Exercise After a C- Section

The Leg Lower
Lie on your back with knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Put one hand under your lower back as you did with the pelvic rock. Slide one leg flat to the floor and then bring the same leg up into a bent position. Repeat with the other leg. Relax. Repeat twice at first. As you begin to feel better and get stronger, repeat up to five times.
 

Final Thoughts

These exercises are a great way to start getting in shape after a C-section. After two weeks, you may want to try the exercises recommended in Exercise after Pregnancy. Consider giving yourself a good six weeks before starting a weight loss program because your body needs time to recover. Taking care of a newborn baby around the clock is a workout in itself!
