Moms are part of the miracle.

The blessing of becoming pregnant and being a mommy is one of a woman's most memorial moments in life. 9 months of preparations and dreams of what it will be like when the baby is born. Often you never hear on how fast your body image takes a surprising hit when you look in the mirror after you have giving birth to your precious little one and you realize your body has completely changed. Women become determine to do what ever it takes to get the body they loved to see when they faced the mirror.

Alot of the time we forget that it took our bodies 9 months to get to where it did to deliver that baby. Should it not be fair to say your body would need about the same time to get back to being itself.

The 5 rules to follow when you are in the first year after having your baby are:
  • Be patient and kind to yourself. Remember the miracle you accomplished.
  • Eat a healthy diet. You body needs nutrients to replenish itself of the hard work.
  • Exercise routinely. Make is not just a chore but a healthy habit
  • Be positive and remember you have a whole year to cut your body some slack.
  • Treat yourself to things that make you feel beautiful. Facials, pedicures, massages overall help you love your body and want to continue the journey to bring it to what it once was.

Another idea moms might want to try is to continue the routine of lotioning the tummy and thigh areas as done while pregnant. A good toning and firming lotion will help your skin regain the collagen and elasticity it needs to regain its firmness.

Moms Gift My personal favorite while pregnant was Nuby Natural Touch cream. Nuby’s Stretch Mark Cream helps prevent and reduce stretch marks with a special combination of Cocoa butter, Vitamin E, Collagen, and Elastin. It comes in three different formulas, Cocoa Butter,Brazil Nut, andVitamin E

I also used Mary Kay's Firming Timewise Body Firming lotion. TimeWise Body Toning Lotion contains a powerful mix of ingredients including botanical and antioxidants formulated to help moisturize and redefine body contours by toning.

With a baby comes showers of baby gifts. Sometimes moms need to remember themselves as well.
After all the one year journey was not only the baby's.
