Four Post Partum Essentials Every New Mom Needs

Fitness expert Lara Marq returns in her first post-baby blog with her favourite post partum products

Congratulations! You did it. Those long 40 (more or less) weeks that you waited to meet your baby has finally come. The initial couple days after meeting your precious child are a whirlwind of overwhelming happiness. Sure, you haven’t slept in over 72 hours but you are so in love that the exhaustion hasn’t even really hit you yet. Absolute bliss…

Unfortunately, within a couple days the wave of exhaustion suddenly makes its appearance and between your baby’s demanding feeding schedule, pumping to increase supply, endless sterilizing, diaper changing, rocking and “ssshing” on top of your regular daily household responsibilities there is little to no time to think about your own personal care and recovery.

I was shocked how uninformed and little prepared I was for my own post partum recovery. On my limited time, I did as much research as possible and found and used these FOUR essential post partum products that made my recovery and return to my fit life as easy as possible.

MomBod Fit Splint

Pregnancy and childbirth can really change a woman’s body. I began using the tummy trainer by MOMBOD Fit Splint in order to re-condition the core connective tissues and rehabilitate my 1cm diastasis recti. I am super pleased with how quickly my tummy flattened after childbirth.

Now For Mothers – Healing Mix

Breastfeeding every 2.5 hours, day and night as well as managing my exhaustion mixed with hormonal imbalances really took a toll on me. Luckily Now for Mothers sent me their Post Partum Super Food Healing mix which was specifically made for a mother just like me. This delicious product is a Natural and Organic recovery formula that conveniently and safely provides mothers with a solution to the exhaustion they feel after pregnancy. I simply sprinkled a scoop over my morning oatmeal and felt my energy increase instantly.

Healthy Meal Delivery Service

Looking after a baby is a full time job; it often leaves little time for much else. So who is looking after mom’s appetite? Ensuring that you’re well fed with nutritious meals is just as if not more important now that the baby has arrived. Hiring a meal delivery service to provide delicious and healthy meals throughout the week is what kept me going all day long. One Life Meals provided a variety of meals that are easy to reheat and ready to eat. Unfortunately, the only meals I couldn’t enjoy where the breakfasts as they contained Whey Protein.

Muscle Wizard Self Massager

No amount of rows or back fly’s can prepare you for the ache your upper back and neck will experience after your baby arrives. Do yourself (and hubby’s hands) a favour and have your own personal massage therapist at your fingertips with the Muscle Wizard. This unique product gave me instant muscle pain and tension relief where I needed it the most.
