Postpartum Exercise Recommendations: How, When, & Why. After you have a baby, your body might feel completely different. After all, you’ve just created another human!

Since you might feel like a completely different person, you have to re-train your body to move in ways that used to seem so simple. You are recovering not only from having a baby, but from the pregnancy itself. Kegel exercise.

Use this exercise to tone your pelvic floor muscles, which support the uterus, bladder, small intestine and rectum. When practiced regularly, Kegel exercises can help reduce urinary and anal incontinence. Contract your pelvic floor muscles, as if you’re attempting to stop urinating midstream.

Recommended postpartum exercise includes: 1. Pregactive postnatal workouts. 2. PregAqua. 3. Walking.

4. Swimming. 5. Yoga. 6. Pilates. 7. Meditation. 8. Mindfulness.

How Can I Find the Time for Postnatal Exercise? When you are a new mother you will likely be sleep-deprived and tired. You will feel exhausted and will struggle to find the time for any exercise or activity.

Postpartum Pain and Exercise You already know that exercise during pregnancy is great for your health — but getting active soon after you give birth is just as important. Regularly breaking a sweat boosts your energy levels, helps you to sleep better, relieves stress and even potentially staves off postpartum depression (PPD). Pregnant or postpartum women should do at least 150 minutes (for example, 30 minutes a day, five days a week) of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity per week, such as brisk walking, during and after their pregnancy. It is best to spread this activity throughout the week.

Says Catherine Cram, a fitness professional specializing in prenatal and postpartum exercise: “By binding the abdominal muscles, you’re reducing the work those muscles do, and they become weaker as a result. I recommend binders as a support garment only when the woman has a back problem.” advertisement | page continues below. Later in pregnancy, a belly support belt may reduce discomfort while walking or running. Avoid becoming overheated, especially in the first trimester.

Drink plenty of water, wear loose-fitting clothing, and exercise in a temperature-controlled room. Do not exercise outside when it is very hot or humid. If you had a C-section or a complicated birth, talk to your health care provider about when to start an exercise program. Generally, you might be able to start light exercises about four to six weeks after your delivery.

When your health care provider gives you the OK: Take breast-feeding into account. New guidelines from ACOG have recently stated that the 6 week postpartum wait may not be all that nescessary and it has merely become a myth. For some, I would say yes WAIT. But for others who are able to, why not? You must think I am crazy to rush back into exercise so soon after delivery, but not all moms feel like waiting and not all moms.

Prolonged rest/physical inactivity actually contributes to fatigue, promotes increased body weight and decreased vigor and mental acuity, and increases the risk of developing future chronic health conditions. An emerging body of evidence indicates that exercise in.

  • Let me clear!
    She is saying that if you have a gap of more than 2 fingers after checking abdominal split…. you cannot do intense workout till you recover the gap!
    It depends on body to body!
    Hope new mums got their answer❤❤

  • Do these exercises help In rectifying diastasis recti, I have a 3 year 11moth son n I have Dr, can I do these n can they rectify my dr

  • Thanks for all the great advice Bridget. I had a great journey with you through my 9 months of pregnancy and now afterwards. You’ve become a personal doula. ��

  • What do you mean it 9only going to make it worse if I dont know how to correctly do it? How would I know if I’m doing it correctly I dont wish to make it worse please help. I would like to try this bc I have a mommy pooch no too much I would like to flatten my stomach

  • I am 6 1/2 months pregnant and now I’m scared to exercise I didn’t realize we were so fragile after the delivery. would it be okay to use a, not so tight, waist trainer?

  • Felt soo good at 11 weeks post parum. Lots of squats but also lots of rest, so I could do it. I have not beem using glutes or hip flexors enough. This was great! Really got the heart rate up. Be sure to take 5 minutes and do some of your own stretches. Left hip got super tight whixh I believe is because I did not take time to stretch

  • Hi mam your speech is very inspirational one. I have 4 month old baby. I already started to go to gym. But I feel little pain in my lowest abdominal. Do I need to wait or can I continue?

  • Before pregnancy I was a such gym freak, so I thought this was gonna be a piece of cake and not challenging at all. So naive of me! I’m already done after 15 minutes ���� Thanks for this great workout. ��

  • I did this workout with my 9 month old on my back in the carrier and it kicked my butt even going easy and slow. Love your videos! I recommend them to everybody

  • Can i do this exercise after 11 days of delivery. I’ve normal vaginal birth, throughout my pregnancy i ve been doing excercise but now i stopped. My stitches r almost healed. I do have continuous pain in my back seems like sore pelvic floor muscles

  • hi todays is my exact 4 months of c ection. can i strt doing this exercise???n also can i start walking on a track of my park. its 3000 metre track. is it good for me??? still i sometimes feel sour pain in stiches.

