Listen to your body
If during the pregnancy progresses you already exercise regularly, chances are it will be easier to restore your body shape as before. Regular exercise will indeed be difficult if you are experiencing fatigue during pregnancy, nausea, and dizziness. After giving birth, you probably also can not directly exercise more. When this happens, relax, and listen to what your body says. With careful planning, your strength will return.
Do not forget to Kegel
Kegel exercises are part of a very important postpartum. Kegel exercises several times throughout the day will help speed the healing process after a doctor perform an episiotomy (an incision to widen the vagina when the baby's exit). This exercise can also heal hemorrhoids and helps control the bladder.
Exercise your core
Core part of your body that needs to be restored is the center that includes the abdominals, lower back, and side abdominal muscles (obliques).

Tighten the muscles around your back and abdomen will help you restore your stomach to normal size. You can do this by lying down with both hands beside the head, and palms touching the floor. Do the movements up and down 15 times a day.
Unlike the other exercises, yoga helps you stay focused and keep the mood remained calm. One of its movements, pigeon pose, can stretch the muscle side of the foot by putting one foot to the other. This exercise is usually uncomfortable for women who are pregnant and postpartum. If you are not ready to leave your baby at home, you can also follow the baby yoga class. Thus, you can stay with your baby and meet other new mothers.

Actually, who's expecting you to as soon as possible to be slim? Husband, family, or friends? It was not there. Needless to assume you're like a celebrity, which immediately trim a few weeks after birth. It happened because they usually have the special "troops" to help care for their babies. The caregivers are employed at all times so that the celebrities could exercise five days a week, seven hours a day. They just follow a program of personal trainers and their nutritionists.
Exercise with baby
In the first few months after birth, when the exercise would be difficult to obtain. In fact, take the time to go to the bathroom it was so hard. However, after the child can sit alone, you can do some exercise with your baby, for example, then carried her to walk faster or up and down stairs. This time, the child who is involved in your program to lose weight because he could serve as a burden to your body. If you have this, no longer need to the gym to play an instrument right?
