Exercising after delivery

Many women are eager to slim down after baby arrives, but it takes time for your body to recover. The American Council on Exercise offers these suggestions for new moms:

-Talk to the doctor about when it is safe to resume exercise. Your goals and exercise schedule will depend on the type of delivery you had, and your general health. Discuss with the doctor.

-Gradually ease back into exercise, building up duration and intensity over time.

-Drink plenty of fluids & avoid getting overtired.

-Support your abdomen and breasts when you exercise.

-Eat a balanced and nutritious diet.