  • So sooo glad I found this. I had my second baby 17 weeks ago back in November and I’ve been a stay at home mom for 3 years almost. I am definitely out of shape, but lacking in time and motivation or energy to get my old body back. Everything I kept finding seemed too advanced for me to start off with and honestly made me feel even worse to see women at only 8 weeks post partum doing way more intense exercises. This was a perfect start off for me to help me get back into the groove of things. Your encouraging words made me feel even better (the knowing baby may already be crying, that ANY exercise is better than none and is success!!!) I seriously thank you for making me feel like less of a blob and a failure this morning. You helped me have the patience and understanding that I needed to give myself today. Subscribed and favorited this video and look forward to checking out your others. XOXO sincerely, one tired and thankful mom.

  • Hii…
    I have delivered a baby 7 months ago by c section.. My Tummy still so big… Please post a vedio regarding this… And plz ma’am give some suggestion.

  • Hi Amy, thank you for your videos, they are great ��! I’m almost 16 weeks postpartum and have followed lots of your videos. I love the post natal Pilates, would you add more of these please?
    I am also wondering how many calories are burnt following this cardio workout (I’m using my fitness pal to track my workouts) as that would be great to know. Thanks again and love to your and your little one ����

  • HI! 6 months post-partum here and been doing post-partum workouts since 3-monts…how can you tell whenn your diastisis is healed enough to safely do plank position/push ups again?

  • I jist had my baby May 1, and I was planning to start exercising BUT wasnt sure if it was ok to do it.
    Thank you very much for this video!

  • Hello there, have you considered Custokebon Secrets yet? Simply do a google search engine search. On there you’ll discover an awesome guidelines about how exactly you can lost a lot of weight. Why don’t you give it a chance? perhaps it is going to work for you too.

  • I loved this. Thank you. Very helpful. Ya know… I’ve been wanting to find a video or even just written info somewhere about all the movements that new moms do every day that we should maybe modify if you have this. I can’t find that anywhere! The thing that made me wonder is because I did see something about how you get out of bed (for me, something I was doing wrong several times a night to check on the baby until just last wk!) that can make this condition worse. I read that sitting straight up in bed to get up is not good. that you should roll to your side & push yourself up until this is healed, like when your pregnant. That just made me wonder what else I’m doing wrong! Anyway, just a thought! I really love your videos. Thank you. (I’m getting there, feeling stronger, thanks to you)

  • 7 weeks pp. I’ve been doing some gentle exercises and going for walks, but super happy with myself for managing to make it through this work out doing mainly the hardest options! Super proud of my baby son for staying asleep the whole time to let me do it too haha. Thanks so much for your videos, perfect balance encouragement & exercise walkthroughs. Appreciate it! Hope you and your family are well.

  • Bridget I’m a pelvic health physical therapist and I love your videos! You are very educated and also a very gifted educator. You inspire me! I wish I had known about Doulas when I had my babies. Thank you for all that you do and keep doing it, girl!

  • Hi i am from pakistan i had a one month old baby and i have fracture in my ankle can you suggest me to do any exercise to lose weight

  • I wasn’t told when I could start working out and I don’t have any follow up appointments with my OB. I’m 5 weeks postpartum and I was wondering when I can go to the gym and doing swuats and stuff? I had a 4th degree tear. Also, I’m in the military so I really need to get back in shape for my Combat Fitness Test.

  • This is great video with so many tips included! So does it mean no exercises whatsoever until after 4th week at least?I know you said not to start exercising too soon but is working with resistant bands on upper body week after delivery too much too soon?

  • I know this is years old, but what about just taking walks? Is that still too much? I just had my third child, fourth c section, and I was hoping I could start a very low impact walking routine. 10 minutes a day. I’m 6 weeks post

  • I really wanted to see my again slim, i am 32yrs and my daughter is 1.8yrs, I have that still hanging around me, i feel low in energy all is due to fat I carry, my height is 5 feet 4inchs, weight is 86 kgs according to BMI status I should around 56Kgs, but confuse to start the gym routine exercise or still postpartum exercise to start with??

  • After having my first child no one advised me on what to do or not to do. I even asked hospital staff if there anything I should avoid, the answer, nope, nothing! Well, I got out of the hospital barely 48 hours after having a baby, was on quite the adrenaline high and went right back to my regular life; laundry, dishes, cooking, going up stairs for a bath, etc. Fastforward 7 months postpartum and I wound up with a prolapsed bladder during my first menstrual cycle. Got pregnant a month later. Just had my second baby and now I’m basically bed ridden because of my prolapse. I cannot pick up my 17 mo old toddler, not for diapers, not for mealtime. I feel like I’m failing her. Cannot carry my son in his little car seat. Just horrible. So yeah, definitely take things SLOWLY!! I am now heavily wounded, mentally and physically, am having to change my entire life; how I stand, eat, sleep, dress, etc. Very little external support. I was evaluated by three professionals last year, all of which examined me laying, which is the worse position to see the full extent of a prolapse. Only advice I received was to do kegels until I gave birth again, but they only made my situation worse, so I stopped. I’m now waiting to see someone else and this time I know I have to be evaluated while standing and will demand as much!

