“The misconception is that pregnancy causes food cravings, the truth is many women are repulsed by most foods”
Fit Mom. Educator. Myth Debunker. Prenatal and Postnatal Expert. Gymnast and Lifter. Online coach and influencer. Jessie is a downright fountain of knowledge. Mostly she is an awesome human
Jessie Mundell – is an amazing lady providing so much value, support, care and advice to ladies out there during their pre or postnatal phase of motherhood. With such a big case of misinformation out there, Jessie has stowed it upon herself to develop programs and offer advice which sets the record straight.
The reality of pregnancy and birth is that it can be a stressful time and causes profound changes on a woman’s body which sometimes cause months or years of discomfort if not given the right advice or treatment.
We were so pleased and grateful to get such a big chunk of Jessie’s time, especially on a Friday evening! She certainly is not one to shy away from hard work and makes the most of her ‘free time’ as a mom to run her business in the early and later hours of the day!
Jessie is a salt of the earth type of person who spent most of her early life in the beautiful surroundings of Ontario, Canada. From a young age she was a competitive gymnast and it’s an interesting materialisation when you look at how her life, motherhood and career has panned out with gymnastics being a major influence at the centre of it all.
In the Podcast we get into descriptive and technical detail specifically around how particular training can have a detrimental impact when women are trying to conceive. However the great news is that everything is reversible and it’s often much more simple than you may think.
We cover terminology and conditions such as abdominal separation, diastasis recti, incontinence, pelvic floor and linea alba among many others. She also debunks a lot of training myths and explains how and why a healthy weightlifting regime is just what mother’s need.
She has created and built up a significant and highly successful online training platform and support system for ladies prenatal, antenatal and postnatal. Her programs are not primarily focused on training, they deal with real life issues like body image, mental health, relationships, experience of pregnancy and motherhood
There are many fantastic mom’s in the wellness industry and we believe that Jessie is one of the best you will find
We hope you enjoy this conversation as much as we did.
Let’s find out what it means for Jessie Mundell, to be Ridiculously Human.
