Health Tip: Exercising After Baby is Born

Health Tip: Exercising After Baby is Born

01/14/13

(HealthDay News) -- 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 your doctor about when it is safe to resume exercise.
  • Gradually ease back into exercise, building up duration and intensity over time.
  • Drink plenty of fluids, and avoid getting overtired.
  • Support your abdomen and breasts when you exercise.
  • Eat a balanced and nutritious diet.
  • Your goals and exercise schedule will depend on the type of delivery you had, and your general health. Discuss with your doctor.
