Did you know that you are most prone to injury in your 1st year postpartum?

Estrogen plays a key role in maintaining and building strong muscle, tendon, ligament, and bone health.

If you are postpartum and breastfeeding, your prolactin levels are high. Prolactin is responsible for producing milk!

So, when prolactin levels are high, estrogen levels are low.

When returning back to exercise postpartum, it is important to be gradual. You want to slowly build up your muscles and bones, without overdoing it. You want guided exercises, that involve a combination of strength training and cardiovascular exercise.

Your first year postpartum should NOT be the year for personal bests.
