Stretch marks, midsection flabs, and postpartum weight.

Those are just a few of the physical changes that happen in women’s bodies after giving birth. Some women, if not most of them, want to get their pre-pregnancy figure back pronto, so they tend to go on a crash diet or a rigorous exercise program.

Be cautious, though, as longtime fitness trainer Sue Fleming told the medical website WebMD in an article. “The worst thing a woman can do is try too hard to do too much too soon—if you do, you’re likely to find yourself exhausted and discouraged and less likely to continue, and you’ll wind up carrying that baby weight a lot longer,” she explains.

The article emphasizes that a simple walking workout with the use of a baby stroller is one of the more popular yet lighter forms of a post-birth exercise. Fleming also suggested adding the modified sit-up to your workouts. So, when you squeeze and tighten your butt, relax, pull a pillow between your knees, squeeze, then relax. This builds your core strength while making her back stronger.
