Postnatal fitness: How to lose weight after a baby


Toning your bum

You may have been expecting a mommy tummy but having a matching mommy bum might have come as a surprise - surely it should be more toned after carrying around your baby for 9 months!

Alas that's rarely the case. So to firm up your behind, Justina Perry, founder of MamaBabyBliss has come up with this baby friendly exercise for your butt.

1. Lie on your back, with knees bent and place your baby onto your tummy with her back resting against your knees. Hold onto her waist or hips.

2. Breathe in to prepare and draw in your pelvic floor muscles. Gently raise your bottom of the floor creating a gentle pelvic tilt. Hold for a few seconds and then bring your bottom back to the floor. Only hold for as long as is comfortable.

3. Stay on the floor with your baby on your tummy. Now just gently raise your head and shoulders to greet your baby! This will help further strengthen your abdominals!

If you have had a C-section and you have had your stitches out then you can still perform this move but just have your baby lying next to you until your scar has safely healed.
