Here at FitFluential, we’re a diverse community and we lean on each other for support, encouragement and information. As a new or expectant mom, sometimes just reading about someone else’s experiences can be a great source of support, as you navigate this new season of your life with your little one.
This year we’re celebrating Mother’s Day with a roundup of posts from FitFluential Ambassadors on all things Mom-related. We’ve covered all the topics that matter most to new and expectant moms: breastfeeding, fitness while pregnant, life with a newborn, getting pregnant, postpartum depression, must have items for the nursery (and beyond!) and more.
To further celebrate Moms, FitFuential Ambassador Amanda Tress of Fit Pregnancy and Parenting is giving away a copy of her Body After Baby Boot Camp Workout DVD. So many new moms have experienced great results working out with Amanda’s boot camp program, and we think you will, too!
Enter by following the instructions in the Rafflecopter widget below. This sweepstakes will end at 11:59 PST on May 13th, 2014.
