5.0 out of 5 starsSome baby shower presents look good for a few weeks
10 May 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
Wow, is this ever through. EVERYTHING you might want to know about getting back in shape after being pregnant, is in this book. Pictures and diagrams of how to do the exercises, how long it should take to do the exercises.
Some baby shower presents look good for a few weeks, this book will be useful right away.
Warning, if you buy this book, don't leave it at the obstetrician's or pediatrician's waiting room as it will be gone when you get back.
LOVE this book! I'm on week one of the program (2 weeks pp) and have already noticed some improvement with my core strength and walking endurance. Pre- and during pregnancy I considered myself to be fairly fit (running, lifting weights, doing karate, etc) so the exerciss seemed way to easy when I first read about them. Boy was I wrong! It's amazing what a difference pregnancy and childbirth can make to your body. If I didn't have this book I probably would have pushed myself too hard too soon and ended up with pelvic floor issues.
Finally, I like how informative and easy to understand the background chapters are. They do a great job of explaining the changes that happen to your body during pregnancy and how the rehab exercises help to retrain your pre-pregnancy movement patterns.
This is an excellent, comprehensive book about exercising after pregnancy. It deals with specific issues I have noticed after pregnancy and before this book did not realize that it could be fixed and worked through. Exercise is important to me and this book gives permission to take care of yourself and gives steps that are specific to post pregnancy in excellent detail. It outlines the why, how and what in a way that is EASY to understand. I would recommend this to all new moms. So happy I got this book to learn how to take care of ME.
I’m a physical therapist and was looking for a post pregnancy rehab plan to follow (as “rehabbing yourself” typically does not go well!). I stumbled across this book and loved it!!!! The exercises were evidence based and were realistic- I did some while pumping at work or in the airport bathroom, or while throwing the ball for the dog at the park when it’s 0 degrees out! Thank you Kristin!!!
