One of the Mommy Ready Membership benefits is having a personal coach.  Someone to listen, guide and direct you through the program to suit your specific needs and concerns. Someone who will help you reach your goals!  And, lets be honest, someone who will push you to do things out of your comfort zone.

So how do you work with a coach while doing an online exercise program?  How can you get the most from your coach to maximize the benefit of your Mommy Ready Experience?

Let me start by introducing myself.  I am Amanda Baker, PTA (physical therapist assistant), CSS (core system specialist) and the Program Director for Mommy Ready.  I have...

One of Life's Greatest Miracles is the creation of a new Life.  

 We all know there are many biological and physiological happenings during pregnancy.  But I want to focus on the musculoskeletal happenings during pregnancy.

As the baby forms in the uterus, the abdominal muscles are required to expand and stretch.  The baby continues to grow and these muscles also need to make more room for the organs that are being crowded out.

The lungs get pushed upward, intestines are off to the side and that poor bladder!!!!  

Then throw in the stress to the abdominal muscles during actual labor.  They don't call it "labor" because its easy!  OR say you are required to have a c-section.  Well, then your core system is compromised in yet another dir...

I am thrilled to announce my new role as Program Director for the MommyReady Program.  I look forward to connecting with each of our current subscribers as well as reaching out to make new connections as awareness for postpartum care grows.

When Mommy Ready founder, Heather Christensen, first told me about her journey creating this program, it felt like serendipity. She had combined some of my favorite subjects both personally (as a Mom) and professionally (as an Occupational Therapist and Certified Hand Therapist) into one great program that encourages women to become strong for life and health. Intellectually, I understood that return to higher level heavy, repetitive, coordinated, and dynamic activities (mommy work) after birthing a baby requires strengthening the core first, but applying that to myself is a journey that has led me to seek help from the Mommy Ready Program.  

As a first time mom, I had a fussy baby and I struggled with mom guilt for ever puttin...

A man suffering from years of body pain and poor health sought wisdom from the sage near his home to learn the cure for his ailments.  

The wise sage taught him of a mountain in a far-away land with a fountain of water that had healing powers.  Anyone who drank from this fountain, was made whole.  The sage, knowing the man was poor both in health and in riches, cautioned him that the trek to the mountain was perilous - it would take planning and preparation, he would need to learn mountaineering and hire a guide - the cost to reach the fountain and return home was more than the man would make in a year. 

The man left the sage discouraged.  That evening his pain had worsened and he was unable to sleep.  He determined th...
