Lose the Preoccupation with Losing the ‘Baby Weight’


I had the pleasure of writing a guest blog post for Pre/Postnatal Fitness Expert, Philippa Bowman at Nurtured Fitness. Philippa is passionate about helping Mums make fitness a functional & normal activity within family life.

The guest post is titled ‘Lose the Preoccupation with Losing the ‘Baby Weight’.

In this post, I imagined talking to a dear friend of mine and wrote down what I would say to her. I touch on the following topics:

  • Is losing the ‘baby weight’ avoiding a deeper issue?
  • Self-care.
  • Why losing the ‘baby weight’ is harmful.
  • How to eat well.
  • Why you don’t need to lose the ‘baby weight’.
