma with pregnancy, from changes in posture, muscle imbalances and direct trauma from child birth. Of course this takes work to get back from, especially when you have a new-born baby thrown into the mix. What I’m trying to say is that, yes it’s hard to get body back straight after having a baby but it is 100% achievable, it just takes patient and hard work. Give yourself a break, your body has been through so many changes over the past 9 months. If someone had an injury you would expect them to take a while to recovery and to do the right rehab to get back to pre-injury performance. Well it’s the same thing with pregnancy, you’re body has been through hell and back. You’re pelvic floor and abdominals are probably very tired and weak. It’s all about not overloading the body too soon and causing more damage. If you practice the correct techniques and exercises, you can be better and stronger than you ever were before.
