2. What I Wish I Knew About Exercise in Pregnancy and Postpartum, with Mom of 3 Abby Green

September 25, 2023 - Dr. Alexis Reid

We are lucky enough to have our first interview with podcast veteran Abby Green. She is the mom of three littles, co-hosts two podcasts - HERself and Pursuing HER Purpose. Abby has been through many changes and challenges in her motherhood journey and today she is sharing with us what she wishes she would’ve known in her first pregnancy when it came to exercise.

When it comes to choosing the best workouts during pregnancy or postpartum, we can all make mistakes. Abby experienced prolapse after her first birth and shares the guide that she followed during her second and third pregnancies that made all the difference in her recovery. She is someone who has always identified as an athlete and she had to reframe her mindset around what this meant after she became a mom. 

Abby shares what type of exercise worked for her during her early postpartum days when intense workouts weren’t an option. She explains how she got back into running and shares her top recommendation if you are looking to get back into that sport as well. We finish up the interview with Abby sharing her unpopular opinion about exercise in pregnancy and postpartum. You’re not going to want to miss it!
