Because parenting is far from perfect, isn’t it?
pregnancy and postpartum is challenging. It’s…
…peeing when you laugh too hard (yep!)
And sometimes? It’s losing your identity in the middle of GIVING SO MUCH TO SO MANY.
The truth is, all you want to do is give your mind and body the same TLC you give your little ones, so you can FINALLY feel like some version of your old self again.
because you want to feel like more than someone’s care taker?
You’re a powerful person with a right to a HEALTH-FULL and JOY-FILLED LIFE.
How do I know? Because I’m a mom who feels just like you, trying to find more understanding of WHO I AM through this adventure. I use fitness and movements that put my joy and well-being at the center of my healing.
I’m Jessie Mundell, mama-in-charge at JessieMundell.com, and I’m an expert in all things pregnancy and postpartum exercise, birth recovery, strength training and how to help you stop peeing when you sneeze.
(By the way, “TMI” isn’t in my vocabulary. It went out the window with my “perfect parent” rule book long ago!)
I’m also an expert in prenatal and postnatal exercise with a Bachelor’s degree in Health & Physical Education, and a Masters in Kinesiology. I’m a go-to support system for fitness that works to strengthen and heal, while building a confidence that gives pregnant and postpartum people the tools to re-define one’s relationship with their body and their worth.
But, I didn’t always approach health and fitness this way. When I first started working with parents years ago at a pre/postnatal gym, I fell into the same problematic philosophies that so many health and fitness coaches still do to this day. I focused on helping moms “fix” their bodies, get back to their “pre-pregnancy bods,” instead of empowering folks in the body they inhabited post-pregnancy. A body that was just as CAPABLE now as it was before, but that simply needed a little extra love and support.
