Heart Food Podcast | 031 | Beverly Simpson – body awareness, pre & postpartum movement, body image, & self-care

In this episode, I’m joined by my friend Beverley Simpson, a coach helping mamas pre & post birth build confidence through strength & fat loss without body hate. I knew from the moment I heard Beverley speak at Elevate ’18 that I had to have her on the show. I had never heard a mom speak so frankly about their birth & mothering experience.

I wanted Beverley to shed some light & awareness for mamas, soon-to-be-mamas, and women who hope to have kids one day on what happens to our bodies when have children and how we can proceed with confidence, awareness, and strength.

We cover:

– Beverley’s story
– What to expect through pregnancy & birth 
– Being flexible about your birth plan
– Pre & postpartum fitness (exercises to avoid & focus on)
– Breastfeeding
– Building confidence after birth
– Birth & postpartum resources
– Avoiding the comparison trap
– Self-care for mamas