  • I have a 2 finger gap at 12 weeks postpartum, gained 22 pounds in pregnancy mostly on thighs. Can I try thigh thinning exercises at this time or have to work on gap reduction first.

  • Is this workout ok if you have diastasis recti?? I’m nervous to begin working out because I read some certain movements such as crunch motions can make it worse. I do not want the surgery, so I’m am praying I can fix it with workouts! I had twins so it really did a number on my body ��. Dunno if I can get myself looking better again or not! This looks like a great workout though!!��

  • Yes, I too am guilty of jumping through diet plan to others as well, I think that I need to have tried every fat loss program that was available, however in the end not one of them made it easier for me to lose and maintain the weight off. I ended up trying for the very last time using the Custokebon Secrets simply because my cooworker who told me great things about it and so far to date I’ve successfully lost 15 lbs in 3 weeks!

  • Can i do this in bed? Or has to be on hard surface?
    Also i am 1 month after c section and still have some blood coming out, ok to do this?
    Thanks!!

  • 5months pp thanks for this video. My baby just sits watching me and laughing she thinks I’m playing with her or maybe dancing with these moves. I’m doing this routine atleast 3times a week. Later maybe I’ll do more

  • Kavita I gained 15kg weight during my pregnancy n loosed 25kg within 1year automatically after c sec. my height is 157 cm n my weight is 55kg. I gained 5kg n now am 55kg but everyone even my friends are asking me whether am ok with my health. I feel totally healthy but sometimes I feel tired. Only tiredness is my issue other than that I won’t get sick. I Brest feed my son for 1 year n 10 months. A couple of weeks back only I stopped Brest feed. I couldn’t concentrate too. I just feel like something is dumping me. My husband makes me feel happy always but I just feel so. Can you help me!

  • Hi there, I am 2 weeks post partum and I have started 3 mile walks around block. I feel good but I am wondering is this considered too much too soon? I don’t want to cause more harm than good.

  • I just had my baby two months ago and I have been going just about everyday since 6weeks and you have just opened my eyes! Thank you so much for all the advice!

  • hey
    Pregnancy and Postpartum TV i have a question. At 16:50 you are doing sit-ups… is it safe on diastasis recti? i had my twins 7 yrs ago and had a 3 finger gap which is now 2 finger (without any exercise etc). now i wana loose some weight and looking out for a complete workout schedule. i came across your video but i am confused with this sit-ups thing if one already has recti split.
    another question. i have read that 2 finger gap is normal. does this mean i can go for sit-ups and crunches???

  • I’m 34 yrs and mother of 4. Had my twins back in Feb. I got umbilical hernia in my 2 pregnancy but Drs say that it’s not bad and doesn’t require surgery immediately, infact if I wear a binder, I might not need one. I also have distatis recti.
    You are a blessing for me coz I was looking for some resources and videos and I found about you. I did your course also and downloaded the resources. Have started doing the above workout routine daily and I love the fact that you also have for distatis recti and low impact on the side window.
    Thanks ��

  • Since this is full body, how do you recommend doing other workouts with it? Especially the days before and after, giving specific muscles time to rest? I love doing this exercise and would love some tips.

  • I read a lot of superb reviews on the internet about how exactly Custokebon Secrets (google search it) will help you lost lots of weight. Has anyone tested out this popular diet plan?

  • Its still surprise me just how lots of people do not know about Custokebon Secrets (just google search it) despite the fact that a lot of people lost lots of weight using it. Thanks to my buddy who told me about this. I’ve lost a ton of fat.

  • This was such a blessing and very well done! I have had two losses with being pregnant a total of 9 months. I don’t feel especially confident of the mommy tummy without being a mommy.:( I started doing HIIT hearing how great it was for me. Despite doing the PT exercises for diastasis recti, saw the bulging getting worse. Ugh. I knew I wasn’t supposed to do crunches and situps but didn’t know so much else in HIIT was off limits! It’s tiring trying to constantly think of modifications. I was very frustrated and sad and glad to find your channel! So little help for postpartum out there!!!

  • mam i gave birth 7dec and aftr 2 days baby died bt i want to losse my belly fat nd i also want baby plan again.Tell me when i cant do exercise nd which time i can baby plan again

  • Thank you for your lovely videos. I have been doing postnatal HIIT and cardio following your channel. I have a few questions if you can help me with the answers:
    1. 1 finger gap above belly button area alone. Is this considered Diastisis Recti?
    2. Can we do bicep curls in postnatal exercise (Diastisis recti safe?)
    I have a finger gap, I am not sure if I have the condition but still I do only DR safe modifications shown by you.

