MUTU Mama and MUTU Grand-Mama! A Mother and Daughter’s Journey
There’s often a misconception that postpartum recovery is for brand new mamas with babies under 2. You see, the thing is, the postpartum period never really ends once you’ve had kids. There’s no expiry date on when you can begin your recovery after having babies. So if you’re 2 months or 30+ years post-having kids, MUTU System can work for you.
We’re so delighted to share with you a double MUTU recovery story, from mom and daughter, mama and grandmother, Katherine and Debbie.
Katherine – Mama to Teddy 4, Rosalie 2 and baby Annaliese 3.5 months
While I was pregnant, my back ached to the point of incapacitation. Whenever the baby kicked me in the middle below my belly button, it was startlingly painful. After the baby was born, my back was a little better, but my belly was incredibly painful. I was holding my stomach in my arms to laugh, to sneeze, and to drive over bumps in the road.
Feeling so weak and fragile, I didn’t recognize myself in the mirror. I felt like any thought of even low-level active family fun (kayaking/frisbee/long walks) was pretty much a daydream. I wondered if I was going to …embarrass myself… when I sneezed or lifted my oldest child.
“If you think your core is too far gone, it’s not, MUTU will build you back up”
MUTU is doable. I can’t emphasize enough how totally ineffective my core was, and the program is so carefully crafted for women in exactly my condition, so I could start at this very low level and know I was on the road to strength.
Going through the program I have the usual human problems with consistency. I got way more reliable when my mom joined, and now we are work out partners. She’s 2000 miles away, but we text and talk every day. I am very proud that here in module 4, the stability of my core is already enough to carry out my day to day work.
Totally love that I’m learning how to stand and how to move. What I’ve learned here, I’ve applied to weird stuff and found myself so much more capable than ever. I helped my husband pick up my brimfull cedar chest and hoist it 2 feet onto a moving van. Inhale release, Exhale and engage…
I have a lot of hope that the positive changes I’ve seen so far are just the tip of the iceberg.
If you’re afraid it won’t work, give it a chance, a good solid chance. If you think your core is too far gone, it’s not, MUTU will build you back up. Do you think it’s been too long since you had babies? My mom is 31 years postpartum, and she’s doing great. If you’re worried you won’t do the exercises right, you can ask MUTU/Nicole and get fast feedback. If it’s the cost, check what a series of beginner pilates classes would set you back and let it sink in… In my area, MUTU costs half of what one month at a gym would have been.

“I am recognizing that some things I just thought were normal parts of aging aren’t necessarily and may be corrected”
My daughter Katie told me about the program and that she was doing it. At first, I thought I’d do it just to support her efforts. I wasn’t sure what could be done after 31 years, but the more I learned the more I wanted to do it just for me.
When I first started, just 5 weeks ago, I didn’t think I had any particular symptoms. Now I am recognizing that some things I just thought were normal parts of aging aren’t necessarily and may be corrected.
“I think many of us just assumed that problems with leaking urine, prolapse related issues, weight gain, etc, were just the price we paid for our dear children”
I love the gentle core exercises, especially since I think I already can tell some difference.
We older mums didn’t have all the information about our bodies as readily available as young women do today. I think many of us just assumed that problems with leaking urine, prolapse related issues, weight gain, etc, were just the price we paid for our dear children. Some older mums seem to have just given up on their wellbeing, turning instead to food or shopping. I understand the temptation but I am beginning to see already that it is not too late to correct these problems, gently and with lots of encouragement.
Totally inspired by this mother-daughter duo! Proof that it’s never too late to heal, feel better and get a body that makes you feel good. Keep up the amazing work, Katherine and Debbie.
