It is not uncommon for new moms to be overwhelmed and frustrated with the way they look and feel. You’ve got a tiny being that needs you around the clock, yet many women are less than satisfied with the way their body looks after pregnancy. In fact, you may avoid looking in the mirror altogether and feel tired and run down on a daily basis.
Choose Balance Over Extreme
While you may be tempted to dive into extreme measures to regain your pre-pregnancy figure, you should be careful of what that means for your energy and health as a new mom. Drastically reducing calories or engaging in excessive exercise can zap the energy your body desperately needs to care for your baby. In fact, if you are breastfeeding, an extreme dieting plan can lower or eliminate your rich milk supply.
Don’t worry; being a new mom doesn’t mean you have to neglect yourself altogether. But there’s a balance – a healthy balance. At Modern Aesthetica, we are proud to offer a unique Mommy and Me Bounce Back Program. This program focuses on healthy weight loss without neglecting your responsibilities as a mom. Our program allows moms to take advantage of the following under the direction of a skilled physician:
Nutrition Counseling – eating looks different when you are a busy mom. We help you choose healthy snacks for your ‘on the go’ lifestyle as well as develop a customized caloric intake plan that ensures you lose weight in a healthy manner.
Physical Activity – moving your body improves many aspects of your physical and emotional well-being. We not only help you establish an exercise plan to balance your nutrition habits, but we also give you ways to exercise with your child!
Monthly Parent Sessions – ongoing support for your entire family is important. There will be good days and bad days, and our team is here to help you stay on track in your nutrition and exercise routine as new parents.
Pamper Yourself, It’s Okay!
Last but not least, don’t be too hard on yourself. You’ve formed a precious life and are doing the hard work of raising a child. While the weight loss can be discouraging at times, it is important to have a healthy perspective and seek ways to make you feel better about yourself.
At Modern Aesthetica, we are a one-stop shop for new moms. Not only do we offer proven medical weight loss programs, but we also provide some of the most advanced cosmetic treatments available. Whether you want to rejuvenate with a 24K Gold Facial or explore PRP therapy for sagging tissues or joint pain, we are here to help you. Taking time for yourself can be one of the best gifts you give your child!
