When you began exercising during your pregnancy, slow and steady was the rule. That's even more important now after your pregnancy. You should only really start exercising when you feel capable of physical exertion again. Most mothers wait until they have had their six week postpartum checkup, but if you feel ready, then you can start sooner.
Pelvic Floor Strengthener
This exercise is perfect for improving circulation in the pelvic region, as well as keeping the vaginal canal in shape.
Head and Shoulder Raises
Always remember that you must get back into your exercise routine slowly. It is also a good idea to do these exercises in conjunction with cardiovascular work, such as walking, swimming and light weight training.
