6 tips to Help Boost Your After Birth Recovery: Kath Baquie from FitNest Mama

Having a baby takes a huge toll on the body and part of my role as a physio for women is to teach women what they can do to help their bodies recover in the best way possible.

The first 6 weeks after delivery are all about rest, recovery and restoring your body’s strength and in this episode, I share my top 6 tips to help boost your after birth recovery. Whether you have a vaginal or cesarean delivery, it’s so important to take the time to recover properly so that you can get back to doing the things you love with bubba by your side.

I talk about the rule of thumb with regards to lifting and the importance of rest, even if it’s just a 5-minute nap on the couch. I discuss pelvic floor exercises, monitoring how you’re feeling and developing a rehab plan to continue on after those first 6 weeks.
