Dr. Lenny's Essential, but FUN, Reading List for New-Baby Mamas
A Few of Dr. Lenny's Favorite Things
As a New-Born Mama, you are still experiencing a myriad of hormonal, physical, and emotional shifts. Social Media depicts images of ladies who went from belly to baby to flat stomach. The real story of the mummy belly-AKA stretch marks, saggy skin, and seperated adbominal muscles-is keep secret as something to be ashamed of.
Abdominal comprssion was, and still is, my favorite postpardum recovery tool. My goal was not to ‘snap-back,’ but to develop a new-found body image confidence of myself as a Mama. I wore a maternity back support throughout pregnancy and a belly wrap after my emergency C-section.
There are many phsycial and health benefits of abdominal compression:
- Helps your uterus shrink back down to size
- Narrow the gap between your abdominal muscles, diastasis recti
- Provides great back support
This is the tool, many women don’t know about, but needs to be in your hospital bag. I used my belly wrap the next day after my C-section, approved by my doctor, and watched my improvements over the timeframe of months. But that extra squeeze was what I needed to help decrease my diastasis recti and support my back.
The secret answer for Sexy Legs, Butt, Face, and Tummy skin in 90 days is to reorganize and smooth your FASCIA!
- Fascia is the connective tissue that encloses every organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fiber, and muscle, plus it keeps everything neatly in place.
When the fascia is damaged, let’s say from pregnancy, you notice that your skin’s health deteriorates (i.e. sagginess or mommy tummy and unevenness or cellulite).
5 Minutes daily for 90 days is all that is needed to see improvement in your skin’s appearance using these scientifically-backed tools and techniques, plus a healthy diet and lifestyle!
The process of producing and maintaining liquid-gold for your infant is regulated by physical (nipple stimilation) and hormonal (prolactin and oxytocin) cues. Many times women experience insufficient production of liquid-gold, especially as the baby grows and demands more milk. There are TWO important ways to support your milk production:
- Heat: this helps to open and unclog your milk ducts plus stimulate let down (initial phase of feeding)!
- Massage: starting with the outter portions of the breast and working your way to the nipple, you can encourage more milk production
As a 24 hours 7days per week free-vending machine, you are expected to produce liquid-gold upon demand. This can be difficult and frustrating at times.
