The Mocha Moms explain the necessity of parents taking care of themselves.

A big part of mom's job description is taking care of other people. But how does she keep taking care of herself? But with so many celebrity moms out there showing off their hot bodies just weeks after child birth, what's a regular mom to do?

Panel members Jolene Ivey, Cheli English-Figaro, Leslie Morgan Steiner and Avonie Reaves talk about ways to stay fit, healthy and even sexy.
