  • Let me clear!
    She is saying that if you have a gap of more than 2 fingers after checking abdominal split…. you cannot do intense workout till you recover the gap!
    It depends on body to body!
    Hope new mums got their answer❤❤

  • Its still surprise me just how lots of people do not know about Custokebon Secrets (just google search it) despite the fact that a lot of people lost lots of weight using it. Thanks to my buddy who told me about this. I’ve lost a ton of fat.

  • This Video is very relatable. I’m 5’1 and went up to 185 right before having my baby so imagine. Still working toward my old self but it was difficult in the beginning having postpartum depression. Thank you for this video

  • I LOVE that you carried big. I’m HUGE and 30 weeks lol. I have gained 40 lbs already but it seems to be mostly belly. I do want to try binding this time hoping that it really helps with postrecovery. Binding safe for sections?(just in case lol) the other thing is I requested the prenatal plan go it but for what ever reason it is gone off my phone �� congrats on your little girl!!

  • ❄✨Congrats on your 1st girl! I too gave birth to a girl one short week ago. Your video (again) is helpful. I do belly bind but with my spanx and agree with your nutrition advice. Except I do indulge in some sugar like dark chocolate! Your figure is great! I got a little work to do but will lose the pounds with good diet and exercise after my doc visit! Merry Christmas!❄✨

  • Every time i watch your video I just keeping thinking your so awesome! I had my fourth c section 5 weeks ago. I will do the postpartum once I’m cleared to do abs:)

  • I’m 21 and just had my 2nd son 3 months ago. Not happy with how the way I look but am willing to try and work out. Not for satisfying my physical appearance but also mentally encouraging myself to feel good about myself

  • Im 29 years old and im expecting my first baby dec 2020. I always been 95 pounds. Im 3 months right now and so far gained 4 pounds. I wonder if im going to gain alot of weight…

  • Oh my god literally I finally find the same person as me, I used to weight before my pregnancy 122 pounds and I’m 4’11 it’s so true that when your a small person it’s not good to be big….. I would say now I weight 164 pounds and I’m 2 more weeks till I deliver my baby and it’s so frustrating for me because I feel like I gained sooo much weight. Before I would say a year and half I used to weight 149 and I worked hard till I dropped till 122 and now here comes the baby and I weight more then I did before. It did 100 percent change my body although I still have 2 more weeks I don’t know how much I’ll drop after. Although I’m so excited my body have changed in so many ways for example stretch marks, weight, scars and darked areas and I really hope I can get back to the way I was. ❤️

  • Bridget I’m a pelvic health physical therapist and I love your videos! You are very educated and also a very gifted educator. You inspire me! I wish I had known about Doulas when I had my babies. Thank you for all that you do and keep doing it, girl!

  • Hi! I know this video is old but the link to the belly binder on Amazon no longer works:( can you repost the link if the binding is still available? Thank you!

  • one quick question, on a normal week, how many hours do you workout (more or less) it can’t be easy with 3 kids you’re a super mom!

  • I’m 4’11 and I’m my last trimester… and worried about how I will lose my baby weight post partum. So happy I came across your video!!! I never see videos with tiny girls like us… so thank you for sharing your story! You look amazing! And it’s very reassuring and motivating for us nervous first time moms!

  • Just curious when you were talking about your weight, how tall are you? I definitely weighed more at the start of this pregnancy compared to my first 2 due to increased muscle mass from working out!

  • The answer to a healthier weight loss is to curtail carbs out of your diet and consume more water on empty stomach, a hell of stuff there to promote weight loss but for me the finest help I got from is an herbal formula “mummy magic weight loss tea” by secretsoftea, being herbal this formula is the safest and strongest thing to get the fat melted.

  • You look great for 4 days postpartum. I remember crying for ny back pain on day 3. I am 19 days postpartum and wonder when can I start your workouts? Also does the age matter? Is the workout same for 25 years old and 40 years old?

  • I’m 5 months pregnant and I’m not even worried about pain I’m just worried about my appearance after I give birth.
    But thanks for the vid

  • Thank you for saying there is no point binding after 40 days, there is a lot of conflicting info on this on the internet and I was not sure when to stop

  • Congratulations Ashley!! I am having a girl too! So happy for you:) You look amazing! Really looking forward to trying your 12 week post pregnancy plan. Thanks for the tips and great content!

  • You’re adorable. I am currently pregnant almost 34 weeks with my second. I definitely went through a lot of shame and self hate after my first. I am in a much calmer place now and looking forward to working my way back thanks for the advice!!

  • mam i gave birth 7dec and aftr 2 days baby died bt i want to losse my belly fat nd i also want baby plan again.Tell me when i cant do exercise nd which time i can baby plan again

  • Congrats! You look great! I’m so happy you got your girl. ❤️ My third was a boy; I was hoping for a girl too! Oh well, I’m just a boy mom I guess. ����‍♀️ I’m currently doing your 12 week postpartum program! I love it! ❤️

  • Hey just wanted to say that before coming to your page i was having a melt down about me being fat and giggly, and just hating my body due to my baby weight. I had my baby on July 21st, 2020, and you actually made me feel better because i kept telling myself, it’s my fault also because I’m over here always crying and depressed about my body but yet i don’t do anything. Because i hate working out too they gym isn’t for me. I’m lazy. And like you said, anything that makes me feel like it’s exercise i just want to stop what I’m doing and move on!! But you’re right i Can find hobbies that i like, bike riding I’ve been wanting to do, i Can also do swimming and maybe hiking too… so thank you i feel a little better because i didn’t think of those things!! Is that how you got your body like that? By doing those things? Or did you exercise a LITTLE BIT?

  • Hey Lola! Thank you so much for the video. I like the idea of going swimming at the gym for exercise. Right now I’m struggling with what I will do with my baby while at the gym. I called around to all my local gyms and none of them offer child care. I can go when my husband gets home from work, so that he can watch the baby. I just wish I could go during the day so that I could spend the evening as a family. What do you do with your baby while you exercise?

  • Yes, I too am guilty of jumping through diet plan to others as well, I think that I need to have tried every fat loss program that was available, however in the end not one of them made it easier for me to lose and maintain the weight off. I ended up trying for the very last time using the Custokebon Secrets simply because my cooworker who told me great things about it and so far to date I’ve successfully lost 15 lbs in 3 weeks!

Your tips are awesome and I’m hoping I have the strength to get back in shape

  • I love this I never really comment on a video but this spoke to me a lot and made me feel a bit more confident I had my baby almost a year ago and my body is nowhere near how it was and it’s made me so insecure so much to where I don’t even want my husband to see me and I was thinking to just give up and just live with hating the way I look and to get used to being uncomfortable I even started throwing my old clothes away cause I can’t fit them but I think ima keep on trying…. this is the kind of video I’ve been searching for God Bless����✨

But I now have the stubborn lower belly pooch, because I had a csection, and it’s so hard to get rid of! I have two kids now, but my second pregnancy didn’t change much of how my body looked due to my first pregnancy, if that makes sense? I just want my body back, and to be able to fit into my favorite size 7 jeans, again

I was so careless about my weight I could tell it was gonna get bad, but I had a friend that told me to “get my ass up and go workout (I’m also a D1 college athlete) and I had to get ready for next season, so it was glo’up time, so I did. Got me a trainer, and worked my ass off. The only thing I’m really insecure about is my post baby pooch, it’s been 3 years now and I still have it a little bit, any advice on how to get rid of it?
