Rebuilding Strength After Giving Birth
Despite her active lifestyle, it was not easy for the fitness-addict mom to return to her regular exercise routine. After the delivery, she struggled to move without help.
However, she never lost the motivation to return to her usual exercise regimen. She also aimed to push her body to greater limits. To achieve this, the active mom started with breathing exercises and pelvic floor workouts to prepare for the gym.
After about two weeks, the fitness addict mom resumed her usual routine. She also added more exercises that focus on building her strength.
According to Yanyah Milutinović, “My focus was on my healing and on my physical performance and not so much on the aesthetics in postpartum.”
In just under four months, Ms Milutinović managed to safely regain her strength after labour. Thanks to her strict regimen, she surpassed her usual weightlifting limit.
She was already squatting more than 100 kg five weeks after her birth delivery to her youngest child. Six months after giving birth, this active mom squats with nearly 200 kg.

Her Fitness Advice to New Moms
As a proud mom of two, Yanyah Milutinović went through two pregnancy cycles. While working as an influencer, she documented the fitness journeys she accomplished while pregnant.
Concerning this, Ms Milutinović wanted to share some essential fitness advice that will be helpful to new moms. She came up with these suggestions after receiving flak from fellow parents for weightlifting while pregnant. According to her, working on your pelvic floor throughout pregnancy helps with incontinence.
She insists, “I have never leaked, not even a little bit, ever,” she said.
Meanwhile, Yanyah Milutinović also responded to concerns about her rigorous pregnancy exercises. Before pregnancy, she maintains her pelvic floor strength and health. She also listens to her body before pushing for her lifting goals.
“I have been able to heal myself from two pregnancies without any complications,” stated Yanyah Milutinović.

In addition, Yanyah Milutinović also highlights the importance of diet. According to her, moms should not restrict themselves from any foods. Instead, they must focus on eating protein-rich meals to fuel the body for heavy lifting.
“There is no ‘right vs wrong’ time to eat,” she said.
Furthermore, she discourages fellow moms from aiming to lose weight while pregnant.
“The more you obsess about something and restrict yourself, the more likely it will all fail and not be sustainable for the long run,” said Yanyah Milutinović.
Moms should never push or rush themselves to lose weight right after pregnancy.
She then added: “We need to be able to enjoy birthdays, holidays and business dinners too.”
