There is SO much pressure, both externally and internally, to return back to our pre-baby life and routine. When it comes to any strenuous exercise routine, rushing back to this can have uncomfortable and extreme consequences.
Today we’re talking with Dr. Jackie Kickish, who is both a doctor of Physical Therapy and a Pre & Postpartum Exercise Specialist. After navigating her own postpartum weight loss journey, she now helps other moms become fit and strong while maintaining a balanced, healthy, and joyful lifestyle.

When can I start working out again?
What types of exercise are safe and can help me heal long term?
What are the warning signs that something is off?
Then you need the information shared in this conversation. It will give you guidance on how to navigate postpartum exercise for yourself or for the clients you serve.
