Just a couple months after the birth of her second son, our founder and CEO, Teresa, appeared in a segment on Good Morning America. In this guest blog, she talks about the challenges of dealing with post-baby weight in the media spotlight. Here's an excerpt:
Twelve weeks after giving birth to my second son, I heard from ABC that Good Morning America wanted to do a story on my company, Mountain Mama, and on rock climbing while pregnant. With three days’ notice I had to coordinate a team of climbers, pick climbing routes, and line up a harness to fit my postpartum body (thanks, Metolius!), not to mention arrange wardrobe, hair and makeup. Yet with all I had to do, what I fixated on was being on TV as a spokesperson for prenatal fitness while I still had 30 pounds left to lose.
