You’re probably here because you feel like you have an entirely different body after having a baby.
And you’d love to feel like yourself again.
Have the strength to keep up with motherhood and the energy to survive the day.
And get back into the fitness-y things you loved to do pre-baby (or even just chase after your kiddo without worrying if your body can handle it).
You knew your body would change, you just weren’t expecting it to feel so weak and foreign to you.
Hey, I’m Jenna Dalton. Certified Postpartum Athleticism Coach and Mom of Two.
After I had my first baby I wasn’t prepared for the postpartum experience I had.
I thought I would bounce back and be in the gym – doing my usual workouts – by 6 weeks postpartum.
But instead of bouncing back, a few weeks after having my daughter I couldn’t even walk up a tiny flight of stairs without my pelvis wincing in pain.
Or do squats, jump or even go for a long walk without feeling a weird pressure in my pelvis (not to mention the fear that I might pee myself).
Or look in the mirror without sucking back tears – whose body was that? It sure didn’t feel like mine.
This wasn’t how it was supposed to go.
I’d been lifting weights for years, done yoga, bootcamp classes, barre, CrossFit, Pilates… I loved fitness. I loved being able to get a good workout in. It was a huge part of my identity. It was my stress-reliever and mood-booster.
The thought that I wasn’t able to do the things I loved without worrying if my body could handle it overwhelmed me with grief.
I so badly wanted to feel like myself again.
To be able to do the things I loved to do again.
In prenatal class and postnatal appointments we’re taught how to take care of our babies.
But very few women learn how to properly take care of their own bodies – especially during the postpartum period.
After deciding that I must have missed something, I did a ton of research, gained four postpartum fitness certifications, and have now worked with dozens of clients who were living with the same frustrations that I had – not feeling like themselves and not knowing how to fix it.
There’s a huge gap in the postpartum fitness industry.
There’s a lot of “get your body back after baby” stuff. But postpartum fitness goes so far beyond that and most programs don’t actually have a mom’s unique postpartum needs in mind.
You can’t just do a bunch of “mom safe” core exercises for a few weeks and then dive back into your pre-baby workouts.
There’s way more to the picture than that. And I’d love to show you the whole story.
Let me be clear, I want you to feel confident and good in your body but I’m not a “get your pre-baby body back” trainer.
Because flat abs and looking like you never had a baby shouldn’t come at the expense of your physical or emotional well-being.
You deserve more.
Better strategies. Research-backed programs. Supportive guidance that doesn’t make you feel like a loser if you miss a workout (#momlife is crazy busy and you put enough pressure on yourself, you don’t need my help).
Your needs didn’t stop when you became a mom. And I’d love to help you make your own happiness a priority.
More About Me
I’m Mom to my 3-year-old, Avery and soon-to-be-one-year-old, Nora. I spent almost 10 months growing each of them and they look pretty much exactly like my husband Adam. I’m obviously totally okay with that. 😉
I’m a complete nerd for all things psychology – mindset, goals, habits, motivation, willpower – and actually have my Honours Degree in Psychology.
I will never stop collecting postpartum fitness certifications (I currently have four). You can never be too in-the-know.
I love that feeling you get after a really good workout where your muscles are burning and you’re sweaty and a little out of breath and you’re thinking “Yeah. That was a good one!”
I believe that focusing on your health and putting yourself first doesn’t mean you’re a bad mom. You deserve to feel awesome. Not just so you can be a better mom, wife, partner, friend… for you.
I’m known as that optimistic cheerleader who will use a proven strategy or tip she read about in a book to lovingly nudge you to keep going.
And I do all this research because I know you need more than a workout program. I can give you all the cutting-edge postpartum exercises in the world, but if you don’t have the right motivational foundation, habits, or mindset, you’re gonna get stuck and you probably won’t keep going.
But don’t worry. I’m not the type of person to abandon you. You’ve got this. I’ve got you.
