Exercise After Pregnancy

Tips on Safe Exercise Following Pregnancy

Here are some other tips to keep in mind when exercising after pregnancy:
 
  • Don't overexert yourself
  • Limit the impact level of the exercises until your body has had time to regain its strength
  • Avoid rapid changes in direction, as your sense of balance may still be affected
  • Ease into your routine and gradually build up the impact level
  • Make sure to give yourself ample warm-up and cool-down sessions
  • Stay hydrated.
     
Stop exercising and contact your healthcare provider immediately if you experience any of the following:
 
  • Pain
  • Increased bleeding
  • Dizziness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Faintness.
     
And remember, before doing anything, talk to your healthcare provider. Together you can create a workout plan that considers your weight loss goals, your pregnancy weight gain, your delivery method, and current physical fitness level.
