What? You Don’t Have a MOMMY PLAN for Your Recovery?!

From Pregnancy BACK to FABULOUS, A Mommy Plan, that is just right…

Mamas worked so hard to get that pregnancy GLOW, it would be a shame to lose it! Unique individual coaching services and packages for Unique Mamas. Valerie loves to coach mamas back to their previous selves, and BETTER, after pregnancy and child birth.

The clock begins ticking sooner than you think! Your body begins the healing process 1 – 2 hours after the placenta is birthed. Take advantage of the natural healing window of opportunity and accelerate it to your benefit! Restore your body sooner than you ever expected.

My approach

My unique, recovery coaching is a sophisticated blend of tradition and science bringing defined, after birth recuperation practices to you.

D-I-Y Culture

The culture we live in is based on D-I-Y and self-help principles. Women aren’t allowed to have much “down-time” regularly, let alone, after child birth and therefore we must take our recovery into our own hands and plan it out to ensure we are back on our feet and functioning as soon as possible. Beginning your recovery BEFORE your 6-week medical checkup is the key, as it lays the foundation for your recovery over the next few months.

Doctor’s Orders

Mamas are instructed by their doctor not to engage in any exercise other than light walking for six weeks after giving birth. This is correct. However during the initial ‘down-time” during the first few weeks, a mama’s body is going through an intense, internal exercise as her body transitions back to a non-pregnant state. Take advantage of this transition that you normally don’t have any control over. Therefore there IS a lot that a Mama CAN do to put herself on the right track to a healthy, strong, and balanced recovery in the shortest time possible.

Well Managed Care

It is a common belief that taking care of a mother is an essential part of the post-birth process and that well-managed postnatal care and will in no doubt, greatly benefit both her and her newborn. Mothers who have recently delivered have special needs to rehabilitate both their bodies and mind.

My recovery guidelines are based on the most effective, ancient traditional after birth practices, and care, that is still followed in the traditional cultures enhanced by science in the modern world we live in. It is well known that women in the Far East are well taken care of after child birth resulting in a better physical, and more balanced recovery. Make the most of the first weeks of downtime after childbirth.

Maternity Recovery Period

Where do we start? We start by looking at: The amount of time you have for maternity leave.
OR
The weeks you are planning on making recovery part of your maternity period Working backwards starting with the day you give birth. We make those days count by developing a daily plan towards actively healing, and restoring, your body while the transition processes are going on.

Pre and Postnatal Coaching

“The best gift a new Mom can give her baby is a strong recovery.”
Valerie Lynn

The style of coaching I provide is appropriate for both, new and seasoned Moms. When it comes to my work I do nothing halfway, which is reflected in the 12-year development my postnatal recovery program. What do I offer that no other postnatal coach offers?  I offer you the best of the best of postnatal programs that I have researched in my 20-years of living overseas. I provide the “why and how”, based-on science and evidence-based proof,  behind the questions of whether postnatal care is really needed? I can tell you first hand, that it is needed. Western countries hold the view that transition back to a non-pregnant state will happen naturally so the process does not need monitoring.  It does happen naturally, to a certain degree, but I see weak, prolonged recoveries taking place that directly relates to a Mother’s breastmilk production, hormonal re-balancing, shedding of the retained water, fat, and flatulence and all too often impacts her quality time with her baby. A weak physical recovery has vast and long-lasting effects.

Since 2000, I have lived, recovered from postpartum anxiety and OCD, worked, and conducted in-depth research via the Malaysian Ministry of Health, Malaysia, a country in Southeast Asia. Malaysia is the global benchmark in the area of postnatal recovery with the lowest recorded statistic of postpartum mood disorders at just 3%. This is not a coincidence; it is due to their deep postnatal heritage that is a blend of the largest communities that make up Malaysia – Chinese, Indian Ayurvedic, and Malay. Two of the best known postnatal practices the – Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic – and one of the most holistic the Malay, combined embody the Malaysian postnatal protocol.

This postnatal program is a planned recovery from Day 1, the day a mother gives birth to six weeks. Recovery from pregnancy and childbirth is broken down week by week, centered on the internal healing that is taking place. Understanding this makes it much easier to plan your recovery.

The healing process is supported by specific postnatal guidelines encompassing:

  • Diet Do’s and Don’ts.
  • Personal care – breast, abdomen, womb, perineum.
  • Hormonal re-balancing.
  • Activity precautions.
  • Gentle exercises.
  • Emotional health check-in.
