Let's talk about fan-girl moments for a minute. In this episode I chat with Jessie Mundell. Jessie is the reason that I decided to steer Polkadotsi towards focusing on post-partum fitness, and really focus on helping women heal, build, and fall radically in love with their bodies.
So you can only begin to imagine how excited I was to record this episode!
For those of you playing along at home,
Jessie is the creator of the Postnatal Fitness Specialist Academy, the Core + Floor Restore series, and the To Pregnancy & Beyond program.
She's focused on effective exercise during pregnancy, rehab of the core and pelvic floor for moms, postpartum and C-section recovery, teaching women how to eat and exercise effortlessly, and having women feel incredible in their bodies.
We chatted about how she has moved from encouraging women to focus on fat loss, through her mindset shift to teaching them to build strong, amazing bodies.
We also also chatted about her INCREDIBLE upcoming academy for trainers, and anyone else who works with mums and pregnant women; (doulas, midwives, group fitness instructors, I'm looking at you!) The Postnatal Fitness Specialist Academy. This is a program that touches on SO many facets that are important for post partum women, including racism, body image, pelvic health, nutrition and so much more.
Jessie teaches women the questions we should be asking of our trainers so as not to get hurt in our fitness pursuits, and encourages women to steer the conversations about pelvic floors, diastasis recti, and prolapse with their trainers.
I was super excited to have Jessie on the show, because she is changing our industry for the better.
