The Mommy Success Plan BONUS PACK
How to Ask For Help
Years ago, it was automatic, the family and community knew what a new mom needed most and showed up to support her. Often times we are offered the help and don’t take it. Other times we are overwhelmed but feel like a failure if we reach out. You can’t expect the people in your life to recognize when you are struggling, you must have a strategy for reaching out and asking for help that you are comfortable with. In this bonus, we will help you create your strategy and show you how to stick to it!
You have spent the past week with us figuring out the best ways in which you will feel supported, you’ve committed to not only accepting help, but planning for it. In the Communication 101 bonus, we are going to show you how to put your plan into action and how to set up a schedule and reminders for you and your support team so that when baby arrives, all you have to do is take care of your peanut while everyone else takes care of you.
Superfoods for Recovery
A big part of your postnatal recovery is replenishing your body with essential micro and macronutrients that were lost throughout your pregnancy. Replenishment can be gained through a combination of supplementation and proper nutrition. We have complied a list of superfoods for our new moms with tips, ideas and recipes on how to easily incorporate them into your daily routines.
We don’t know it all, but we do know a lot of smart and talented pros. Oh, they also happen to be so generous that they are going to spend time with us, filling in the blanks. From yoga for recovery, to food prep, to keeping yourself pulled together and organized – we’ve got you covered. By the end of the week, you’ll love them as much as we do!

Bring Back The Social Childbirth
The Mommy Success Plan has been designed to take us back in time, when women helped women and when the need for a new mom to recover was recognized by her entire community. It was called the lying in period and it lasted a minimum of 40 days. There was no rushing to get back to pre-baby status of working, socializing, keeping the house and more.
Bond with your baby. Heal yourself. Nourish yourself. Invite and welcome the kindness of others.
Meet Rebecca & Vanessa
We’re moms and we wish we had a resource like The Mommy Success Plan when we had our babies.
We did everything backwards. We didn’t accept or ask for help. We tried to do it all. Having both worked in health and fitness for more than 20 years combined, we figured that we could and would just bounce back. That’s not what happened… at all.
It took us more than two years postpartum to figure out that what were experiencing was not a right of passage into motherhood. We both experienced postpartum mood disorders and we both wondered why no one ever ‘warned’ us about how hard this mom gig really was.
So we set out to change things for ourselves and in the midst of our own self-development, we realized that we were not alone. Other moms were feeling the same way we were. And so began our obsession with postnatal care and recovery. Struggling is not a right of passage and things can be better.
It all starts with proper planning for your postnatal recovery; learning what your body needs physically, mentally and emotionally to recover, developing a strategy and then following through. We developed The Mommy Success Plan to give expectant moms and their families a step-by-step guide in creating a healthy recovery for all; we look forward to setting you up for postnatal success!

Decrease Your Risk of Experiencing a Postpartum Mood Disorder
Many of the factors that can often mimic or lead to a postpartum disorder are things within our control. Taking some pressure off of yourself in those first few weeks by delegating tasks, as well as making sure that you are nourishing your body with nutrient-rich foods are just a few of the things that will help you avoid experiencing a mood disorder such as depression or anxiety.
Have More Time to Bond With Your Baby
You spent over 9 months growing and nurturing your baby, think of how amazing it will be have this one-on-one time to get to know each other! With the stress of managing your entire household gone, the pressure to get back on your feet gone and your to-do list taken care of, you’ll be able to focus on you and your baby.
Put Less Pressure on Yourself
As mentioned above, you just spent the better part of a year growing a tiny human and that is no small feat! It only makes sense to take the time to ease into your new role. Wether you are a new mom or you are having your second, third or fourth baby, everything changes with the addition of a new baby. Taking the pressure off of yourself to “get back on your feet” or to “do it all” right away will pay dividends in the long run. If you don’t take the time to recover now, chances are you will be playing catch up for years to come.
Have Focused Time to Nourish Your Body
Let’s face it, when you have a baby everything tends to end up on the back burner, including your dinner. Eating all of a sudden becomes an on-the-go thing and there is no way that a new mom is fully replenishing the nutrients she lost during pregnancy. Replenishment is a major missing link in postpartum recovery and we get it, there just isn’t time or brain power to make sure you are getting in the essentials, let alone the extras a new mom may need. Prepping before baby comes and having a support team who are making sure you’re fridge and freezer are stocked can be one of the most important elements of your recovery.
Set Yourself Up For Success Beyond 40 Days
How you treat your body and yourself in these first 40 days postpartum will determine how your body will treat you beyond this recovery period. The term post-natal depletion refers to the state your body ends up in weeks, months and even years after childbirth when you haven’t taken the time to rest and replenish. When you take the time to recover properly and reset your body with nourishment and self-care, the likelihood of staying on that path is much higher.
