Body Positivity and Fitness After Pregnancy
 
Hello everyone! Thought I'd ask for some advice about this here, and maybe I'd also find some people with the same problem so we can all share our stories. I gave birth 5 months ago to a beautiful baby girl. She is truly lovely, and my partner and I are very happy. But occasionally, I find myself struggling a little about body positivity. I don't feel completely hopeless because I know I have my partner and my parents to support me, but there are days when I just really feel emotional about it. I was wondering how some of you coped with that or helped someone cope with these issues? Thank you!

Enjoy that beautiful baby! Thank God for strollers - I wish I had used them more when my kids were babies. You may not see a dramatic transformation of your body just from taking your daughter out in the stroller, but you probably will feel better and more energized. Good luck!

Didn't think of that, that's really great advice. Did some research and found this on a parenting blog, then we bought a stroller a little after I gave birth. Some people say not to use strollers until the baby is 6mos but I guess we're just excited. :D I'll make sure to go out on more walks and invite my partner along as well, it'd be good bonding time. Thank you so much!

Rediscover your passion and purpose for life and build a body that matches that. You want to be a role model for your child and have the energy to play with them.

STRIVE TO BE A SUPER MOM :)

This is an extremely difficult period to keep your emotions in control. I can strongly advise to consult the psychotherapist if you feel you're losing control. There's nothing wrong about it and even one visit can make your life easier

Don't worry about it. Your partner understands and supports you. I know it myself. I had a similar situation with my spouse. She was worried sick about it and couldn't deal with it. So we went together to see a psychologist who helped us a lot. I didn't want to leave her alone. So we went together. It's just something to get over.
