Tips on Getting Your Pre-Pregnancy Body Back After Giving Birth

There is nothing quite as embarrassing as being asked, “So when are you due?” when you had a baby three months ago. Pregnant women are beautiful – postpartum flab, not so much.

But how do you fit weight loss into your schedule when you are adjusting to life with a newborn, and have hardly any time to yourself? You can get your pre-pregnancy body back relatively soon after giving birth, and we have tips on how to make it happen.

An Active and Healthy Pregnancy

Shedding postpartum pounds begins during pregnancy. You will not have to lose weight that you do not gain. Sorry for being Captain Obvious here, but it’s true. Of course, pregnancy is not the right time to go on a weight loss diet, or to restrict calories. But by making sure that the calories you consume are of high quality by eating whole foods that are nutritionally rich, you look after your baby’s health and save yourself lots of work after giving birth.

Prenatal exercise will keep you fit throughout your nine months, and might set you up for an easier delivery. Childbirth is not unlike running a marathon, and building up stamina will always be beneficial. Being physically active and getting lots of fresh air also helps many expectant mothers fight pregnancy signs and symptoms like morning sickness, back pain, and fatigue.
