You already know that exercise during pregnancy is great for your health — but getting active soon after you give birth is just as important. Once you get the okay from your practitioner to do more than walking workouts, you can begin stretching and strengthening exercises using light weights or your own bodyweight. Wondering when to start exercising again, and what moves to do? We lead you through easy workouts to get back in shape post-baby. No matter how fit you were before and even during pregnancy, postpartum exercise presents a unique set of challenges. Your body is still healing from delivery, and with a newborn in the house, you might be feeling more tired than ever. But finding time to fit in fitness is amazing for both your body and mind—it can be just what you need to get back to feeling like your pre-pregnancy self.
