Episode 026: Pregnancy and Post-Partum Nutrition and Fitness w/ Special Guest Liv Dykes


Liv Dykes is a personal trainer and precision nutrition coach who specializes in pregnancy and post-partum corrective exercise. She has been around the fitness industry for five years now and just came out with her new program, LivWell. Because of her creative niche and deep expertise, I wanted to bring her onto the show today.


In this episode, we dive deep into all things pregnancy and post-partum. Liv shares what her personal experience was like and describes many of the issues new moms deal with, including pelvic floor dysfunctions. She also teaches us some of the things she wishes she had known about post-partum nutrition, fitness, and mindset before she had a baby. Join us!
