My name is Riina Laaksonen and I am the Founder and Coach at Nordic Fit Mama. I'm Personal Trainer specialized in pre- and postnatal exercise, a Nutritional Coach and a Life Coach. I am also a mother of three active boys.
After having two of my children very close together, I felt like being a stranger in my own body. Health and wellbeing have always been a very important part of my life and I have always been active. But after having children, there were many exercises, that felt difficult to do or were not possible to do at all. Also my posture was different and I wasn't able to run like before.
When I first started to workout after pregnancies, I made a lot of mistakes in my exercise. That's why I later started to study pre- and postnatal training. My mission is to spread this very important information to moms all over the world. So that moms would know how to speed up recovery and healing after pregnancy and childbirth. And know how to start working out safe way and get back the core control and confidence.
After I learned about the safe and right type of exercises it was amazing to notice how much I was able to help my body to heal and how much energetic and better I felt about myself.
The wellbeing of mothers is very important matter to me. Many things related to the problems after pregnancy and child birth are often taboos. With Nordic Fit Mama online programs we want to break these taboos and give the needed, medically approved support for moms all over the world.
According to Save the Children’s State of the World’s Mothers report, Nordic countries rank high being the best countries in the world for mothers. Finland has been in the top 10 countries each of the 14 times the international report has been released. This is a tremendous achievement, but not an accident. There is a wide consensus in Finland that maternal and infant health is a high priority, and the national budget reflects that.
In terms of population, Finland is a small country. There are only 5.4 million of us. Our small nation has always considered it important to look after its mothers and children. For nearly 100 years, we have worked to ensure that this is possible. The work we have done has borne fruit in many sectors. We are at the top of international comparisons for more than just the status of mothers. We also top the list of highest education level, least corruption and least failed states.
So we have worked over a century to ensure the wellbeing of mothers and babies, and now it's time to pass out the crucial information further. We want to spread the knowledge and help mothers in all over the world to ensure healthy pregnancy and postpartum recovery. Digitalization has given us a fantastic opportunity to do that in time and cost efficient way.
The aim of Nordic Fit Mama is to give all mothers the information how to take care of themselves and their bodies in a safe and sustainable way. To ensure a safe and healthy childhood of the baby and also to avoid physical problems of the mother.
