Weight Loss After Pregnancy
Weight loss tips after pregnancy
Now that you left the pregnancy behind, it's time to lose the weight you gained during pregnancy. If you have been an active mother during your pregnancy and have given birth normally, you can start exercising shortly after delivery. We recommend that mothers who have given birth by cesarean section consult their doctor before starting to exercise.
Easy to say, 9 months and 10 days have passed. Since this is a long process, you can start your exercises with light aerobic movements. Thus, you will not tire yourself too much.
We recommend that you choose exercises that will not put a load on your body. Walking, cycling or swimming would be a good start. Of course, be careful not to overload yourself while doing these exercises. Make it short throughout the day. In the future, you can increase the duration and intensity of your exercise. For those who want to exercise at home, yoga will be a good alternative. However, before starting exercises such as yoga and pilates, you should consult a specialist. Otherwise, you may harm your body. You can also do sports by taking your baby with you with the stroller. Moreover, you both will be much happier because you can spend time together.
Although you feel ready, if you experience pain, dizziness, shortness of breath or sudden bleeding, you should stop your exercise immediately. Do not forget to drink plenty of water before and after exercise.
In addition to helping you lose the weight you gained during pregnancy, another benefit of exercising is that your body releases endorphins with sports. Endorphins will help reduce postpartum depression.
Also, don't forget to add movements that will work the pelvic floor in your workout. Thus, the bladder and surrounding muscles will return to their original state in a shorter time.
Finally, do not rush to lose the weight you have gained. Remember that you gained those kilos in a period of 9 months. Therefore, it is quite normal that it takes time to get rid of your excesses. Also, remember that your child will need you in this process. Short exercises during the day will be enough for now.
