The consequences for the body after giving birth are numerous. The distention of the abdomen, the flaccidity, and new accumulations of fat generated to ensure the sustenance of the baby are some of the reasons that lead new mothers to want to resume physical activity as soon as possible. But after the intense work that childbirth entails, it is recommended to be patient and always work hand in hand with experts to achieve the proposed objectives without generating complications in the body.
Exercising at any stage of our lives is essential to enjoy good health and have a balanced life. It’s proven that people who exercise often are less likely to suffer from diseases, for example, heart disease, in addition to managing stress better.
But when you have a baby, finding time to exercise can be difficult. Hormonal changes can make you feel sentimental and some days you may feel too tired for a complete workout. But do not give up!.
We know that you are worried about not being able to recover the body you had before, but we are sure that you can make it, and we are here to help you. Exercising after pregnancy may not be easy, but it can do wonders for your well-being and give you the energy you need to raise your baby.
Why should you practice postnatal exercise?
During pregnancy, our body undergoes a transformation that affects, besides other things, the abdominal muscles, the spine, and the rib cage. Likewise, the pelvic floor is very weakened after having suffered the increasing weight of the uterus and the pushing of childbirth, which is why postpartum exercises are essential.
We understand that as a new mother you have all your energy and time focused on your baby, but we also understand the importance of dedicating some quality time to improve your health and lifestyle through exercise, and why not, recover the body that you had before pregnancy.
NOTE: We know that some women are concerned that physical activity affects their breastfeeding. We want to let you know that the exercises carried out during this program do not!.
What we do recommend is to have a balanced diet since it will be necessary to balance what the body requires for physical effort and what the baby needs for feeding.
