Changing the way moms recover from childbirth
Women who go through childbirth have stretched out, weak and uncoordinated core muscles and connective tissue, yes...even athletic moms. But this is not a lost cause. Your tissue and muscles CAN regain function, strength, and stability again through proper reconditioning.
Simply doing crunches and isolated "kegels" will not properly retrain the inner core (and can make things worse) Women deserve to know how to get their core back and what can be done DURING and AFTER pregnancy to offset many problems such as the common "belly bulge" core weakness, diastasis recti, stress incontinence, prolapse, back pain, posture issues and more.
What makes MomBod Fitness different from other Pre/Post Natal programs out there?
MomBod Fitness is about helping moms keep and regain inner core strength throughout pregnancy and beyond. Proper core exercises are a must and sometimes a Maternity support is needed during pregnancy. After childbirth ReCORE and the Post-Natal FITsplint is recommended for every postpartum mom to regain core coordination, strength, function and stability. With ReCORE, the stretched out muscles and tissue WILL strengthen and shorten, the spine and hips become stable, posture and proper breathing patterns improve, the pelvic floor will regain strength ...and yes, a trimmer, stronger waist is a great benefit.
"As a sports medical professional, I've helped athletes restabilize their core muscles and decrease low back pain. But, I've never had to start with the very basic exercises needed for someone who had just had a baby and had all their abdominal muscles and tissue stretched and weakened! This was truly an eye-opening experience, and I'm so glad that I worked with Celeste on building on the basics of my strength before I tried any of the more advanced and difficult exercises I know from treating athletes..."
-From Mary, an athletic trainer who used the Maternity FITsplint, wore it post-partum and did the ReCORE program.

ULTIMATE MATERNITY SUPPORT
5 Prenatal Core Exercises Included Inside!
After childbirth women have some degree of abdominal separation (stretching of connective tissue and muscles). It is not guaranteed to shorten on its own. Wear after delivery for up to 6 weeks. The FITsplint will pull and hold stretched out rectus abdominal muscles close together for an effective recovery (while doing ReCORE or safe corrective exercises).

**If you are currently pregnant and want to buy the Post-Natal FITsplint ahead of time, buy a size larger than your pre-pregnancy waist.

Total core reconditioning (6 weeks)
Every woman needs proper core reconditioning after pregnancy and childbirth. Moms have access to lactation consultants, OB's, pediatricians, midwives, nurses..but NO direction in how to regain core strength. The inner core NEEDS attention and ignoring it for months/years can make women more likely to deal with diastasis recti, stress incontinence, prolapse etc. To avoid physical therapy later, re-strengthening the core before returning to "typical workouts" is important. Typical gym exercises do not strengthen the stretched out core properly. Yes some women are fortunate and the weight falls off and the abs look good... but most do not get their core function back fully. Alignment may be off and the entire core can be off balance. The inner core muscles should be strengthened progressively and functionally. By doing this, moms can effectively stabilize the hips, improve ab, back, glute and pelvic strength, breathing patterns, posture and body alignment.
