After welcoming a new baby, it can be hard (impossible?) to get to the gym. And yet, if you’re like me, healthy movement is vital to feeling good. Exercise boosts your mood and improves sleep quality, in addition to supporting physical recovery from pregnancy and birth. Because the real benefits of exercise are so great, and fitting it in during this time of life can be challenging, I designed this invigorating 10-minute workout with new moms in mind.
I often get messages from my exhausted new-mom patients asking what they can do about their flagging energy. Usually they’re at the four to six-month postpartum mark and wondering why they’re still so tired. The baby is starting to sleep more, they’re exercising again, they eat well but they can’t dig their way out of feeling totally depleted.
