In order for the body to return to shape before the birth, mothers are advised to exercise regularly after giving birth.
When do you start exercising?
It depends on the mode of delivery, if the mother had exercised before and during pregnancy, and depending on whether she feels mentally and physically ready for exercising. The advice is that you start exercising six weeks after the natural birth or six months after a caesarean. However, before that, it is advisable to consult your gynaecologist and your physiotherapist.
How and where to practice your exercises? If you are not able to go to one of the centres that offer exercises for young mothers, a physical therapist can arrange an exercise program for you that you can do at your own home.
Our program includes exercises for moms and babies, whereby moms exercise while their babies are next to them, resting or even participating in exercises. In addition to exercising and shaping your body in the presence of your baby, you will have the opportunity to share information and your experience with other mothers about the beauty of motherhood.
Exercise from the first day
There are exercises that you can do from the first day, such as breathing exercises, called
Kegel exercises – exercises to strengthen pelvic floor muscles.
Only putting some effort can return your body back to shape and help you be a more satisfied and happier mother.
