Mommy Tummy Advice
So you’ve had your baby and now it’s time to do crunches to get your abs back in shape again Right? Well, actually no.
Here is some sound mommy tummy advice for you:
- Fitness and exercise after pregnancy is a lot more complicated than that.
In fact, exercises like crunches may actually do more harm than good in the initial postpartum period, especially if you have developed a condition known as diastasis-recti.
- Delay abdominal reconditioning until 4 to 6 weeks postpartum. Avoid lifting and carrying heavy objects.
Wearing a girdle or corset to help you recover faster and be comfortable during this time.
If you develop a cough and/or sneezing from allergies or a respiratory illness in the few months after a Cesarean delivery, you will be protected if you wear your postpartum Corset; it will give you the compression you need to provide support for your scar and to help ease discomfort.
