The 411 on Weight Loss after Pregnancy

For most women, having a baby is worth having the extra 25 plus pounds on your body. But that doesn’t mean that you necessarily want all those additional pounds on your body.

Weight loss after pregnancy is definitely a goal, but don’t rush into it. After labor and delivery, your baby needs time to heal and recover. As a rule of thumb, healthcare providers recommend that it’s best to wait until your postpartum check-up before starting to actively lose your pregnancy weight.

According to the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, women can begin an exercise program as soon as they feel up to it, but it’s recommended that they speak to their doctor beforehand. Exercising after pregnancy can enhance your physical well-being and even help with your postpartum mood swings.

For a healthy postpartum weight loss, it’s important for you to realize that you will never regain your former pre-pregnancy body. Pregnancy often causes permanent changes to your body, including a bigger waistline, hips that are slightly wider than before, and a softer belly. Keep this in mind, so you can adjust your weight loss goal to be realistic.
