As a general rule most women can begin an exercise program within 6 weeks of delivery, but this period could be slightly longer for some women, including those recovering from a Cesarean section. Most is a C-section will be able to exercise after the incision, he healed and their doctor has cleared for the year. Just how much time you start an exercise program will depend partly on what you feel. If you had an easy delivery without tears and a few interventions and regularly exercised before birth, you feel May to exercise a little light within 2 weeks of delivery.
If so, your doctor will probably allow you to engage in some light, including walking. Activities should generally be avoided, however, that several weeks after birth. For some women, however, even light exercise in the weeks following childbirth is not possible. If you had an episiotomy or severely torn while providing for example, your body May not be physically ready for a formal exercise program for at least 4-6 weeks after birth (noteâ€¦ it is also how long most doctors recommend that women abstain from relations).
How long you begin the exercise depends on your body and your unique situation. Be sure to consult your doctor before embarking on a new exercise program whatever your level of activity before and during pregnancy. Let’s say one more time because it is important, you should consult PROVIDER WITH YOUR HEALTH CARE IF YOU WANT to embark on an exercise program. Your body goes through a lot of physical trauma when you give a baby. In an program too early delay your recovery and could potentially be detrimental to your body permanently. It May also take longer than six weeks to heal completely if you start exercising too soon.
Now, if you feel better and able to before hitting the six weeks, please contact your health care provider. Most will encourage light exercise like walking, and some may encourage other types of activity especially if you were active before you got pregnant. Each individual is unique and different, hence their ability to return to a regular exercise routine can vary after childbirth. It is important that you listen to your body.
