For many of us active mamas, we have more or less been “active” for most of our lives. Or maybe it is more inclusive to say that, in my case, I didn’t get pregnant and decide to train for my first marathon at 16 weeks pregnant. While exercise is certainly motivation for a healthy state of mind and healthy body postpartum, I have been active for the better part of my life. Being active during pregnancy was encouraged by both my obstetrician and midwife, and was integral to my happiness over a combined 80 weeks of pregnancy.
Yea, I didn’t know what regenerative agriculture or permaculture was either, but I’ll be finding out tomorrow. On June 7th, I’ll be volunteering at Wolfe’s Neck Farm in Freeport, Maine as part of the 1% for the Planet, Days of Action.
