Postpartum: Getting Back into Exercise Gently

Postpartum: Getting Back into Exercise Gently

How do I set up my postpartum fitness programme?

After giving birth, you need to rest while your body recovers and makes the transition back to normal. Start by toning up the perineum and abdominal muscles as soon as you get the go-ahead from health professionals. Gentle practices such as yoga and stretching are ideal to start. By listening to your feelings and going gradually, with adapted exercises, you will soon be able to resume cardio activity to get back into shape.
