Your Stomach After Pregnancy – Lose It Now or Get Used to it Forever
To many women their
stomach after pregnancy is a big concern. It's often either very large and bloated or else saggy and floppy.
No matter what condition your stomach is in, now is the time to
flatten it using your body’s own natural ability for recovery and
During pregnancy the hormone Relaxin
allows the abdominal muscles to stretch in many ways. Your waistline may have increased in
width by as much as twenty inches and in length by almost eight
Because of the presence of Relaxin, and the way
your body is primed to recover after pregnancy, this presents an amazing opportunity to get
in to great shape and flatten your stomach muscles forever.
During pregnancy, the two bands of muscles
separate down the midline of the body. This is an on
going effect called Diastasis Recti and is completely natural and
Your abdominal muscles will naturally tighten to
some degree, after just three or four days the muscles will start to realign.
However they may take
up to six months to recover fully and unless specific post pregnancy exercises are
followed you may have seen the last of your flat tummy.
If you do want to reshape your stomach
after pregnancy and see dramatic improvements in your shape then you need to follow
a specifically designed tummy tightening programme, such as the one found in ‘The Baby Belly Fat Loss
Any exercise that helps to shorten the muscles
will speed up recovery. These exercises should be started immediately after delivery or as
soon as possible thereafter. The muscles will stay weak
unless they are exercised on a regular basis.
It is vital to avoid performing any exercises that
stretch the stomach and force the rectus muscles further apart as this leads to long term
doming and may consign you to having a rounded stomach after pregnancy
Bear in mind that some of the increase in the size
of your abdomen will be extra body fat gained and this should be eliminated by increasing
activity levels and following a specific post pregnancy diet such as the one found in ‘The Baby Belly Fat Loss
