Congrats mama - you made it!
Now that you've got that little bubba out into the world, it's time to get your own body healed up properly, and back to even better than pre-pregnancy.

That's why we created this convenient, 3 page guide as to what movements to avoid post-birth, and the ones you should do instead.
