Who is the babywearing Health Coach?
Hi! I am Dr. MJ Ong, The Babywearing Health Coach. I am an accredited exercise scientist and pregnancy & postpartum health & fitness coach. I am the founder of Active Mama Tribe WA and my aim is to help mums-to-be and new mums be active and healthy on your own terms. My approach to health & fitness is keeping it simple & consistent, finding opportunities to move our body and practicing healthy eating habits. I have over four years of experience training pregnant women through my research and published several research articles on pregnancy & exercise. Prior to my PhD, I was a personal trainer and group fitness leader for over five years.
Research has proven that small, simple changes results in long term sustainable lifestyle modification. My approach is to help you build habit forming structures into your current lifestyle which will improve your health in preparation for motherhood.
One of my mantra is “when we know better, we can do better”. But as a mother of two young children, I know that sometimes life can get busy and overwhelming, making it difficult to find time to look after ourselves. But we cannot help or nurture others when our “cups” are empty. As mothers, our self-care is as important as the care we give to our families, if not more. Over the last 6 years of juggling work, uni and kids, even though I might know better, sometimes I just can’t seem to do better. But with my knowledge gained from years in the health & fitness industry and as a researcher, I have come up with a way to help myself and many other women to manage their lifestyles and look after their well-being all at the same time.
Whether you are looking to get active & healthy during pregnancy motherhood, my blog has free information that can help you. Want to feel better quicker? Get in touch with me for a Free Health Health Strategy Session so that you can be guided on your health & fitness journey.
With You in Health, Dr MJ
