#54 Pre and Postnatal Exercise: A Radically Different Approach with Jessie Mundell
Show Notes

This week, we’re talking to Jessie Mundell (she/her). Jessie has over 15 years experience in exercise coaching and personal training for people who are pregnant, newly postpartum, and parents. She is a registered Professional Kinesiologist and holds a Master's Degree in Kinesiology, with studies focused in prenatal and postnatal exercise.

Jessie is the creator of Core + Floor Restore, To Pregnancy and Beyond, the Prenatal and Postnatal Fitness Specialist Academy, and co-host of the To Birth and Beyond podcast where she coaches pregnant and postpartum people, moms, parents, and fitness and health professionals on strength training and fitness during and after pregnancy.

She currently works with hundreds of clients and coaches around the world, guiding them through exercise in their pregnancies, postpartum recoveries, C-section healing, and their return to more intense fitness training.

We had an amazing conversation about...

  • how Jessie's own experience with diet culture has such a profound impact in how she trains clients and other fitness coaches
  • the biggest areas of opportunities for fitness professionals when working with pre and post-natal clients
  • how diet culture, racism, anti-fatness and other systems of oppression impact the pre-natal, birth, and post-partum experience
  • Jessie's Pre-Natal and Post-Natal Fitness Specialist Academy and how it is radically different than all other pre/postnatal fitness courses out there
  • ...and so much more! If you're a fitness professional who works with pregnant or post-natal clients, if you are currently pregnant or a new parent, OR if you have an interest in diving deep into exploring ways to move and live in your body without all of the harmful diet culture narratives, you will not want to miss this episode!
