First of all, when can I workout again?
If you’re a new mom and your birth was pretty straightforward, you can usually exercise within a few weeks. If your birth was more complicated or you didn’t do much exercise before your pregnancy, it might be a little longer before it’s safe to break a sweat again.
Your doctor is THE person to ask. Make sure they give you the okay before you start queueing up your workout playlist. It’s also important to start gentle and work your way upto more intense workouts when you feel ready.

Don’t neglect cardio
Your abdominals are important but we’ll come to those guys later. What you also need is a solid cardio routine to get your heart rate up, your sweat pouring, and fat burnt. This is because baby weight hangs around for a lot of moms, even years after birth, and losing that is essential. Otherwise you’re not gonna see all the hard work you do on your abs!
Pretty much any cardio that works for you is great. Running, cycling, your fave YouTube dance workout, whatever!

A recent study shows abdominal exercises WORK
It’s a small study, but it’s awesome news. Do a series of ab-focused workouts 2-3 times a week (or more if you’re really feeling it) including:
- Pelvic tilt and bridge. Nice and easy but so so impactful. You can usually do this one quite soon after birth too (if your doctor says yes!)
- Scissor kicks. Lowering and lifting your legs will engage every ab muscle.
- Plank. One of the most feared and hated positions. Such in your stomach. Tighten every muscle. When you get good at it you can try a side plank.
- Crunches. For a little extra, hold for a few counts when your abs are most engaged.
What’s your fridge packin’?
Here’s the part where we tell you it’s celery sticks and brown rice forever, right? We’re not that mean!
Your diet needs to include variety and nutrition more than anything. That means complex carbs instead of processed bread and pasta. LOTS of fruit and vegetables. Grains, beans, lentils, healthy yogurt, protein-rich lean meats, fish, and low-cal snacks.
The hard part is those awkward moments between meals when you’re feeling in need of a pick-me-up. If you’ve got healthy choices ready to go that keep you fuller for longer, you’ll be golden when the munchies hit.
