My manifesto to my fellow mamas:
You deserve to live your best life.
You deserve to prioritize your health. Not only does it NOT make you a bad mother, but it makes you a BETTER mother, partner, friend, human, and whatever other hat you wear.
You are your best advocate.
Peeing your pants is not normal- not even a little. I’ll help you throw away those panty liners.
You should be able to wake up in the morning feeling refreshed- not like you ran a marathon in your sleep.
Gas is normal- being embarrassed by stinking up every yoga class is not.
Sex is fun. It should not be painful or unsatisfying because of hormones or pelvic floor issues.
Body parts aren’t “bad.” That back, hip, or knee has more potential than you think to feel good every day.
It’s not normal to get to work and not remember driving there. You CAN get rid of “mom brain.”
Food and exercise are healing, and tons of research backs that up.
You deserve to LOVE yourself completely- body, mind, and soul.
