You carried your baby inside you for nine months, watching your belly (and more) stretch before your eyes. Now that he or she is on the outside, you might be excited to get back to some of your pre-pregnancy activities, or you might be eager to get into shape after baby. But let’s take a quick breath here. You just had a baby! Your body (and mind) went through a lot, and you owe it to yourself to ease into any postpartum exercise routine.
There are many reasons to exercise during pregnancy. Some women want to maintain mobility and do something simple and healthy. That’s great! Even walking can do wonders. Some women want to stay in shape during pregnancy. Just make sure to get the approval from your doctor, take note of these considerations before you and your bump hit the gym.
You’ve probably been focused on taking care of your precious new baby for the last nine months. You’ve read books, bought tiny outfits, and baby-proofed your home. But, wait…have you given any thought to what you’ll need as a new mom?
