Celebrate Your New Body
You are a mom and your body is doing amazing things. If you just gave birth, your body just grew a baby! Holy moly, that’s a lot of work. And if you’re breastfeeding, you’re body is doing all the work to nourish your infant. Amazing! So let’s take a couple minutes and set you up for success. Let’s start by celebrating your new body.
Keep eating well
You probably paid close attention to what you ate while pregnant, so keep it up. Your body actually needs more calories to breastfeed than it did when pregnant. So keep eating a little extra.
Dump the scale
It’s just a number. We know that weight and BMI doesn’t tell us very much. Give yourself time to figure out your new world. You are not defined by any number.
Be kind to yourself
Love your body. No one is perfect and our imperfections make us who we are. One shape does not fit all. What’s one thing about you you love? Be positive about who you are on the inside and out.

Embrace your new mom-bod
In the first year after you’ve given birth there are so many changes! If you’re breastfeeding your boobs are changing. If your healing from natural birth or C-sections your knees to your navel are totally different. Let me tell you something- your precious new baby doesn’t care. You’re just mom.
Your baby sees you and how you treat yourself
Set an example by what you do. Your little one may be too little to care today, but tomorrow they will mimic what you do. This includes everything from what you eat to self-care.
