I’m so glad you stopped by.
Since having my daughter I discovered this insane
passion to learn as much as I could about returning to exercise after having a baby. From my own experience having incontinence due to pelvic floor dysfunction and an exercise induced prolapse, I figured I mustn’t be the only one with so much uncertainty.
"This wasn’t something I was prepared for and I didn’t know the risks that were involved."
You don’t know what you don’t know right? I just remember feeling upset, frustrated and impatient with the process, just wanting to run without leaking or feeling like my insides would fall out. Being symptomatic sucks but at least I have the warning signs, many women don’t and wouldn’t even know. Having this experience has given me so much more love and respect for my body, I know what it is capable of and just because one exercise may not be right for me, doesn’t mean it’s not right for you. That is ultimately what Mamas Journeys offers, scalable fitness sessions to cater for everyone from the complete beginner to an avid gym goer, no matter how far postnatal.
The Roller Coaster Ride of Motherhood
When I’m not talking about tummies, vaginas or butts my life involves one special little lady. The girl who tipped my world upside down, spun me around and placed me back on my feet again. She certainly came into this world for a reason and teaches me every single day.
My values in life are growth and connection, which can sometimes be in conflict when thinking about them from a work and then family perspective. I’ve learned my daughter is my spiritual grounder, she always brings me back down to earth and reminds me what is truly important in this thing called life. Family is everything.
