Let’s talk: Mama Pooch Belly

Pooch days after 1st pregnancy (Dec 2013)

If you are a mom you will know EXACTLY what I am talking about. The dreaded mama pooch belly. It’s that stubborn area that doesn’t go away as easily as we want post baby. It seems to hang on forever and no amount of crunches or sit ups seems to make it budge. I have had […]
