Melissa Davis: Recovering your body after pregnancy
Show Notes

Melissa Davis is a certified Wellness Coach and Personal Trainer.  A mom of 2 boys, she has been in the wellness industry for 18 years and truly enjoys helping people reach their wellness goals.

In this interview, Melissa and I discuss how  hard it can be to recover after having a baby. She shares her personal story of having postpartum depression, health struggles, and an unexpected surgery after her second son was born and how difficult it was to get back into fitness, even though she is a personal trainer.

Wherever you are in your fitness life, out conversation is candid, hopeful and guilt-free.

Quotable Quotes:
‘Acknowledge the fact that this is going to be a process. It took 9 months to get the baby here. It’s going to take at least 9 months to put yourself back together. And that’s going to be a whole new you. That’s not going to be who you were 9 months ago—that’s a totally different person.”
 
 “Every postpartum is going to have its own story, just like every birth is going to have its own story.”