  • How long do I do this workout until I get back into my old workout routine before pregnancy? Which included push ups, sit ups, etc. I’ve been doing this workout for about five weeks. Every Monday through Friday. I just don’t want to get back into my old routine to soon.

  • So in November I started doing this workout once a day everyday. In January I had lost 20 pounds. I kinda lost motivation for a bit. I maintained my weight, but my weight loss journey isn’t finished yet. Started doing these workouts again; March 14th 2020. Been going strong every day now. Lost another 4 lbs. God help me keep myself motivated. I’m coming out of this a bad b*tch. ❤️

  • I have just started these exercises and they are so good. I am 18 months postpartum with 1 finger diastasis recti but my belly is huge. Please guide me how to flatten it.

  • Amy’s videos are excellent! Just the right amount of talk, explanation, and encouragement. I have tried other workout videos online and always come back to Amy because they are the best!!

  • Love love love this and your other postnatal workoutshad my second baby 16 weeks ago and have been doing one of your workouts every day during this lockdown. Feel so much better and full of energy! Thanks ☺️

  • 6 weeks post partum and this work out is terrific! It’s just enough for me to really feel the burn in the short time I have to myself with naps. Love all your video’s!

  • Really appreciate the DR friendly modifications in this follow along workout! It’s hard to find HIIT workouts that include them. Thank you so much!

  • Today is my 5 months after I give birth to my daughter and I have 3rd degree cut close to my rectum. Can I do this postpartum exercises?

  • Ok so i am 8 wks postpartum. I was pregnant with my third baby when my secon one was 9mths all so pretty much a back to back pregnancy. Before being pregnant 2nd time i use to workout so this workout would have been pretty easy for me. However during and after both pregnancy i did no workouts at all so now im in bad shape. Just did this workout and was able to do 17mins of it, after that i was all out of breath, sweating, feeling my face arms and thighs throbbing so this was deffo a good workout. I will try to do this every day and hope to see some good results.

  • Thank you for this advice! I have the gitters to go back to working out. and I have to admit, I did do a low impact workout today and then I saw this, this gave me a wake up call.

  • Dear Bridget, thank you for your videos. It’s really informative. If it’s possible, please make a video on breech babies and ways to turn them

  • I had my 2nd baby 4 years back still struggling to get back into shape.. my arms and legs are in shape except I still look 4 months pregnant.. will these excersises help in shedding those baby fat around my tummy and also I have 2 finger DR gap

    I’m post natal 10 weeks. Up & down for workout. But your post natal workout is really awesome. Only 20 minute I can have great workout.

  • I had my daughter a year ago and had a 4 finger diastasis recti gap. I also put on 50 pounds during my pregnancy. Your hiit workouts along with a healthy diet helped me lose 20 pounds so far. I’ve been feeling so confident in my own skin. Your diastasis workouts are better than the ones I did in physical therapy too. I have just a 1 finger gap now!

  • Hii Sarah.. my lo is 1yr 4mnts old..

  • I am 20 months post partum. Parts of my body are back to normal, but I am finding that I really need to be extra careful with my hips still. I had 5 kids in 7 years, carried 4 if them for 42 weeks. I feel like I could do post partum workouts forever! Also, I need to be careful to heal my diastasis recti and strengthen my pelvic floor.

  • I just had my baby 1 month.. I’ve been anxious to do exercise but I’m still not recovered.. I don’t feel like it. I’m breastfeeding and losing too much weight. I look slim but I don’t want to lose my weight. I want to maintain my weight and every time I weigh myself I lose to many pounds and I’m starting to get worried. Thank you for your video its a huge help. I want to make sure I do whats right.. Thank you ��

  • Hello there, have you considered this kind of diet plan called the Custokebon Secrets? My buddy says it helps people lost lots of weight. Is that possible? I also noticed a lot of good review about this diet plan. Thoughts?

  • I am 8 months post partum and was finaly able to have some time to exercise. Your vídeo is amazing. Was able to do it until the end, my baby woke up on the cool down part.:)

  • I had my 3rd baby 16 months ago. Even though I’m farther out, I’m finally easing back into regular exercise, so I love all of Amy’s postnatal videos! I started several weeks ago with the core workouts to strengthen my core first, and now I’m trying this one. I love it! Amy is so right that I don’t want to do a lot of jumping up and down while I’m still nursing! LOL! So this is perfect for me to get back into it at my own pace and with what is comfortable for my body. And it’s a lot easier for me to squeeze 20 minutes in than an hour. Love this! Thanks Amy!
