The Health Improvement after Pregnancy (HIP) Program was developed by the MotHERS ProgramTM to help mothers make healthy lifestyle changes. Our program focuses on exercises tailored to new moms and healthy eating through smart food choices. We do not believe in overnight weight-loss solutions or yo-yo dieting. Our goal is a healthier and happier life for you and your whole family.
The HIP Program is an innovative and interactive mobile website based lifestyle modification program for women in the postpartum period. The program will guide and help motivate daily and weekly physical activity, provide nutritional guidance and be a means to log activity, periodic dietary intake and physical goals such as postpartum weight loss.
