I have lots of new moms joining our programs after baby. The constant theme is, “I need to get back into shape after baby.” This is SO important not only for mom, because she feels better about herself,decreases her chances of post partum depression, and heals much quicker, but
also for baby and family! She will be able to run and play with the kids, get up and down off the floor 1000 times a day, and purely enjoy life with her babies. But I think it is…
