    Feeling bad. If you start feeling stressed about exercising, take a break! Remember that sleeping and bonding with your baby is much more important than forcing yourself to exercise. While some self-discipline is always good and will pay off later, the first year with your new baby is only now. Enjoy your time as much as you can! If you don’t really feel like initiating some ambitious post pregnancy exercise program, then don’t.


    Prior to beginning any post pregnancy exercise program it is important to obtain clearance from your family doctor. A cesarean birth, episiotomy, a difficult birth or other complications may require you to wait 12 weeks before beginning a workout regime.

    Many physical changes that occur during pregnancy persist for 4-6 weeks after delivery so exercise intensity should resume very gradually. Consideration needs to be given to the stresses placed on the pelvic floor when choosing a post partum exercise program. After a normal vaginal delivery, non ballistic exercises can be commenced as soon as comfortable, with special attention placed on the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles. Activities that place an increased gravitational load on the pelvic floor such as running or high impact aerobics should be delayed until you receive clearance from your attending physician.
     
    Exercises here are gentle on the abdominals to start. Your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles have been over-stretched and are therefore very weak.

    Exercises must
    • Isolate and strengthen the deep abdominal muscles 
    • Retrain the stretched pelvic floor muscles with kegels and gentle ball exercises
    • Stretch or strengthen the multifidus muscles
    • Re-educate the stabilizing musculature
    It is very important that you are able to recruit the stabilizing musclulature prior to attempting anything more advanced.

Another great form of post pregnancy exercising is yoga. You can either perform post pregnancy yoga at home or by attending a class or some regular form of yoga once your body has healed.
